Great tour
Thiago was a great tour guide. Totally recommend him. It was a very nice walking tour
6 bridges tour - boat trip
Exchanging the voucher for tickets was a bit chaotic and could have been handled better by the representatives at the ticket counter. Also, based on previous reviews I was expecting the cruise to include a little bit more information about the bridges by sound system or commentary, but I guess that is only included with other cruises as it wasn't in this one. So if you are just looking for a relaxing cruise along the river, this is fine and enjoyable. Boats are not too crowded which gives you a good view no matter where you sit. Great to take nice foots.
porto boat tour
We bought online and went to the pier in Ribeira, showed the voucher to the guys that were in a booth near the boat, got quickly onboard for the 6 bridges boat tour in porto and surprise, surprise meet a curious man that had a Dali like mustache that had a lot of knowledge about the city and it's six bridges. He was better than the sound system :D

porto 6 bridges cruise
The 6 bridges cruise in porto is a very pleasant and cheap way of seeing Porto landmarks and the port wine cellars on the other side of the river.

The cruise was very well done: all seats on the boat give you a great view (though I recommend sitting on the edge of the boat). It doesn’t matter which side you sit on, as the route is round-trip. The views are breathtaking, and the commentary is provided in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish. This boat sits higher than other boat tours offered, giving you a wonderful view. Would highly recommend!
Great boat route on the Douro River
A panoramic view of Ribeira and the 6 incredible bridges. 100% recommendable!

Porto zes bruggen cruisehaven
De activiteit is nieuwsgierig en plezierig maar er ontbreekt een uitleg over elk van de verschillende bruggen, op deze manier zou de route completer zijn geweest

A very enjoyable trip

Excellent view of Porto
Takes just 50 mins and you can see all the bridges including Dom Luis Bridge by Eiffel's assistant. You can even see from a distance the river entering the sea. You can get the beautiful view of colourful buildings on one side and monastery and valley on the other side. Worth the money and time. Vijayawada, India
Worth doing!
This was a reasonably priced way to spend maybe an hour. It allows great views and photo ops. After- stop for a carafe of sangria and relax near the water! Durham, North Carolina
