Take a tour to two wineries to see the stunning Douro Valley. Visit the town of Amarante for a quick tasting of regional wines at both wineries. Before embarking on a river cruise through the lush Douro Valley, enjoy a delicious lunch.

Start your tour in Porto and drive to the Douro valley to learn about the history of the area and wine. Admire the town's Church and Convent of São Gonçalo during a coffee break in the historic town of Amarante, or pick up some pastries at one of the famous pastry shops.

Continue on to a Sabrosa winery. Take a guided tour of a wine estate owned by a family. During a guided tasting, you'll learn about and taste three wines from the estate. Enjoy a lunch overlooking the vineyards while sipping red and white Douro wines.

Following lunch, drive to Pinhão, stopping for photos at the São Cristovão viewpoint. Enjoy breathtaking vistas of the Douro valley. Before setting out on a cruise at Pinhão, take a look at the point where the Pinhão River meets the Douro River.

Take a guided tour of a well-known winery in the afternoon (Quinta São Luiz with Kopke/Burmester group or Quinta da Roeda with Croft/Taylor group). Discover the vineyard's history and the techniques used to make wine.

Before returning to Porto via the N222, one of the most beautiful roads, you may try three of pretty exquisite wines.

One of the best guided tours we have been on. The tour guide, Sophia, was very knowledgeable, considerate and entertaining. Sophia’s English was excellent and her anecdotes kept us all amused. The winery tours were very good and food and wine great. The river cruise was a nice way to relax after lunch. The coach driver, Daria, was polite and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

Jorge was great. I learned so much about the different types of wines and the Douro region. We spent just enough time at each location. Lunch was delicious. I would recommend this tour to those looking to spend the day in the Douro region. Tiago was our bus driver and he was also great maneuvering the many twists and turns!

Guide Needs to be more interactive with the clients. Very little info and with the long bus ride he could have given lots of info on the area and Portugal. Never really ever knew what the next agenda was as he never gave a good overlay of what we were doing and time spent on each. Noticed a couple of the guides from other tours were very involved with their groups. Our guide acted like he didn't really wanted to be there.

A really great tour! Our guide Andre was amazing, he was so informative and nothing was too much for us- he really took care of everyone and had a great sense of humour. Our driver, Claudio, was also great and very friendly. We had 2 port wine stops throughout the day, which included tastings and information and seeing a port vineyard was lovely. The boat trip was also fantastic. We had a brilliant day. We were recommended this trip by a friend who had done it a few weeks before and were so glad we took the recommendation. A lovely day exploring the douro valley.

The guide was really informative, kept everything to time. The extra bottles of water were really appreciated having experienced a blistering 42C in the Douro Valley. Lunch was really well cooked, really appreciated this being at a vineyard. I naively thought we could explore the valley by train from Porto. Managed to book this two days before and it was by far the best way to see the Douro Valley. The town of Amarante was beautiful and sold some delicious pastries other than custards tarts!

This trip was the best thing we did visiting Porto. We learned so much from our guide, Nuno, the history of wine making going back to Roman days up until current days. Our visit to 2 wineries included a guided tour of the winery, wine tasting, and a very nice meal at one of the wineries. If you do anything, do this tour.

Beautiful experience!! Joana and Tiago have been amazing! Joana was super excited and gave us all the information needed to appreciate the treasures of the lands we were discovering. First stop, Amarante, was too quick but enough to see its beautiful bridge and small square. The 2 cellars were very nice and interesting. In the first one they produce the muscat wine. The guide was very through ! I loved seeing here what they do and the lunch offered was good quality too! After that we headed to Pinhão where we did a 1h cruise on the river. It would have been perfect if the boat was open and they didn't close us between windows which blocked air that was essential as there were almost 40 °C! This was the only downside durin all trip. Too warm and the air conditioner wasn't even enough in the minivan. The second cellar was nice too, they produce port wine and the location was stunning. Less informative than the first one but we tasted amazing wines here as well! Overall amazing day!!

We had a great guide and bus driver. Both were very sweet and knowledgeable. The trip was exactly as we expected. The only downside was the lunch food which was mediocre. Otherwise, the views, the boat ride, and the wine tasting was fun! I would recommend this to other visitors.

An excellent well planned day. Joann our tour guide did an amazing job explaining as we moved throughout the day. we visited two wineries. The first offered their tour and lunch (so much good food) and a tasting. The second tour brought us into to Vineyard, close to the grapes and a beautiful tasting.
