Private Electric Tuk Tuk Sightseeing Tour of Historic Porto

Seeing Porto on a private Tuk Tuk is a one of a kind experience. Due to their electric motor, the tuk-tuks are entirely silent, which will allow you to hear your guide on busy roads. Porto is an incredible city, but its hills are not for the faint of heart, instead of going up and down the hills by foot, why not grab a tuk-tuk and get an overview of this gorgeous city without breaking a sweat? Comfort, ease and information!
