We had a very lovely experience in Douro Valley with an amazing guide André. Thanks to André we found out a lot of interesting facts not only about the region, but also about the history of Portugal. We enjoyed the program from the beginning to the end and we also met nice people along the way. Thank you.

Luis was a fabulous guide! The first winery, Quinta Do Val Moreira, had an excellent presentation and the wines were excellent. Luis kept the tour moving in an efficient manner without feeling rushed. He was knowledgeable and accommodating. The boat cruise and the lunch were good. The only downside was the second winery, D’Origem, was not very good at all! The man who took us on the tour of the winery and led the wine tasting was abrupt and short with us and moved so quickly with everything and it felt like, “get in, buy something, get out”. It was the only downside to the whole experience. Not Luis’s fault, but I would recommend finding a different winery to have as part of the tour!

This was a great day! The Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen---definitely recommend this tour. Our guide--Miguel--was really great! Miguel was a wonderful source of knowledge for both the area and the wine-making process. It was nice that the tour included the boat trip--which gave you an additional perspective of the land from the river. We visited 2 wineries where we tried wines, ports, olive oil and honey---which was a nice way to be introduced to the area. We also enjoyed a traditional Portuguese lunch in a tavern in a small village. Great day trip from Porto!
