Portugal Perfection – Lisbon, Douro, Porto & Salamanca River – 08 Nov 2020

We have updated this tour to make it even better! Now includes pre-cruise time in Lisbon + airfare!

The Douro is fast becoming one of the most popular rivers in Europe for Cruising, especially for those who have already cruised the Rhine and the Danube Rivers. We have chosen a fabulous cruise with Riviera Travel River Cruises for our Solo Travellers and have included some extra nights accommodation and of course included the airfares. Riviera not only have beautiful ships with lots of inclusions, they have very affordable prices, especially for our solo travellers.

So here is the deal with Riviera Travel River Cruises.

Flights to Lisbon and return from Portugal, transfers throughout, 3 nights hotel in Lisbon with day tour included, transfer to Porto, 1 night in Porto and 7-night cruise. The itinerary is designed to go at your own pace so plenty of time to see what you want to see or maybe just wander around and soak up the atmosphere.

The cruise is inclusive of all meals, shore excursions and as a special bonus has a drink package included. We will arrange a meetup for those able to make it in Mandurah prior to the cruise and will link up the group via email so you get to know each other before you leave.

This is truly the best deal for Solo Travellers that you have ever seen.
