A Douro River Cruise takes you on a journey across Portugal from the Atlantic Ocean to the border with Spain. You dock right in the middle of each destination and walk off the ship to the center of town.
As the Douro is the epicenter of the unique winemaking culture of Portugal, many of your stops along the river will incorporate trips to the region’s vineyards. You will also be able to experience history as you wander the towns and cities on this river in guided tours or at your leisure.
In order to navigate these waters, the ships need to be small in size: they hold between 75-125 passengers. So every aspect of your experience -the service, the dining, the tours – is personal. No waiting for the buffet, no lining up for excursions.
Finally, river cruises are all-inclusive. This means that almost every part of your cruise, from your food and drink to your excursions and other activities, is included in the price, leaving you free to relax and enjoy your vacation.
