Bought the tickets in advanced, pages the same as everyone else. As we got in, CP staff greeted us with brochures. So far, so good. We sit. So does everyone else. Only... We were on the left side of the train, with no view to Douro river. Why? Even after we alerted CP staff about other passengers who, not contented... More

a lovely little ride on this historic train (which isn't always steam), all along the river douro - spectacular scenery. The first thing they do is bring everyone a bottle of cold water, which was very welcome. Other nice touches were the traditional folk singing group that came along for the ride. Although we didn't know the traditional songs, the... More

This is a train trip along the douro river. You make two stops in pinhoa and tua. On the stations is not that much to do. But the trainride is fabulous. One small thing the train doesn't turn so if you booked on the left side you stay there vice versa. They should turn that around on your way back... More

Book it in advance. Wonderful views over Douro Valey and slopes. With stoppovers in Pinhão and Tua stations. Offering port wine, special sweet candies, with a folk group performing in the train. Don´t miss the loading of water of the steam train on each station/stop and when it turns around (back) in Tua. A good way to see how people... More

This is a nice a pitoresque rail station that is located in the heart of the Port Wine region little town: Pinhão. It's a very small one and has a nice wine shop/bar that you can relax. The most interesting point about this station is that you can see awesome Portuguese style tiles on the exterior walls. This is also... More

We booked this Historic train trip in August 2014. We were disappointed that the 'historic' train was not a steam train, as it looked in all the photos we saw. But the carriages were lovely and it was great that the old windows went all the way down so we could take photos. Make sure you book the right side... More

It takes the whole day and is definitely worth it! The scenery is magnificient with Douro river and portwine yards. The old stations are full of feeling and the train has lovely wooden decoration. There were a small food market at Tua station (possibility to buy jams etc. to bring home). The last train of 2014 had quite an amount... More
