The tour was the highlight of my trip to Porto – an absolutely stunning scenery and a good taste of Port wine! The tour guide, Pedro, was very helpful and made the tour very informative. I highly recommend the trip to wine-lovers and people willing to explore the area around Porto!

Leave your Porto hotel in the morning and travel inland to the Douro Valley by air-conditioned minivan. After a journey of roughly 90 minutes, you’ll arrive in Peso da Régua, the valley’s capital, where you’ll stop to soak in your first impression of the valley.
If you’ve opted to include a boat ride with your tour, you’ll be dropped off in Pinhão for a leisurely 1-hour cruise along the Douro River. Aboard a rabelo boat — a traditional cargo boat native to this region — travel up the Tua river tributary and pass by Quinta da Romaneira before returning back to Pinhão.
Alternatively, you can choose to spend time exploring the beautiful village of Pinhão independently. A highlight is the Pinhão train station, known for its pretty blue-and-white tile murals that depict the scenic Douro landscapes and vineyard workers.
Stop to enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch with specialties accompanied with local wine.Continue your tour to two family-run wine estates nestled in the gloriously remote countryside, a setting that offers a glimpse into the way of life in Douro. Learn about local winemaking as you sample various ports and wines, and then explore the shop for treats to take home with you.

This tour exceeded our expectations. The itinerary just right with the right number of breaks and for a full day. The vineyards we visited were family-owned, not the large combines, so that was very special. Our second port wine tasting was held in the owner’s living room very intimate setting and a far cry from many other tastings we have been too in other countries. But Pedro, our tour guide, was the most notable reason why we are raving about the trip. He was not only really well informed about all things related to wine, but he was a font of knowledge about Portugal. He was also careful to say when he wasn’t sure about something, and he didn’t talk non-stop, either. If I could give him a 10 rather than a 5-star rating, I would. I highly recommend this tour and ask for Pedro.
