What people are saying about Foz do Douro

A very pleasant tour that started with a walk through Porto where our guide, who was both engaging and knowledgeable, told us about Porto's history and present. We also visited one of the port wine houses with both warehouse and shop. Our guide explained in an easy and entertaining way how port wine is made and that we also got to taste a number of wines. I highly recommend this tour.

Sid was an excellent guide, knowing how to mix history (which he knows very well), humor and a fine knowledge of port wine. The visit is complete because it allows both to know the city, to explore its small streets that make all its charm, and to finish with a rich tasting of port wine in a very charming wine cellar. Thanks Sid!

Ricardo was Excellent, enjoyed the “by the water “ tour. Was able to maneuver through the very narrow streets and go to hidden gems. Even gave us good recommendations for restaurants.

Sara was wonderful. We prioritized history, design and culture over merely sightseeing.

David was a fantastic guide! The tour with him was excellent!
