Full description

Witness the rippled, steep landscapes of Portugal's dramatic Douro Valley when you embark on this full-day wine tour from Porto.

A luxury van will whisk you between two wineries, a restaurant and a dock, where you'll snake up the river on a traditional Portuguese Rabelo boat. Along the way you'll learn all about Port wine and the history of the region on this all-inclusive trip.

Stop for a quick photo break as you wave goodbye to Porto, and swap city scenes for the rolling curves and dramatic landscapes of Portugal's wine country.

Drop into not one but two wineries where terraced vines cling to the steep hillside and enjoy a tasting of different lesser known Douro wines and world-famous Ports.

When your stomach starts to grumble the van will make moves to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch with traditional Douro dishes.

See out the afternoon aboard a traditional Rabelo boat. These wooden vessels were originally used to transport wine barrels downstream to cellars in Porto, but now are used for relaxed cruises where you can soak in a new perspective on the Douro Valley while sipping a final glass of Port wine.

On the return journey to Porto the minivan will pull up at a magnificent viewpoint so you can snap a final postcard-perfect image of the UNESCO World Heritage listed region.

What a wonderful tour! Melina, our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining! We had a great 3 course lunch with lots of wine. The wineries were very organised and made an effort with information and tastings. Just a note that Douro Valley is much hotter than Porto, check the weather in the area before departure to make sure you are dressed accordingly. Luckily the bus and restaurant had AC. Enjoy the lovely scenery and all the port, wine and food on tour!

Guided tour to Douro valley This tour was great. We visited two vineyards, had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant and had a boat trip in the end.  The first vineyard was Quinta de Marrocos, a smaller, family owned farm where they are still using traditional methods for producing port. Beautiful area.  We had lunch at The River restaurant, where the food was delicious. The second vineyard was a larger, commercialized one called Quinta do Roêda.  Finally we had a boat tour from Pinhão which lasted an hour. Here we could enjoy the valley from the Douro river itself.  Throughout the tour, our amazing guide Milena told us all about the valley. She was friendly, funny and welcoming and did a great job guiding us and making sure that everyone had a great time. Props to our driver as well, driving us on some narrow, steep roads, keeping us safe throughout.  Be prepared if you are visiting in the summer month. The valley is extremely hot. It was 38 degrees celsius in August.

We had a wonderful tour. Our guide, Ivo, was knowledgeable and very helpful and kind. The vineyards were beautiful, the port was fabulous, the lunch better than my expectations. We also tremendously enjoyed the other people on the tour. It was very much worth the money and one of the best guided tours I have done.
