The tour starts at your hotel or private address in Porto at 8:30 am. You are picked up by an experienced tour guide, driving a comfortable mini-van with air conditioning and driven to the Douro Valley. On the way, our tour guide introduces you to the region, providing you with some local information on history, geography, traditions and of course the wines!

Once in the Douro Valley, visit a charming little winery, starting with a guided tour to understand the essence of Port, its main styles and what makes it different from any other wine. Take a photo of a traditional “wine press” used to manually step the grapes and learn how wine ages in small oak barrels and large oak barrels.

Then take part in a wine tasting session and try some of the best local wines in the company of a specialized guide who tells you everything you need to know about each wine.

After that, you are taken to an amazing riverside local restaurant where a typical lunch is served. Sample traditional Portuguese flavors with DOC Douro wine while meeting other people on your group tour.

Continuing the itinerary, head to the second small winery, having some of the most incredible views of the region. The visit follows the same pattern as the first place, but of course the wine changes. Start touring the place with a local guide, followed by a special tasting of 4 different wines.

Last but not least, visit a third winery in the small village of Pinhão and have a super special taste of a Vintage Port with a panoramic view of the Douro Valley, by the river.
You’re back to your place in Oporto at 6:30 p.m., sure you’ve visited a magical place!

Great day in a beautiful area

★★★★★ Reviewed by Linda on 2019-10-17
We were picked up promptly by our great tour guide who informed us of the itinerary for the day. We spent time at two wineries which were both interesting with tastings. Lunch was excellent at a local restaurant and the river trip was lovely. Would recommend this tour, it was very enjoyable.

We had great day in Douro Valley expertly driven to by Célia !!!! Initially we were supposed to visit 3 wineries but the tour operator was flexible enough to allow us to switch the visit of the 3rd winery with a cruise on the Douro. Very happy of our day in the Valley !!!

Fantastic day; Shayla was fabulous

★★★★★ Reviewed by David on 2019-09-11
My wife and I and our best friends did a Douro Valley Wine tour, and we had an amazing day. It was wonderful. The tour was very well organized and the three stops we made for wine were each unique and lots of fun, with good wines and tour guides. One winery in particular had one of the most amazing views of wine country we have ever seen. The spot we stopped for lunch was a local authentic place and had great food and gave us a sense of how the locals eat lunch. The best part of our tour was undoubtably our tour guide, Shayla. She was fun, knowledgeable, a safe driver, and was extremely invested in making sure we had an awesome time, which we definitely did. She knew a ton about wine, the area, the history of Portugal, and was just great to spend the day with. We would definitely recommend this tour, and especially Shayla as the tour guide. It’s a fantastic way to spend a day in the Duoro Valley.
