If you don't have a lot of time in Porto, I totally recommend you to go to the cruise since you have a chance to see many of the city in a short amount of time. On the day we went there, it was a bit windy so we could only watch from the lower deck but it was still... More

Very well done. We stayed at a 5*hotel for 2 days in Lisbon. Breakfast buffet was included. Boarded and debarked boat in Porto. We were assigned to a Viking owned tour bus and were on the same bus with the same guide for the entire trip. Local guides used in towns. Wonderful exercusions with delicious lunches. Visited many winery and... More

This was part of a ticket with the red bus tour. We went early in the morning 10.00 am and the queues were minimal so we were able to get a seat in the front which was great for taking photographs. The commentary was very informative. We went under all six bridges and out to the mouth of the river... More

My wife and I were in Porto last September. Of all the things we did, the river cruise was the most enjoyable. The cruise takes you up the Douro river valley which has spectacular scenery. Take the full day cruise. The half day cruise does not go far enough up the river to see the most outstanding scenery on the... More

We arrived for a Christmas cruise with very few festivities. A lunch of fish pie or chicken and fruit salad and cheap wine. We had great expectations for dinner on the ship. Dinner was not the extravagant fare we hoped for. There are about 100 people on board and choice is very limited, we all dine at the same time.... More

We crossed the St Louis bridge to the "quieter" side and enjoyed a very pleasant, relaxing 50 minute boat tour of the 6 bridges and for less (Euro 10) than the other boat trips on the busier side (Ribeira), where all the cafes and restaurants are (Euro 12.50). It was helped that there were only 4 of us on the... More

Forget a week long river cruise, paying through the nose on an operator like Viking! We booked a two day "Douro Total" cruise directly with Barcadouro.pt for just €250 per person, all in. It was brilliant. The deal included two full days of cruising up the Douro as far as the Spanish border, the overnight **** hotel just outside Regua,... More

It's a lovely late afternoon cruise. We took a 2 hr ride down the calm Douro Valley. I do get seasick but this river is so calm and you will hardly know you are on water. We took our cruise by Douro Vintage Hotel. Our boat is named "Family 1 - Pipa Douro" Our ride up the river started at... More

Cruised on the river Douro and admired the beautiful city of Porto on one side and the port cellars on the other. The cruise takes you far enough to see the 6 bridges that span the river. Very nice
