Discover the Portuguese city's neighbourhoods including Quintandona, the Castromil gold mines, and the Castro de Monte Mozinho Neolithic enclave with this Porto Buggy Adventure.
Porto Buggy Adventure
When making your reservation you can choose one of the following options:
2 hour tour
We'll pick you up at your hotel in Porto at 8 am and head to where the buggies will be waiting for us, on the outskirts of the city. Once we get into these vehicles... the fun starts!
During the next two hours, we'll cross a green landscape full of vineyards and valleys until we reach the Castromil gold mines. Did you know that mining activity in this area of the Iberian Peninsula began in Roman times?
The tour will continue to Quintandona, a beautiful Portuguese village with houses built in slate. After getting to know some curiosities about this special place, we'll return to Porto. The arrival at your hotel is scheduled for 11 am.
3 hour tour
At 2 pm, we'll leave from your hotel in Porto and head to the buggy parking to start a 3 hour route. To begin this harder tour we'll pass through some sections of the Portugal Rally.
We'll then visit the same location as in the previous option and head to the Castro de Monte Mozinho, a fortified enclave dating back to the Neolithic period, also known as the "City of the Dead".
After learning about the history of the archaeological site we'll return to your hotel in Porto, arriving at 6 pm.
Each vehicle has a maximum capacity of one pilot and three passengers.
