What to Expect
Tour the beautiful Douro Valley and the charming Portuguese countryside on this relaxing full-day tour from Porto.
Spend the morning exploring the wheat hills of Mesão Frio, then continue towards the Douro river and the town of Régua, the capital of the Douro region and the center of the first demarcated region of the world. Continue the tour with a visit to the small town of Pinhão, hidden in the heart of the valley, and then embark on an hour-long boat cruise (optional) down the river, enjoying views of the magnificent landscape.
Pay a visit to the historical railway station, well known for its 24-tile panels portraying the Douro countryside and harvest, before stopping for a delicious lunch break in a traditional restaurant.
