Cruise made on 1.11 with the family. Very pleasant staff. We weren't 'mixed' with other people at our table. Breakfast as soon as we arrive on the boat consisting of coffee or tea or chocolate, a croissant, a roll, a small chocolate cake, butter and jam. One carafe of orange juice per table. More than enough! Until lunch we sailed on the Douro with regular commentaries in several languages, passing through two locks. possible to go upstairs outside where there are chairs. Lunch: vegetable soup, meat in sauce, vegetable, potato and rice, as well as bread. 1 bottle of red wine (we don't drink it so no opinion) 1 carafe of orange juice. Very good meal at a good pace! Arrived in Regua at 3:30 p.m., departure of the train at 5:10 p.m. to arrive at 7:15 p.m. in Porto. Nice vr cruise! Very good value for money. Our 8 year old daughter loved it and so did we. A very good moment !

We booked this day trip based on a recommendation from a friend who had done it a few months before. We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the boat, and the trip back on the train was very convenient. We enjoyed the breakfast and lunch and the food was plentiful. One of the highlights of the trip was going through the 2 lock systems. My husband especially enjoyed this. The value for what we paid for the trip was very good, in fact for the quality of the tour, and our meals, plus the train trip, we were surprised at how inexpensive it was. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you want an option other than the winery tours.

Great experience! The crew was friendly and efficient. The views were fantastic. We will definitely do this trip again.

Plentiful food and opportunity to met so many interesting people.

lovely cruise and straightforward train journey back
