One of the best guided tours we have been on. The tour guide, Sophia, was very knowledgeable, considerate and entertaining. Sophia’s English was excellent and her anecdotes kept us all amused. The winery tours were very good and food and wine great. The river cruise was a nice way to relax after lunch. The coach driver, Daria, was polite and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

It was a well organized and fun day trip. This is really a must do when you are in Porto. I did find it a pity that not much was told during the trip. The highlights were of course highlighted and you at least had the opportunity to ask a question at any time, which could then be answered in detail by our guide! In addition, the visit to the village on the way there was a bit unnecessary. Then my partner and I would have preferred to be on the boat a little longer or maybe there would be more time left for the lunch part! However, I also understand that they make that stopover because then the longer outward journey seems less long. At the second tasting we got 2 wines and 1 port (we had hoped for only port haha!) but that as a small side note. All in all, I really enjoyed it and I definitely recommend it!

Excellent organisation, group was not too big, 25, minibus, Silvinho was driving like Carlos Sainz senior, not only because he stopped at Repsol, and Thiago was making a good atmosphere between the group keeping us awake with his jokes, wuips and subquestions. We’ve tried some divine taste wines, lunch was very good, we could make a pictures of a wonderful Douro Valley native and landscapes. River cruise didn’t took us too much time… Thiago gave us advices for other things to do in Porto, tips and hints… We’ve learned a lot abot Portugal and this region of a country. That was absolutely value for money experience!
