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!
Unlike other cruises that promise 50 min and only deliver 30 min of trip, this one was simply gorgeous. I loved every explanation given in 4 different languages and also the wonderful views. At the beginning of the trip they promise that the views from the boat are unlike any other view, and it's 100% true. Thank you for a fantastic experience.
A wonderful, informative trip with some fabulous ports. The boat trip was a highlight. Autumn really was an amazing time to go, as all the vineyards were full of colour, but we were very lucky with the weather!
Absolutely brilliant experience, we had amazing weather which helped. BBduoro were fantastic hosts providing a bluetooth speaker, refreshments, and taking photographs of our group.
You get on the boat, which sails for 45 minutes while describing the sights in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish. Very pleasant.
