What people are saying about Carvoeiro

This was an excellent experience. Our host was wonderful and provided a great overview of the wines and the estate. We sat on a long table with other guests, which is a great concept, so we managed to make new friends and share experiences, which was great! The weather was perfect, which really helped and was a surprise for January. The sun was blazing, we enjoyed great wine, good food and received a great presentation of the wine's from our wonderful host....what more could we want?! I definitely recommend this experience! Unfortunately our Uber driver was unable to find the venue to pick us up, but our host, kindly assisted by calling a local taxi company to collect us - she definitely went the extra mile with her customer service and we really appreciated it. The delay in leaving allowed us to experience the wonderful sunset from the estate, which was lovely! Thank you Morgado Do Quintão & Thank you GetYourGuide for including the experience & having a great customer service team!!
