    Great day. Wine tasting was at a top rated winery. Information was very good and extensive. Lunch very tasty also on a farm with subsequent tasting. Boat trip on the Douro entertaining. group homogeneous. Water was served by the guide, small sweet snack and port during the boat trip. The only complaint was that I booked German, got English, but was immediately asked if it was a problem, which I said no. A successful day.

    We were traveling with our team of 6 and David our driver. David, great driver and guide, got us through the day - with great humor, empathy and knowledge! Visit to the first winery with the port wine tasting was excellent. At the second winery, where we also had lunch, we had a lot of fun at the pool and with the old port wines. The boat ride to finish was refreshing and very fun! Overall recommended for anyone who wants to see and experience something special.
