What people are saying about Pinhão
The wine and tasting at the first winery was delicious and the tour was very well done. It had beautiful facilities and was very relaxing to visit. We wish we could have better explanations at the second winery; they just briefly took us to the cellars and gave us wine to taste. However, the incredible lunch we ate there while we surrounded by the gardens and pool of the house made up for it. After going on this trip, we feel we received a very good introduction to the Douro valley. The boat trip was nice, but some might find an hour to not be enough time.
Halfway up the Douro Valley the weather changed and we had pleasant, partly sunny weather from there our. Daniela (Tânia) was our guide and she made it so interesting and fun. We had 15 people in our group which was perfect. The lunch was amazing and the wine was delicious. They made me a vegetarian lunch which was passable. Get your Guide responded to all my emails and CM Tours was in contact via text and phone the morning of pickup as our street was too narrow for the bus and we had to meet them down the street. I would definitely recommend this tour.
The tour was really good, our tour guide Sara was super friendly with perfect English. The two wineries we went to were great and the whole tour was good apart from one thing. While the non-vegetarians got either sea bass or pork, the vegetarian option was just an omelette with some vegetables and dessert was some watermelon (as the dessert had gelatin in it), hardly the same in terms of cost to make. I honestly think they should give vegetarians some sort of discount or come up with a better alternative!
This is a great way to spend the morning and see the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in the Douro Valley. We did the 10:45am and it was perfect weather. Still hot, but a lovely boat trip along the water. Bring your own headphones for the audio guide if you're interested in listening to it. We listened to a little in the beginning which was great and informative! And then enjoyed the view the rest of the time.
We had an excellent day -- from pick up to drop off -- Delphina went above and beyond of us to have an excellent experience. The Douro Valley is a must see when in the area and this tour allows you to do that! At the second vineyard, we a truly delicious lunch in the most picturesque setting -- no one in our group wanted to leave. I highly recommend this tour!
