Porto | Régua | Porto – Downstream by Boat

A land of great beauty and commercial importance in the transport of wine, Peso da Régua is one of the main destinations for Douro cruises. Described by Miguel Torga as “A geological poem. The absolute beauty”, this region of the Douro triggers a mixture of reactions: the tranquility of a serene river that winds through the valley and the emotion of a superb landscape. Embark on the Douro Route in Cruise Régua – Porto and be dazzled by the beauty of this route.

    Absolutely bad reviews, the first time to do such a ship, the money is not worth the money, the company’s people are poorly serviced, the boat is rudimentary, and the empty table is not for the guests. The reason is to use breakfast tomorrow. What is the wonderful reason?

      We are actually on the boat. The organisation is good, at time. The meal is OK too, good quality and good wines too. But, we think it’s absolutely horrific to see members crew throw their cigarettes and package down to the river Douro! It’s a shame!

    We took this tour on October 1, 2019 and were thoroughly pleased. The meeting-up with our tour guide at Sao Bento station was smooth, the train ride pleasant. In Regua, we transferred to the boat. The boat was clean, well maintained, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. My wife and I really enjoyed the meal on board and we were impressed that we received a full bottle of vinho tinto that was actually very good. Elsewhere, I rather don’t like the “free” wine, but here, it was very well selected. We also enjoyed the full meal, although be aware that it is not vegetarian, so not all people may have the same praise. I did not enquire whether there was a vegetarian option, so I will still give full marks for the food as WE liked it. We were on the boat for more than six hours, and we found it extremely relaxing and scenic. You will need to assess whether this is for you or not, but if you like the slowed-down pace, then this tour can be highly recommended.

    This was a very disappointing tour. The bus left at 8:30, we were in the boat immediately thereafter where there was a glass of port, which we did enjoy, but all other wine, or even a snack, needed to be purchased, until lunch. The boat trip is long and scenic, however, after a tasty lunch, we went up to enjoy the top deck for a few minutes. Upon our return, all wine and all glasses were cleared off our table. It was 2:30. ( other tables still had their glasses and drinks) When we asked for the wine back, We were told we would be back in port in an hour and lunch was over. We could buy wine if we wanted it. We mentioned this to the tour coordinator less than an hour later, as a point of information for her, she gave an excuse that they assumed we were done because we walked away. This is a disingenuous and unacceptable answer- we’re not allowed to see the view? We have to guard our drinks? She tried to get us the wine back which was not the point, we had already purchased it. When I asked what time it was ending which was an hour earlier than scheduled, I just try to understand why, not complaining about it but just to understand (I am a travel agent) her response :you want it to last another hour? Again, not a good response, I really was trying to understand how it worked. It did not go well. This cost us €88 each and completely not worth the price, we did enjoy the port and the lunch but the rest was disappointing, particularly the attitude and responses.
