The cruise was nice and worth the money. However we found it a bit overcrowded not everyone could sit outside and people were tightly seated together.

It was a very relaxing way to see Porto from the water. A good commentary accompanied the trip. Well worth spending the hour doing this trip!

The boat ride was lovely. Too bad they would not accept our smartphone tickets. We had to wait in line to get new paper tickets and missed the boat. Had to wait an hour in the sun before the next sailing.

There are many reasons that make Porto a dream destination. The 6 bridges of Porto are a true landmark - are you ready to explore them? On this tour, enjoy a traditional 6 Bridges cruise as you follow in the footsteps of the old wine merchants.

Sail along the Douro River once your board the boat at Ribeira Quay and soak in the panoramic views of the beautiful landscape and the red-roofed buildings. Cruise the river on an old-fashioned Rabelo Boat which was used to transport Port Wine from the Douro Valley to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Listen to the history of the bridges from your guide as you sail under them and learn about their constructions and curiosities. To end your tour see the sandy beaches of the seafront area Foz do Douro where the river pours into the ocean. The 6 bridges along the river make for a wonderful postcard too!
