Very nice experience! The guide was very friendly and accommodating. There was tea, soft drinks and wine. You drive to the bridge "Ponte Dom Luis I.", then turn around again and drive out to the open sea. There you can see the beautiful sunset. The tour is highly recommended! :)

Didn’t feel like a tour:) intimate small group of about 14. A 2 hour sailboat cruise enjoying a glass of port while passing by the big tourist boats filled with people! We were so glad to be on our boat!!! Was an amazing way to see porto all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the bridge. Amazing views and circled few times in the historic central area. Didn’t feel rushed and was very enjoyable:) highly suggest.

We had a very romantic and wonderful time doing this tour. It was so calm and the boat driver was very careful. Be aware it gets cold on the boat but they gave us blankets! Overall you can’t go wrong with this tour. We took the group tour and because of the space you could still have your privacy. :)
