Douro Valley and Port Tasting
Michelle_H

Great tour! It's a long-ish drive, but you stop not long after getting on the highway at the village of Amarante, which is beautiful. You can walk around, use the washroom, do some quick shopping, or grab a snack. Our guide shared lots of information about the area, the land, and how grapes for port grow in this one special area. There are some beautiful viewpoints. Portugal was in a heat wave when I was there and it was hot!! Also, the wildfires in certain places meant the views weren't always as clear as they could be. The lunch stop was very enjoyable. The port winery tour was interesting and the tasting was a highlight. Due to the heat, the outdoor portion of the visit wasn't too long. On a milder day, I would have liked to stay outside longer, but they made it short since it was 46 degrees or something that day. You get to try three different kinds of port. It was fun to try them and compare. The final stop was a boat ride on the Douro River, which was disappointing. It was packed on the boat, so you couldn't really move around at all. The boat very slowly went up the river a bit and then turned around and came back. There was no commentary and we basically just saw the same scenery we had seen from the bus. I think that stop could be eliminated (as it's a long day) and the remainder of the tour would be great.

Words cannot describe the beauty of the landscape and the excellence of the wines tasted. Thanks to our guide Joana it was really fun too, since she always knew how to never have as experience a dull moment. The meal was somewhat run-of -the- mill, though the wine from local producers was outstandig, as where also those included in the wine tasting during our visit to the estate of St. Luiz, where we also enjoyed a very informative tour by local guide Michel. Highly recommended.

This tour was really good. Selverin drove the mini-bus. Arabella did the tour in English & French. She loves to share her knowledge of Douro valley and winemaking. She kept watching that everyone was comfortable and gladly helped with group photos. We hope she continues to do this tour for many years

We thoroughly enjoyed this great little day trip. After clomping around Spain and Portugal for 10 days it was nice to have a day where someone made all the decisions and took care of everything. We saw beautiful scenery, enjoyed a delicious lunch, toured a winery, took a boat ride, learned a little bit about the regions’ history and met some nice people. Did I mention the beautiful scenery? Our tour guide Christian was interesting, funny, and kind and took good care of us. Driver Josè kept us on time and the ride was smooth. A day we’ll spent and a good value

Poor value for money overall. Inferior wine at the tasting, no description or samples for comparison or education
Lynda_S
, Jun 2022
Our guide Jorge and driver Elizabeth were good. The day was long. Unnecessary time over a very average lunch. But nice views of the valley and Douro. The wine tasting was poor quality sadly and the winery guide was so quiet nobody could here his talk. The boat trip was over crowded. There was no commentary or wine to sample and one toilet for over 100 people. It ticked a box but not well enough. Poor value for money. An expensive day out.

There was a lot of travel with a few stop off points. The scenery was amazing. The guide and driver were very good. We had mixed feelings about the meal, and the winery was not really worth a stop. Overall we'd a good day, but it was long and tiring, and there is a lot to do in Porto.

Expectations: quaint tour with our group of 15, walking around, getting to know the valley and learning about its history Reality: you sit packed in a minibus with 15 other people for 8 of the 11 hours of the day. Majority of the views are through the window. You get lumped together with 2-5 other tour groups for all the activities, including the mediocre mass-produced lunch, the very brief winery tour, and very rushed wine tasting, and the waste of time “boat tour” where no one can see anything because we are all crammed into this boat with closed windows and no fresh air. This tour felt like a cheap and fast way to say “I’ve been to Douro, what’s next?” We did not feel like we learned much or had a personal experience at all. Also the stop in that small town at the beginning was a waste of time. Not at all interesting Pros: Probably the most convenient and cost effective way for you to see Douro. Guide and driver were kind and professional Cons: You will be sitting in the minibus for the vast majority of the day. All the time off the bus will be in a massive group of up to 60 people and you won’t hear the tour and won’t see much. Lunch is meh you might as well buy your own.

Great way to experience the Douro Valley on a day trip
Jana_H

We really enjoyed the tour. The stop at the charming town of Amaranth was a nice break. The views on the drive and lunch overlooking the Douro Valley was enjoyable. The riverboat ride was just enough. The winery tour was the most disappointing part of this tour. Had to wait to get in, the winery tour group was too large to hear what was said, low quality of sampling. Only one port included.
