        What a great way to spend a couple of hours and see Portsmouth! Our tour guide Paul, was fantastic - what a great storyteller! The tour was a leisurely 10 mile bike ride, visiting multiple scenic locations, colored with tidbits of history and information about the city. Paul was very entertaining, well spoken and a pleasure to ride with. I highly recommend this tour if you want to explore Portsmouth from a different viewpoint!
