What people are saying about Pinhão

The crew/service were friendly and very helpful. Please note that if your trip is facilitated by Barcadouro ( board in Gaia) then there is a boat change at Peso da Regua, no free time in Pinhao but a visit to a local Winery. Also the return is by bus which was quick and comfortable.

This trip was worth it!

We were impressed with the food, the wait staff, and overall experience. Would definitely recommend this to friends and families. We wished that the boat's sound system worked better - it was hard to hear the speakers due to where we sat.

Pleasant experience by mini-bus (8 people). Attentive guide with all French and English speaking travelers.

Excellent guide Sergio. Beautiful ride! Recommendable! We had a beautiful day! Thanks

Beautiful day cruise, good food and great service. But it is a long day excursion.
