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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

1st - our guide, Sophia, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the subject. Not to mention her excellent driving skills that is very important in this area.
2nd - the tour to the Douro valley is very interesting and relaxing experience. Accounting to the wine tastings there are two of them and serpentine narrow roads, there is no other choice to visit the area and taste the port at its origins place.
3rd - the description of tour doesn't mention it but there is the river cruise on the boat after the lunch. It's cool and refreshing with multiple opportunities to make nice landscape photos.
4th - lunch is surprisingly good for the tour included event. The table wine is good and they will bring more if you drunk the bottle out. Don't choose the beans with entrails if you're not accustomed to such food as cooked pork stomach etc.
5th - wines in the winery shops are cheaper than in stores thus you may buy the nice souvenir. Good quality port is very expensive even there sometime few hundred euros. But they have very good Moscatels not too sweet and fortified as the port at the discount price sometimes.

The tour was great. Our tour guide, Sophia, was fantastic. She made us all feel very welcomed and comfortable. Her knowledge of the history of the Duoro Valley and ability to explain it in several languages was amazing. I would definitely recommend this tour. Ask for Sophia!!!
