This was my second trip with Amawaterways and it was just as wonderful as the first. I have actually booked two more with them through Karen at Affordable Tours.

The AmaWaterway trip along the Douro - with extensions in Madrid and Lisbon -- provides a wonderful autumn interlude in Iberia. The program is especially strong for the one week spent on the Douro. The programs in Madrid and Lisbon leave a great deal of free time -- good if you can arrange your own meals and excursions, not so good if you like more arranged, especially after long flight to Europe.

I was very pleased with this river cruise provided by AmaWaterways. This was my second cruise with them and they are great, Everything is included in the one price- transportation from an to airport, daily side trips, wine at meals, snacks. I will use them again in the future.
