Full description

Cruise through the city of Aveiro on a boat ride onboard a traditional Moliceiro boat. Start along the Central Canal of the lagoon, the Ria de Aveiro. Traverse the center of the city, from the garden of Rossio to the old building of the Capitania of the Port of Aveiro. Follow another canal that formerly served as a waterway to the Antonio Maria Campos brick factory, where the Aveiro Cultural and Congress Center was established along with other public services. Then, cruise down Canal das Pirâmides (the pyramids canal), which was built at the beginning of the 19th century and stretches from the old fish market to the central canal. During the summer, enjoy a beautiful landscape made up of hundreds of small white pyramids of salt that represent one of the most characteristic features of this region.

The location was easy to find and all of the staff were friendly, helpful, and informative. The ages in our family group ranged from 5 to 70 years and everyone enjoyed it. We had a great tour of the canals in the city and would recommend this to anyone.

Malgré la réservation nous avons dû faire la queue pour récupérer le billet ainsi que refaire une autre queue pour le départ des personnes qui avait rendez vous un quart d heure et une demi heure avant nous étaient derrière et ne sont pas passés avant donc pas logique pour eux ! Ce. Serait bien de prendre les personnes avec ordre de rendez vous sinon la balade est très sympa

Foi um passeio muito agradável. Recomendo o Alex como guia foi super simpático, extrovertido, brincalhão mas muito competente e profissional. De facto, rimo-nos bastante durante todo o percurso que foi amplamente esclarecedor sobre os pontos principais da cidade e a sua história. A repetir sem dúvida. Obrigada.
