Arlene was very efficient and very helpful with our booking.

15 Jan 2019

Arlene was very efficient and very helpful. The only issue we have with ROL bookings is that the holidays seem mainly to be from HRW, we would prefer LGW, so it isn’t an easy option for us. Jane Jolliffe

We have purchased many cruises through this company over the years. The staff are always extremely curtious and very helpful. We feel they recognise our loyalty and give us competitive prices for our chosen cruises. Also the follow up emails and paperwork for our cruises has always been punctual and thorough. Well done ROL staff.

Overview


Start your itinerary in Lisbon, and discover the charms of the Portuguese capital with an unforgettable 3-night city break. Then, be inspired by the exquisite passage of the Douro River as it carves through the fertile lands of northern Portugal, marvelling at the ancient treasures of Salamanca and the immersive wonders of Porto. With three days in Lisbon, you’ve time to experience the best the Portuguese capital has to offer. Enjoy a guided exploration of the city, taking in sights such as Belém Tower and Sao Jorge Castle, or journey to the seaside suburb of Cascais and soak up the ambience of this former fishing village. From here, you’ll travel to Porto, and there board the luxurious Scenic Azure to begin your cruise of the idyllic Douro Valley. Enjoy a blissful cruise to Regua, where you can visit Ducal Palace, former seat of the first King of Portugal, or sample Portugal’s finest sparkling wines at Quinta Aveleda – whose captivating gardens alone make the excursion worthwhile. In Salamanca, enjoy a guided tour of the city’s World Heritage-listed sites, followed by a delicious lunch accompanied by traditional flamenco dancers. Travelling back towards Porto, visit the Coa Valley Museum in Pinhão, savour the delicious port wines of Quinta Roeda, and marvel at the beauty of Sao Francisco Church during a private classical music concert, exclusive to Scenic Enrich.
