Before exploring the stunning Douro Valley, take advantage of the convenience of being picked up in a minivan with eight seats from your Porto hotel. Before taking a river cruise down the Douro River, stop by local wineries, sample wines and local delicacies, and learn about the winemaking process.

Visit the Croft Vineyards to begin your tour and hear from your guide about the entire winemaking process. Your visit will come to an end with a tasting of port wine and a carefully selected selection of Portuguese cheeses.

After that, head toward the village of Pinhão, where you'll take a one-hour boat ride. Relax and take in the valley's scenery as you float along the tranquil Douro River. After that, eat lunch at a typical Portuguese eatery. Vegetarian, fish, and meat options are available.

Visit the winery of a small producer of table wine after lunch. During a private guided tour, you'll learn about the differences between premium wines and the methods used to make them. Enjoy a tasting of olive oils produced by the same company to conclude your visit. Along a picturesque road, you'll have panoramic views as you return to Porto.

This was a nice day. I enjoy the small group experience. Our guide knew a lot about the area and was a pleasure to talk with. My only wish was that the boat ride had been a smaller boat with less people and it would have been nice not to have windows. The lunch was great and the tastings were so much fun.

Four of us took the tour on October 15, 2021 through the Douro Valley. We met two other couples who were in our van on the same tour and we had a tremendous day together. Our guide was Patricia and she was absolutely amazing. Her English is impeccable and she is very informative and entertaining. It was a perfect mix of wineries, the lunch was excellent, the boat cruise was lovely and the views were fantastic. Two of us have spent lots of time both in Portugal and also in the Douro Valley. We...

The company contacted me the day before, picked me up from the hotel. Clear explanation of the day's program, and all happened as expected. Nice group of travellers (7). A good route and excellent speakers at each venue. The guide Guillermo was easy to follow, but knew when to stop talking, and he was interested in the passengers. I had a lovely day, as a solo traveller.

This winery tour of the Douro Valley was MUCH better than expected. Our guide, Hugo, was very informative, caring, and navigated the tricky roads with ease. The whole experience was planned to provide education and enjoyment for all. We walked into a vineyard and learned about the grape vines and varieties, explored vintage grape stomping and processing rooms, and tasted amazing varieties. Lunch was prepared in the most beautiful and idyllic setting. You will not regret booking this tour. Tha...

We loved our tour. Our guide Tiago was great! He explained us many facts and curiosities about the region. The visit to the first wine yard was beautiful! The views were just stunning and the Porto wine delicious. Gorgeous and interesting at the same time. Lunch was great too, with a wonderful view. We didn’t like the last vineyard as much and my opinion this should be changed. There were no views or opportunity to walk through the vineyards. It was not interesting as the other one and guide ...

I would highly recommend booking. Our guide Patricia from Portugal Excellence Tours was awesome and very knowledgeable about Porto and the wine industry but also Portugal as a whole. She went out her way to make us feel comfortable and to alleviate our concerns as we where traveling during Covid.

Great daytrip to enjoy the Douro scenery -- the tour on the port estate could've been a bit more informative but, our guide for the day was our walking encyclopedia so compensated a lot. The boat trip was nice and the lunch was great. The wines tasting also excellent. The trip in the van is a bit heavy on the stomach but thats the cost of exploration. Great value for money.
