Our guide, Joana, was the best! Absolutely the sweetest and most lovely and knowledgeable guide! She had a microphone so we could hear her clearly, lol. She was so warm and thoughtful and made sure to keep us comfortable. Engaged everyone in conversation and shared so much about each location. Made this experience so fun! Really was one of the best guides I’ve ever had! 10/10 would do any tour with her!

I am embarrassed to say I...
RIZALINA_T
, Nov 2021
I am embarrassed to say I can't remember our guide's name (due to the wine fumes I inhaled). I think it's also because we kept jokingly calling him different names. We were 4 set of different strangers, but we acted like we were all longtime friends. All because of our guide who I cannot name (so sorry). The tour was soon much fun, he is very knowledgeable, very caring and took good care of us. He got us some sweet apples and persimmons. Showed us a cork tree. We had a great time.

Wonderful day trip to the Douro Valley
Steven_Y
, Oct 2021
We were contacted the day prior to our tour to confirm our pickup time and location. Our tour guide André picked us up right on time. We had a quick stop in historic Amarante and bought a delicious pastry with a short break on the way to the Douro valley. We got to tour two wineries – Quinta do Beijo and Quinta do Tedo and got to try several kinds of Port wine at each. We even got to try some of the grapes which were sweeter than expected! We had an amazing group lunch at Rufete in Pinhão – a bacalhau (codfish) and veal dish served family style which were both delicious. There was also red and white wine, olives, bread, coffee and dessert – the panna cotta with strawberry sauce was especially delicious. We also enjoyed touring the train station with beautiful tiles in Pinhão and then had the 1-hour river cruise on the Douro River with the most amazing views. André was an amazing tour guide and we had a fun group. Highly recommend this experience with Oporto Road Trips for a day trip from Porto – experiencing the Douro Valley first-hand is not to be missed.

A Must Do Tour if Your in Porto!
Carrie_A
, Oct 2021
What an absolutely fabulous day in the Douro Valley! Our guide Sofia was friendly, informative, and very attentive to our needs throughout the day. Sofia was also very patient and engaging with our two year granddaughter. This tour is a definite “must do” if you are in the region. The vineyards we visited were wonderful and at one, let us climb inside a wine barrel…you don’t do that everyday! Lunch in the quaint village of Pinhau was very tasty and the wine was flowing. Scenic views and gorgeous vistas made for an incredible and fun family trip. Thank you Sofia…your guide skills and friendliness was the highlight of our trip to Portugal.

Douro, a must see when visiting Porto
Florence_W
, Oct 2021
We booked this trip to Douro last minute and I am glad that we did, Douro is a must see if you’re visiting Porto. The scenery was really nice, whenever the weather allowed us to witness it (we had rain n fog n a bit of sun at the end of the visit). It must be really beautiful during the summer until September. The Porto tastings were very well explained and organised, as well the olive oil testing. A special note to our driver (Sheila or Shia if I am not wrong, sorry!). She is a very good driver knowing the weather conditions and was a good n welcoming guide.

A taste of autumn sunshine
Jeremy_G

Deeanne was an excellent guide, both knowledgeable and personable. We learned about the history of Port, of the Douro Valley and enjoyed the experience of tasting. White, ruby, tawny, Late Bottled Vintage, now mean more than just labels on a bottle. A very enjoyable autumn day to bring to a close my El Camino experience.
