What people are saying about Porto

This was the highlight of our stay in Porto. Our guide/driver met us and we joined six others for the trip inland on the minibus stopping for coffee en route. We visited the Sandeman's winery and had a wonderful tour with a knowledgeable guide followed by a tasting. Then we drive on to a place for lunch where we could converse with our fellow travellers. Then we enjoyed an hour's boat trip on the Douro to enjoy the sights of this beautiful valley. After this, we visited another winery that was smaller and produced wine, olive oil (the best I have ever tasted), and honey. Then it was the drive home! It was an excellent day and our driver was lovely, kind, and unhurried. Thank you. Highly recommend this.

Driver entertaining and chatty. Knowledgable about Portugal and the Douro valley and local knowledge (eg. Local strawberries delicious)

Helena was a great guide and knew all the best spots to visit for local bites. Super friendly and made our time in Porto super fun!

This was a great tour. Our driver and guide, Carla, was very knowledgeable and friendly and made this a very enjoyable trip.

You get to find spots of the city you wouldn’t find. Our guide was excellent and made it an experience tailored for us.
