Your first stop is Peso da Régua, a sprawling riverside town famed for its production of port wine.

Throughout the day, visit areas that show you the potential that the region has. Stop for a typical Portuguese lunch that includes three amazing dishes to choose from (fish, meat, or vegetarian).

Sated, board a boat and enjoy a river cruise down the Douro; delight in your beautiful surroundings before you return to the coach and travel to another viewpoint to capture sweeping panoramas of the landscape.

Stop at a beautiful viewpoint before returning to your Porto hotel and bid your guide farewell.

Traveler Tips


Nice tour, beautiful scenery, comfortable bus ride with WiFi available.
The trip is superb value for money, very enjoyable, and accessible for people with minor mobility difficulties (I require a stick to walk, but am sufficiently mobile to climb into a minibus) .
This is a full day tour with a fairly long but manageable drive.

A must do in PORTO !!
FLYNN_P, Jan 2023
Great experience, highly recommended Tour guide Melinda and the driver were awesome and friendly. Thanks
A definite waste of money. Not worth it
sylvie_m, Jan 2023
The experience does not match at all the description. A long drive to get to Port tasting session in Regua, crammed in a MINIBUS, where one cannot see a thing. After 2 hours drive, coffee stop at one place, in the middle of nowhere located in between a road and a railway. Drive 2 or 3 km for Port tasting. Quiet nice Experience , the only one actually. Then drive back same place where we had coffee stop for lunch (basic tourist lunch, no local specialities - Veg soup, Salmon, kiwi ). JUST after lunch wine tasting, 100 meters away . THen drive to a cruise on the Douro , which is a bit of a joke. Then drive back to Porto.
A very good way to experience the Douro Valley wine country.

My daughter and I throughly enjoyed our Douro Valley experience. We were picked up at our Airbnb. We stopped for a bite to eat, coffee and bathroom break before getting on the boat for our leisurely ride up and back down the river. We then went to a tasting, lunch with wine choices, and another tasting. Ivo was the best guide! He was upbeat, funny and creative! I would definitely recommend this experience!

Ivo is the best
Robert_R, Jan 2023
Great trip. Highly recommend. Ivo, our guide, made it better!!! Kudos to Ivo! Good food. Good wine. A wonderful tasting experience
Want an excellent guide ask for Paolo
Heather_M, Jan 2023
The tour with Paolo was amazing. If you want a tour where you beat all the other tourists and a guide who is highly knowledgeable ask for Paolo. The trip itself involved going to two different wineries in Douro, stopping at different stops for photos and a boat ride (with more wine). Before booking I looked at several other tours- a lot said the food was rubbish (with other tours), with this tour however the food was incredible, I’d have happily paid extra for each of the 3 courses we received it was that good!
Worth the price!
Kanchan_Q, Dec 2022
Catia and Rhui were good hosts and our guides for the day. I thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular view, fine wine and authentic Portuguese food.

Guide Paolo was amazing. He gave us insights of Douro Valley. He was funny and made us comfortable all throughout the tour. The wines were exceptional. Lunch was fabulous and the river cruise was cherry in top. We had a great weather and was able to enjoy the views of the Valley.
Taste of Porto
Ajifolake_B, Nov 2022
This was a great trip overall, from the hotel pickup to the wine tasting and the boat ride, an all around great way to truly appreciate what it takes to make the Porto Wine we enjoy. Ivo, our guide shared some historical facts with us throught the ride to and into Douro Valley, that added that extra touch to the trip, it also helped that he was incredibly funny. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Great day in The Valley
