This was a most excellent day tour from 8am until 6.30pm. an unexpected pleasure (as don't normally take tours) booked for a party of 10. Comfortable bus & friendly driver with a great song playlist (which he was happy we joined in with which we did often!), Two contrasting vineyards &tasty 3 course lunch,river cruise short&sweet and a fantastic guide Daniel who got us band of daft Irish travellers. Informative, articulate, knowledgeable, raconteur (incl jokes) who added immeasurably to the whole day. An early start got off to a perfect start with his charming smile&stop for coffee in that interesting church&beautiful village & coffee shop (for sticky bun enthusiasts like ourselves). Learnt so much about port and the heritage of the Douro valley and have told everyone!

I loved this tour for the value!!! We went to porto cruz.....and had the whole process fully explained with a tasting of 4 ports. The second place however is off the beaten track and just amazing .....small business but the best ports. And then Churchill...young but tasty and a tour of a full operating cellar....and I met Mr Tom Graham- previous owner of Grahams but now owns Churchill. The tour guide and everyone she introduced us to made such a kind effort to greet us and be incredibly hospitable and friendly. So worth the value too......amazing ports amd great variety....no 2 tasted the same.

Eventough explanations concerning the differnt port wine types have been repeat multiple times, which has eventually been a good way to keep the information in mind, we've tasted the four types from different producers. This gave me a better understanding of the differnt wine specifications. Tip: I recommend to keep a litte bit spare place in your luggage ... for buying one of those tasty ports :-)

Mariana was a fantastic guide! The tour was lovely, seeing all the bottles, casks and vats was super interesting.

Very good and nice tour. Really recomand it if you want to try portwine and learn about it.
