If you do not have the time to do the river cruise--which is too bad that you have to miss it--this is a great alternative. We "jumped ship" in Regua to be able to catch, in Lisbon, our cruise back to the states. We were sorry to have to give up the last day, but we knew that

Leisurely day trip out of the city. Our tour met at Sao Bento train station so able to see decorative tile interior without making special trip. Comfortable - uncrowded rural train trip up the valley to Regua .. short walk to the boat and slow smooth cruise back to Porto.

If you want a short excursion, don’t do this. From the start it is stated that you start at 07:30 and finish at 17:30. If you can’t handle this long, take a walk in Porto. Train ride, 2 hrs, very relaxing, nice seats. YOU NEED TO GET THERE. The boat is nice, well maintained
