No words.
I made this cruise with great expectations and they were exceeded for me. I had some fears because these boat services are usually mediocre and a little monotonous but this is not the case. The price is fair for the quality of the vacation we had. I'd pay again to do it all over again. Breakfast, lunch and dinner with excellent quality, all the staff was incredible. Thank you. Hug to the whole crew, Robin.

Lovely Cruise in Douro
Me and my wife celebrated our 50 anniversary on this douro cruise. It was one of the best weeks of our lives. the panoramic views surrounding the river, the simpathy of the crew, always ready for us, the enviroment abord was peaceful but with some activities off ship also. a dream trip for us celebrating our lifes.
