What a lovely experience with Paulo. The best thing about this trip was that it was a small group! We went to three different wineries and had a variety of tastings. In total, I think I had wine worth more than a bottle! Some tourists had to decline some tastings because they were getting drunk, not because the wine was bad. The lunch was also good. While it was a little short of fine dining, my expectations were definitely met. Serving itself was fast and organized in a beautiful garden. Some free time here and there for photos, and Paulo went above and beyond to make everyone happy. I definitely made new friends during the tour and took many videos and photos that have made my friends and family super jealous. Given the included lunch and the amount of wine we had, the value of this trip was excellent!

as the other reviewers already mentioned, it is a very food and drink heavy walking tour. we walked what felt like 50m between the first stops. nevertheless we had a great guide and very good food from local shops. also a very small group (8pax)!

Very good tour, excellent guide, good tasteful lunch, good transport, and two nice visits at a wine tasters, with a good boot tour finish at the river

Guide Nuno was engaging and knowledgeable. Made the tour enjoyable. The weather was extremely hot but both tasting experiences were excellent.

Great to explore the region, learn something about food / drink and a nice day plan
