Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up in an 8-seat minivan from your accommodation in Porto before exploring the stunning Douro Valley. Visit local wineries, savor wines and delicacies, learning about the wine making process, before cruising down the Douro River on a river cruise. Begin your tour with a visit to the Croft Vineyards and learn about the entire winemaking process from your guide. End your visit with a port wine tasting accompanied by a careful selection of Portuguese cheeses. Then head towards the village of Pinhão, where you will embark on a 1-hour boat trip. Relax as you float down the calm waters of the Douro River and admire the landscape of the valley. Afterward, sit down for lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant. Choose between meat, fish, and vegetarian menus. After lunch, visit the winery of a small table wine producer. Learn about the differences between premium wines, and the techniques used to produce them during a private guided tour. End your visit with a tasting of olive oils made by the same producer. As you return to Porto, you’ll enjoy panoramic views along a scenic road.

We ended up in a very small group - only four guests and the guide. We were in a comfortable van and had a great time the entire way. Our guide was so knowledgeable and personable making us all super comfortable and made sure we had a fantastic adventure. 10/10 would absolutely do this again.

Book this tour asap. Sergio was an amazing guide, he took us from Porto to Douro seamlessly while giving us some history on Portugal and it's culture. Our group was 4 people + 2 others that joined us who we had way to much fun with. We chose this one for it's private tour aspect, the max amount of people allowed on the tour is 8. You are driven in comfortable sprinter van. We tasted Port wines with a Portuguese cheese board drove over to lunch where we were given 3 food options + a shot of espresso. We then headed over to a winery where we had a tour + tasting along the way from wines to more port wine (after we commented on being big Port fans haha) The wine was phenomenal and our host at the winery was hilarious. We were given bread + olive oil tasting + 3 different types of honey. If I am ever in Porto again, I would re-book this tour.

The tour was wonderful! Went to two different wineries, one was a larger company and the other family owned. We tasted both port wines and reds/whites. The scenery is amazing and our tour guide, Ricardo, was very informative and funny. Would definitely recommend!!
