What people are saying about Foz do Douro

Magnificent experience !! A 2-hour romantic stroll with an attentive crew. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend this outing and let yourself sail on the Douro under a fado tune (music of your choice) with your glass of port.

We caught the boat at 16:30h which was the sunset boat. It was beautiful, accessible, and super interactive, with explanations about the bridges in Portuguese and English. I usually get sick and I didn't get sick at all.

Something that I would recommend doing without a doubt, both adults and girls will enjoy it.

good value for the money! a perfect way to enjoy 45 minutes of good weather on the river!

loved the description of each bridge. Views were incredible
