Exceeded Expectations!
, Oct 2019
An amazing value for money trip. The train journey to Regua was a pretty ride and took two hours and I would advise travellers to take a drink with them as there is nowhere to buy one. The boat trip was fantastic and the staff were extremely good we were served canapes and port on deck followed a while later by a lovely delicious three course cooked lunch. The journey down river to Porto was very scenic and interesting accompanied by a multi language commentary - definitely a must do in my opinion!
A lovely day long getaway

I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion... a two hour train ride from gorgeous São Bento station in Porto to Régua and a leisurely boat ride back on the Douro River. Started out cloudy but ended up being a gorgeous day. Met lots of lovely people... ended up speaking more French than Portuguese (or English, my mother tongue). A generous and hearty lunch with wine, dessert and coffee was included as was a toast with Port wine to start our journey.
Rainy day but great trip.

What a great experience. Friendly staff, well organized. Food was amazingly good for this kind of venue. Scenery was breath taking. And the trip through the deep lock was great. We thoughly enjoyed it.

The trip was beautiful, despite being cloudy and cool. My meal was wonderful and traveling companions on the cruise were friendly. My only criticism is there was almost no commentary on what we were seeing, so I was disappointed not to learn about the history of the region. All in all, it was worthwhile.
Trip Was Great But You Can Do It By Yourself

The train & boat trip were great however you can do it all by yourself. The girl merely gave us tickets for the train when in fact she had time to tell us all about the beautiful train station. Then she merely told us where to sit for the great lunch. You can do this all without her help for sure. The meal was three courses with wine. The sights are wonderful.

Excellent tour and well organized. It was just what we wanted to do. I didn't want to drive or stay overnight. This was perfect and we met interesting people on the boat.
Good relaxing time on the boat but not the train.

Good tour to enjoy the river.It was hard to understand the tour guide and all guides speak more than one language, so they will repeat the same thing 3 times which is not good for us because there are a lot to see and we missed a lot of things because they say it 3 times and not enough time to explain everything you see.Most of tours in Portugal like that.
I was confused about how best to see...

I was confused about how best to see the Duoro, but decided on this trip because of the reviews and ratings. I was largely disappointed by the tour, although I suppose it is as described. We met at the train station at 8am, took the train from 8:25am to 10:15am, walked directly from the train to the boat 10 mins, and then was on the boat from 10:45am to 5:15pm. The views are nice for sure. However, it gets old very fast. 2 hours on a train and 6.5 hours on a boat was just too much. I was there with my toddler, husband and my parents. Maybe this would have been better for older people. The food was fine potato soup, pork and potatoes and cheesecake still slightly frozen. At the end, I saw a waiter carrying stacks of clean plates by balancing on his chin. That was after I ate, so didnt matter much to me. Still gross. The bathrooms were clean. The boat is nice. The entire first floor is set up with the tables and chairs but you can stand upstairs although there is no shade or enclosures upstairs. I found this wasnt worth devoting a whole day and it wasnt worth the 100. I would recommend finding a different way to see the Duoro.
Day trip with train and lunch on boat.

Relaxing tour with train and lunch on boat. Three course lunch with ample of wine. Food was very good. Relaxing six hour cruise on the Douro back to Porto. Two very interesting locks to pass!
Best Part of our Porto Stay

We made the reservations through Viator. A company called Barcadouro called the day before to confirm where and what time we should meet. The tour begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Sao Bento Train Station. The train ride to Ragua was scenic and interesting. We were given an hour to walk around, get something to eat, and then we boarded the boat ride back to Porto which was a leisurely 6 hour cruise downstream. The ride on the barge included a nice, leisurely lunch with a bottle of wine per couple. You can ask for beer if not a wine drinker. The photo ops and vistas off the barge were the best.
