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.

We had a lovely day and we would highly recommend the cruise - up river and train back. It would be much easier to pay with a credit card online and we would have appreciated being given a more specific embarkation point as the dock isn`t marked or signposted at all so its difficult to know where to say you need to go to a taxi driver and its a big dock.

Our day cruise from Regua to Pinhao and back was most enjoyable with a very excellent lunch and wine and top service. I have already recommended it to several people. I made the reservations from home via internet with very quick responses and no problems. Congratulations on an excellent service and easy procedure - and such a lovey river!!!
