The Douro is a Portuguese wine region centered on the Douro River in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region. It is also referred to as the Alto Douro — the upper Douro, as it is located some distance upstream from Porto, sheltered by mountainous ranges from coastal influence.
Embark on this once in a lifetime journey with kosher river cruise as you explore the Douro aboard our most popular tour option.
So what should you expect on a cruise along the Douro?
Some studies show evidence of Jewish DNA in 20 percent of Portuguese citizens, so finding Jewish heritage sites along the Douro won’t come much of a surprise. The adventure now lies in discovering more about the Jewish influences of the region that the Inquisition tried to distinguish about five hundred years ago.
As we cruise through the Douro, we will explore Portugal’s crypto-Jewish roots, complemented by a commentary from our Jewish historians. Luxury and heritage have never been so closely knit together in the Douro.
Have you ever tried dining with an unrestricted view of the Douro? Our cruise through this great waterway will give you a one-of-a-kind kosher dining experience. Treat yourself to excellent kosher meals prepared by a master kosher chef as you take in the scenic Douro.
