Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a great time. After leaving our stuff in the Office and good instructions we were ready to sup. In the beginning it is a little bit hard but after a while we got used to it also our nine year old sun. The view of the river is nice. At the end pictures were taken and we received them by mail. It was worth the money.

    NIce relaxing boat tour up the river was a nice way to see the city from the water. Drifted lazily down the waterway was a nice way to enjoy an afternoon.

    The reason we chose this company over the other was their free transfer policy. We didn’t have a car, so we really appreciated their offer. We also got free coffee and in our case a bag of food.

    Awesome experience and a clear recommendation!

    Fantastic canyoning experience. The two guides went out of their way to make our halfday trip very enjoyable ( and safe of course). The equipment was new and complete their knowledge is outstanding. WE highly recommend them.

    Serranas do Mondego

    As a family from England, we boarded the Barca Serrana at Parque Dr. Manuel Braga and enjoyed a scenic trip with our skipper and guide Miguel. The journey was peppered with fascinating stories about the commercial activities of the Mondego basin, and Miguel pointed out the architectural landmarks of the Old Town and the University. He was incredibly enthusiastic and put his heart and soul into his work.

    It was fascinating to learn about the importance of these boats for centuries and to see them re-equipped with electric motors and returned to the river for cultural purposes.

    I can fully recommend this boat trip, whether you want to hear about history and architecture or just enjoy the boat ride! So much nicer than the alternative large commercial boat trips that you can join from the same place.

    This is a really excellent activity to do whilst in Coimbra, Portugal, as you get to fully experience the beautiful River Mondego.
    Gustavo, the tour leader, gets everyone standing up and paddling within the first five minutes of being on the water, beginners included. He provides support and advice where needed (in English as well as Portuguese) but mainly you are able to move at your own pace so you can take in the amazing views and wildlife.
    I did this tour three times in August because I enjoyed it so much and each time the river had a different feel and atmosphere. You also meet some really nice people.
    The tour lasts for about two hours, with a short break for a drink and a snack, and finishes at a river beachside restaurant where you can swim and celebrate your achievements in a relaxing environment.
