Overview

PortCity Bike Tours is locally owned and independent and our guides are members of the community. Our tours are all inclusive and we strive to provide the most historically accurate, unique, and extensive tours in Portsmouth and the surrounding area. We believe that the best way to see this city is from the seat of a bicycle. Our guides are Portsmouth residents, experts on local history, lovers of architecture, sports geeks, and most importantly, expert city cyclists. They will show you the best that our city has to offer - from hidden nooks and crannies to the big name sights. What really makes our tours unforgettable is the closeness you will feel to the sights from the seat of a bicycle. Instead of driving by in a bus, you can get up close and personal and take in the view while your guide tells the tales, ask questions, and take plenty of photos. Check our calendar for tours and times.

My husband and I did the Sunday morning 10a Island Bike Tour. It was a beautiful ride during the quieter time of day. Very enjoyable way to get in a bit of exercise, while learning about local lore and history.
