River cruises on the Douro river in Portugal - Douro Cruises 2013

Take a Douro cruise from Oporto (Porto), Regua, Pinhao and Barca d'Alva past the Port Wine quintas for the highlight of your time in Portugal.
The Douro river rises in Spain where it is known as the Duero. As it becomes wider, it forms the border with Spain before turning west across the width of Portugal. It is navigable from the Spanish border for the complete crossing of Portugal until it reaches the sea at Porto (Oporto) on the west coast.
During its journey, the river passes the Port Wine quintas in a region of steeply terraced hills and mountains. In recent years, the river has been tamed by a series of dams and locks and no longer has the dangers of the rapids faced by men of former years.

The Douro cruise my wife and I made was a superb experience from A tko Z and will highly recommend our experience to our family and friends. Thank you and your company for having provided us with such a unique experience.

Trip was very easy to book via web site. The trip was excellent great views from the river, through Porto, then the locks and vine yards, villages beautiful. The staff were great, good fun. The food just super, 5 star meals and wine. Trip back on the train good but we needed the rest after food and wine. The only issue was, a very late start, booked to leave at 8.15 so we were there at the port at 8.00, but we did not leave until 9.00. 45 minutes just sitting and wondering what was happening.
