Great scenic and historic bike tour

Oct 2022

Steve was an excellent guide, sharing historic information along the way. The bike ride was a perfect easy ride along the coast. We stopped often for photos and interesting info.

Enjoyed exploring the Portsmouth area and learning its history by bike. Especially enjoyed the stop at the memorial erected in honor of the burial ground for black residents of Portsmouth, which is now part of the much larger black heritage trail in the US.

What a wonderful way to see and learn about Portsmouth and new castle. Steven was our guide and he made it so fun. A fun ride through the streets and over bridges stopping along the way to learn some history and fun facts about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend. The 2 hours went by too fast!

Perfect way to spend the day

Biking around Portsmouth was wonderful! We called PortCity bike yours on a whim. The owner had our bikes ready, helped us plan a route, and was flexible and easy to work with. I appreciated that they packed little things like a bike lock and a phone holder. We did a 3 hour bike ride, for an affordable price.

Great way to see a town and exercise

The tour was a lot of fun and provided a good overview of the town of Portsmouth.
I would like to have one more day to visit the Strawberry Banke and a few other places we were introduced to while riding !
THis is a great alternative to the bus tours

Great Portsmouth bike tour led by Vinnie

Could not be any more impressed with our great bike tour led by Vinnie. The weather was perfect, the ride was full of history and beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend this 2 hour bike ride through Portsmouth.

Our guide, Paul, was very informative of the area. He was considerate of the cycling abilities of all three of the riders. He kindly offered to take a couple photos as I was a solo traveller. His love of the area shows in his eagerness to share it with others. What a great morning!!

Great way to see Portsmouth! We thought the 2 hour tour was the perfect length of time. Dawn was very informative and gave great recommendations in the area. She was also really good with making sure the whole group was together and very considerate. I highly recommend checking this out!

Had communication with the owner Dawn, when I booked and she was full of great recommendations for Portsmouth. On the day of our ride Vinny took us and he was a great guide. Filled with local information and just the right amount. Felt very safe at all times. Two hour ride flew by. Highly recommend to see the area this way

Port City Bike Tours is phenomenal! Dawn was an incredibly knowledgable tour guide, and she taught us so much about Portsmouth's historical buildings and industries and lore.

If you're visiting Portsmouth, a PortCity Bike tour is a MUST.

We took a 2 hour ride around Portsmouth and some of the surrounding islands. Our guides, Dawn and Vinny, we're fantastic! This ride was great for recreational riders like ourselves. The pace was relaxed and the frequent stops to hear all about the area made this an amazing way to get to know Portsmouth. The 2 hours and 8-1/2 miles goes by in a snap. And now we get to gorge on lunch guilt free!

Thanks PortCity! You were amazing!

We really enjoyed our 2-hour Island and Harbor tour around historic sites in Portsmouth and New Castle.  It was our first time in the area, and a great way to learn about the history and see the sights, while getting exercise and enjoying the beautiful and unique scenery. The tour includes a 21-speed bike and helmet and is a great value and fun way to explore the area.  We learned a lot and had fun!

We had the pleasure of having Jason as our tour guide. The first portion of the trip was filled with fun historical facts, stories and attention was given to the different types of architecture prominent in the city. Then we headed out to the islands. Jason made sure we were aware of every bump, incline and possible traffic challenge. It was so much fun to see all of the small villages and be guided through the back streets. We left knowing so much more about the city and happy to have be able to bike 10 miles like a local.
