Stop first in Amarante, a charming 13th-century town, to tour its center and then proceed to Provesende, where medieval landmarks pose in front of striking natural landscapes. You’ll take a short guided tour and enjoy free time in each town.

In Pinhão, you’ll enjoy a 50-minute cruise on the Douro River, a sublime stretch of water bordered by vineyards, steep hills, and wineries.

Then, head to Quinta do Seixo to visit a winery responsible for producing port. Learn about the fortification processes and pleasure your palate with port samples while overlooking the Douro region’s vineyards.

Nice drive out. Declined the lunch...

Nice drive out. Declined the lunch option so had a siesta hour to kill in sleepy Pinhao: found a nice bar. Great boat ride: plenty enough time on board. Visit to the Sandeman port house was standard except you finish in a classy bar with fabulous views! Very good day out.

I thought we were going in a group...

I thought we were going in a group of 8 people, not 25. The trip left an hour late and we ended up at a winery that was included for a wine tasting. Not a great event. Too long and not great wines and guide was boring. Sorry, but the worst tour we have been on with viator. We normally like viator.

The trip was nice I got to know...
Marta K
, Aug 2017
The trip was nice I got to know pretty big about the region and the informations were passed while we were driving from time to time so it wasn't tiresome to listen and absorb. There was too little walking form me as I prefer to spent time more actively while the trip day I was sitting in the bus except whole walking part was 1 hour/ 1,5 hour in total from sitting in the boat. Yet it was very relaxing day. One thing which annoyed me and quite spoilt me the beginning of the trip was the problem which my e-ticket, as it was said I didn't need to be printed, although the machine was unable to read it and I spent half an hour at ticket office because they didn't allowed me to go unless they read the ticket code and it finished by emailing them the pdf of ticked after having weakened my phone battery by changing size of the ticked code for 30 minutes. Also it's said to be 15 min in advance while they open the office at 9 am and whole thing starts then.
