It was a good boat ride. Had some stories in English and Portuguese over the microphone as we passed the bridges. It leaves every half hour but you have to go 10 min before boarding if you wanna get in the boat (or wait for the next time slot). Beautiful sites.

Definitely worth booking

We booked this boat tour in advance from the UK. It was easy to arrange on line, and it saved us queuing for tickets on the day. A most enjoyable trip, learning some basic history of the Duoro. And you get a different prospective of Porto from the river. This leisurely trip lasts a little under an hour.

The cruise was nice. We sat on the top deck and there was information about various landmarks coming through the speakers while we went up and down the river looking at bridges. The only thing I didn't like is needing to go to the office first to print tickets because I don't usually have printer access while traveling. Getyourguide made it a bit difficult to find the name of the actual provider and there's lots of boat companies leaving from roughly the same location.
