Without doubt the best tour ever take. Our guide, Guillermo, gave us lots of interesting facts and was very friendly. The views were amazing and the vineyard tour sublime. We greatly enjoyed the boat trip on the Douro and the surprise glass of port and dried fruits perfectly complimented the occasion. The excellent meal was accompanied by copious amounts of wine. The tour then took us to a small wine producer that also produces lovely honey and olive oil. Again the view from the tasting area was amazing back up the river. A fantastic tour and an excellent guide. If you only do one tour from Porto this should be it.
We had a perfect day with Guilherme . His pick up was prompt , the information was great and the time allotted for each activity was perfect.We were not rushed but felt we had time to completely experience all the events .Visit to Quinta do Panascal was scenic and informative , the river cruise relaxing and beautiful and lunch was congenial, authentic and very good . The visit to Quinta de Val de Figuera was excellent . The harvest started the day we visited and the walk through the vineyard was excellent and very informative . The tasting that followed was superb with interaction with the owners and family and lots of information regarding the operation of the quinta and vineyard . At no time were we rushed . Great value for the time and money . We all 3 highly recommend the tour and tour guide ! Would do it again in a heartbeat !
Amazing day. Not all trips offer the cruise so take the one that does this one does -- its worth it.
Guilherme was wonderful and personable. We got enough time to experience everything and the first tasting where we could walk around the facility was such a bonus as we got to eat pluck and eat fresh grapes. Yummm!
We really enjoyed this tour, everything went very smoothly. Our tour guide was very professional in driving the mini bus and guiding the tour. We left Porto in light rain and after travelling along the motorway and going through quite a long tunnel we came out into the sunshine. We then had an enjoyable tour and port tasting on the Croft estate. This was followed by a boat trip from Pinhao. We joined other parties and travelled along the river for half an hour, then turned around and returned. It was lovely seeing the vineyards from the river. We were then taken to Rufete restaurant in Pinhoa and had an excellent meal. As a tour group we were given the choice of sea bass, pork or vegetarian. The meal was obviously enjoyed by all the party. We then went on to a small vineyard and did some wine and port tasting. From here we had superb views of the Duoro valley. A very enjoyable day.
A WONDERFUL way to see the Duoro Valley. Our driver Gee was most informative and very knowledgeable. Small group was ideal for this kind of tour. Gee took us to two tours and tastings of smaller wineries in the valley, one being on top of a mountain. The views were fabulous. Gee stated that he personally found this winery and is one of the few tours to visit it. The winery also produces olive oil and honey - both being excellent. This was our first Viator outing and based on this experience, we will be looking into other possibilities. This tour is an absolute must if you are going to see the beautiful Douro Valley.
Guilherme was a great guide. Very friendly, and prompt to pick us up in the location we requested. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and the tour itself was amazing! A great introduction to the history of port wine as well as an authentic Portugese lunch and the most picturesque views all day long. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody.
