This was a lovely trip. Pedro was so knowledgable and interesting, and went out of his way to make the day a great experience for all of us. It was lovely to see a truly different area.

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.
The town of Aveiro was like taking a step back in time. It was very relaxing as we walked through the town. We also saw men fishing near the shore. This trip also included a cruise through the many canals.
This was a great complement to the other tours we took from Porto it helped us get a broader view of the diversity of northern Portugal.
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!
Great trip. Loved the fisherman's village, now a vacation destination
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.
Great trip, excellent guide. Despite the inclement weather we enjoyed visiting this lovely town
Well organised, pleasant staff Pascal the tour guide and the staff on the boat trip in Aveiro. Pascal created a good atmosphere.

This was a very enjoyable day despite the rainy weather. Glad we went there and saw it. Pleasant little town.
This tour allowed us to see a bit more of Portugal in addition to Porto. The guide was friendly and knowledgable and the small towns interesting. Definitely worth it.
The boat tour was interesting but the rest of the tour was unremarkable. Our guide picked us up 45 minutes late without an apology. Consequently, by the time we got to our last destination all the stores were closed and we got back to Porto later than anticipated and almost missed our dinner reservations.
