What You Can Expect

Porto City Tour Including Cruise, Port Wine Tasting and Lunch

Taste delicious port wine on this private day trip

After meeting your guide for a pickup at your Porto hotel, hop aboard an air-conditioned minivan and begin your full day city tour of Porto. Begin with a half-hour drive that explores Porto and its beautiful waterfront. Learn about the city’s blue collar roots that’s helped mold its rich tradition.

Cross the river to Vila Nova de Gaia and discover Porto’s most famous industry, port (a fortified wine). From here, if you have selected the rabelo boat cruise, take a classic trip up the Douro River. Experience how these wooden boats once transported massive quantities of port to the wineries in Porto. As you sit back and unwind, savor a serene ride past coastal sights and under six bridges that cross the river.

Return to the port wine lodge and begin a traditional port wine-tasting. Listen as your guide explains how the port industry produces the world’s best fortified wines. Then, drink up a few varieties of port including a white, tawny and ruby. After enticing your taste buds, continue to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for a hearty lunch.

After filling your belly, voyage to the city center and put your legs to work with a stroll up the Clérigo Tower. At the top of this Baroque-style monument that stands 249 feet (76 meters) tall, gaze over the winding streets below. Snap you last photo, march back down and continue with a walking tour of the city. Head to the Ribeira district and step inside the illustrious Livraria Lello bookshop to admire its ornate wood carved interior. Then relish a visit to the São Bento Train Station adorned with distinguished azulejos tiles. Finally, cruise around Porto Old Town and learn why this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After a day uncovering Porto’s culture and history, return to your Porto hotel and wish your guide happy trails.

A great day! Our group tour turned out to be private with Nuno. He was a great guide- very informed about Porto and with a real passion for the city! We enjoyed the day and it involved a nice amount of walking, but not too much. Only criticism was the drive to the coast seemed like filler. Loved it!

Great day with John our charming guide who is from Porto. Saw lots of the city, and heard plenty of interesting information. Visited viewpoints, 50 minute cruise on the river, nice lunch, visited Crofts and tasted 3 kinds of delicious port. Rounded off with drive up river to Atlantic coast.

I've booked several excursions through Viator and this one was by far my favorite. Our guide Pedro was fantastic and customized our trip for the small group I was with based on what we'd already seen. We spent the whole day together and he was full of great information and bits of history. He truly made the trip fantastic. Loved the port tasting and the photo ops throughout the day.

Excellent tour of Porto, with our knowledgable and friendly guide Pedro. We were picked up from our hotel at 9.20am and didn't finish until 5.45pm. We saw hidden parts of the city as well as all the main tourist areas, with Pedro imparting lots of details about them all.
A three course lunch with wine was included at a small restaurant very nice, we had a 1 hour river cruise and a tour of the Croft port cellar with a tasting afterwards. All in all a great value day, we would thoroughly reccomend this tour.
