The boat experience on the Duoro was very great. It would have been nice to do a short lap on the Atlantic before returning to the port. But I can highly recommend the trip to everyone. Alois Iten from Switzerland

Great time. The people who supervise the activity are very friendly and speak in English. The cruise allows you to take a refreshing break during your stay in Porto. You can go there with your eyes closed.
