Upon boarding the captain or person responsible started shouting that I could not get my buggy on the boat. If they had told us when purchasing the tix we would have skipped the whole trip. After 2 mins of yelling he let me board the...More

I think the benefit of the 45-50-minute boat ride is to get you acquainted with the layout of the land. Yes, the bridge are cool but only somewhat. It gives you a relatively quick orientation of both sides of the river. Don't expect to learn...More

The cruise went along the duoro river and the huge bridges that connect both sides. It takes about 50 minutes and explanations in portuguese and english

Thank you for your review, Samiya7. We regret that you did not have a good experience aboard our boat. Our 6 bridges Cruise is 15€ per person. The pack with the CitySightseeing bus tour (for 2 days) is 25€ and includes a wine tasting.

All 6 bridges and some other local history. The whole thing takes about 30 minutes and is narrated in English, Portuguese, French and Spanish. The wind sweeping across the river is strong and cold even in 30 degree heat.

The boat trip was nice but very disappointing that the commentary was in French. We weren’t informed of this before boarding. Surely English is THE international language and therefore should be used for commentary purposes.

Done the 50 minute boat tour at 15 euro each. The views are great and its worth doing as you see a lot more from the sea than on the land. You were allowed to take your own drinks on. There was commentary but not...More

Hi. I'd say book in advance as there's loads of people all the time. Saying that, the boats are large so you may be lucky if it's difficult to book before you go. Also some providers sell tickets for a particular day but... More
