Full description
Start your full-day tour in the center of Porto where your guide will introduce you to the rich history of the city and share some intriguing anecdotes with you. Travel in style in a comfortable minivan to Peso da Régua, in Northern Portugal for a short coffee break.  Next, head to the first winery stop on the itinerary. Discover and taste the region's famous wines while admiring the panoramic views of the vineyards that weave across the landscape. Around midday, you’ll move on to a restaurant for a delicious local Portuguese lunch. Choose from fish, meat, and vegetarian options. Continue your journey to the second vineyard where you will learn about the various stages of winemaking from a vineyard specialist and get to try out some of Douro’s finest Porto wine. As a special treat, stop at the Pinhão Railway Station, whose walls are beautifully decorated with blue glazed mosaic tiles depicting sceneries of the Douro Valley and its history of port wine production. Before returning to Porto, take a scenic 1-hour river cruise along the Douro River, where you can mingle with the other guests you've met along the tour. On your route back to Porto your minivan will stop at an amazing viewpoint where you can take beautiful pictures of this UNESCO World Heritage site.

Pick up from our Airbnb was convenient and prompt. Our tour guide, Ivo was knowledgeable and fun and answered all of our questions patiently. Douro Valley is breathtakingly beautiful and with the visits to 2 different wineries gave us good insight and knowledge about the area, Port wine making and families who have lived in the area for hundreds of years. Highly recommend the tour!

Excellent tour that gives a perfect taste of the Douro valley. You visit two wineries: one for a Port tasting and one for a wine tasting. The explanations at the two sites were nicely complementary. There were a couple of photo breaks on the journey to/from the valley. Lunch was excellent and very generous. The boat trip was a relaxing way to end the day before heading back to Porto. The guide who was with us on minibus gave a lot of great information the whole time.

It’s a well balanced tour which checked all the boxes in my to do list for Porto. Our guide and the driver were great, so the trip went really fast. The lunch was at a cozy, modern restaurant. The boat tour on an electric boat let us relax in the end, no motor noises, really nice.
