Pick up was prompt. Our guide Joaquim was pleasant , helpful and informative.It was good to see the countryside outside of Porto. There were 8 travellers in the vehicle who all added to a very pleasant day. We enjoyed the wine and port tasting both delivered with knowledge and humour. The scenery along the Douro was amazing.

What a wonderful day we had! You get to experience a lot of things, but the atmosphere is very chilled and the pace very pleasant. Our driver couldn't have done a better job trying to make it memorable for us! The tour is very informative, the scenery unforgettable, the wine and food very good, and you will especially enjoy the fantastic lunch location, really special. I have particularly enjoyed the last tour, Jose and his crew gave a very interesting and fun tour of the vineyard, including olive oil and honey tasting. Highly recommended.

The main entree was not adequate for the price, the after lunch oporto wine was dispense in drops, probably less than 5 mL(incredible). Service was slow.Everything else was expectacular, inclulding the driver., excellent tour guide an human being. My wife get motion sickness and he helped a lot.
