Douro Valley Wine Tour from Porto Including Lunch

Spend a day in Douro Valley, visiting two beautiful wineries to sample sparkling wine, Port, local wine and ‘vinho verde’ – a young or green wine. Called ‘adegas,’ the Portuguese wine estates are as much of an attraction as the robust wine they produce – steeped in history and surrounded by heart-stopping countryside. Soak up the scenery as well as the wine, and enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch, too.


  • Day trip to the wineries of Douro Valley from Porto
  • Visit two of the region’s prestigious adegas, enjoying tours of each with a wine-expert guide
  • Explore the wine cellars at the ancient Quinta do Seixo estate
  • Stop in the heart of Douro Valley for a traditional 3-course lunch with local wine
  • Taste acclaimed Port at an 18th-century adega called Quinta do Tedo

What You Can Expect

Douro Valley Wine Tour from Porto Including Lunch

Taste some of the best Portuguese wines on this day trip from Porto!

Leave your central Porto hotel by luxury coach and travel inland to Douro Valley, roughly 1.5 hours away. The area is famous for its scenic landscapes, so sit back and admire the scenery, typified by remote mountains, emerald hills and UNESCO-listed hilltop villages.

Idyllic as it is, the region’s main draw is its wine not the countryside, and, luckily for you, your first stop is one of the valley’s prized adegas. Head inside Quinta do Seixo located in Cima-corgo, the heart of the Douro Valley and take a tour of its cellars. After seeing where the wines are produced, bottled and stored, sample some of the estate’s wares noting the different tones and aromas with your guide.

Move to Regua and visit a nearby local restaurant for lunch and enjoy traditional dishes that originated in Douro Valley. Savor a delicious 3-course meal, featuring fish or meat, with a glass of locally produced wine, and then hop back on board your coach.

Continue traveling deeper into Douro Valley to Quinta do Tedo – an 18th-century adega surrounded by terraced vineyards stacked into the hillside. A small producer, the estate specializes in Port, the fortified wine for which Portugal is famous. Explore the cellars, sample a glass of their gutsy Port, and then shop for a bottle to take home, if you wish.

Relax on the journey back to central Porto, finishing your tour at your hotel in the early evening.

This tour was definitely the highlight of our 12 day Portugal trip. When we first looked at booking our trip to Porto, Algarve and Lisbon we read that a Douro Valley Wine Tour was a must so we started researching online and came across this tour for 8 people with a Douro River Cruise but we unable to get it for the date we wanted so we booked the one with lunch. We booked this from Canada and we a little nervous that everything would be booked when we arrived in Portugal. We had nothing to worry about as everything was looked after, and to our surprised we were getting the original tour we looked at. Our guide Juan John was the best and made the trip so informative and enjoyable. The fact that another group was touring with us made the friendly competition so much more fun. We learned so much about Douro Valley Wines and Ports as well as some of the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. We travel a great deal and would definitely use Viator tours again. Thank you Juan

We had a brilliant day. Pascal was awesome, he had lots of knowlege about the region and about Portugals history. We had our three year old daughter with us and Pascal kept her interested the whole day by joking around and doing a treasure hunt with her. The wine tastings were fun, as was the boatcruise. Lunch was nice too. The views were spectacular, even though it was raining.

The tour was great even though the weather didn't cooperate initially. Our tour guide, Luis, was great - very friendly and worked really hard to make sure you were comfortable and we're having a great time. The tour included two wine estate tours, a nice 3 course lunch and a boat trip on the Duoro river. The first tour was a bit more commercial with a standard walk through the wine cellars and then to the wine tasting room. We had four tastes all of which were good but nothing exceptional. Then we went to a restaurant along the Duoro river. The food was delicious and we definitely were full after the meal. We then took a short boat ride along the river were we could see a number of vineyards along the banks. The weather improved duo g the afternoon and it was a very pleasant way to digest and enjoy the view. Then it was onto the second vineyard which was a very old family owned business with multiple generations involved. This tour was better than the first with the tour guide giving a more detailed tour, sharing more information about the wine making business and the family. The wine tasting was again four different type of Porto wine, some of which were very good. We ended up buying some from this vineyard. We headed back to Porto traveling along the river and through some narrow road along the cliffs. Overall a great day. My only complaint was that the van was not much better than a shuttle bus one takes to the airport. It was not luxury transportation. It was ok for comfort but given the price, I think that the ride out and back could have been a bit better.

My friend and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide gave us a great historical and cultural review of the Douro valley region as well as many personal notes that truly enhanced the trip. Overall, the entire trip rose above expectations. From the wineries, to the lunch and river cruise, the design of the day was well thought out and fun.

The trip didn't get off to the best start due to the guide being an hour late, however he took it upon himself to more than make-up for the delay. Speaking in English and French we were given a wonderful lesson on the River Douro wine industry from past to present along the way to the heart of the beautiful Douro Valley.
We had a morning tasting of fortified wines with stops offs to view the magnificent vista, followed by a three course lunch and hour boat cruise along the river, which isn't advertised on the trip overview. The afternoon was a second tasting and due to his lateness our guide rounded the day off with a visit to Sandemans, which although advertised is not actually on the tour anymore.
All in all we found the trip good value, enjoyable, informative, nice small group and the River Douro and surround is simply stunning, it's an absolute must!
Muinto Obrigado

Excellent. Tour guide Yori was so very well knowledgeable and engaging. Good driver all through. Very respectful. Small group size made it very cohesive. Will love to use service again in other countries if available.
