My husband and I really enjoyed the day which started with a coach journey of 1& 1/2 hours from Sao Bento station to Regua where we boarded our boat to sail down to Porto...a leisurely 8 hours with a delicious lunch with Douro wine served in the restaurant below. The most amazing scenery and going through the two Dams (first 38 meter drop and the second 14 meter drop) was such a wonderful experience. Sadly the weather in Porto when we got back was dreadful only day of rain in our 14 day stay. Highly recommend this trip which made us want to do a longer 3 day trip in the future.

I really enjoyed the tour of the Douro, simply wonderful, the lunch on board the ship was also excellent. I recommend it to everyone who has the opportunity to do so.

Brilliant day!! Started with great coach ride! Excellent and comfortable cruise with a pleasant 3 course meal. Great value for money!!!

Well organised trip overall. The river cruise was fantastic - some key points were amazing but won’t spoil the surprise.

Perfect day, super organization well eaten and excellent day
