a very pleasant day that allows you to discover the Douro Valley and taste different Ports. The cruise on the river is a moment of relaxation that allows you to enjoy the landscapes. Ana our guide was able to share her enthusiasm with us.

Easy access and just enough info without lenghty explanations. Good for a quick overview of the city.

Difficulty in finding a place to have paper tickets because it didn’t accept digital tickets

A very pleasant and beautiful walk indeed. We enjoyed it very much.

The bridge tour was very nice, informative and worth seeing!
