  • Porto: River Douro 6 Bridges Cruise

    2. Porto: River Douro 6 Bridges Cruise

    Enjoy a traditional “6 Bridges Cruise” along the River Douro and follow in the footsteps of the old wine merchants that transported wine from the valley to the wine cellars. Board the boat at Ribeira Quay and sail for 50 minutes along the river. Admire the beautiful landscapes and buildings of Ribeira and Vila Nova de Gaia from the water. Known as "Rabelo Boats," in reference to the old boats that transported wine from the Douro Valley, the cruise is the perfect chance to learn more about the historic bridges that connect Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. Learn more about their construction and curiosities, and upon arrival at the last bridge, see the Foz do Douro where the river pours into the ocean.

    It was really fun, the people were nice and we did not have to wakt long. There are 2 boats and one leaves every half hour. I would suggest taking one at 6 like we did, after the boatride we went for a hike to go up on one of the bridges and saw a beautiful sunset. We also had golden hour etc so we were really happy that we took the boat at 6. The people spoke excellent english! There is also a cable car ride by the boats. Wich is a really fun experience aswell!!

    Both the rides were quite enjoyable, and the layout quite nice of the important things to see. The only issue was that of checking which plug in worked, luckily for me Spanish and Portuguese aren’t too far off but at a certain point I noticed I began to lose attention since well I don’t speak Portuguese but Spanish. Other than that I would advise wearing some sunscreen since I got completely burned since it was a nice perfect sunny day. Overall great ride but fix your sockets on the bus!

A really great early evening experience. The tour of the lodge was informative and most interesting. This was followed by an excellent 50 minutes of fado music with two musicians and two singers. Whilst we listened to the music we drank two port wines, a white and a tawney. I can recommend this wholeheartedly.

It was a very enjoyable visit. The card is excellent because it gives us unlimited access to transportation as well as a discount on visiting tourist places in the city.

I was thinking that would be just some small wine tasting but it ended up being a super cool musical experience, totally recommend!

The card gave us many discounts on venues and was very handy for transport. Definitely recommend!

A true Fado show that would please travelers and locals alike.
