About Portugal Tours

A Portugal River Cruise offers an extraordinary experience for passengers of all ages!  A major river of the Iberian Peninsula, the Douro River flows through Portugal and Spain to the Atlantic Ocean.  The river has formed the Douro River Valley which has become a passageway to the fascinating wine region of Porto.

Porto (also Oporto), known for its famous bridges, Port wine houses, and baroque churches, is Portugal’s second largest city after Lisbon.  The old town that was built upon the hills overlooks the Douro River, and the modern metropolis has a blooming nightlife and creative scene. Lisbon, a city also spread across the mountaintop, features a variety of monasteries and old architecture. Favourite Lisbon spots can be found in the quaint alleyways with outdoor patios, restaurants, and bars.  

Aside from these two lovely cities, you may visit the botanical gardens and serene beaches of the fairy-tale setting of Sintra.  Sintra was once home to the Portuguese royal family and was the inspiration for Byron and other poets.  You may also visit the Douro Museum, pilgrimage sites, and the palace that was home to the Count of Vila Real in Régua, and enjoy a picnic at Quinta Avessada, an interactive museum of the wine-making process in Pinhão.  Some Portugal River Cruise itineraries allow you to venture out of Portugal to spend a day in Spain’s capital Madrid, for guided tours of art museums and cathedrals. 

Board a Portugal River Cruise and discover the jewels of this beautiful country. View the quaint villages high in the mountains as you leisurely sail by and feast on authentic Portuguese delicacies while sipping on wine from one of the village’s local vineyards.
