Boat Trips in the river Mondego The only way to contemplate the beautiful landscape of Coimbra by the river is on board of the iconic "O Basofias". "O Basofias" is a vessel that holds up to 60 passengers, and provides to its visitors a singular experience, in an exclusive way. On a 50 minutes boat trip, you can admire all the river view monuments, such as the "University of Coimbra", "Se Velha", "Almedina Tower", "Santa Clara-a-Velha" and "Santa Clara-a-Nova" (among others), from the river. This boat trip is also a privileged way to admire the medieval city's architecture, as well as some recent contemporaneous architecture like the cork "Portugal Pavilion" building (attraction in Hannover Expo 2000 exhibition), "Pedro e Ines" and "Rainha Santa`s" bridges, and others. If you are coming on an excursion group, you can also enjoy a dining experience with traditional Portuguese Cuisine. At the end of your meal (lunch or dinner) you can also enjoy what most represents the culture of this city - "Fado de Coimbra" Show.

In a city of narrow cobbled streets and steep hills this is by far the best way to travel round and see all the sites, described by a local who knows the history. Can get very hot so remember water and sun-cream. Price also includes the river boat cruise and some local discounts.

Great way to get around this city with its steep narrow lanes, as you can go places where bigger vehicles are unable to get access. The tuk tuk has seat belts and you get a very good view.

In deed, tIndeed, this is the best City Tour in Coimbra. On the Tuk Tuk City Tour, you discover all the city main landmarks. The driver makes the description of the places that the Tuk Tuk passes by! Super You can also call the Tuk Tuk to pick you up at the hotel and start the tour from there!

I had a fight with trypadvisor to make sure that this atraction is included... I called and they pick me up on the hotel. Coimbra is full of hills, so this is an excent way to visit it without making 'an olimpic games preparation'.... Plus, the driver knows it all, so he stops in all major places of interest... My...
