We bought tickets from a shop and they booked us onto a 6.30pm tour which was too late for the port tasting, but we could do that later in the week. Using the Porto card got the price down from 15 to 12 each. We...More

This place is pretty shady. So, they lure you in in the middle of the tourist area and get you to buy a ticket. It's only 15 Euros per person, you get an hour on the river, and they will explain what you are looking...More

The 6 bridge river cruise is a great way to see Porto. We were told there would be port and a commentary and we got neither which was disappointing. However, we still had a great time. There was plenty of space inside and out and...More

A nice way to spend an hour, there are a few companies offering the same cruise, the smallest queue won the day for us, 15 euro each isn't cheap but you're on holiday and these things have to be done. Sit back and enjoy the...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
