It was one of the most beautiful Events in a long time. Great view on Porto and a really relaxed time on the boat. Paulo was a fantastic Captain he told us a lot about Porto and offered best Portwine, Secco and a great Snack. We had a lot fun with him. Anytime to repeat!

Paulo and Daniel are excellent guides and the boat is very well kept. A drink and snack were offered once the boat reached the center of Porto which was a very nice touch. Nice and clean boat. Would definitely recommend!
