Thumbs up to Ricardo. Very knowledgeable and hospitable guide! Good food and great wine! It's an enjoyable day tour!
An excellent tour. Our guide Barbara was absolutely wonderful. She was knowledgeable and very friendly.Highly recommended!
This is the most amazing wine tasting trip and the lovely cruise. A must for visitors to PORTO. Barbara our guide was great, friendly and jovial all the way to make it even more fun. The lunch was good.
We had a great time! The tour guide Pedro did a great job communicating in Portuguese, Spanish and English. The local food/wine provided in Pinhão was delicious. Highly recommend.
What an experience!Beautiful places with very nice and hard working people.Don't skip the river cruise,it's worth it.Our tour guide,Pedro ,was the best.Lot of knowledge about Portugal's history,about wine.Pretty much about everything.My husband and I had one of the best days of our 2 weeks trip in Portugal.
We didn't know anything about the Douro Valley prior to booking the tour............boy what a beautiful location and wHat a great tour !! It's a small group tour, which is always better, and you visit two local producers, the second one late in the day concluding with port and wine tasting in the hosts home......a real treat and fabulous hospitality. The boat trip on the beautiful river provided great photo opportunities prior to lunch at a really nice local restaurant.
Our driver/guide/host Barbara was a real gem.........full of information and fun....thanks Babs !! Absolutely recommend this tour.
Very enjoyable day with a knowledgeable and interesting guide.
This was a fantastic day trip from Porto -- Pedro was a great guide! We loved visiting the small quintas and seeing the beautiful views of the Douro Valley. The boat trip and Portuguese lunch were both fantastic!
Really awesome tour! Such a different experience from Porto itself, we really enjoyed it. Great tour guide, Barb, who was very knowledgeable and made the trip really fun. All the others in our tour group were so nice too, it made for a great day. We did the boat tour option and recommend this additional part of the tour. You get a different vantage point from the river, and it makes for great photos! Lastly, the owners of the vineyards introduce themselves and talk about their ports, etc. The whole family gave us a tour at the first vineyard, which exceeded my expectations. Overall, I highly recommend this tour.
A wonderful experience mainly due to our guide and driver Pedro. He was so great to entertain us during this 12-hour tour. We had such a great experience of Douro, its river and wineries. And the 2 wineries he brought us to were wonderful. People are charming and welcoming. This tour was a key point of our trip to Portugal. We recommend it without hesitation....best if with Pedro.
Great overall experience. It really was all I could have hoped for. We visited two wineries, both with excellent wine that you wouldn't necessarily find in Porto. The lunch really opened our eyes to some delish Portugese dishes. My wife and I had a great time talking to the guide and other couples!
Although it was almost overshadowed by the rain.... this tour did not disappoint in the slightest!!
Both wineries which we visited were absolutely lovely and with unbelievably generous hosts! The lunch which was also included in the tour was amazing and the food and wine was never ending.
The guides were fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely one of the best wine tours we've ever done! The view of all the vineyards was breathtaking (highly recommend doing the optional river cruise). Would recommend this terrific tour to any one - don't miss this gorgeous day out if you're visiting the region.
That tour was a pure pleasure. Our tour guide, Barbara, was very professional, and she defiantly is a people person. We sow so many breathtaking places, we had huge Portuguese lunch, we had a coffee in a very charming local pastry shop, and we visited two wine houses (the owners greeted us personally). We took a one-hour river cruise. I can’t believe we did that much in one day! I learned a lot about Portugal, and Portuguese people. The country is beautiful, the people are even better! If you are in Porto – don’t miss this tour!
Happy travelling :)
The tour was fantastic! It was personable (max of 8ppl) and encompassed everything we wanted to experience! First stop was to taste olive oil, wine and honey at a local producer. Then lunch at a typical restaurant followed by a stop into a small Port producer where we had a tour of the farm and making of port followed by tastings in a Portuguese house. Pedro our guide was fantastic and we had a great group of ppl. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get out of the main tourist trap and experience some traditional portugal!
