March 16, 2017

The Portugal and the Douro River Cruise is the hottest river cruise spot in 2017! You can now save with 2 for 1 airfare savings on our September 24, 2017 departure date!


Enjoy wine tastings in the heart of Spain at local wineries. Wine was introduced to Spain by the Phoenicians in 800 BC. Because of this, the wines of the Iberian Peninsula are not the same French varieties we grow in the US. The wines are striking and unique, they also match perfectly with rich foods including thick cut cheddar burgers, empanadas, bbq skewers and pork roast.


Experience a Flamenco show along with local culinary eats and learn about Portuguese folklore. Portugal was one of the first European nations to be unified into a single country. Popular superstitions involve the phases of the moon, the healing power of fountains, and the evil eye, which is the power to inflict bad luck on someone. The evil eye is feared in a number of situations. Ceremonies surrounding death and the occult abound. Portuguese widows are expected to wear black for about seven years, and many wear it for the rest of their lives.
