This was our sixth trip with AmaWaterways and we've already booked our seventh, so they must be doing something right!

This was my second trip with Amawaterways and it was just as wonderful as the first. I have actually booked two more with them through Karen at Affordable Tours.

The AmaWaterway trip along the Douro - with extensions in Madrid and Lisbon -- provides a wonderful autumn interlude in Iberia. The program is especially strong for the one week spent on the Douro. The programs in Madrid and Lisbon leave a great deal of free time -- good if you can arrange your own meals and excursions, not so good if you like more arranged, especially after long flight to Europe.

I was very pleased with this river cruise provided by AmaWaterways. This was my second cruise with them and they are great, Everything is included in the one price- transportation from an to airport, daily side trips, wine at meals, snacks. I will use them again in the future.
