This cruise takes in Porto's 6 bridges and is the city's most popular attraction. Don't miss it!
Six Bridges Cruise
During the six bridges cruise, we'll navigate along the Douro from the Arrábida bridge, the longest in the city at the mouth of the river, to the Freixo bridge, found at the far east of Porto.
As well as the aforementioned, we'll cross the Don Luis I bridge (constructed in the 19th century and 385m long) the Infante Dom Henrique bridge (built in 2003) María Pía bridge (designed by one of Gustave Eiffel's associates), and the São João railway bridge.
And more than just bridges, during the cruise you can also enjoy the best views of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, where the most famous wineries in Porto can be found. And of course, the cruise takes place on a traditional Rabelo boat, with which the barrels were transported from the vineyards of the valley to the Gaia wineries.
The boats leave from the Ribeira dock at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, 3 pm, 4:30 pm. You can do the tour in any one of the Tomaz Do Douro company's boats by presenting your printed voucher.
