Full description

This two-hour boat trip will take you through the Douro River in a traditional boat, the Rabelo. This small craft was used to deliver the Port Wine from the Alto Douro, to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.

From the boat you'll have a privileged view of the Douro Valley, sailing through a stretch of the river not seen from the main roads. You'll see its unique landscapes, with vineyards and terraces and many wineries. The Alto Douro Vinhateiro region was considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001 and is a particularly representative section of the extraordinary scenery of the Douro Demarcated Region, the first demarcated region in the world.

The departure point is in Pinhão, a village in the heart of the Douro, where you'll return at the end of the tour. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to pass by Tua and take a dip in the refreshing waters of the Douro River.

The tour includes an individual audio guide in English, Portuguese, French or German, and a glass of a local Port Wine or Moscatel.

Panoramic cruise in douro
As an amateur fotographers we loved this 2 hour boat tour sorrounded by amazing landscapes of the Douro valley full of vineyards along the rolling hills. Have np doubts, the point of view from the river to the land it´s very diferent from being on a bus or walking. My wife and I were extremely happy with this cruise and enjoyed it greatly!

Good boat trip but bad cabin sound
Good visit to douro on a boat, with some drinks inside both going up and down. However we only got part of the explanation tour because the cabin sound was not good at all. luck that the views were amazing. In the end we aprove. Greeting from Poland
Divertido apesar do calor
Em um dia se sol esta visita pelo douro é muito agradável. Estava um dia bem quente, e foi preciso bastante agua e uns chapeus para nos proteger do calor. felizmente que junto á agua é sempre mais fresco. o guia forneceu boas explicações e detalhes e o copo de moscatel (nao conheciamos) caiu bem. uma excursão divertida e relaxante em um barco tipico rabelo.

Passeio barco no douro
Para pessoas que estão tentando relaxar em uma viagem de barco, as paisagens do vale do douro são fantásticas. Um bom ambiente sem muita gente a bordo e todos com boa energia, incluindo a tripulação. Só foi pena o audioguide não funcionar muito bem, o resto estava perfeito.
