Full description
On this 9-hour tour you get the opportunity to have an overview of the history and the landscapes of the Douro Valley. The Douro Valley region is known for its unique landscape where the river is beautifully flanked by green mountains on both sides, forming an interesting “V” shape. Not only these mountains flank the river but they also serve a very important purpose: they are the soil where the wine vines are cultivated in terraces, making this sight even more fantastic. Nevertheless, there are plenty of other things to see in the valley including its rich culture, history, gastronomy, and traditions. The Douro Valley is the world oldest demarcated region for wines in the world! It is also listed as a World Heritage site. After lunch, enjoy a 1-hour panoramic cruise in Pinhão. End your day with a visit to Quinta da Roêda, where you will learn about the process of production of the famous Port wine and also enjoy a tasting of some of the wines produced in the winery.

Very good excursion with Marina and Manuel. The guide gives a lot of explanations on Porto which allows to have more knowledge on the city and on the Douro valley. The mini bus was very pleasant with 28 seats, the viewpoint of the watchtower is magnificent and the restaurant next door very good. The river cruise allows you to see all the Quinta in the city of Pinhao. Very nice tasting only the tour of the estate was a bit sloppy by the guide.

We were a bus full of French and English speakers whom Lolo our guide took care of admirably. He gave us enough information of what we were passing, answered all our questions and made sure to prepare us for each stop. I would NOT have wanted to drive where were did, given the steepness and curves. Claudio our driver was an expert and deserves recognition for his professionalism.
