Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Porto for the day and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Douro Valley as you cruise along the Douro River to a series of high dams. Marvel at views of the Douro Valley and Alijó in the Norte Region of Portugal. Sit down to a delicious breakfast and lunch. Board the boat at Cais da Estiva in the Ribeira of Porto. Then, travel into the Douro Valley passing the vineyards of one of Europe’s earliest demarcated wine regions. Continue past Quintas to the Crestuma-Lever Dam in time for lunch. Sail further along the Douro River to the high Carrapatelo Dam. Cross the “capital of wine” at Régua, and pause by the Barragem Dam at Bagaúste. At approximately 5:00 PM, the boat will arrive at Pinhão, where you will have a visit to a wine estate with tastings of different samples of wine. Return to Porto by bus for an estimated arrival time of 9:00 PM.

A busy day between breakfast (of much better quality than that of the 4 * hotel where we were), the passage of all the dams, the midday meal, and the tasting visit of the port house, we Didn't see the time pass Just one downside: the lack of outdoor seating on the Boat requiring either standing or being inside while the sun was shining

Très bien

La croisière s'est bien passé a part un petit détail. On a fait une réservation séparé avec des amis. En donnant les billets on nous dit qu'on sera séparé qu'il fallait appelé pour être sur la même table on nous remballe... :-\ Au final on a réussi a être a la même table mais on s'est quand même pris la tête avec l'accueillant...
