We can also guarantee the highest standard of safety and hygiene on board.

Douro River Cruise

This boat tour is a small open air shared experience with starting point in Pinhão, and is subject to ideal weather conditions and daylight constraints in winter time. In case of cancellation, it will be exchanged for another sightseeing activity, like a visit to a local village or a famous Douro viewpoint.

Alternative Pickup Point

If the hotel or accommodation address falls outside the main Porto area or the Douro wine region - around Régua and Pinhão - we may need to charge an extra fee, depending on the exact location.
