After travelling to Porto’s São Bento Railway Station independently, greet your host and board a train destined for Régua, a sun-bleached town in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Douro Valley.
Just before boarding the train, admire the station’s decorative tiles and learn a little of its history. Then, as the train lurches into motion, appreciate the grace of the Douro Valley’s landscapes: sprawling vineyards, quaint villages, and undulating hills paint a pleasing picture.
Then, after a short walk from Régua train station, you’ll board a boat and embark on a 6-hour cruise down the Douro River. Revitalize with lunch served on board the boat and admire unparalleled views of the surrounding landscapes as you sail at a relaxed pace.
Your boat docks at Estiva Quay, near Ribeira Square, where your tour concludes.
