Fantastic day out and totally recommended. A real must do!!

What a great day. Went t a couple of fantastic cities during the and our guide Miguel kept us fully informed with his wealth of knowledge. The river trip was peaceful and beautiful and the tour of the Croft estate excellent. A real must do trip to get a real flavour of the Douro region.

I definitely recommend it !

I did this activity with a friend and we both had an amazing day. The guide was friendly and really kind. Most of the people in the tour were Frenchspeaking and he took the time to explain everything in English and French. The visits of the wineries were really great, as well as the lunch and the boat tour. I recommend this experience to everybody !

Great experience in an amazing landscape!

The Douro Valley is a gem. Daniel, our guide, was helpfull, cheerfull and knowledgeble. The stops were well planed and lunch was excellent, served with all you can drink Douro wine. Only the presentation at the Croft estate was a bit stiff and lacked passion. We've been offered very little Port. But the rest of the tour was memorable. Thanks Daniel!
