Overview

Go wine tasting amid the vineyard-clad hills of the Douro Valley, a World Heritage–listed region famous for its port wine production. Feast on regional specialties with a traditional lunch in the scenic village of Pinhão and visit two wine estates for an introduction to award-winning local varietals. Upgrade your full-day tour from Porto with a sightseeing rabelo boat cruise on the Douro River. This small-group tour is limited to eight people for personalized attention from the guide.
  • Full-day Douro Valley tour from Porto with an expert guide
  • Enjoy a lunch of typical Douro cuisine at a renowned local restaurant
  • Visit two traditional wine estates in the heart of the valley for wine-tasting sessions
  • Learn about the history, culture and people of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Douro region
  • Upgrade to include a Douro River rabelo boat tour with scenic valley views
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of eight people ensures a more personalized experience
Depart from Porto in the morning after pickup from your hotel and get comfortable aboard your minivan for the 1.5-hour scenic drive inland.

Then continue on to Pinhão and admire the scenery with free time to explore the lovely village independently. Perhaps stroll to the Pinhão train station to view its blue-and-white tile murals depicting the scenic countryside and swathes of vineyards that make up the Douro landscape.

If you’ve upgraded your full-day tour to include a Douro River cruise, hop aboard a rabelo boat — a traditional cargo boat native to this region — for a leisurely 1-hour ride. You’ll meander up the Tua river tributary and pass by Quinta da Romaneira before returning back to Pinhão.

Either before or after your cruise (if you've upgraded), you'll pop into one of the wineries on the agenda for the day before lunch. 

After a traditional lunch of typical Douro cuisine accompanied by wine at a renowned restaurant, your guide takes your small group to another family-run estate where you’ll discover local winemaking and enjoy a tasting session of award-winning ports and wines.

Stop by the shop to make any purchases before departing the Douro Valley for the relaxing return drive to Porto, arriving at your hotel in the evening.

Tour was great and the lunch was very nice. Our guide Pedro was fantastic and knowledgeable. Would be good if we can go to 2 Port wineries instead!

Well organized. Great guide. Beautiful region. But was really disappointed by the winery that we visited. Such a great region for wine and the small winery that we visited had pretty bad wine. None of us on the trip bought any. And the wine at the restaurant we had lunch at was almost undrinkable. The afternoon port tasting was fine. Just thought people should know what to expect... was just surprised and disappointed by this piece.

By far, the best tour we took in Portugal, and we took 6. Our guide was funny, knowledgeable and made us all feel relaxed and enjoy the day. We were in a group with a beautiful family of 6 and we got to get the best guide ever! She stopped on our way, we had the chance to enjoy small towns and had delicious coffee. I will recommend this tour to everyone and hope that it up get as lucky as we did with our guide!

Making geography, lovely views and tastings were fabulous! Local lunch was really good and they offered both fish and meat dishes with salad and wine. Worth every cent.

Our guide John was very knowledgable and easy going. Good to have a driver that is experienced and comfortable driving narrow windy roads on this region.

Violeta’s art history background and passion made for very interesting stories including the one about the first woman business owner and her contributions to the area. The wine and port stops were enjoyable and the small size of the tour one I would pursue again.Thank you Violeta for a lovely experience Roxana and DeannaSo. California

Our guide, Hugo, was so knowledgeable and enjoyable to travel with that we didn’t want the tour to end. Be sure to try the port ice cream!
