Douro River, in Northern Portugal is more than a blessing. I've crossed the region by car and got amazed by the beauty of the valley, of the vineyards and of its blue waters flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. A land of great wines including, of course, the worldwide famous Port Wine, as well as red and white wines of excellent quality. Along the River, restaurants and "quintas" offer Portuguese cuisine at its highest standard. If you haven't seen de Douro River and Valley, you do have good reasons to come back to Portugal. Enjoy!

The tour for the Douro river was excellent the views are incredible, those two bridges designed by Eiffel are beautiful, the restaurants by the river are full of life and the city is very nice.

Took a tour with Viator up the Douro, saw all the sights and had a tour of one of the Port/Winnery houses. Views are fabulous and our guide was really experienced and made sure taht we saw everything.

Great river that runs right down the middle of Porto, Portugal. There are lots of resturants and bars to stop and have fun. Also many places to see.

All the boat rides cost the same and go the same route. Many offer a combination with a wine cellar, bus tour, etc. Our boat ride have NO commentary whatsoever. Didn´t say a thing the entire ride. Ride was very nice, interesting sights, but would have been so much better to have known more of what we were seeing.
