  • On the shore of Gaia (in front of Porto) we were approached by a guy looking for customers for a short 50-minute boat ride (eur. 14); he told us that during the tour we would have the explanation in Italian and the company would offer a treat in a club in front of us. He took us to their door nearby, where we paid (3 adults). Soon after, we were told that the explanation was not available in the next round. We opted for the ride again after. While we waited we went to get the treat. In the room they stuffed us from one counter to another, until a girl took the vouchers, entered the kitchen and came out after a few minutes with a box. When we opened the box, we found 3 tiny non-whole treats, but TAGLIATI TO METy: in the box there were 3 half sweets. I tried to talk to both the guy and the people in the store to say it's better not to offer anything than to look bad, but suddenly they no longer understood English, and finally stated that it wasn't their problem. We then went on a boat ride; the explanation was there, recorded by native speakers, but it went continuously from the location on the right bank to the location on the left bank without warning; The excursion lasted 40 minutes instead of the 50 planned. I do not recommend this ride especially for the silly and unpleasant management by the staff, perhaps too young for such roles.

  • No audio explanation of 6 bridges. Explanation was that their system was broken. No refund provided. The whole reason I wanted to take the tour was to learn more about the different bridges. Waste of time.
  • We took the 1 hour mini-cruise. This cruise goes a short way down the river, turns around, goes a short way the other way and comes back. There was not very much to see but worse than that it was impossible to follow what the auto narration was talking about. You get a set of headphones and you can listen in many languages. The problem is that there is no person pointing to what the narration is talking about. As a result it was nearly impossible to know what was being described. I would definitely not recommend the short cruise. The longer cruises may be a different story but this one is not worth wasting your money on. On a positive note, the person taking tickets was very friendly and helpful.
