Good content though hard to access

 on 8 September 2017

This is a useful guide if you are planning on a trip up the Douro. However, perhaps it’s my age or my smartphone: I found it hard to navigate when I was travelling so ended up not using it very much. In particular it seemed impossible to flip between entries easily or look up the contents index without scrolling all the way back to the start which took ages. A paper version, if small, would have been far better for me..

Useful guide.
