O excursie foarte frumoasa in care am vizitat doua podgorii, una traditionala Quinta Morroco si una moderna Quinta Corvo. Pranzul a fost excelent si s -a luat la un restaurant de 5 stele unde ospatarii au umplut paharele de cate ori se goleau. Meniul a constat dintr-o supa, felul principal la alegere intre somon cu cartofi piure sau friptura de porc cu garnitura de cartofi copti iar la desert o prajitura sau un fruct. Duoa atatea degustari si pranz a urmat o excursie de o ora pe raul Douro.

Valentim, our guide, was very knowledgeable and funny which gave the tour a nice added bonus. The bus was new and very clean. Both winery tours were well planned and ran smoothly. Lunch was better than expected. It was also hotter than you’d imagine.

Enjoyed the tour, it was well organized with a great itinerary. There was a coffee stop at a photo op by a pedestrian bridge at Peso da Regua, two wineries, the river cruise. Lunch was excellent as well. Valentim was a great guide. Highly recommend.

Well organised trip overall. The river cruise was fantastic - some key points were amazing but won’t spoil the surprise.

Our guide was excellent and very informative. Care about her clients too!
