Sandro our guide was awesome! Super friendly and attentive. The wineries were amazing. Only thing I would do differently is go to the smaller family winery second and the larger one first. Also this is not a cruis up the river to the winery. Its a car trip then an hour river cruise.

Diana was our tour guide, she was excellent. She was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, she read the group well, meaning if people were ready to move on, we moved on. The balance between the two wineries was perfect, one educational tour on port and another small boutique winery. Lunch was amazing, traditional Portuguese cuisine in a family run establishment, more food than you could eat. We ended the day with an hour boat down the river, I wasn’t overly excited, but it ended up being beautiful. Overall, I highly recommend this tour, well planned and worth the drive to see this beautiful part of Portugal.

We enjoyed the Douro wine Tour very much as well as the river cruise. As it was specified in the Tour offering - the group was small, the van comfortable for 8 people, the selection of the two wineries very good. Both places had amazing views of the Douro valley and excellent products to taste. Our guide drove smoothly on the many curves so that we all felt safe and comfortable. Henrique was a great host and guide! Very friendly, managing us as a group very patiently and still balancing the schedule very well without making us feeling stressed. He is knowledgeable about Portugal’s culture and traditions and was ready to answer all our many questions about life in Portugal. After the day we spent together it felt we travelled with a good friend. We would strongly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to discover the beauty of the Douro Valley and wineries. Specially if guided by Henrique :)
