Douro, Porto and Salamanca River Cruise with Lisbon Extension Cruise Review

“I can’t put into words how brilliant this cruise was! I’ve been travelling for the last twenty years or so and I’ve never had so much to say about a trip before now. The tours were fantastic and very fun, the food I got to try was delicious and the places I visited were like what you’d see in a brochure, they were tremendous. Loved every minute of this cruise.”
