Expectations: quaint tour with our group of 15, walking around, getting to know the valley and learning about its history Reality: you sit packed in a minibus with 15 other people for 8 of the 11 hours of the day. Majority of the views are through the window. You get lumped together with 2-5 other tour groups for all the activities, including the mediocre mass-produced lunch, the very brief winery tour, and very rushed wine tasting, and the waste of time “boat tour” where no one can see anything because we are all crammed into this boat with closed windows and no fresh air. This tour felt like a cheap and fast way to say “I’ve been to Douro, what’s next?” We did not feel like we learned much or had a personal experience at all. Also the stop in that small town at the beginning was a waste of time. Not at all interesting Pros: Probably the most convenient and cost effective way for you to see Douro. Guide and driver were kind and professional Cons: You will be sitting in the minibus for the vast majority of the day. All the time off the bus will be in a massive group of up to 60 people and you won’t hear the tour and won’t see much. Lunch is meh you might as well buy your own.

Great way to experience the Douro Valley on a day trip
Jana_H

We really enjoyed the tour. The stop at the charming town of Amaranth was a nice break. The views on the drive and lunch overlooking the Douro Valley was enjoyable. The riverboat ride was just enough. The winery tour was the most disappointing part of this tour. Had to wait to get in, the winery tour group was too large to hear what was said, low quality of sampling. Only one port included.

Slow chill winery day

Tour guide Daniel was awesome and very knowledgeable and kind. Definitely helped carry the trip. The tour plan wasn’t I think the best. Amarante is a miss. It’s really a breakfast stop and not a cute little town which I was expecting. I would have preferred another cute little historic town. The look out was lovely and we were able to stretch our legs for a few minute walk to the restaurant (or we could have been driven). The view from the restaurant is fantastic the food was plentiful and the wine and water was as much as you wanted but food was meh. Fine but not outstanding. Very accommodating thought for dairy allergies which was appreciated. The boat tour in Pinhao was also fine but not exciting. Very pretty to see the vineyards but slightly boring. Would have liked some time maybe to see the town as well. The winery estate we had the tasting at was gorgeous with the wisteria all in bloom cascading down on the terrace. Beautiful grounds and a nice tour and three ports to taste. It was a nice chill relaxing tour but if you only have a little time in porto and don’t care about seeing a lot or want a more chill day this may or may not be for you.

Fantastic experience! This tour is a wonderful, and easy, way to explore the beautiful Douro Valley. Joana is an exceptional guide. She exuded energy, enthusiasm, and genuine passion for sharing with visitors the gem that is Porto and the Douro Valley. Joana effortlessly conducted the tour in both English and Spanish, as we enjoyed a comfortable ride to each stop, with a delicious lunch along the way. The port tasting and boat ride were an awesome way to end the tour. This tour is worth every penny but the best part was having a guide like Joana. She truly loves her job and it made this experience all the better. Enjoy!

Sadly I had a bad spasm shortly into the day but the staff were so helpful, enabling me to lie down on the back seats, finding another customer with some painkillers and making sure I had a packed lunch when the group went for lunch. The guide Marina(?) and driver Lucas really were so kind. Thank you. My partner enjoyed the trip a lot more! Stunning scenery.
