Description

The full-day trip begins with the departure from the emblematic São Bento Railway Station towards Régua. A train journey starts now, but this is not a typical one, the richness and the diversity of this journey will impress you. As soon as you start to appreciate the region views, the enthusiasm for the cruise begins to appear!

When you arrive at Régua, after you and leave the train composition, you will find Régua’s typical sweets sold by the ladies who produce them. Enjoy some free time on this Portugal’s interior city before you get on board.

Finally, your next stop is in the Quay of Regua, a keyword to embark on the Douro’s cruise!

Enjoy the serenity, the environment’s harmony and the excellence of the views on this panoramic Douro’s cruise. Get lost in these beautiful valleys, green areas, and extensive vineyards but, with all these temptations, do not forget the tasteful lunch included served on board.

On the evening, the first locking process is at Carrapatelo’s dam, for those who have never experienced is certainly an exciting time and two hours later, a new dam is about to be crossed, the Crestuma’s dam, another engineering prodigy.

The dream cruise continues to Porto so take advantage of the tranquility of the river and relax.

a great day on the boat
It was a great experience and a right choice to take the trip. I have not booked anything in advance and was looking for a boat trip down Douro river last minute, indeed everything was sold out. I have contacted the customer support of living tours hoping that maybe someone has canceled their cancellation. Whether it was the case or not, within minutes I was offered a place for the next day. The trip was nicely organized, the food was simple but tasty, also more than enough. The boat was comfortable, not too crowded. The personal was friendly and polite. If you are hesitating, I definitely recommend taking the trip.

I just needed to thank your company for our wonderful tour
Both transfer drivers were on time and a pleasure to talk to. The young lady at the rail station was pleasant and efficient. She made sure we were on the train and told us when the station to get off was coming up. She told us what table we were seated at. The card with my name printed on it was a lovely touch. The service and meal on the boat were wonderful. The views from the boat were amazing. The locks were a highlight I can not thank your company and staffed enough. I would not hesitate to recommend your company

Thank you for an excellent trip
I wanted to thank you for the excellent trip we had on the Infanta from Regua to Oporto on Monday 17th September. I have made the trip before, but this was the first time for my friends, and it showed them the full beauty of the Douro valley. The hospitality and helpfulness f the crew was outstanding, and I was particularly grateful for the unfailing forbearance of Raphael!
