Such a great time!

This was completely worth the money! A great mix of educational and relaxing. The group wasn’t too big and our tour guide Anna was amazing! Would completely recommend!
Very entertaining and informative tour. Guide was very good and very engaging, and the pours at the port houses were very generous. One small criticism: there was a lot of filler and the tour could have been 30-60 minutes shorter without losing its charm. For example, there is no need for the members of a large tour group to spend 15 minutes introducing themselves to everyone else at the beginning of the tour.
What a beautiful tour of the Douro valley. Two port tours, excellent lunch and a boat cruise on the river. Our guide Joac Sousa was fun, informative and a great source of information. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Peter our tour guide was really good. Very informative and made the tour interesting and fun.It was interesting to get to know all about the history of Port and the different kinds. The tasting was great!
David was an outstanding tour guide plus the 4 hour tour and 7 tastings flew by! Great service and so enjoyable. David is a great example of a local guide who clearly wants everyone to enjoy Porto and Gaia.
