The river cruise took about two hours to reach the Portuguese restaurant. The English guide said hardly anything about the scenery. The two toilets were basic and uncomfortable. When we walked the short distance to the restaurant we were seated on long bench tables. The food was okay with loads of Sardines, chicken, potatoes and salad. We bought a couple... More

Well-organised and run by super people, the trip was lovely. The lunch, entertainment and pool in the middle of the day were very welcome too. Thoroughly recommended as a great day out.

We had a fab day on this well organised river cruise which runs on the Guadiana river with Spain in one side and Portugal on the other. We cruised for a couple of hours and then walked through a semi deserted village where the colour of the houses denotes the family that lives there! Then on to a restaurant with... More

Great river trip with breath-taking scenery along the Guadiana River, this being the border between the Algarve and Spain. Lunchtime led to a traditional Algarvian BBQ meal with traditional entertainment where all are encouraged to join in. There is also at the restaurant a rather nice swimming pool for patrons to use free of charge and then of course there... More

Wonderful day trip on the beautiful guadiana river full of fun. The food was delicious with both sardines and chicken, wine and excellent music with the possibilty to cool down in the swimming pool if you got too hot dancing. Crew and excursion was wonderful. I strongly recommend, if you want to indulge in the portuguse culture at its best!

We had an excellent fun day on this river cruise, the staff, meal and everything was great. Met some fantastic people. Our Thomson guide Rui for the day was brilliant. Well worth doing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise, a welcomed diversion from the usual running around to see sites. Easy pace, wonderful crew, delightful vistas and the walk from the dock to the tiny village of Foz was a treat. The meal was fun, entertaining and certainly in terms of quality and quantity of food provided, you couldn't possible find fault.

Great day trip ..When you are asked if you would rather walk up through the village or take the mini bus, unless both your legs are broken opt for the walk because this is magical....buy some cheese in the tiny factory. The meal we were served was simple and delicious and plentiful, all grown and prepared on the farm...real food,... More
