The boat trip was very interesting and pleasant. Especially sailing through three locks. The food - breakfast and lunch - was excellent including good wine. But a visit to the CROFT winery ruined everything. They gave us as a taste some pink liquid without taste or smell and with a little alcohol. They claimed it was rosé port wine. I don't know why they made fools of us when we know so much about wine. The bus ride back to Porto was through amazing countryside. It's just a shame that it was already getting dark and we couldn't see much of the beautiful vineyards.

Beautiful but very long boat ride. Only 30 min at the vineyard to sample 1 port very quickly. Breakfast and lunch were good but bring snacks because you won’t eat anything after 12:00. No dinner! Once you get to pinhao you go right to vineyard, rush through that and then you are on a bus back to Porto for 2 hours! If you want a nice boat ride through 3 lochs and see the vineyards, this is the tour for you. Not a wine tasting tour!

We enjoyed the river trip. The boat was not full, which was good as had it been full it might have felt a bit overcrowded. As it was, we started in heavy rain and ended with some good sunshine and sat on the roof for much of the latter part of the journey. However the visit to the vineyard was very short (I think we arrived late). We had one sample of port - a pink one - which was very nice and interesting as something new but not typical. So it would have been good to have the chance to taste other port too. We did buy an extra glass (4 euros) but didn't really have time to drink it. A long day, we were back in Porto well after 9pm.
