What people are saying about Porto

We had a great time on this tour. We went on this tour during the off-peak season which helped us feel unrushed and able to fully experience the tour. We had 20 people on our tour. The event description is not accurate when it says you’ll be in a smaller group. There were lengthy drives (1.5 hours) at the beginning and the end of the tour but everything in between was short. Milena did a great job making sure we stopped for the toilet when we could. We were not rushed during any point of the tour and had plenty of time at each stop to take pictures, learn about the ports and wines and shop for what we liked. Lunch was very filling and included 3 entrée options (meat, fish and vegetarian), soup, dessert and never-ending table wine. Milena did a great job keeping us on schedule as well as being very knowledgeable. It’s not easy to heard a bunch of drunk adults into a van. She was friendly, outgoing and professional; everything we could have wanted in a tour guide.

Such a wonderful trip! It was pouring rain but everything was very well organized, everyone was friendly and in a good mood. Excellent tastings and a lot of interesting info about Porto and Portugal. The absolute highlight of out trip was our guide Mario, who made the trip exceed our expectations despite the awful weather!

We're not port wine drinkers but this trip was still a must do to see Duoro Valley region. Everything was very organized and our guide Paulo was very knowledgeable. W

Very good trip. Enjoyed the boat trip with lovely views. The two wineries complimented each other well. Guide provided lots of interesting facts too.

It was a great experience and our guide Catarina was amazing.
