We had an amazing day to enjoy the city of Porto by bike. Even last minute changes we had to make to the group was all handled very professionally and cooperative. The tour was a perfect match between interesting and beautiful Portugese history/architecture and fun biking. It is easy for people of all fitness. Mostly down hill/flat and maybe 1 medium hill going up. Traffic can be a bit chaotic but the tour guide manages it perfectly and safely! But probably the best part was Marta the tour guide. A super enthousiastic, smart and friendly tour guide that just made it an amazing and unforgettable experience. Thanks Marta 10/10.

We went on a tour of Barcelos, Braga, and Guimaraes with José and his companion Evangeline (?) and it was a great day. They picked us up right outside our place in central Porto in the morning, and then we headed to the street market in Barcelos (which runs on Thursdays... we didn't buy anything, but it was fun to experience)... Other than the market, Barcelos is a fairly sleepy town, feels pretty "local" and off the beaten path, though it is famous for the legend of the "Rooster of Barcelos" which has become a symbol across all of Portugal. From there, we headed to Braga, which has something like 26 churches -- and we got to take a look at probably a dozen of them over the course of the day, including the impressive Cathedral which was a major seat of Catholic power in the area... in addition to the nearby Bom Jesus, which is beautifully located up a mountain at the end of a long-stretching staircase (although unfortunately they are doing renovations inside the church right now... but the exterior views are the star of the show, anyway.) Finally, we made our way to Guimaraes, the "birthplace" of Portugal since this is where the first king, Alfonso Henriques was born, and where he battled his mother to declare independence from Spain (long story. The guides will tell it to you!) There is a castle here, but we walked past it and spent time touring the more grandiose Dukes manor nearby. The town itself is also pleasant to walk through -- quaint and medieval in its layout, but still a fairly large city. After all of this, we were quite satisfied but, even though the tour was technically done, José was nice enough to show us a few more sights... he had time, so he extended the tour to do a little detour down the coastal region, seeing the beach towns and fisherman villages, such as Vila Nova do Conde, with a historical Portuguese sailing ship and a couple more interesting churches. Oh, I forgot to mention... this is billed as a "small group tour" which would have been fine, but it ended up being a private tour for just the two of us! Even better!

Anyone who loves wine will absolutely love the Douro Valley and wine tour and the services from Oporto Sensations Tour are extraordinary. In Porto you'll be picked up at your hotel or apartment and learn all about the region as you are chauffeured to the Douro Valley. Our guide, Pedro, was incredibly knowledgeable in the region and was a joy to converse with over a lunch that was included in the very reasonable price, followed by a one hour boat tour of the valley also included. Two wineries are visited and the tours were very enjoyable and there is no pressure to purchase anything even after a few wine tastings. This is a family owned business and you'll definitely feel the personal attention which you never receive with the big commercial company tours. They offer other tours as well and this is now my go to tour operator in Porto

We picked up our car and once we were surgically implanted, we were off! We followed the pre destined GPS route. What fun, but not for the faint hearted driver! From the looks and expressions from pedestrians and other drivers, you would think that we had just landed from the planet Zod! We felt like minor celebrities! But do not be put off - electric cars are the future for city Travel! Next came lunch at Chez Lapin. Food was great, plenty of it and the staff were attentive. The boat trip was informative and relaxing and the visit to the Port Museum (and subsequent glass) gave a glimpse into a bygone age. Tremendous value for money.
