3/8 River cruise

You can’t come to Porto and not experience the famous Six Bridges cruise. This classic boat trip down the Douro river gives you the chance to see the dazzling sights of the city and breathtaking natural landscape, while giving little tired legs a rest. Hop aboard one of the old Rabelo boats, used to carry Porto’s wine cargoes centuries ago, then sit back and relax as you set sail under the city’s six iconic bridges. There’s so much to take in on both banks during the 50-minute cruise and children will love the chance to see the impressive bridges up close as you sail beneath them. It pays to book your tickets in advance, then arrive 10 minutes early so you can grab a spot at the bow, rather than inside the boat. Just make sure you bring sun hats, sun cream, water and snacks for the kids to have all bases covered.
