What You Can Expect

Douro Valley Small-Group Tour with Wine Tasting, Portuguese Lunch and Optional River Cruise

Enjoy tasting different wines on this tour to Alentejo wine regions

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. You’ll stop briefly in Peso da Régua, the capital of the Douro Valley — a UNESCO-listed region known for its production of port wine.

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.

After a traditional lunch of typical Douro cuisine accompanied by wine at a renowned villa, your guide takes your small group to two family-run estates 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.

What a wonderful day. Thoroughly enjoyed our drive to the Douro Valley with a small group of fellow travellers. Although the mini van was small and on the return journey it was extremely hot as there was no air conditioning. Our drivers was knowledgeable and well informed and kept up a running commentary. The boat trip on the Douro River was enjoyable, lunch was fun and the wineries and vistas were excellent.

Pedro was a great tour guide, he is very knowledgeable about the region and provided some great information. The Douro Valley is beautiful and even on a cold, cloudy day it was an amazing trip with good wine, food, and local flavor. Would definitely recommend the boat ride!

Great tour, really lovely driver and guide who was willing to accommodate us at every turn! We visited two wineries, which were both fantastic. We also had the option for cruise, which we didn't take but instead spent out time tasting more wines in the region. Suited our needs perfectly.
