This is charming excursion if you are visiting northern Portugal. It's a small city with a delightful energy. Although I would not compare the canal ride to Venice, our guide was a quirky young man who was fluent in many languages and very willing to charm the boat riders with tales of his town. A worthwhile way to spend an afternoon.
We had a fabulous day out with a wonderful guide Maria!
The towns of Aveiro and Ilhavo were very special and so good to explore!
Maria had just the two of us for the day and she really gave us great history and was so friendly and informative,she made the day even better!!
I would really recommend this trip and if you get Maria for a guide,you are lucky!!

Adorei! A guia extremamente simpática, atenciosa e preocupada com nosso bem estar. Um bom passeio para conhecer as proximidades de Porto sem nenhum estresse.
Pedro was an awesome guide! He went above and beyond. Gave us local restaurant recommendations at the end of the tour. Thank you for a wonderful tour of Aveiro and Coimbra.
I was the only one on the tour, but they did not cancel it.

The tour guide was great..
I higly recommend it!

Aveiro is a very pretty town and we were blessed with sunny weather which I think is essential to a visit to Aveiro. The boat trip was fun and it was interesting to see the striped cottages on the Coasta Nova.
An excellent tour, there were just the 2 of us and our guide, Sophia, who was great fun and very informative. A lovely trip outside of Porto.
Very pleased with this tour. Tour guide knew his material, answered all our questions, and made the trip stress free. We learned about the foods, the people, and the spirit of Lisbon Yes, and the places we went to see. The difference is in such a short period he brought his city to life and gave us the best of it. Have traveled a great deal would recommend this guide doing this tour.
it was relaxing and informative, We saw a lot with the stress of waking up at six or sept oclock,
Really thought this would give us a different view of Portugal and it certainly did. we had been on a river cruise on the Douro plus visiting historic sites like Obidos, Sintra and Guimares but we had no visual of the coastal living that existed. We had not been to the Algarve. Our host/driver Joao Brandao was great. He had to alternate between Spanish, French and English for the 4 couples and it was a wonder he did it so well. We enjoyed Aveiro and stopping at the beach in Costa Nova and having a café and nata on the promenade along the inlet. Highly recommend - and ask for Joao!
I loved this tour! This beautiful and charming place is just about an hour from Porto! You'll start the day at Costa Nova with charming houses that are painted with colorful stripes like candy canes. You'll have about half an hour to explore and then head off to Aveiro. It's so pretty! The ride on the canal on the moliceiro is awesome! Plus, there's lots to do here in this little town. The only suggestion I have is that this should be a full day tour because there's too much to do in Aveiro for just 2 hours. Next time I visit this town, I'll go on my own on the train to have more free time. But, for a first time experience, I loved the tour. Our guide was very nice and dropped us off on the other side of the river, in Gaia, overlooking the river. We spent the rest of the day exploring the neighborhhod. I was hesitant to try this tour because it had no reviews. I went for it and loved it! If the tour company is reading this review, please think about making the tour a little longer..More time in Aveiro would have made this tour perfect!
One of my favourite tours in Porto! Aveiro is such a cute town. We did a short walk with the guide, had free time and then got on a Moliceiro boat for a short cruise, which was very enjoyable. On the way to Aveiro we visited other small village which was very colourful and very different to any other towns we had visited. The tour guide was excellent; she was fun and very knowledgeable; we learn so much about Portugal! It was one of the highlights of our trip, and I recommend spending an extra half day in Porto to visit Aveiro.
Our tour director was very good. The tour is nice in that it is a small group as advertised. The day we went there were only 3 of us. It was poring rain the day we went so we were not able to enjoy the city to the fullest and opted not to take the boat ride. However it was nonetheless a very enjoyable tour and our guide did everything in his power to make it a good tour.
