What people are saying about Foz do Douro

Our 3-hour Segway tour was FUN, pleasant and informative. After getting the hang of the Segways (easy!) and realizing the Portuguese are very polite about letting Segway riders use the sidewalks, we learned so much about the history and current culture of Porto. You do use some balancing muscles in your legs that might not have been worked much recently, so don’t be surprised if you feel a little sore afterwards. But the fun was well worth it. After leaving Porto we are headed to Lisbon and will likely employ a Segway tour there as well.

The 3 hours bike tour was amazing. Carolina, our guide, was interesting and super nice to talk to. She made the experience amazing. We went away from the center and saw some places that we wouldn’t have venture on our own. The parc and the beaches and the waterfront. Biking was very pleasant and Carolina was full of facts for everything we saw on our way. Would definitely recommend! Big thanks to Carolina

The experience is AMAZING! I highly recommend to do it for anyone visiting Porto. Just being on the Segway itself is already fun, but also the astonishing views on the way make this tour one of a kind. The guidance was also very entertaining and informative, only fun facts.

Great tour on a well-adapted electric bike with a super friendly guide (Mickaël) who speaks French perfectly well. We recommend this activity at the start of your stay in Porto for everyone (no need to be athletic).

Thank you very much to micka and Sarah for this great activity !!!!! See you soon and well done !!!
