What people are saying about Viseu District

Excellent time spent in this area, visit of the cellars and explanation of traditional production. And to finish with a very pleasant tasting of the different wines produced. They also do guest house. It is also possible to crush the grapes traditionally (with the feet) during the summer season.

The boat was on time and was clean and comfortable. Our guide Paulo was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. He was generous with the port wine and even gave us home made cookies. I highly recommend this tour.
