River cruises on the Douro river in Portugal - Douro Cruises 2014

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.

Hello, We found the booking process easy and the response time was very good, also for our extra questions. The website was easy to navigate. We did the booking for friends only, as we could not go aboard with our dog. They, however, said that the cruise was good, on time and very well organised. They only slight issue was that the commentary was a bit too focused on technical details. Also, it would be good with a map to describe exactly where you find the right boat on the quay. But all in all, a very good experience.

Beautiful landscaping cruise, one off the best in the world , nice breakfast and lunch. Reasonable prices for drinks on board. Guide was very helpful on our way back to Porto with the train. Not able to pay with credit card for the cruise is very old-fashioned. There was not enough space and chairs on deck, for the guest to enjoy the outside in the sun. Music was much to loud and from a terrible quality, a lot of people on board were irritated about that. Anyway, I will do it for the third time if possible !
