    Excellent full day out, well thought our itinerary & brilliant guide. One tasting experience at a small vineyard, excellent wines & informative staff, one at a very small family vineyard - also tasted their home cured olives, tapenade, jam etc - fabulous family. Village lunch was just perfect & boat journey was an added dimension to exploring the Douro Valley. Only reason I have not given 5 * is that there was confusion regarding meeting up - 4 of us waited as directed outside a shop for 30 mins, whilst the rest of the group were at the agent's offices having coffee!! This needs to be sorted as took a while to work out what the delay was........

    We had a great day in the Douro Valley on Monday June 6th. We were a very nice little group of 7 people and our young guide Francisco was just perfect. Francisco is friendly, outgoing, knows the Douro Valley very well (his family is from there) and his level of English is impressive. With my husband we ended up on this tour in English (despite that we had booked a tour in French), but we do not regret it. Francisco also has a good level of French. Thank you Francisco for this beautiful day. Patrizia and Ivan

    Really nice day out - we had a lovely small group of 7 people in total (including us), and we really enjoyed the boat tour, as well as the 2 very different vineyard experiences. Our guide Thiago was very nice and informative, and adjusted the trip to a really good rhythm of the group.
