Family friendly tours through Lisbon have the interests of all family members in mind and contain interactive games as well as educational features.

A historic steam train ride through the UNESCO listed Douro Valley 

Take a journey on the historic Douro Valley Train running along the Duoro River and travel back in time. The steam locomotive with its five historical carriages runs from June to  October between the cities of Régua and Tua passing a beautiful landscape which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The ca. 3-hour train ride starts with a welcome drink of Portugal‘s famous port wine, some local sweets and musical entertainment before departure. The train journey itself will be accompanied by regional musicians and singers providing first class entertainment whilst the Duoro Valley slowly passes by outside. Explore the gorgeous interior of the train before your stop en route in Pinhão. Watch how the old locomotive gets turned around for your trip back to Régua.
