  • Porto: Six Bridges Cruise with Port Wine Tasting

    1. Porto: Six Bridges Cruise with Port Wine Tasting

    Explore the calm delights of the Douro River by travelling on a typical Rabelo Boat along the pastel-hued riverbanks of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. On this 50 minute cruise, you'll get to breathe Porto's faded but rich history, and glimpse architectural wonders such as the Gustav Eiffel Bridge. Cap off this relaxing date with Porto's underrated majesty by savoring a glass of port wine (get the connection yet?). Program includes an audio-guide for the tour (Portuguese, English, Spanish and French).

    Es un paseo tranquilo e interesante. Perfecto para hacer fotos. La degustación de vinos no estuvo mal porque eramos cuatro, pero si vas solo tendrás que escoger.

Absolutely fantastic!!!!!

If you love a bit of madness and don't mind getting wet, this is for you! The Skipper of the boat was really good fun and we had a great time going up and down the river. We were tight on time when we visited Porto, so the 20 min ride was perfect. You will get wet, so bring a rain jacket. Ladies - it's also a good idea to wear waterproof mascara ;) Would definitely do it again! Enjoy!

The cruise has enchanted me and my mother! The truth is that everything is very good except the glass of wine afterwards. We had a hard time finding the place and at the indicated time they are closed. I guess it was something specific.

You will receive a voucher for a wine tasting that can be redeemed at any time. The shipping shows all the important bridges in Porto and you have very nice motifs.

It's okay. They explain the history of the 7 bridges and then you go to a winery to have a wine and at the same time they try to sell you some bottles of it.

Very exciting, great fun, great way to see the city and the river in a short tome
