Activity carried out in September so the ideal temperature! A full day on the Douro in the sun with cheap bar service (beer = 1.50 euro!). We had audio explanations on the important elements of the landscape. Both meals are served directly at our table which has been reserved for us. The breakfast is very light, but good! The dinner was excellent (3 courses) and wine included. We loved the service (welcoming and friendly staff) and the activity to see the Douro at its full potential! I recommend!!!

The food was wonderful but I was not given an opportunity to list food restrictions; pork was served and I don’t eat pork so I mainly ate vegetables which were delicious. There is not enough seating on the deck so prepare to stand the entire cruise. The seating at meals is tight and if all the chairs were full there would not be enough room. It appears as though they have over estimated the capacity. Additionally the women's bathroom ran out of toilet paper so bring tissues.

Beautiful moment on the Douro. Cruise that allows you to have a glimpse of the landscapes along the river. The passage of 2 locks is an interesting moment. Only downside at the level of the boat, on the upper deck with enough seating space in relation to the number of passengers and no protection against the sun. The guide was a bit overwhelmed...
