Full description
Explore the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on a full-day, private tour from Porto. Marvel at the landscapes, learn about the region from your expert guide and savor the valley's famous wines. Meet your guide at your hotel, and then journey to the Douro Valley in your air-conditioned vehicle. Appreciate the scenery as your passionate guide explains the history and culture of the area. Stop in a small rustic village and meet the locals. Then, travel through the heart of the Douro Valley Wine Region to Pinhão, making stops to take some photos at spectacular viewpoints. Visit Pinhão and the local train station, which is decorated with hand-painted tile murals of the town and the surrounding wine region.
