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

The trip took 50 minutes and we went under 5 bridges. We only saw the 6th (farthest east) bridge from a distance. There was both indoor and outdoor seating for different weather. At booking at a kiosk, they told us that the audio would be...More

The cruise was going to be 50min and ended up being 30min which was disappointing. But apart from that, no complaints. It took us under all 6 bridges of Porto and there was a recorded guide talking about points of interest. The boat wasn't crowded...More

We booked the river cruise as part of a package including tram rides and a wine cellar tour. The cruise and cellars were on a single ticket which was retained by cruise staff, preventing us from going to the cellars. The cruise itself was pleasant....More

This is an overcrowded attraction, with boats going out every half hour packed tight. Indeed it is my belief that the maritime police gave them a ticket whilst we were there for having too many people on board. You had to climb over another boat...More

We enjoyed this cruise up and down the Duoro; comfy outside seating, commentary from the crew in 3 different languages (Portuguese, English and French) on all the important facts and figures as we passed under the bridges, and lots of photo opportunities from River level....More

Good cruise spoilt by the commentary not using English. Our fault for not asking but given the number of foreign visitors one would assume other languages would have been offered. Turned out to be an expensive waste of time.
