About the tour

Located on the sunny Iberian Peninsula, Portugal plays host to this impressive rail and cruise vacation. The tour begins on land, exploring the capital city of Lisbon. From here, we move to Sintra and learn why Portuguese royalty chose this location for their summer retreat. Also in Sintra, we board our train for a resplendent ride through the lush countryside of Portugal to the city of Porto. Here, we board the Douro Serenity and set sail down the "River of Gold," the Douro. The valley that surrounds the Douro is a famed wine region and has a rich history dating back to medieval times and beyond. Ports of call include Regua, from which we travel to Lamego for touring and dinner at a wine estate, and Barca d'Alva, where we stay docked for two days of Spanish excursions. The first day takes us to Castelo Rodrigo, a destination with a heritage dating back to the Roman times; the second day, get acquainted with the beauty and culture of Salamanca through touring and an unforgettable flamenco dancing performance. Back on the ship, we cruise up the Douro once more, making a stop in the Vila Real region to visit 18th-century Mateus Palace. As our cruise ship arrives in Porto, we have one last day of touring and adventure - the ideal conclusion to this vivacious Portuguese discovery.
