What can i say? I booked this tour while visiting Porto with my two sisters and it was so easy to arrange the night before the tour through the website. Andre Vidal was our fantastic tour guide and throughout the day, he was engaging, thoughtful and kept the tour moving in a well paced manner. He clearly knew lots about the area and conversed in lots of different languages to support the others in the group. Manuel, our bus driver, is deserving of honourable mention as he got us safely and punctually to and from all places on our trip. It was a high quality tour; the lunch spot, winery, river cruise and sights were all so scenic and atmospheric. The food and wines were delicious. 10/10!

A lovely outing in the sunshine

We were picked up on time. Triago gave us extensive information about the valley and the wines. Lunch wasn't very suitable for us, but the wine-growing tour and the calm cruise were great for our youngsters too. Arrived back in Porto around 5.30pm. A successful trip into nature to Porto city!

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.
