This enjoyable full-day tour departs from Porto and takes in the stunning Douro Valley as well as the charming countryside of Portugal.

Explore the wheat hills of the valley in the morning before making your way to the Douro river to take in the scenery of the Douro region, the first region of the world to be demarcated. The tour will continue with a visit to the small town of Pinhão, which is hidden in the middle of the valley. After that, you will take a boat cruise down the river for an hour, taking in the stunning scenery.

Before stopping for a mouthwatering lunch break, visit the historic railway station, which is famous for its 24-tile panels depicting the Douro countryside and harvest. Continue to a family-run wine estate in the stunningly remote countryside after lunch for a glimpse into the Douro way of life. Before heading back home, take in one last breathtaking view of the stunning Portuguese countryside while sampling these award-winning grapes.

The tour was very well organized. We were picked up at the hotel perfectly on time. After a short stop for a coffee it went to the first wine estate, where we could taste 2 Rosé, white and red wines. Also the olive oil and 3 kinds of honey were delicious. As an added bonus, we were able to taste 2 port wines, which was actually not foreseen, but was still heartily offered. Along the way, the very friendly guide Felipe had shared interesting information about the Douro Valley. The welcome at the winemaker was professional, but above all cordial. Then we took a boat trip of about an hour on the Douro along the vineyards. Then it went to the 2nd wine estate where we were served white and red wine for lunch and after a short tour we could taste 5 port wines. The visitors always get the opportunity to buy, but without pressure. Overall a very nice and relaxing tour well worth the money.

I didn't really know what to expect from this tour, but it was so much better than I could have imagined! The tour was so amazing, our host, Violet, was so welcoming and warm and she made the tour a really great experience! She always made sure that we were all okay and accommodated all of us. Great day, even better wine and the knowledge given was well worth every penny! It's a must!

Great tour and great guide!! My husband and I had a great time. The wineries we visited were so nice and fun, the wines were so delicious, the lunch place was delicious and beautiful, and the views the guide took us to were amazing. The small group tour was the best. The guide's talk was so fun, and we learned Portugal history, culture and economy through his talk. We just had a wonderful time, thank you so much!! Also, before the tour, the company communicated with me quickly and responded to my questions, which was very helpful.

This was an amazing tour with a wonderful guide. Our small group visited a small winery that also made olive oil where we found out about how to make olive oil and sampled their wines. A boat tour of the Duoro River was followed by a wonderful home-cooked meal at a family establishment. In the afternoon, we visited a family winery where we learned about the making of port and sampled many types of port wine. A totally satisfying day.

The tour was a lot of fun. The only real issue we had was that it was very difficult to hear the driver as we sat in the back of the van and we had three large adults in the rear seats with little leg room. Lunch was a nice restaurant with good service but the food was mediocre . The wineries were very interesting and informative and the wine and cheese is served were delicious

If you dont do this for any other reason, you do this for the scenery. I have been to Italy numerous times, and this is more magnificent. We went with a group that were not wine aficionados, but were glad they went, as the area and the history was the main event. Our guide Lola, was stellar!

Wonderful day to spend on this tour - had a lot of fun drinking, eating, and learning so much about wine, olive oil, and port production. Best part is that all the wineries are family owned businesses. Oh yeah, there's also some ridiculously good-looking views of the the Douru valley too if you're into that ;) Thank you to our amazing guide Alex - he knows the Douro region (and the roads!) like the back of his hand.

Our guide, Pedro (apologies for not knowing his name in Portuguese!) was knowledgeable, friendly, informative and good company. Even on a wet, grey day, the valley was beautiful and worth visiting. The tastings were high quality and generous, as was the typical Portuguese lunch. We would definitely recommend this tour.

I did a similar tour about a month ago and I thought it was pretty good but this one raised the bar. The guide was just amazing and full of information. She also had a great sense of humor. The winery's chosen where great and so beautiful. The lunch provided was family style at this restaurant above a fire station. There was plenty of food and wine and it was well presented.

We had an amazing day, starting with our guide Rodrigo being right on time to pick us up. There was a total of 8 people on the tour - a full van, and so much better than a large tour bus. Rodrigo provided a lot of interesting commentary on the way out to the Douro Valley. The first stop of the morning was at a beautiful little vineyard where we had a "second breakfast" (as the tour operator will tell you, eat breakfast before getting picked up because it takes about 90 minutes to get out to the valley). The "second breakfast" included a tasting of some olive oil, red and white wine, and some olives, bread and sausages. We also got to visit the vineyard's operations and cellars, which were beautiful. The views were amazing! From there, we had a short drive to a village along the river where we embarked on a boat tour. Seeing the Douro from the water was majestic! The last stop was in another village in the hills where we had an amazing meal and tastings. Great value for the money!
