Onda Colossal proposes like other operators tours in gondolas around Aveiro. Although not exceptional, it is however interesting to do it. It gives you a different eye, which is complementary to what you can see by walk. The tour has a duration of 45 minutes.

We started our daytrip in Aveiro with a boattrip, which immediately gave us a good overview of the city. The old part of the city with the salt warehouses and the new part of the city with the very nice and modern buildings.
