Should have stayed in Porto
Orania_C

The best part of this tour was the boat ride in Aveiro. The captain and his mate were very fun and captivating. However the tour guide that drove us from Porto to Avera oh to Aviero and Costa Nova should not be working in this field. She did not provide any history or information at all about the 2 places that we visited. And, she was not very friendly in general towards the group. Additionally we requested an English tour and this tour was in English and French. This actually had very little consequence since the guide did so little talking. I have had much more positive experiences on other tours in the area.

Lovely trip, really enjoyed the boat trip, Isabelle was a lovely guide. We went in the morning, which wprked out well as it was starting to get hot by the time we finished the boat trip. It was also nice to be back in Porto for 1pm to carry on the rest of our day

Boring tour

If you are looking for a tour that allows you to take Instagram photos, this is it. It’s really just one hour bus ride each way, you get off to take photos and back to Porto. Nothing special.

Interesting but not special.

Booked a tour for English guide. My wife and I were the only English speakers of 8 people. Guide spent most of her time speaking to other tour members. Aveiros was interesting but not as impressive as many other sites in Portugal. Very little time to walk around and see them town. The canal boat trip was enjoyable but it is "artificial" and now maintained for tourists. The trip to Costa Nova was very quick and there was less than 30 min to visit the site. Enough time to see the beach and return to the van. Would recommend spending more time in Porto or other city.

I may not have read the full account for this trip, but it was in essence a driver who took us to Averio and Porto Nova - he got us there safely and on time. If that was his only job - he did a great job. If on the other hand he was supposed to give us some interesting tid bits.... well - not so much. His presentation was flat and uninteresting.

Really nice places to visit but it’s a quick visit
Jasmine_A

Really nice places and absolutely worth the time. My only complaint would be there wasn’t enough time. Would love to see a full day option with this itinerary where we could see the salt flats, spend more time in aveiro(30 minutes is not enough at all) and Costa nova (again 30 minutes not nearly enough). The places were really lovely and the boat tour was also great. I would go back for sure.
