What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"We had an excellent day on this tour. We were picked up early from our hotel in a comfortable mini van. We were taken out to the Douro valley stopping to look at some spectacular views. Throughout the journey the tour guide explained the countryside, the environmental conditions that suit wine making, the history of the area and of the development of port wine. We visited 2 wineries, one larger one that supports one of the large Port makers in Porto, the other a smaller private family run winery that produces wine, olive oil and honey. We had lunch in a local restaurant. We had an hours cruise on the river, in a traditional wooden boat, used in the past to transport the wine down the river to Porto. An excellent day altogether. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour."
