“I recently went on the amazing Porto & The Douro Valley cruise and I can’t help but share the incredible experiences I had. The excursions were wonderful and the night tour of Porto on the first day made a brilliant first impression. The city’s landmarks were beautifully lit and made the atmosphere feel magical. Our guided tour of Lamego was equally enchanting, with its rich traditions and the breathtaking Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios. The Douro Museum provided valuable insights into the region’s wine history and our visit to Quinta do Tedo allowed us to witness the winemaking process against a backdrop of stunning valley views. This cruise is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience of culture, history, and the finest delicacies the Douro Valley has to offer, making it an unforgettable journey for any traveller, myself included.”
