WHY DO A PORTO BIKE TOUR?
Since the 19th century, people have been using a bicycle and it was believed to be a promise of a “splendid extension of personal power and freedom”, according to a New York Times article from 1896.
Its not just a trend that made us offer bike guided tours… we truly believe it is the best vehicle to go around Porto! Plus, it is an eco-friendly and easy to ride vehicle. We have a range of premium bikes and electric bikes of different sizes suitable to children and all adults and because we know that things can happen, we also offer assistance in all our bike guided tours. A helmet will also be provided for everyone on the tour and if you are worried about using it, do not be! Safety and hygiene first, and either the bikes and helmets are clean and disinfected after each tour!
Choose one of our Porto Bike Tour and we will take you pedaling through suburban areas, gardens, street art and all the main Porto highlights – as well as some hidden treasures known only by locals. Just need to decide about whether you prefer a scenic route on the riverside and beach, a street art tour, or a Porto sightseeing ride through the most iconic neighborhoods in the Centre of Porto.
WORRIED ABOUT THE HILLS?
In case you are worried about the hills of Porto, rest assured because we have the solution: electric bikes! In our E-Bike Tour Porto Highlights, we will stop at every highlight we come across and tell you not only about its history but also about interesting and funny facts behind them.
You have probably seen some images of some street art murals in Porto. The way they express each other is almost like they are speaking to us! Of course, we could only cover the distances between these fantastic murals, with the help of the e-bikes.
You have never used an e bike before? Our local storytelling guides will give you a brief explanation on how to use the system, and you will be ready to start!
IT’S LIKE RIDING A BIKE, YOU’LL NEVER FORGET!
For sure you have heard this expression before, and it is true! Scientists say our brain stores this information and even after decades not using a bike, soon you will remember it.
If this is your case, or you just want to leave the hustle and bustle of the center, we recommend you our Old Town & Riverside Bike tour Porto. You will be riding in a mostly flat area, along the river Douro until you reach its mouth where you will see a brand-new bike path. You will follow it up the Atlantic coast until the Porto City Park while learning about the city heritage and its close connection to the River Douro and the Atlantic Ocean.
