Sailed the boat from Gaia side for 12.50 Euro and took some great shots of the city, bridges and its beautiful river. Smaller boats (Rabelos) and thus smaller passenger numbers than on the the boats on opposite shore. No commentary but your tour guide book tells you everything you need to know - plus 3 free port tasting vouchers.

We took the 50 minute boat ride. The best part was the end when we could get off the boat! After the first 10 minutes, there was nothing new to see. If you want a short ride in a boat, this is okay, but it can't compare to a boat ride in Venice which costs less.

We did a river cruise up the Douro River from Porto to Baca D' Alva then a bus ride to Salamanca Spain. We then sailed down the Douro back to Porto taking a week for the whole trip. The countryside along the way was stunning and absolutely beautiful. We also did many side trips along the way tasting and experiencing... More

Either side of the river is stunning with many bridges and at night the lights on both sides although quite different very beautiful. Did the river cruise of the six bridges during the day and just lovely.
