Full description
Experience Porto in a whole new way on this 2-hour private sailing trip aboard the Argonauta, a 31-foot, charming and classic motor boat, built by the reputed Swedish boatyard Hallberg-Rassy. The noise of Porto will be quickly forgotten as you sail out onto the Douro River with the sea breeze in your hair. Sailing through Porto allows you to take in the famous Ribeira and view the typical Porto houses as they were meant to be seen, from the water. Plus, you'll enjoy spectacular views of Arrábida Bridge and Dom Luís I bridge. The tour departs from Douro Marina and ends in the mouth of the Douro River. Enjoy a complimentary glass of port wine or water as you sail along and marvel at the incredible views.

The experience of the trip would not have been the same without the tour with Raul, if you are reading this review and you are in doubt, you can definitely go, at the time of closing I was in doubt because we had other options (in a group) with the same itinerary , but the private tour is much more exciting, Raul offered us a tasting and throughout the tour he passed on all his knowledge to us, do this tour on the first day, because then on the other days you can get to know every corner, on foot, and take the emotion of the story that I'm told on the tour. Other than that, he gave us tips on restaurants, which only a native Portuguese could give us.

Impressive Raúl, his knowledge, his sympathy and the affection with which he treats you. A ride on his beautiful sailboat that leaves you speechless

Terrific trip with the very knowledgeable Raul, who was able to speak to us in English and tell us all about the area. The boat is lovely and a good example of her type. We tasted port and I discovered which one I liked....having thought I didn't!
