There are a lot of companies that offer the bridge cruise of the Duoro. We chose this one and were happy. Comfortable seating and it was a lovely cruise. But the commentary was inaudible and we did not learn anything. Still a pleasant hour.

The hour long boat cruise on the Douro river gives one an excellent view of Porto. One learns about the history of various bridges and buildings along the river through the multi-lingual announcements. Wonderful way to spend a relaxed afternoon or evening

Enjoyable and relaxing 50 minute tour. My husband and I chose this provider simply because their boats seemed to hold more people up top. Though back in the line, we had a good choice of seating once on board. The pre-taped explanations of the bridges...More

A pleasant cruise along the river Douro. Very chilled. Not too busy or crowded and our guide (Pedro) was efficient. Tour was well organised. I enjoyed it and I think everyone on board did too. The crew were lovely and the food was not bad....More
