Nice relaxing trip to the beautiful Douro. Nice guide and small group tour. Visited a small boutique port winery first which was very enjoyable. Second stop was a larger corporate place that was not so good. Had a few nice sight seeing stops on the way and the boat ride was very nice. Be warned that you try a lot of port. Port is nice but it can be a bit much in large quantities!

It was a nice tour. The lunch served with the 3 wines at the first winery was amazing! The guided tours at the two wineries were very informative and enjoyable. The only problem was the constant talking of the guide on the bus. He never stopped. Repeated himself over-and over and even told us the same facts that we heard at the wineries. Add that to two languages and ee were all tired of the constant comentary.

The Douro Valley tour was a wonderful experience. Our tour guide Paulo is the best, and the driver was very good. The boat ride on the river was very nice. We would do it again. The lunch at the private residence was so much fun, the food was good and the view was spectacular. We made some new friends from Great Britain. The staff at the wine tasting and the vineyard were very knowledgeable, loved the history of the region.
