Full description

Cruise through the city of Aveiro on a boat ride onboard a traditional Moliceiro boat. Start along the Central Canal of the lagoon, the Ria de Aveiro. Traverse the center of the city, from the garden of Rossio to the old building of the Capitania of the Port of Aveiro. Follow another canal that formerly served as a waterway to the Antonio Maria Campos brick factory, where the Aveiro Cultural and Congress Center was established along with other public services. Then, cruise down Canal das Pirâmides (the pyramids canal), which was built at the beginning of the 19th century and stretches from the old fish market to the central canal. During the summer, enjoy a beautiful landscape made up of hundreds of small white pyramids of salt that represent one of the most characteristic features of this region.

Despite the reservation we had to queue to collect the ticket as well as make another queue for the departure of the people who had an appointment a quarter of an hour and a half hour before us were behind and did not pass before so not logical for them ! This. Would be good to take people with appointment order otherwise the ride is very nice

It was a very pleasant ride. I recommend Alex as a guide, he was super friendly, outgoing, playful but very competent and professional. In fact, we laughed a lot during the whole tour, which was very enlightening about the main points of the city and its history. To be repeated without a doubt. Thanks.

The super nice guides !!!! They make the trip very pleasant and very fun. It's a treat. The tour is very nice to see, it is worth it. You don't see much more than walking but you see it differently and it's cool to take a break from so much walking. Aveiro in general is very good. I recommend the boat ride.
