AmaVida the Duoro River Cruise

| Lisbon, Duoro River, Madrid, Barcelona
We were not sure what to expect! We really enjoyed the small ship experience and would do it again in the future.

Douro River

| Douro river
Cruise manager Mariana Santos was excellent

The Beautiful Douro

| Lisbon, Porto, Douro River
Had the time of our lives and would highly recommend it. The Douro is one of the most beautiful areas in Europe that I have cruised. I liked the cruising in the morning and enjoying the beautiful sights along the river and then touring in the afternoon.

Douro river cruise

| Porto, Portugal/Douro river cruise
Allow more time to shop in every excursion. In Spain, due to siesta hour, should allow shopping 1st then tour or set a time to allow either or thereof.

Awesome Week on the Enchanting Douro with Ama

| Portugal - Lisbon, Porto and the Douro River Valley
We loved everything about our trip with AmaWaterways. From the pre-cruise trip to Lisbon to the boat, the crew and service, food and wine, tour guides and itinerary....I wouldn't change a thing. We met the most fantastic people on board and enjoyed every minute of it. They give you options to be very active, or to just relax and they take care of every detail. The food was fantastic, and there are plenty of options. Portugal is a magnificent country, with a tremendous history and a people who are welcoming and full of joy. We are looking forward to our next trip on Ama.

Port wine cruise with extensions in Lisbon and Salamanca/Madrid

| Lisbon, Porto to Spanish border on Duoro River, Salamanca and Madrid
Overall, an excellent value for the variety and activities

Amazing Douro

| Madrid, Douro and Lisbon
On balance, to see the countryside in the Douro, coach travel is necessary but on the whole it was well worth the rides to see the areas around the river.

Port Wine and Flamenco cruise

| Madrid, Porto, Lisbon, etc.
Enjoyable cruise, but not as good as the one on the Danube, where you could walk into town from each port. The crew was excellent. Food could have been better.
