Amazing value for money & even better hosts.
Georgia_B

I’d 100% recommend this trip, the value for money is simply amazing. Picked up by Ivo and Andrea who were great tour guides!! The scenery of the drive, the wine farms, the cruise and the food - I couldn’t fault any of it. Normally booking tours like this you’d expect a fairly average meal but this was beyond expectations and so much wine!!! We ended up going out for dinner and drinks after with 5 people we met in the group. There is no possible way you could do something like this for the price offered within a day. It’s mainly port tasting but I believe you can change the port to dry wine (perhaps ask before or on the day). Really, thank you again to our amazing hosts, so cheerful and knowledgable

Great tour with Ivo and Andrei

Overall this was a wonderful trip. Our guide Ivo and driver Andrei did a fantastic job. Ivo did an excellent job managing the group and trying to make sure everyone was taken care of. The two wineries were beautiful and well organized for the group. I felt like we had the right amount of time everywhere, nothing felt rushed but I also never felt like I was just standing around waiting. I would only caution planning anything else in the evening upon return for a set time, and the tours are getting larger so I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a small group tour. The one issue we had was the tour was listed at 9 hours so after allowing about an extra hour we planned to take an evening train upon our return. Ivo and Andrei did their best to get us back on time but with the larger group we were not able to make it back in time. Ivo came back to check if we were able to change the train tickets and even checked in with me after the tour to ensure everything worked out. Thank for the spectacular tour.

Terrible. The 10hr long journey begins in a cramped mini van where we sat 3 people to a row. After a 1 .5h journey to Douro, we had to wait 40 minutes for the river boat. Once on the boat, our group was joined by multiple others so we were 20-30 people crammed on a boat and this continued during the entire day. After that was done we finally went to our first winery. We were only allowed to taste 2 ports. We then went to a restaurant where my husband had probably one of the worst meals of his life. He had a pasta that was described as "pasta with tomato sauce and asparagus". It was exactly that without any seasonings or spices and had 4-5 pieces of asparagus. I had the misfortune of ordering a fruit salad. I received 1 single kiwi. After that we went to our second winery, where again we were only allowed to sample 2 ports and we were told explicitly to keep the same glass for both tastings so even if you didn't like the first one you had to finish it to have the second one. We were not given the luxury of sitting down for the tasting and we were not offered any refreshments at either winery. I noticed that at both wineries there were smaller groups sitting down at tables, enjoying refreshments and tasting multiple ports. That was not the case for our populous group. The entire excursion lasted 10hrs and we were offered the absolute bare minimum the entire day. Pack lots of water and snacks.

Misleading. Book on a different tour.
Jessica_P
, May 2022
We were misled by the tour description for several reasons; we should’ve been on an air conditioned mini van in a small group but we were on a large full coach, we were told it would be hotel pickup and drop off but we had to walk 30 minutes to a collection point even though it clearly states it would be no more than a 5 minute walk from our hotel, the food was like a school dinner and we did not receive what was described as the examples, the boat tour was less than 30 minutes in one direction and back again, we received 4 very small tasting glasses of port in total, we did not stop after the boat tour in another village as described, we were stood or sat waiting around for long periods of time and the coach was so hot at the back that it made 2 of our party quite ill as a result. I contacted the tour operator with the above comments and they simply said, yes the listing is inaccurate and shouldn’t say a minivan or small group and they’ve contacted Viator as it’s their error, but didn’t adequately address any of my other points and refused to return any of our money. You’re best off to book a different tour and I would check the details with the operator before confirming.

Fun and highly recommended

This tour was really delightful! Pick up and drop off were both smooth and our guide Ivo was really fun and informative. He really made the long transfers fly by! You have about a 90 min drive out from Porto but the scenery is gorgeous and you get to see both a large winery and a smaller operation. The wineries both involve tours telling you about port wine production before you get to the tasting. Lunch was delicious and actually had a tasty vegan option. I would definitely recommend this tour to a friend and book it again.

The duoro valley was very beautiful to tour and we were taking care off by the tour company. We were picked up at our accommodations in Porto which made the tour convenient. Ivo, our tour guide was friendly and charismatic and he explained the history of duoro along the way. Lunch was superb. Overall a great experience.

Totally Unhappy and Buyer Beware
William_W

We missed the whole tour. I emailed you to verify the meeting point, McDonald's, in Lisbon. You directed me to the tour operator. I called and left a message. When I realized they had only contacted us through "what's app" and their message wasn't coming through, I added them on my contact list and sent them a message. They did not return the message. The only time I heard from them was at 8:44 am the morning of the tour because they were waiting for us. When I told Giselle from the tour company that we had been waiting at McDonald's, she was very curt and said that was the wrong meeting point. She then sent us the correct meeting point again at 8:44 am. The tour person at the bus was very angry and told me that we would never find parking and that all the other tour participants were yelling at her. I told her we couldn't find parking and to go on without us. I feel that the tour agency failed to have clear communication. What if a person doesn't have "what's app"? They should have also emailed or answered their phone. We would like to be considered for a refund of some type as we are no longer in Portugal and missed seeing the Douro Valley. I don't want to Yelp all of this. Thank you.
