I'm in Portugal and he's in Spain.  The river divides the 2 countries.

Great first cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We wanted to visit a place neither of us had been before. This sounded like an interesting itinerary. The food was excellent. Service was also excellent. Our time on the ship exceeded our expectations. Day trips were variable- programmed for the slowest in the group. I understand accommodating for people who are less able to walk distances, but it often felt like we were held back. We felt like ...

Viking maintained its expected excellent level of service in its Portugal's River of Gold cruise. The itinerary provided wonderful opportunities to learn about and explore the Duoro River region and to venture into Salamanca, Spain (and Santiago de Compostela, Spain on the post-trip). We visited cities, small towns, many wineries, markets and beautiful churches. We enjoyed and learned in all ...

Portugal and Spain are the only two countries I haven't been to in Europe and I heard both were worth visiting. Truly loved Portugal, especially the people who know how to enjoy food and wine. Our Cruise Director was very informative and did a great job. Same with the Chef, Captain and all the staff and tour guides. I like how we visited with locals on our excursions which helped give us a real ...

Our first big trip since covid. (We were doing a cruise supposedly from Singapore to Hong Kong in February 2020. I say supposedly because Hong Kong closed down its port the day we got on the ship, our stops in Vietnam closed their ports as we were sailing). We started touring Portugal on our own, and then met up with Viking in Lisbon. My husband got food poisoning our 2nd night with Viking ...

We went on this cruise to celebrate our friend's 70th b-day, but Covid hit and we ended up celebrating her 72nd b-day. I didn't research the cruise at all so I didn't know what to expect, but I have never heard a bad review for Viking River Cruises before. You won't hear a bad one from me either! We had a simply wonderful time! Portugal is beautiful, the food is delicious, the people are ...

April 2022 - My wife and I have been on numerous cruises (24+) throughout the world on various cruise lines over the years. This was our fifth river cruise on Viking. Our Douro River Cruise started in Lisbon, Portugal on April 4, 2022. We took the pre-cruise option. This was our first trip out of the USA since 2019. Our flight from Florida arrived a few days early so we could enjoy Lisbon ...

The crew, as always, were very attentive & helpful. My husband uses a wheelchair, & we know before starting, that he won’t be able to partake in all the excursions, but he likes being on the ship! The meals & wine were outstanding. We also did the pre-cruise extension in Madrid & the post-cruise extension Road to Santiago, which were very interesting. We’d been to Madrid before, so we wanted ...

The River of Gold cruise was our second Viking River cruise; Châteaux, Rivers & Wine from Bordeaux the first. We also took the fabulous Viking Ocean cruise, In Search of the Northern Lights; a thrilling display right from our veranda. We opted for this cruise after the Lyon & Provence cruise was cancelled by the pandemic in spring 2020. The October 2021 Douro cruise was our first travel experience ...

This was a wonderful small-boat cruise on the Duoro river. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We were expecting some walking tours of the ports where we docked each day, but were almost always met by Viking buses that took us to other interesting sites in Portugal. It was a combination riverboat and bus tour. The buses were nice, but it seemed we spent a lot of time on them. One of the highlights was ...

This was our fourth Viking River Cruise, ( plus one ocean vcruise), and our first that included a tour before the boat. The hotel in Lisbon was elegant, one of the best we’ve stayed at. The included excursions were great, as almost all Viking included excursions are. On the third morning we bussed to Vila Nova de Gaia, across the Douro from Porto, with a stop in the university town of Coimbra. ...
