Aveiro: Half-Day Tour from Porto with Cruise

The half-day tour begins at the fish market square, where you’ll have great views of the city center. Next you’ll head out on an hour’s cruise along the city’s beautiful water channels. Travel by a typical, yet unique boat called a moliceiro that is decorated with motifs related to the local culture.

What people are saying about Norte Region

We had a very nice experience in Aveiro with our good guide André Vidal. Aveiro and Costa Nova are both very beautiful. We had a small group which is very nice. The guide spook English and French very well and was very experienced and had very much nice stories about the trip but also a lot of other things.

I booked this tour last minute to fill my last half day in Porto and didn't expect so much but I definitely enjoyed this short tour a lot. We started the tour with a boat trip then went to see a beautiful train station before visiting Costa Nova.

Just our favorite activity in Porto! Federico was wonderful and explained everything we needed to know about the main places. Usual guides are not so concerned about giving all the info. Thanks again so much and see you soon!

Our guide Carlos Foncesca was very well versed with the information which he gave us all along the trip to Aveiro and Costa Nova.

Good look at Costa Nova houses but no time to look at beach. The boat ride was really good and our guide was very informative.
