DOURO to SPAIN Boat Cruise

COMBINE OUR DOURO WINE-TOUR and RIOJA WINE-TOUR with a River Cruise to Barca d’Alva and two overnight stays in Salamanca – Saturday 16th September 2017



If the thought of combining a Douro Wine-Tour and Rioja Wine-Tour appeals, this is a fantastic way of journeying between the two and, we believe, a unique approach to enjoying the two fascinating but quite distinct wine regions.
