Then, travel into the Douro Valley passing the vineyards of one of Europe’s earliest demarcated wine regions. Continue past Quintas to the Crestuma-Lever Dam in time for lunch.

Fantastic scenery, well organized, very nice staff, going through the locks is a cool experience. Breakfast and lunch timing was good. Food is pretty basic and it was quite crowded when on deck in the fresh air. It was long, so we actually abandoned at the 330 port of call, forgoing the vineyard tour and tasting because we would have gotten back to Porto very late, without dinner. Apparently you can book just to the first Port of call and not all the way to pinhau, we did wish we had known that. But even with that, it was a great day out.

It is a fantastic day trip - perfectly organised, seeing a large part of the Douro valley in one day. On a very comfortable ship, with excellent care, breakfast and lunch. Small minus, it was very hot and the air conditioning was broken. And then a port tasting after the cruise. And by bus back to Porto. All super organized.

A really nice tour of the Douro river and through 3 large locks, with a view to the green mountains, and later to lots of vineyards, and finally a visit to a vineyard in Pinhão with a port wine cocktail and then a really nice bus trip back to Porto.
