Paulo is an excellent captain & host! It was a beautiful way to see Porto from the river sipping sparkling wine, great Port wine and delicious almonds. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Highly recommend taking this tour!

Our friends gifted us a boat tour in Porto for my husband’s birthday. And I must say it was the best experience that we’ve had in Porto. Paulo took great care of us. He made sure that we were very comfortable. He even found the right moment for my husband to cut the cake which by the way was made by Paulo’s wife. The cake was absolutely delicious. Everything was just perfect and beautiful views of the city. Thank you very much once again. Paulo made us try a port wine which was the best port wine we’ve tasted till date. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you so much for giving us this experience. Highly recommend taking a boat tour with him, it is a beautiful experience. Thank you very much.

What a magical few hours we got to spend on this boat. We saw so many boats that had people crammed on to it in groups of 100+ people. We felt so bad for them as we kicked our feet out and got front seat views in this tour. The driver was INCREDIBLE and made it a first class experience. We got sparkling wine that he refilled constantly, some delicious chili almonds and he stopped to take our picture at the most scenic of places. He also played some traditional portugese music that made the ride so relaxing. We went during the day and was amazed at the experience we got for the cost. He also does sunset boat tours and would highly recommend going with him. The boat is a perfect size for 2-4 people and the attention you get is well worth it. Would highly recommend and wish we could have went out again on our trip.

My 5 and 8 years old kids were happy and enjoying all the time. Paulo knows the Douro and the Atlantic very well, making us feel safe all the time. Paulo is a great host. He offered us cava, nuts, cookies and popcorn for the kids. Thank you Paulo!

This was a lovely relaxing day out on Paulo’s boat seeing the sights of Porto all the way out to sea. Paulo was lovely and communication before the trip was excellent as well as the service on the boat providing us with sparkling wine and snacks. Was able to get off at a different stop to where we boarded which was very convenient for us and overall a super day out!

Perfekte Bootstour

Die private Tour mit Paulo war wunderbar! Wir waren vier Personen und ein kleines Kind mit knapp 2 Jahren. Der Treffpunkt ist leicht zu erreichen. 10min mit dem Taxi vom Stadtzentrum. Hier gibt es einen kleinen Marina mit Restaurant und Café. Da wir ein bisschen zu früh waren, haben wir hier in Ruhe etwas getrunken. Paulo war pünktlich auf die Sekunde. Er warein unglaublich sympathisch, lustig und der perfekte Stadtführer. Es gab Sekt, Wasser und Nüsse. Das Boot war neu und wir hatten jeder Menge Platz. Paulo erzählte uns, dass es sich um ein klassisches Fischerboot handelte. Wir sind ruhig flussabwärts gefahren und Paulo konnte uns zu jeder Brücke, zu jedem Gebäude etwas erzählen. Wir sind sogar bis auf das Meer hinausgefahren. Die Wellen waren hier höher, und man bekam schon einen Eindruck vom Dasein als Fischer. Auf dem Weg zurück, wir waren schon im Zentrum, stellten wir fest, dass wir doch recht großen Hunger hatten. Woraufhin uns Paulo ein Fischrestaurant auf der Gaiaseite empfohlen hat, welches fast an der Mündung war. Daraufhin hat er uns mit Vollgas mit dem Boot wieder in Richtung Mündung gefahren. Was wiederum ein unglaubliches Erlebnis war. Wir sind Paulo sehr sehr dankbar! Am Ende meinten Bruder und Schwägerin, die das erste Mal in Porto waren, dass diese zwei Stunden das Beste der 5 Tage in Porto waren! Also absolut empfehlenswert!!! Vergesst die anderen Touren, die vielleicht den ein oder anderen Euro billiger wären. 25 Euro pro Person für eine private Bootstour ist absolut fair. Das Erlebnis auf jeden Fall wert. Und Paulo ein super Bootsmann!

Vielen Dank, Matt! Ich bin sprachlos mit dieser Überprüfung unserer Erfahrung! Ihre Familie war sehr nett zu mir und es hat geholfen, diese Tour zu etwas Besonderem zu machen. Ich bin wirklich froh, dass Sie unser traditionelles Essen probiert und es gemocht haben! Ich hoffe, Sie und Ihre Familie bald wiederzusehen! Ihr Bootsmann, Paulo
Ganz toll / Muy buena experiencia / great experience

Paulo war sehr flexibel, man konnte den Zeitpunkt ändern, bis das Wetter geeignet war. Die Tour war unbeschreiblich schön und wer einen Bootsführerschein hat, darf selbst das neue Boot steuern. Paulo war sehr sympathisch, lustig, konnte gut mit unseren Kindern umgehen und hat viele Hinweise für weitere Aktionen in Porto gegeben. Er wies darauf hin, dass in der Hafeneinfahrt von Porto manchmal Delphine zu sehen sind und schon tauchte ein Delphin auf! Einfach bezaubernd!!!
