      Hi,
      I´m looking for a short River Cruise from Miranda do Douro in Mid-September.
      I can only find 2 different (1hr. / 2hrs.), but they start not before 4pm.

      We have our Hotel in Bragança, so I´m wondering if there are other Tours with an earlier Departure? The weekday will be Wednesday or Thursday, we can choose.
      And if somebody is well versed with Trás-os-Montes please have a look at my two planned daytrips. Are there (better?) suggestions at or beside the plan? Something special to do, see, eat,...
      Day 1: https://goo.gl/maps/TAKvF
      Day 2: https://goo.gl/maps/dX0D9
      (we come from Viseu at Day 0, at Day 3 we are going to Ponte de Lima),

Our stops include Ponta Delgada, Cadiz, Almeria, Cartagena, Rome, Olympia, Santorini, Rhodes, Ephesus, Athens and Gythion.

In addition, I would also like to be taken to a records office to look for potential relatives. All my great grandparents were born in the Azores on my mother's side. I know the Machado one came from Terceira, the Cunha (or da Cuhna) from Graciosa, but my great grandmother who married Manuel Cunha, Mary Josephine Coelho Ramos born 11 Aug 1866 might have come from Sao Miguel. I would like to look into it if possible. Any help would be appreciated for the tour and possible records office. Thank you.
