    Fabulous leisurely trip down the river on one of the best boats on there. Only 10 people on board so plenty of room for all. This is no commentary on board - for that you need to travel on one of the more crowded boats - but it was very pleasant.

    This was one of best boat tours we have ever done. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The crew was so nice and genuine. The views of Porto and Gaia from the water are spectacular. It’s a little further away from the city than I understood looking at the map but well worth the transit. We are so glad we did this tour and not one of the touristy big boat tours along the river in town!

    The check in process at the marina gate was swift. The boat departed on time. (Don't be late...). There were four parties on the outing, but two of the parties thought they were supposed to be the only ones on the trip. It was a bit uncomfortable for a while as the passengers became angry as the boat operator had to explain their capacity and space availability to everyone as they were boarding (over the frustration of the folks who thought they had an "exclusive" trip) Not sure where they got that idea, But, "Get Your Guide" had a limit of 4 passengers in the booking purchase system that may have given the customer the impression that was the capacity of the boat. (But it was a 50+ foot boat, big enough for the 16 passengers and crew. Once everyone was settled on board, the irate passengers realized there was plenty of space, and the deck hand served a glass of chilled white port, they relaxed and had a good time.
