We have just returned home after a wonderful trip to Portugal that included a self guided tour of the Algarve coast and it was amazing! From pick up at our hotel by Luís to drop off back in Lisbon every day was an adventure topped off by arrival at a perfect location for our nightly layover with our luggage waiting! The drive to Sagres was full of information about the regions and our orientation when we arrived at our hotel the first night was first class ( complete with port!). We were well equipped with everything we required and were constantly in awe of the amazing sights that we would not have been able to experience if we were not on bikes. The accommodations were all as described and never disappointing and breakfasts were extremely satisfying. The entire experience far surpassed our expectations and we would highly recommend Portugal Bikes to anyone interested in discovering Portugal by bike! Many thanks!

The Charming Pousadas-Guided Tour


We have just returned from visiting The Pousadas of Alentejo on a tour with Portugal Bike. Although we travel widely for business and pleasure our travel experience with Portugal Bike was an experience of a life time.

Met by our guides Ricardo and Andre, we were treated to unbelievable biking, touring,eating and experiencing the hospitality and comfort of the beautiful pousadas of Alentejo.

Ricardo and Andre are incredibly knowledgable and made the biking effortless and enjoyable. Their knowledge of their beautiful Portugal (from wine to history) was inspiring and informative. Our tour was planned but not over scheduled, keeping safety and enjoyment in mind at all times. We were so taken care of every step of the way, without feeling like tourists. The pousadas we stayed in were chosen by Portugal Bike. Each had it's own charm and historical significance and we were so privileged to be able to experience these Portuguese treasures. (We usually avoid tours whenever possible so the fact that we enjoyed Portugal Bike's is amazing.)

All of the staff at Portugal Bike are incredible and Cristina makes the booking process so smooth, replying to emails promptly and giving helpful info. The equipment was wonderful and easy to use--everything was perfect.

We never write reviews but we highly recommend Portugal Bike to any one wishing to have a unique and terrific experience visiting Portugal. We are already planning our next trip through Portugal Bike with our adult children and can't wait to share this adventure with them.

We had a great time, it was very well organized, our bikes were excellent and the places we stayed in phenomenal. The routes chosen were really fantastic, and we saw so many beautiful views, met great people, sipped coffee in tiny villages and just had an amazing time.

Cristina and Jose do an amazing job to ensure you will have a great cycling vacation with them. This is our second time with Portugal Bike which says a lot for us because we generally do not go back to the same place twice; there is too much to see in the world. Portugal Bike daily rides are longer allowing for more time in the saddle to enjoy the country side. With some tour groups you are shuttled around but the routes that Jose has selected you are able to ride each day from your hotel to the next destination. The bicycle are meticulously maintained and operate flawlessly. Cristina and Jose select the restaurants and fine local wines so as to be able to enjoy the Portuguese culinary. The Algarve is a beautiful region of Portugal and not to be missed. We are hoping that Portugal Bike will expand to other countries in Europe so that we can ride again with Cristina and Jose!

My husband and I had an awesome biking trip with Portugal Bike Tours. Jose and Cristina were exceptional hosts. From the moment we arrived until the very end they went over and above to make it the best experience ever. We will definitely consider another biking trip with them in the future.

Thank you again for all the great memories, the amazing biking experience and sharing your beautiful country with us.
