What people are saying about Foz do Douro

Great skipper with lot of experience in sailing. His instructions while sailing were very clear. As a complete beginner, it was great to experience the whole process of getting the sails up - down and basic sailing maneuver like jibing. We first went towards porto old town and then into the ocean. The wind was 35 knots and the ocean had big waves but the skipper was really great in his maneuver and judgement.

Jorges gave us a 5-star tour of the city which included many off the beaten path sites, restaurant recommendations and explanations of culture and history. This tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Porto!

They gave us an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge and a very kind person. The best personal guide we have had on several trips we have made

Sara was wonderful. We prioritized history, design and culture over merely sightseeing.

Really nice tour & cool guide! We totally enjoyed it!
