    I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was great. The stops were amazing. The only thing I didn’t like was the boat tour. You are jammed on with other people that are not in your tour. We were the last people on the boat and there was no place left for us to sit.

    Our tour through the Douro Valley was truly amazing. Our guide Teago, hope I spelled his name correctly…. was awesome! He took the time to get to know all of us on the tour and was incredibly knowledgeable of the history and culture of the area. With him we were able to experience some wonderful wineries and breathtaking views of the region. The hosts at our stops were as gracious as you can hope for. I really can’t say enough about the day we had. Would recommend this trip to anyone!!! 5 star adventure for sure. Thanks Teago

    Tour was punctual, transport comfortable and smooth. Wineries beautiful, staff gracious and very generous with wine, olive oil, bread etc. Lunch was tasty & the cruise was relaxing. All this was tied together very well by our great host/guide, he was well informed, well organised, very friendly, it felt like no request or question would be a problem & that it was an old friend showing you around not a stranger.
