Why choose this experience

On this fantastic 6-day tour, you'll have the chance to discover the mystical city of Porto and enjoy an extraordinary cruise in the Douro Valley aboard the luxurious Spirit of Chartwell.


Porto is Portugal's second largest city, known as the "Invicta City" because it was never conquered by invaders. Located by the Douro River, Porto was voted "Best City Destination in Europe 2022" and has a historic center considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.


The banks of the river connected by the D. Luís Bridge present the most recognisable image of Porto's postcards and are one of the best places to savour the views of the city.


Famously designed and refurbished for Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee celebrations on the River Thames in 2012, you can travel like royalty aboard the opulent Spirit of Chartwell. Full of elegance and refinement, the vessel's design evokes a classic luxury yacht with a touch of Pullman railway grandeur.


It's the perfect opportunity to enjoy an exclusive tour of the Douro River, which will show you all the beautiful panoramic views of Porto and the Douro Valley.
