Great skipper with lot of experience in sailing. His instructions while sailing were very clear. As a complete beginner, it was great to experience the whole process of getting the sails up - down and basic sailing maneuver like jibing. We first went towards porto old town and then into the ocean. The wind was 35 knots and the ocean had big waves but the skipper was really great in his maneuver and judgement.

Amazing and super fun and relaxing. It was the perfect day for a sailboat cruise. We could see Porto without walking around among all the crowds. The Port wine was a nice touch and the hosts of the boat were very nice and accommodating.

It was a great way to see the city in a short time, to have fun biking, hear the history and some interesting stories of sights and experience lemon tea and a typical desert. We had a good overview over the city and walked around later.

Wonderful tour of the city. Saw so much more than if we tried to walk it. Our driver was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver through the narrow streets. This was our first tuk tuk experience and it was great fun.

The bikes were a great way to get around a very hilly city. They were fun to ride and our guide was great. We made enough stops so it wasn’t too tiring and we saw a lot of the sights of Porto.
