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.

    This tour was a great introduction to port wine, some Portuguese history, and wine making. Ivo was a great guide and I appreciated his humor mixed with his historical knowledge. Rao was a great driver as well and safely took us to the wineries which are very elevated. The boat ride was nice especially if you are able to sit in the front of the boat. We went to two different wineries - one more commercial and the other family led. It was interesting hearing from both wineries how much work it takes to produce port wine. The lunch was good and had a vegetarian option of pasta, soup appetizer, bread and oil, and fruit or cake for dessert. I liked how we were able to sample both ruby and white wine at the wineries. The port wine jam was great!

    Always wanted to do this trip and it never disappointed. The change in meeting point worked in our favour as it was closer to our hotel. Valentim our guide was really good managing a group of almost 20. After a little hiccup of a another group delaying the tour, it was all quickly forgotten as we had an amazing, exciting, Knowledgeable tour learning about the vino verde enroute and the specially shaped cakes that the women made in celebration of having children… the vineyards, wine, port and lunch with a view were excellent. Pinhao village was my favourite and the cruise on the local boat made for a relaxing experience- with lots of friendships made! Definitely worth it. Thank you Valentim.

    We had a wonderful trip to the Douro River Valley with Francisco as our guide…..we had a brief stop in Amarante (long enough for a pastry) and then were off to the beautiful Douro River Valley for our first port tasting and a wonderful lunch. After lunch, we went for about a one hour boat ride and the perspective from the water was very pretty. After the boat ride, we headed to our next vineyard and tasting….lots of very interesting info was provided during both tastings. It was a long day but well worth it to see the beautiful Douro River Valley….if you’re in Porto you should take this tour!
