We thoroughly enjoyed our day with our guide, Milena, who has a fine grasp of the English language and a charming and outgoing personality. The day is well-thought out with welcome stops along the way to take in the beauty and to stretch your legs. The two visits to the Porto makers were informative and entertaining. Lunch was nice and the boat ride at the end was a nice change in perspective.

Paulo was amazing with our group and our kiddos in particular. The tour was on time, the group was perfect and Paulo was perfect with a mix of knowledge and history. I highly recommend this tour to anyone in Porto for a couple of days!

We had a wonderful trip to the Duoro Valley. Milena was an excellent guide and we enjoyed both vineyards - Marrocos and Tedo - as well as the restaurant and the boat cruise.

The best tour I've attended. Excellent and interesting guides, delicious wine, hearty and mouth-watering lunch. Recommends!

Excellent trip! The food and wine was amazing. Really fun thing to do to see the Douro Valley!
