We did the cruise from the Gaia side of the river. Boats were smaller, less crowded queues than on the Cais da Ribeira side. Plus the ticket office gave us tickets for free port tasting at 4 locations along the Gaia bank. Cruise is ok, you go under 5 of the 6 bridges and get to see the 6th bridge. Gives a different view point of Porto and Gaia. Cost was 15 euros per person.

I enjoyed the 50 minute cruise along the Douro taking in the 6 bridges of the city. It costs €15 which is not cheap but I found it very relaxing and you get great views of the city as well as the bridges.
The boat was comfortable and went along at a pace slow enough to allow you to savour what you are seeing and take pictures, but fast enough to maximise the amount you take in.
The Dom Luiz bridge is the obvious highlight but I loved seeing the Ribeira, the Sè and Igreja San Francisco and the like from the water.
One if the highlights of my time in Porto and I'd definitely recommend it.

Nice short tour that takes you up and down the river in about an hour. I did this on my first day to get a feel for the size of the city and river (from the water), which was great. It isn't anything spectacular, but it's good value for money and you'll take some great photos.

It was a great one hour cruise tour in a very large boat. It was a hit day in May, and you could sit inside too. We chose outside to see everything clearly. Great explanations of construction and history of both sides of the Douro River. The explanations were in Portuguese and English in pre set recordings. The cruise itself was nice, good speed, not too noisy and really enjoyable. At the end they brought us back to the riverbank and off we went.

2 hours sailing on the douro, crossing the 6 bridges while enjoying the sunset aboard a beautiful yacht (13 meters) and drinking champagne was amazing .. what an experience !

And if you add a wedding proposal, the moment could not be better..

Thank you very much to Cristina of Living Tours for the meticulous organisation of my wedding proposal and also to the two captains who made the moment perfect and unforgettable (she said yes ... 🥰).

Guys, you have now a great idea for your proposal ;)

There are many different companies that offer the six bridges tour and they all seem to have the same itinerary. Board at Ribera and leave there. The cruise is good and worth doing. It is best to link it to other trips as you save more money doing this. We used the Yellow bus company.

Great way to escape the city pavements for an hour. Relaxing cruise along the river to see the bridges and the river banks. There were plenty of options of cruise operators on the quayside in Ribera district, others were available from Gaia where the port warehouses were. The vessel we sailed on wasn't too full and boarding was through a larger cruise vessel that was moored up. Quite nice to look in that one. The water was calm, the sun was out, the views were very pleasant. The cruise went almost to the river mouth. Comfortable and recommended. (we used Dour Azul nearest to the bridge)

The paperwork did not make clear that we needed to present the booking form at one of the stalls on the waterfront which sell boat trip tickets. We wasted a great deal of time working out what we needed to do.Please make the process clear.

Living Tours operates with partners, so when you go to Ribiera Quay after booking online and look for their logo on any of the flags there, you won't see it. Also even though you may have booked online, you still have to print your voucher, which is very difficult to do if you are staying in a hotel or apartment away from home. It took several emails, some in-person negotiating, and a phone call to figure out where I could get a boat that was affiliated with Living Tours and somewhere where I could print the voucher that I bought online. The trip itself was nice and everyone was very kind but I still think it's odd that I couldn't show a PDF or barcode to get on the boat if I purchased online (hey, airlines do it) and also odd that there was zero guidance or visual indication of which boats where aligned with Living Tours. It added a lot of unnecessary stress that I couldn't find where to go and was faced with printing a voucher from my rental apartment with no printer. If I were you, I'd just rock up and buy a ticket on the day (saw cheaper prices too) at the quay instead of buying online through this company.
