This is an overcrowded attraction, with boats going out every half hour packed tight. Indeed it is my belief that the maritime police gave them a ticket whilst we were there for having too many people on board. You had to climb over another boat to get on and then there was no commentary at all. It was just a... More

We enjoyed this cruise up and down the Duoro; comfy outside seating, commentary from the crew in 3 different languages (Portuguese, English and French) on all the important facts and figures as we passed under the bridges, and lots of photo opportunities from River level. Only negative is that they eeked it out a bit on the return journey by... More

Good cruise spoilt by the commentary not using English. Our fault for not asking but given the number of foreign visitors one would assume other languages would have been offered. Turned out to be an expensive waste of time.

A group of 12 of us took the approx 1 hour 6-bridges boat trip in April. Magnficent views of the city from the river. It was a beautiful sunny day, which of course made all the difference. The boat goes up river then down river, takes in 6 bridges at a nice pace. Good photo opportunities. Discounts available for groups... More

For 30 euros for the two of us this was not good value for money. The trip lasted 50 minutes but felt like it had been strung out especially on the route back. No information was provided either as a simple leaflet or to listen to, this was a shame as I am sure architecturally there is lots to say.... More

This boatcompany has six boats and altough it is a touristic tour they have only 1 boat that has a working soundsystem. So you probably get no information about all the beautifull things you see along the waterfront. A true shame. This is going on for ten years now. Boatstaff is also too lazy to sell drinks. A total insult... More

Visiting a city with so much history around the D'ouro River, it makes perfect sense to highlight it with a cruise around the six bridges. Learning about Porto's history is something that tourists want to learn..... That's not what we got.... we spent roughly an hour making a very big circle around the Douro..... No Audio of any sort, No... More
