An unforgettable journey:
The cruise is with no doubt a unique moment and offers a fantastic perspective of Porto seen from its element – the river. It is in fact the river that transmits all of the mystic atmosphere that one feels when walking through the streets of Porto. It is also from the river that one can enjoy the magnificent and unique view of the highlights of Porto, such as the Tower of Clérigos, the Cathedral, the Stock Exchange (Palácio da Bolsa), the Old Quarter of Ribeira, the D.Luis Bridge, and all the Porto Wine Cellars on the opposite bank.
Rableo boats - wooden sailboats, one of the symbols of the city, which were once used to transport the famous Port wine from the Douro valley to the Wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
The trip consists in a one hour cruise, through the waters of the Douro, passing under the bridges until the mouth of the river.
On board we will have a Welcome Drink – Port Tonic will be served!
Considered to be one of the world’s finest and most complex wines, Port wine is best appreciated when tasted in its city of origin - Porto.
Our program goes on for a visit to one of the places that defined the history of Porto, such as the Wine Cellars in Gaia, where several of the companies that make this wine are located.
An invitation for a detailed visit to one of the wine cellars; where one can see the aged wooden barrels in which the port is slowly matured and learn about the history of a wine that is now famous across the world.
End the visit with a memorable tasting of the precious Port Wine!
