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.

This tour is a must if you are in Porto. Our guide was Marco and he was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in an easy to understand manner. His charismatic personality with fun facts made the tour extremely enjoyable. We learned about olive oil, wine, and port making/tasting

Unmissable. it's very hard to put into words or writing how excellent Maria is as a guide. She was joking at the end that one couple had said to her it was the best tour they'd ever been on, but she really is one of those people who've really discovered something they're excellent at.

I should also say that it was a friend of mine in London who had recommended to me to go on this specific tour, and hopefully I can in turn send someone else i know too.

We skipped the boat tour, but bought a bottle of white wine from the first winery to drink by the shore, though the others who took the river cruise were very complimentary of it - I guess we could've drank our wine on the boat?

We had some extra time at the beginning so Maria took us to this little village bakery - I totally suggest buying some bread. Wine, bread and oranges were very much the theme of our day.

The scenery all over Douro is breathtaking. I miss it already being back in London.

Porto in general has totally captured my heart.

Thanks again, Maria.

This was top notch, well organized, fun and informative trip led by two amazing and knowledgeable guides - Maria and Hugo. Absolutely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the region. We were taken to off the route places for bakeries, olives, honey, almonds, wine, port and fabulous regional lunch. To say I throughly enjoyed my day would be an understatement.

Driver/guide Maria provided excellent commentary and a well-planned tour. We enjoyed a surprise stop in a tiny village where we visited the one-woman bakery. The table wine and olive oil producer tour was hosted by a charming woman who was most generous with the tastings! Our lunch was delicious traditional Portuguese food with a great quantity provided. The port wine tour and tasting hosted by Maria was also excellent. A great day.
