Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up in an 8-seat minivan from your accommodation in Porto. Begin your tour with a visit to the Croft Vineyards, producers of a respected brand of port wine. Learn about the entire winemaking process from your knowledgable guide. End your visit with a port wine tasting accompanied by a careful selection of Portuguese cheeses. Journey to the village of Pinhão, where you will embark on a 1-hour trip on a private company boat with delicacies onboard. Relax as you float down the calm waters of the Douro River and admire the landscape of the Douro Valley. Afterward, sit down for lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant. Choose between meat, fish, and vegetarian menus. (Your meal is included in the price of your tour.) After lunch, visit the winery of a small table wine producer. Learn about the differences between premium wines, and the techniques used to produce them during a private guided tour. End your visit with a tasting of olive oils made by the same producer. As you return to Porto, you’ll enjoy panoramic views along a scenic road.

    Amazing excursion. Very interactive and interesting. We’ve been introduced to wine and port wine making process and afterwards had opportunity to try local wines and products. Special thanks to our guide Guillermo who told us a lot of interesting facts about this region and the whole country itself. Also, we really enjoyed our small group as it gave us more personal touch with each group member. Lunch was very delicious and we’ve been breath-taken by the views during our river ride.

    My partner and I we wanted to do something nice eith his parents in Porto. Today we did the tour with Tiago and had a wonderful experience. Tiago was so attentive, friendly and saw to all our needs. We loved the guided informative tours of both the vineyards and the boat trip was so relaxing and a feast for our eyes. We then went on to our lunch stop in Sabrosa which was out of this world the food was tasty and views were spectacular. We would definetely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in a relaxing day out soaking up the best that the Duoro Valley has to offer, great views, great Porto, great wine and food. Muito obrigada!!! :

    A fantastic trip. Everything was well arranged. Although, as we had a private tour, would have preferred a boat cruise with fewer people as all the best seats on the boat had been taken with hardly any outside space for us to enjoy the scenery. The last winery where we bought wine, honey and olive oil, we were very disappointed to find that we could have purchased the same product directly off their own website at half the amount they charged us at the winery!!! Otherwise, a perfect trip. The meal was also better than we had expected on a tour. A big thankyou to Tiago, an excellent guide.
