Very beautiful scenery and the entire staff was very accommodating and wonderful

This trip was wonderful. Our group, of four, did the pre-cruise stay in Lisbon. This gave us a chance to explore the city and learn about the history and culture. We also went to visit Our Lady of Fatima before we ...

Exceptional, enlightening

This cruise was on a smaller river cruise ship of a little over a hundred passengers plus about 30 crew. Service was very attentive without being too intrusive. The crew, particularly the guides were very well ...

Viking River-Portugal & Spain, 2105. Perfect!

We were looking for a Spring, nice weather river cruise, and an earlier cruise with Viking in Russia sold us on this line. We had never been to Portugal -- so their River of Gold seemed like a perfect fit, and it ...

Started well then downhill

Picked the cruise up at Porto for our anniversary. The first 2 nights service and food was 5 star. After that things went downhill quickly, allegedly the chef was taken to hospital. This should not have made any ...

Cruising Portugal's wine country.

This cruise met our requirement to stay away from central Europe yet experience a part of the old world that we had not yet discovered completely. The air travel to and from overseas I could do without. Even though ...

Boring and not for the active traveler.

We took the Torgil for a cruise on the Douro. I commend the staff who executed the Viking program with professionalism and efficiency. I also will say that the cabin was quite nice although I would have liked ...

Portugal's River of Gold

As usual with Viking, we were met at the airport and had no worries about logistics from that point onward. The trip was very interesting and educational. We also took both the pre and post cruise extensions. These ...

Douro Cruise

After a three-flight trip and navigating the "maze" (otherwise known as Frankfurt Airport), it was comforting to be met at Lisbon by a Viking representative, who took us to Lisbon's Hotel Tivoli. This hotel is fine ...

Outstanding river cruise

Our 7th river cruise with Viking and quite possibly the best. It's difficult to grade river cruises against each other as itineraries and scenery are so different but this one was truly fantastic. Starting in ...

River of Gold

This was our fourth trip with Viking and it lived up to our previous experiences. Torgil was a beautiful, modern ship and we were lucky to have a suite (212), which spoiled us: we also took two other cruises in ...

A little known area of Portugal

We have done several river cruises but none as quiet and relaxing as the River Douro in Northern Portugal. It is a beautiful area of the country and when we weren't relaxing, as the ship gently transported us from ...

Best cruise ever...really!

Curious about Portugal and port wines, the small ship was ideal. Having cruised with Viking before, it was a natural to choose this cruise. Unfortunately, my pocket was picked in Lisbon, but the crew rose to the ...
