River cruises on the Douro river in Portugal - Douro Cruises 2015

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.

We enjoyed the cruise, the food and wine ;-) the travel by train wasn't that spectacular as by the boat.

I am a travel agent in Canada a little familiar in the Duoro River area.( I travelled there before ) I have high praise for the 2 day trip I took via boat one way and return via rail . The hotel was outstanding and so were the meals provided either on ship or at the hotel. I can highly recommend your program, it provides many options to suit clients needs. Thanks again for providing me with my highlight of the entire trip, it started in Toronto , 2 days Bilbao , 2 days Santander , 1 day Santiago , your river cruise for 2 days, on to Germany for a visit to relatives , and ending up in Sweden again with relatives. This was truly an amazing trip. Please pass on my comments with best regards to Tania and her colleuge. ( I may pay you a surprise visit next year)
