TukTour along the left bank of the river Douro- TukTour Porto

Vila Nova de Gaia developed a lot in the eighteenth century and it hosts the greatest Port Wine Cellars ever since. We suggest a ride along the left bank of the river Douro in electric tuktuk, accompanied by an expert guide. An original and funny way to explore the riverside in a silent, comfortable and non-polluting vehicle.
Tour covering: “Rabelo” boats – typical boats that used to transport the barrels, in Spring, from the Douro region to Vila Nova de Gaia; terraces by the Port Wine Cellars with a nice viev over the Luis I Bridge; Arrábida Bridge, São Pedro de Afurada, typical fishermen village known by its traditions and S. Pedro celebrations; restaurants in Afurada serving the traditional barbecued sardines with “Broa de Avintes” (maize and rye bread); Douro Marina; Nature Reserve in the Douro Estuary. Nearby you will find the beautiful Lavadores Beach, offering an amazing sunset.
