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.

    The guide (Ricardo) was terrific - friendly, enthusiastic and engaged, with plenty of interesting facts at the ready, and making a good job of keeping the whole trip on track. The guides at the vineyards were also fantastic - friendly and informative. We’ve learnt a lot about Porto and Douro wines. The food and service at the River restaurants were excellent. The boat trip was a bit of a letdown, too many people, not everyone was equally able to enjoy the views, and some of the passengers blatantly flaunted the mask requirement. In terms of COVID safety more could have been done (COVID passport requirement, stricter mask enforcement, not seating strangers together at the restaurant). Perhaps reordering of stops could be considered, for example boat before the second vineyard?

    I booked this tour last minute and glad I did! The Douro Valley is beautiful and was a highlight of my stay in Porto. I liked that we visited both a smaller producer and a larger producer (this was one of my reasons for picking this particular tour). My only wish is that we would have done a port tasting with the larger producer on my particular tour (I believe it changes) as they are the oldest port wine house. Luckily I was able to try some! The drive and bus were comfortable. An unexpected and lovely surprise was the quality of the lunch on this tour! I am usually skeptical of tour lunches, but this one exceeded my expectations. The River restaurant has nice decor, attentive staff, good wine and delicious food. I recommend booking this tour and enjoying a day in the Douro Valley!

    This tour was wonderful. Our guide Evu was amazing. Very knowledgeable about Douro Valley and the various wineries. We stopped at 2 wineries and had great wine tastings. During the day lunch which was included and we ate at a superb venue "The River". The entire lunch with wine and dessert was delicious. The overall experience was beautiful and I highly recommend this tour
