Update: The B. Wise Douro River Cruise, from June 1 through June 8, 2024 is SOLD OUT.
Rambling vineyards and charming native farms cling to the steep sides of the Douro River Valley, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions and to Port country— the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Sail roundtrip from Porto, the beautiful “City of Bridges”; visit Regua, the ‘capital’ of the Douro Valley; and marvel at Salamanca, the UNESCO-designated “Golden City.” Taste wines from historic wineries and soak up the genuine beauty of one of Europe’s most unadulterated landscapes.
On this river cruise, guests will enjoy an extensive lineup of tours and activities. In many cases, you will have a choice of excursions, such as lunch at a local Portuguese quinta, a visit to the historic Baroque Mateus Palace and gardens, an excursion to Salamanca in Spain, regional cuisine and wine tasting, the Holy Staircase hike in Bôlas, and a “City of Bridges” tour within Porto.
