Milena was an excellent and entertaining guide. From pick-up to drop-off she was friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. The driver, Thomas, was professional and safe. We had a lovely time learning about the history of wine making in the Douro Valley, getting to tour a vineyard and learn from local wine producers. The food surpassed expectations and we enjoyed all the local food and drinks. Unfortunately, the rain made for less than ideal boating conditions but the crew did a good job considering the circumstances. Overall, it was a great trip that we would recommend to others!

We had a great day in Duoro with our guild Paulo. It was our first time and Paulo made sure we got the most of out of our day. He as knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating with our two children.
