This turned out to be a very nice tour especially since it's December. Very good guide, extraordinary scenery, great wine and tour. Definitely worth the money.
This tour was great. Some amazing scenery with some good wineries. It provided a good insight to the Duoro wine region, the operation of the wineries and the production of port. George was an excellent guide who provided good insights into the area, it's history and Portugal of today. Anyone interested in wine who is in Porto should ensure they visit the Duoro wine region.
Wonderful day. Can't thank our guide Aida enough. She treated us as though we were old family friends from the minute we were picked up. Very relaxed and jovial atmosphere. The area is stunning and the wine tasty. Lunch is excellent. Aida is a fountain of knowledge - she was even teaching us all the amazing ways to prepare salted cod like a local! Also excellent at teaching us a little bit of portuguese as we went round. So much fun, I can't recommend too highly. Thank you!
Great journey through a fantastic picturesque valley - absolute must-have during your visit of the Porto region. Special thanks to our guide: trip was great, fun and very informative. Fantastic value for this experience.
Fabulous day, the Douro Valley is spectacular pictures do not show how lovely it is. The wineries we visited were very good lots of port wine to taste. Lunch provided on the tour was very tasty and lots of it. Our group had eight people and by the end of the day we were all best friends!! Would recommend this tour to anyone to experience the best of Portugal!
Highly recommended. Jorge, our guide and driver, was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun and took us to some great estates. The Douro Valley is an essential visit when in Portugal and this tour was a great way to experience it.
Amazing day exploring the Duoro Valley, sampling port from three beautiful vineyards and lunch with a breathtaking view of the Duoro River. Definitely value for money as we sampled around 15 ports in total and a must if you are visting the Porto region. Cannot recommend this tour enough!
Semi-private tour only 2 couples with a very knowledgeable guide who made sure everyone was safe, happy, and comfortable. Wineries were awesome! Gorgeous views, great wine. Highly recommend this tour! Great value!
Josh is a great guide and made it fun, with history and information on Portugal! Lunch was great and local. It was a long day but well worth it. We've been to Portugal several times and never seemed to make it to the Douro Valley, which was on the bucket list. Truly awesome! Also a great value!
We were a small group of 8 and had a lot of fun with Andreas discovering the Douro valley. It is a must to understand and appreciate what makes good Portos. Our visit of 2 vineyards comparing the traditional and high tech ways was a revelation. It certainly exceeded our expectations.
This was so much fun. Every aspect of the trip was well planned and well executed. We has wonderful tours at the wineries and George was a great guide. We were never rushed, he never told us we had to hurry the whole day was at the group's pace. It was also nice to be in a group of only 6 people. The lunch was maybe the best I've ever had on a planned tour.
Great trip with an excellent guide, the trip takes from 9am to 5.30pm so it's a long day. Each vineyard you get to sample 4 different ports so be warned don't drive home afterwards.
Excellent value for money. Driver was friendly and informative. The scenery and the wineries visited were all delightfully. It was a trip to be repeated. I would recommend it to anyone.
Spectacular views and wonderful wineries and olive oil manufacturers.

Jorge is great! We learned a lot about the valley and Portugal in general.
Fantastic tour - one of the best days of our vacation to Europe! I booked this very late and the tour operator went out of her way to accommodate us and make sure the tour went off without a hitch. Without a doubt the tastiest and prettiest wine tour we've ever taken - if only Viator could organize discount international shipping for all those bottles of port!
What an experience. Our guide, Jorge, was knowledgeable, friendly, and constantly concerned about all of us--whether we wanted or needed anything. The Douro Valley is stunning, but Jorge made it even better. We visited three wineries, had all the wine we wanted, plus a delicious lunch at a restaurant with great views. This was a great trip, and a great value. Book this trip and hope you get Jorge as your guide.
Douro Valley is a must when visiting Porto and this is the perfect way to see it!
A lot of good wine and beautiful landscapes, the guides speak very good english, highly recommended!
Excellent scenery, well informed guide, not rushed, great food and drink!!
Great tour with an even greater company. We drove with Ida and another gentleman whom I forget his name. They were both great! Ida provided a ton of history about the region and was a crack up. Really great lunch was provided and the views throughout the drive through Dorough valley were incredible. Highly recommend
My wife and I had a wonderful experience. Our driver and guide, Jorge, picked us up on time from our hotel and and then three other French-speaking visitors. Jorge drove and chatted with us in English and French the whole way to Pinhão and back to Porto. He was very informative about wine and port and the history of Northern Portugal. We learned a lot!
It was a long drive there and back and I would recommend this tour for Jorge's informative comments and the three places we visited: Quinta do Tedo, Quinta do Panascal Fonseca and, D'Origem, a wonderful olive oil museum and a working family owned and operated olive oil press. Jorge also stopped on the way to Pinhão for a coffee break and brought us to an out-of-the-way place in Pinhão for a traditional lunch. A very full day in which we learned much about wine, port, olive oil and the Douro!
