This tour was excellent way to see the Douro Valley. We visited smaller towns, saw beautiful scenery and countryside of the terraced fields and hillsides. Lunch was great and plenty of tasty food and wine. We shared a van with very nice group of fellow travelers who were from all different places and ages- about 14 people and it was very comfortable. The tour leader, Christian , was so friendly and had all kinds of information for us about the country and area. Highly recommend this way to see the Valley.
Our tour guide, Andre, was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, courteous to everyone in the group, very knowledgeable, and was great about answering our questions as well as providing us an entertaining tour. We were in Portugal for two weeks, and though my wife and I typically enjoy new places on our own, we both agreed that this was one of the best days of our trip. I would gladly book again with this company, and would encourage anyone considering this tour to do it. - John M., Oregon, USA.
This is a lovely tour of the Douro region. I know that some visitors may like the idea of renting a car and attempting to visit some of these areas on their own, but I would argue that a small tour is preferable and much more relaxing. The locations and times spent at each area were ideal.
Views were fantastic. Timing given at each stop was sufficient for us. Lunch was great. We have more than 3 mains to choose from, which exceeds my expectation. Didnt expect the restaurant to be bigger than the usual portugese ones we have been to and comfortable. We saw some stopover spots while we were driving along the beautiful views. If only we can stop by one of these for a photo shoot would be perfect.
Very good arrangement to see beautiful landscape of Douro valley and to learn the story of Port wine and how it made. Our driver/guide has good local knowledge and pleasant personality that made the trip very enjoyable.
This was the best tour we've ever been on! Our tour guide was great, and the knowledge of the local history, wine, grapes, and food was extensive. We also really enjoyed picking grapes off the vines and our lunch was excellent! Well worth taking this tour!
