1. Pinhão: 2-Hour Rabelo Boat Tour with Audio Guide
Navigate on a unique river, in the heart of the oldest wine demarcated region in the world and also a UNESCO world heritage site. You start from Pinhão, pass under the Eiffel iron bridge going up stream until the Tua area where you turn around and return to Pinhão. Along the way you’ll see hills of terraced vineyards until the river, with no national roads or traffic in sight. Although you do the same stretch up and down, it could very well be a different one, because seeing it in one direction and then on the other creates two completely different points of view and sights. The traditional rabelo boats have open and closed areas, so navigation can be comfortably made in all kinds of weather, all year long. Use our free app (Magnifico Douro - Passeio de Barco) to have geo-localized commentary about what you are seeing at the moment, the wine farms, the wine, the river, and much more. Do not forget to bring your phones.
