Nothing like a private tour for the best experience in the Druro. Our guide Delphim is Very knowledgeable and a true experienced guide . We are four ladies traveling and when we were on the river cruise, he gave us each a rose and a glass of port . Very thoughtful! The tour included a stop in Amarante where we enjoyed a dessert selection and a cup of coffee . And later an amazing Portuguese lunch in the Druro region . After that we visited the Sandeman winery . Great selection of wine were offered . All these were included in the tour price . We had lots of laughs and heard lots of stories from Delphim and learnt so much about this beautiful region . We highly recommend using Delphim if you like a more personalized tour .

Great full day out to the Douro Valley. Stopped in a lovely little village for a walk and coffee/cake on the way up. The short cruise on the spectacular Douro river was long enough followed by a traditional lunch before visiting a large Port wine producer which was also very informative. Delfim was a very considerate driver with a lot of interesting titbits of information about the wine industry and Portugese life in general. Highly recommended.
