This tour has the most fantastic views from Porto.
We planned this tour thinking of the wonderful and distinctive landscapes that Porto has to offer along the Douro River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean, in Foz do Douro.  It takes 6/8 hours and is very easy, since we ride on flate surfaces, at most of the time.
It starts on our shop, passing the Palácio de Cristal, riverside, the S. Francisco church and Ribeira. After that we cross to the other river side through Luiz I bridge, reaching Gaia. From Gaia river side we can take the best pictures towards Porto's old town.
Then we ride towards Afurada, where we take a boat returning to Porto, but now heading to the Atlantic Ocean.
Before we arrive the Matosinhos beach (Northern Porto) we are still visiting Passeio Alegre, the Felgueiras lighthouse, Foz, Castelo do Queijo, Edifício Transparente and City park.
We will make a lunch stop in a Restaurant in Matosinhos and after it we will return to Porto through the city park, Pasteleira park and University area before reching the store again.
