Porto is located on the banks of the Rio Douro and a boat on the river is one of the more pleasant and relaxing things you can do while in Porto.
There are trips lasting from around 30 minutes to trips that last you for several days.
I have taken the 1 hour tour a couple of times that takes you through the most central part of the river banks in Porto and under all the main bridges.
When i have the time for it i would like to cruise further up the river for a few days, but if you have limitied time then the one hour tour is very nice too.
