Reviews

Moliceiro experience with soft eggs
The small trip departs from the city center and follows the Ria de Aveiro. The traditional boat is called moliceiro and some of them are beautifully painted. Serafim, our guide, explained that the boat was called moliceiro because before was used to colect moliço which is a kind of aquatic herbs that were use to fertilise the land. What called me more attention is the names and colors of the ships. They can be very detailed and usually strong.

Kaunis ratsastaa
Se on kaunis perinteinen veneretki aveirossa. Kanavien läpi kulkeminen kestää noin tunnin tai niin voimme maistaa kaupungin tyypillisen makean "pehmeät munat".

Nice cruise in Aveiro
Aveiro is a small but charming site that has some canals like venice and thats why we can hear several times that it´s the Venice of Portugal. Liked the attention of the master of the ship and the info that our guide provided.
