“River trip”
Review of Rio Douro

Reviewed 15 March 2013

We bought a Yellow bus ticket and had a free boat ride and it was great. The ride lasted about 40 mins and we went through most of the bridges. You get a good view of the port houses so you can plan which one to first.

After a long and tiring walk in the city, to sit and have a beer at the sunset is relaxing.. There are many restaurants and cafes along the river you can rest. After all, i recommend you to take the funicular near and walk above the brigde, enjoy the city lights.

It is a lovely river to stroll along and cross using the pedestrian bridge but there are many beggars who won't hesitate to follow you and ask angrily 'don't you understand hungry!?'.

It depends on your philosophy of whether to give to beggars or not but the tactics are particularly aggressive I think, compared to others around the world.

The UNESCO site is stunning. The visit we made to a port lodge was OK, but it's far nicer just to sit outside Sandemans and enjoy a glass or two of vinho verde with a Prego no Pao (steak sandwich).

If the weather is good, it will be worth to go on the cruise! the views are worth to appreciate. There are many choices of cruises with many prices, but the bigger cruises might be the better ones
