When in Porto, this is a must! My favorite part of the trip. Seeing the city from the river was an amazing experience. Loved getting to hear about the bridges and how they were built and used.

The Douro queen was comfortable . Whether it was the end of season but the cabins were ' grubby' . The cabin carpet had several stains. The balcony cabin was so small we had to move the empty cases each night to get to bed....More

This was a great river cruise. The Duoro river is surrounded by the most consistently beautiful scenery in the world. Steep banks with terraced vines, gorgeous. Porto rivals Positano (my favorite) but Porto is bigger and has more to offer. Uniworld was very good, food...More

Would I recommend Emerald Radiance on the Duoro – YES in a heartbeat – and I am not easy to please. We chose Secrets of the Duoro and Salamanca simply because we wanted to enjoy the climate and scenery of Portugal whilst lazing on the...More

We spent a week on the Emerald Radiance. The ship and crew were fantastic, a floating 5*hotel. Temperatures vary from mid 20s to mid 39s so take cool clothing and sun screen. Dress is informal but long trousers and shirts are worn by most in...More

Travelled with Riviera Travel in May on the Douro Elegance. Apparently, the only Riviera employee is the Cruise Director, all of the other staff including the other guides are employees of the cruise company, Azul. This was made clear at the outset when one elderly...More
