The experience and the food was amazing. The cruise itself was in a very good condition and the ability to have the view of the landscape was lovely! Only unfortunate thing was that it was not possible to go in the front of the boat to have a full view of the Douro River.

Fulfilled All Expectations

This was a very very good tour. The trip up by train and cruise back to Porto suited us perfectly. The lunch was very good also and extremely filling and of good quality. I could not fault our trip. The weather was perfect. Sure, our train broke down and delayed our arrival in Régua by close to an hour but this did not in any way detract from our experience and the team handled the situation very professionally. Highly recommend!
