    The trip was interesting, although we felt a little more commentary could have been included in some of the other things that could be seen from the boat. I know we went in April, but it was a lovely warm day in Porto BUT do take a coat/jumper as you head down river it can (and did) get quite chilly!

    The journey was very nice and of adequate duration, but despite telling us that there were seats for all of us who had a ticket, we went on foot the entire journey and like us another large group of people. The feeling is that more tickets than adequate will be sold.

    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.
