What people are saying about Norte Region

Pietro great tour guide! Totally recommended trip to the douro valley! The drive there is really great too! Wine tasting and lunch were delicious, as was the Rabelo ride a great experience! Definitely worth it! (The first wine tasting with lunch was much better, as it was a smaller winery and a lot was explained about the differences from port wine (you could also taste the differently aged port wines), the second was quite large but also interesting. But less focus on the wine itself but rather on the system)

Our guide Filipe, it was his first day and well done. Support on time. The visits to the vineyards, the 1 hour boat trip were a very nice memory. The meal was good but frugal, the place is not good at all

Great tour! Each winery was interesting and informative, lunch was delish and tasting each wine was so much fun!! Every guide was knowledgeable and the boat tour was the cherry on top! Def recommend !

Amazing experience with a lovely guide! The food was delicious and of course the wine— would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the valley

Very nice region but maybe too much Port tasted :-)
