Nice cruise and a pleasant way to discover the city of Porto from the Douro. We enjoyed it and managed to dowload the app. We had good information thanks to the app. We thought the company was ok and the price correct (14€ per person). Have fun!

The Porto Blue boat 50mins river cruise is a total con, we paid 14 euros per adult and bought the ticket immediately just before we got on the boat, at no point were we informed that the audio guide was broken (even though the leaflets and all signs advertised it). There was no tour guide on the boat so you literally just go up and down the river once or twice for 50mins, it is a rip off. When I confronted the staff member after I got off the boat (because of course there was no staff on the boat), they just said yes it's been broken for 6 months. No apology or nothing. Also, the leaflet shows you can hop on and hop off at the other side of the river. You cannot, which means you end up stranded on one side!

We combined this trip i.e. the one-hour cruise with crossing the Dom Luis Bridge, then taking the funicular down to the riverside restaurants in Vila Nova de Gaia. I think there isn't any difference in the various trips but the ones on the Gaia side seemed to have smaller crews. The trick is - here as elsewhere - to get lucky and board just before it leaves. The trip itself makes a good introduction to Porto and Gaia and the old boat we travelled on was fine. Worth the money I'd say.

My wife and I took a one-hour tour of the six bridges on the river. As we cruised the Douro River and soaked in the scenic landscape of Porto, we listened to information on the bridges as we sailed under them. The recording (available in multiple languages) also pointed out historic buildings on either side of the river and played music during breaks in the narration.

The boat is an original from the 1940's and smaller than most which do the 6 Bridges trip. We only had about 15 people on board so plenty of room to move around. No commentary and no music so relaxing and peaceful. Lasted about 50 minutes and cost €14 (most other companies have bigger boats and charge €15).
