We watched it last night, brought back happy memories of our visit to Porto & the Douro area. A beautiful part of the country.

We have done the Douro River cruise. Very varied and enjoyable although we didn't recognise much of what we saw in this programme apart from the endless vines growing on the surrounding river banks.
