Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the views were terrific and going through the 3 locks was more impressive than I expected. Meals were generally good and the overall service was excellent.

We had an enjoyable day on the boat, the meals were organised with military precision. The scenery was beautiful especially on the upper river towards Pinhao. That was very relaxing, our guide Sergio organised the transfer to the train at Pinhao but I wish he'd said that we would have to change trains at Campanha to arrive in Sao Bento, we realised what was happening so ended up at the right station in Porto

The sights along the Douro River are absolutely beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed cruise.

We did wonder, however, why we were seated with German people that did not speak English in spite of the fact that there were MANY English speaking people onboard,
The afternoon was VERY hot and the train ride back was late and LONG!

Good trip, but a long day! Breakfast was poor, but lunch was good. Boat was full and dining experience not very pleasant as area was crowded. However, the trip itself was very pleasant and scenery worth seeing. Would do it again, but may look for a shorter trip.

Great scenery but the trip was extremely long and not well though of. If traveling during the summer months it is impossible to survive on the deck past noon. Let alone that there are never enough seats to accommodate all passengers on the deck. The interior of the boat is a huge dinning room, where the meals are served these are good, but not very comfortable for the 8 hour long ride. Pinhão has nothing to see and the train ride back to Porto is exhausting. The train is old, never on time and very few cars have ac. The train stops at 9 pm at a different station than the one mentioned. The guides did not seem very interested in what they were showing us and once you get on the train you are by yourself to figure out the rest of the trip.

Trip was very long with no outdoor covering on boat. No seats set up in shade. Feel barcaduoro boat should have awning covering at least half of boat as the whole reason for trip is for scenery. We were sitting on floor on side of boat to try and get shade. Not that comfortable


3 star rating: Worth doing June 2016

The trip was definitely a full day and we suggest that you get breakfast before boarding as their breakfast consisted of two bread rolls, butter and jam! However lunch was fantastic. Due to our late return from Pinhao we were hanging out for a meal and had difficulty finding somewhere to eat after 10pm. The trip itself was good, the scenery great but nothing out of the ordinary and we navigated through 3 very large locks which was exciting in itself. However there was a distinct lack of commentary and the boats air-conditioning broke down.
