"Cheers to our very personable and very informative tour guide, Antonio! The winery experiences he arranged for us were all awesome. Incredible views, terrific wines, and very warm and welcome receptions at each of the wineries. My friends and I loved this tour and I would heartily recommend it for anyone planning to visit this incredible wine country. I'm convinced that your guide's personal relationships with wineries makes all the difference!"

"My experience with João was one that I will never forget. He was so extremely charismatic, laid-back and knowledgeable. I immediately felt as ease when he picked us up right outside of our hotel. His English is perfect and he is a great conversationalist. The trip itself was magnificent. I am so so glad I found this experience. João picked us up and we went to the Mateus palace. I learned so much just from talking with João. He went with us to do everything all day. From the private tour, to a great home cooked meal (that was one of the best meals of my life), to Port tasting in the Douro Valley, to going out on the river — João with us and made sure we were having a great time. It would not have been the same without him there! He was such a pleasure to be around. He brought us port and homemade custard pasteries that his family made. And was talk photos of me and my dad the entire time!! I had such a great time the entire day and I felt so taken care of and at ease. Every single penny was well worth it. I will never forget this day. And it was unforgettably amazing in a large part due to Joao. Thank you for everything. I cannot wait to return and have another tour! I cannot recommend this company and João enough!!!"

★★★★★
"Our guide, Jorge, is very knowledgeable, attentive, humorous, and flexible. Thank you for your delightful company! It gave our group wonderful memories and a better appreciation of Portuguese culture. From the scenic drive to the lunch at Cais da Foz, the experience was like an excellent appetizer to further explore the region's culture and cuisine. Our favorite of the 3 wineries were Favaios and the Quinta Seara d'Ordens, although Quinta de Avessada also had its own flavorful uniqueness."
★★★★★
"I could not rate this experience enough it was amazing. Myself and my boyfriend were the only ones of the tour with our tour guide Ana, Ana made our experience exceptional and she is a credit to the company. From the tour to our lunch to her answering all our questions we could not of asked for a better guide! I would highly recommend this tour, a great day and so many different wines/ports to taste."
