Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up in an 8-seat minivan from your accommodation in Porto. Begin your tour with a visit to the Croft Vineyards, producers of a respected brand of port wine. Learn about the entire winemaking process from your knowledgable guide. End your visit with a port wine tasting accompanied by a careful selection of Portuguese cheeses. Journey to the village of Pinhão, where you will embark on a 1-hour trip on a private company boat with delicacies onboard. Relax as you float down the calm waters of the Douro River and admire the landscape of the Douro Valley. Afterward, sit down for lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant. Choose between meat, fish, and vegetarian menus. (Your meal is included in the price of your tour.) After lunch, visit the winery of a small table wine producer. Learn about the differences between premium wines, and the techniques used to produce them during a private guided tour. End your visit with a tasting of olive oils made by the same producer. As you return to Porto, you’ll enjoy panoramic views along a scenic road.

We had an amazing day out in the Douro Valley. Our guide, Tiago, was very knowledgeable and great fun. We got to try lots of wines and I loved being able to see the difference between a large scale Port producer and a small, family-run winery. Also, the lunch restaurant was lovely and even able to make a good vegetarian lunch for us - something that is pretty rare in Portugal! All in all, it was a great day and all coronavirus precautions were taken.

We enjoyed our tour to the Douro Valley a lot! For the COVID situation, the minivan of capacity of 8 people had only 4 guests. The travel protocols were maintained throughout. The tour itself was great and diverse. The journey from Porto to Douro valley was smooth, we stopped for breakfast on the way. Our guide was very friendly and was explaining different aspects and history of the places. The wine tasting experience, the boat trip, and the lunch were great too. Would highly recommend if you want to experience a good chunk of what the Douro valley has to offer in only a day. :)

Guilherme was extremely nice and open. During the whole trip to the Douro Valley he explained us so many things about the region, it’s developments - and even the roads and other infrastructures. Very informative! Both visits to the Quintas were very pleasant, I especially loved the olive oil tasting at the second location. Lunch was tasty and rich and the view just breathtaking. At the end one of my friends forgot his glasses in the car. We didn’t even notice it but about 30 min later I got a call from Guilherme saying he was on his way back to bring us the glasses. We were extremely thankful! All in all this trip is awesome and (in my opinion) worth much more than the stated price.
