Great activity, however, not enough information provided about the start of the tour. Turns out GetYourGuide reservation has to be exchanged for a regular ticket at the ticket office (there were 2 different ones), confusing start of the activity, otherwise lovely cruise

Very nice but keep in mind It’s nothing really over exciting, it’s a slow boat cruise to a pre recorded narration in a few languages. At just under an hour though it is a nice opportunity to sit down for rest when you’ve been walking around all day on those hills. Good photo opportunities of both sides of the river and you do learn a little about the bridges, if I did it again I would bring a bottle of wine.

Even though it was overcast and a bit chilly on the water, this was a great cruise. There is inside and outdoor seating so you can escape from the weather, if needed. There is a recording that points out the highlights as you go. This is a great way to see Porto!
