Tour description

Join this 8-hour river cruise along with your group of no more than 15 to explore the Rio Guadiana River. This has been described as the best way to get to know the real Algarve. Observe the authentic Portuguese gastronomy, culture and live music. Cruise along the river Guadiana between Portugal and Spain and enjoy the nature all the while listening to your guide as they educate you on the river and its banks.

Arrive at the marina and join your group aboard the awaiting boat. Leave the dock and begin to sail up the River Guadiana, the natural border between Portugal and Spain. As you cruise along, you will have a stop at the timeless village of Foz de Odeleite. Observe the natural beauty of "Quinta do Rio", a place of natural beauty with views over the river and town. It was once a wine country with various vineyards and has since been converted to a recreational area with natural entertainments. Stroll through the village, visit the local people, and meet "Ti Rita", the cheese maker. Cool down with a swim in the nearby swimming pool or enjoy a drink at the bar prior to lunch. As the staff serves you a traditional Algarvian lunch, feel free to pair it with red and white wine. Portuguese live music during your break before heading back out on to the river. After your visit, you will begin your cruise back to the dock.
