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

We enjoyed a 50 minute cruise along the river, the last one of the day at 6:30pm meaning the sun was low in the sky and reflected off the water. The views of Porto and the 6 bridges of the Douro River were gorgeous, especially...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

You need to stay in queue, especially if you like to get a seat outdoor (poor view if you seat indoor). Unclear where the queue of your boat starts, as boats are going every 30 minutes. The best views are from the quay and from...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
