Was a bit disappointed, not with the tour but with the transportation. It said small gruop 8 persons but we ended up in a bus with approx 25+ persons. As Covid still is present this was not what i expected. It was a bit irritating. However the tour was very nice the guide was nice an informative.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide Claudia was informative, interesting and amusing. She was always pointing out places or points of interest on our journey right to the end, making sure that we were Covid safe at all times. The hosts at the two wineries were also very informative and passionate about their product. The lunch provided was tasty and well presented with a beautiful view of the vineyards. The boat trip was a charming restful and relaxing interlude. We had a lovely day and would thoroughly recommend this tour to give you a wider appreciation of Porto and Portugal.
