After breakfast, relax and enjoy views of stunning wooded landscapes as you cruise through the spectacular Douro valley to the town of Regua. This afternoon you may choose to join our optional excursion to the medieval town of Lamego, for a chance to admire the spectacular Nossa Senhora de Remedios sanctuary and impressive Gothic cathedral. This evening, dinner is followed by dancing and folk music.​

Today you could choose to join our optional excursion to Vila Real.  Here, you can take in the beautiful gardens of Solar de Mateus, the 18th century country house featured on bottles of Mateus rosé wine. Rejoining the ship in Pinhão, this afternoon we sail through the heart of the famous Porto vineyards, planted in steep terraces on the hills of the river valley, before arriving at Porto Antigo.​

This morning you will enjoy a leisurely cruise back to Oporto.  This is the second-largest city in Portugal and its historic centre is registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Today, the city is mostly known as the home of port wine and after lunch, an optional guided tour of the city will take you to one of its most famous cellars for an opportunity to enjoy a tasting. ​

Today you are free to explore Oporto at leisure, before returning to the ship for lunch.  This afternoon, our optional excursion takes you to the historic town of Guimaraes, birthplace of the first independent king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques.  Admire the beautifully preserved medieval centre of Guimaraes with its narrow streets and pretty plazas.
​This evening you'll enjoy a lovely farewell dinner and traditional show with your travelling companions as your cruise comes to an end.

Enjoy an included sightseeing tour of Oporto and time to explore at leisure, before your return flight to the UK early this evening.
