    This is a well travelled path for visitors to Porto and a lovely way to see the city from a different perspective. If I had a slight criticism it would be that the commentary is a little sparse: we have done a similar trip in Lisbon where there was a light-hearted and free-flowing banter throughout. Nonetheless, this is a great way to pass an hour while in this very welcoming and special city.

    Cruise through the Douro interesting. Beautiful views of the 6 bridges and the Ribeira. Highly recommended.!!! Although it lasts about 50 minutes, it seemed short. An audio explains in several languages the most interesting about the bridges and important buildings of the Ribeira. You have to exchange the online ticket for a physical one at one of the points of sale there. That information should be given, because if you don't exchange it you can't board.

    Very good at the level of the cruise .... On the other hand when we have the reservation vouchers I do not see the point of requeuing for a ticket ... and the same for other visits we have had the case Otherwise we might as well take them on the spot directly To report
