Whilst down on the Ribeira area of Porto you will come across numerous places selling tickets for this cruise.
It really doesn’t matter who you choose to sail with as they are all very similar and follow the same route.
At time of writing the cost was 15euro per adult, and the cruise takes 50 minutes. It is popular. The boat has toilet facilities onboard. It is a gentle pace with recorded commentary in various languages. The 6 bridges are spoken about along with other buildings that are on the river bank. You start and finish at the same location.
Definitely worth a go, it’s only 50mins and you get a really different view of the area from the water.

We did the cruise from the Gaia side of the river. Boats were smaller, less crowded queues than on the Cais da Ribeira side. Plus the ticket office gave us tickets for free port tasting at 4 locations along the Gaia bank. Cruise is ok, you go under 5 of the 6 bridges and get to see the 6th bridge. Gives a different view point of Porto and Gaia. Cost was 15 euros per person.

I enjoyed the 50 minute cruise along the Douro taking in the 6 bridges of the city. It costs €15 which is not cheap but I found it very relaxing and you get great views of the city as well as the bridges.
The boat was comfortable and went along at a pace slow enough to allow you to savour what you are seeing and take pictures, but fast enough to maximise the amount you take in.
The Dom Luiz bridge is the obvious highlight but I loved seeing the Ribeira, the Sè and Igreja San Francisco and the like from the water.
One if the highlights of my time in Porto and I'd definitely recommend it.

The boating company knew nothing of the booking and refused boarding until after I phoned Living Tours Viagens e Turismo twice, and the second time they spoke to Touro Do Douro (boat company) and convinced them that our tickets are ok. Only then were we allowed to board after mumbles and grumbles of the boating company. I don’t blame them. They say this is the first time they see this ticket - so blame is with whoever is responsible for telling these companies that trips can be booked via trip advisor.

Since we were only allowed to board after everyone else, our family of 5 had to be split up. We couldn’t all sit on the deck, even though we were there first before everyone else. So that contributes to my “poor” score.

Besides this, the trip itself was very basic with a recording playing with a description of what you’re seeing. Not very interesting, no passion from a real live person telling you about their wonderful city… if you have to choose take a smaller boat or rather do a walking or tuktuk tour. Much more value for your money.

There are various companies providing the same tour. We didn't book in advance, instead we took a boat from the quieter side of the river at Vila Nova de Guia rather than joining the longer queues at Ribiera on the Porto bank. We were on the pirate boat! Lovely to see the views from the boat and everyone charges 15 euros per adult.

It was a great one hour cruise tour in a very large boat. It was a hit day in May, and you could sit inside too. We chose outside to see everything clearly. Great explanations of construction and history of both sides of the Douro River. The explanations were in Portuguese and English in pre set recordings. The cruise itself was nice, good speed, not too noisy and really enjoyable. At the end they brought us back to the riverbank and off we went.

2 hours sailing on the douro, crossing the 6 bridges while enjoying the sunset aboard a beautiful yacht (13 meters) and drinking champagne was amazing .. what an experience !

And if you add a wedding proposal, the moment could not be better..

Thank you very much to Cristina of Living Tours for the meticulous organisation of my wedding proposal and also to the two captains who made the moment perfect and unforgettable (she said yes ... 🥰).

Guys, you have now a great idea for your proposal ;)

this seemed like one of those experiences that everybody googles on the internet and wants to do it because it is a "must do" thing in Porto but you can totally skip it. The ticket you purchase online needs to be exchanged for an actual ticket so plan to arrive 30-45min prior to your planned departure time or be prepared to be put on for the next cruise. Last one leaves at around 7pm. Nothing wrong about the cruise itself, it was a basic 50min trip back and forth under Porto's bridges but without proper background description, we didnt really find any meaning to it (they have the recording paying in 4 diff languages but it is completely out of sync and started repeating the same thing in the middle thus giving inaccurate descriptions of the bridges). If you have limited time in Porto, can totally skip

Don't be confused by the title. This is mostly a walking tour with a ticket for a river cruise thrown in at the end of the tour. At the start of our tour the guide told us it was too busy to park at the first two locations so we walked to them. We were then driven around the down (very little of interest) and at the end dropped off at the river cruise location with a ticket to the "six bridges cruise". We were told that was the end of the tour and we would have to find our own way home. This is definitely a "bait and switch" description as it did not include items described (e.g. entry tickets to some of the locations).

Nice short tour that takes you up and down the river in about an hour. I did this on my first day to get a feel for the size of the city and river (from the water), which was great. It isn't anything spectacular, but it's good value for money and you'll take some great photos.
