“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

One of the bests tours I have done in my life! And the cheapiest one! For only 5eu! A local guide give you a trip by "gondola" over the bests places of Aveiros by river, it's a incredible beautiful place and trip to do! They explain you everything with pacience and kindness. They also speaks in many languages perfectly and gives a good review of things. Definitively not to miss

“A lot of fun , a must do whilst in Aveiro , for only 5 Euros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

A lot of fun . last around 45 minutes , you get a basic feeling of the centre of Aveiro , with some information about the Salt Pools (which seem to be in decline ), the buildings & market along the canals . Its only 5 euros with a very large glass of port , & some small biscuits , plus you seem to spend the time waving to lots of strangers , great entertainment
At the end you can buy a bag of special salt with " lots of special properties " for only one Euro , a different present ? Worth a try

“45 minutes boat tour for only 5€”

The guys at the Hostel told me to go to this boat tour company and they were very nice and friendly people... The canals of the city are amazing, in a sunny day it is gorgeous...

“It is very typical for Aveiro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I know Aveiro for the past 30 years, and it improved very much. Nice clean road (without cars), the old part of the town is very nice, and it is a pleasure to walk around.
