    I booked this tour online with no expectations and it was a great tour. Although it was quick (30ish min), it did help us get familiar with the area. Our guide Bruno was able to point out different attractions and restaurants to try. He was very knowledgeable, funny and spoke 3+ languages. Overall the tour was great.

    Great, the guide spoke French correctly, he was super nice, but only 30 minutes by boat

    We really liked this tour of the canal. We got to know a bit of Aveiro, since we only spent one day.
