Perfect tour with Patricia ! This is the second Tour I do from Porto with Excellence Tour. My mum and I literally enjoyed everything. This half a day tour is really well-organised : we were picked up from our hotel, Patricia is a safe driver and a very enthusiast woman. She knows everything there is to know about Portugal and her joy is contagious. She knows how to keep you interested and makes you want to discover more. Now, as for the tour, we stopped by the ocean near a lighthouse, saw the beautiful and picturesque houses from Barra, had a coffee and sweet in Aveiro and enjoyed a lovely boat ride on the canal. PERFECT day ! I saw this tour had absolutely no review but I don't get why, I'll keep on booking tour through Excellence Tour. Thank you so much for everything, we will be going back home with amazing memories ! Many thanks ! :)
This was a most excellent day tour from 8am until 6.30pm. an unexpected pleasure (as don't normally take tours) booked for a party of 10. Comfortable bus & friendly driver with a great song playlist (which he was happy we joined in with which we did often!), Two contrasting vineyards &tasty 3 course lunch,river cruise short&sweet and a fantastic guide Daniel who got us band of daft Irish travellers. Informative, articulate, knowledgeable, raconteur (incl jokes) who added immeasurably to the whole day. An early start got off to a perfect start with his charming smile&stop for coffee in that interesting church&beautiful village & coffee shop (for sticky bun enthusiasts like ourselves). Learnt so much about port and the heritage of the Douro valley and have told everyone!
This experience was short and sweet. The staff at the venue spoke English very well and were very accommodating to me as a pregnant guest. They provided me with juice whilst everyone else had Port, which was a nice gesture. The tour guide gave a clear and concise explanation about the Ports they manufactured and the process behind it. The Fado Show was good but it would’ve been just as good with only 3-4 songs. Then there would’ve been time to have an explanation on the Ports they provided for tastings. Also it would’ve been nice to have cheese or olives with the crackers at the tasting.
Unlike other cruises that promise 50 min and only deliver 30 min of trip, this one was simply gorgeous. I loved every explanation given in 4 different languages and also the wonderful views. At the beginning of the trip they promise that the views from the boat are unlike any other view, and it's 100% true. Thank you for a fantastic experience.
The guide of the wine cellar tour was good. We learnt a lot about the port wine, and its difference from the regular wine. We enjoyed the fado performance a lot. The music and songs were so touching. It is so enjoyably to listen to the music while we were served with port wine, which tasted so good.
