Fabulous from start to finish

Wonderful crew, professional, friendly & knowledgable, we had the most perfect trip. I got a reminder text before hand to tell us the weather conditions and remind us to bring wind jackets (lucky for us the weather was great so they weren’t needed). The boat was there waiting for us, absolutely stunning and in beautiful condition. We went out to sea where we could all have a go steering and trimming the sails, then we cruised along the river enjoying the views sipping the cold drinks and eating the nibbles (provided) while the skipper pointed out buildings of interest. We felt really well looked after and didn’t want to get off when we returned to the marina! We even received a photo of us all and a thank you after. I felt the whole experience was great value for money and definitely the highlight of our visit to Porto.

Gorgeous tour, great guide/captain, all around amazing experience!

Paulo, the owner/operator was a very nice guy and definitely made us feel welcome once we got on board. We got lost going there and ended up being a half hour late, but he was kind enough to extend our time to make up for it. Brought us some breakfast, waters and beers for the trip. We got to actually 'sail' ourselves for a bit out into the Atlantic, which was pretty cool. Once we were up river we were right on top of the Ribiera and there were some gorgeous views. Would totally do this again!

Super friendly skippers. Very nice and clean boat. Great experience. It is important to take a thick jumper and ideally a windproof coat.
