Just boating trough the Douro river, up for a while then back via same way. One hour boat trip is enough. There's some drinks on board, but on payment: they only offer a small glass of porto wine. No audio guide on board.

We have been so lucky on our entire trip to Portugal and the boat trip was no exception. We booked a one hour trip, as any longer and I tend to fall asleep, no matter how stunning the scenery. We were on the last tour...More

Yes I believe you can do that. Most likely they won’t be fully booked for each cruise. Of course it depends on how many people you come with. Best to call them or try to see if they have website. Good luck- enjoy!
