The guide was really informative, kept everything to time. The extra bottles of water were really appreciated having experienced a blistering 42C in the Douro Valley. Lunch was really well cooked, really appreciated this being at a vineyard. I naively thought we could explore the valley by train from Porto. Managed to book this two days before and it was by far the best way to see the Douro Valley. The town of Amarante was beautiful and sold some delicious pastries other than custards tarts!

An excellent well planned day. Joann our tour guide did an amazing job explaining as we moved throughout the day. we visited two wineries. The first offered their tour and lunch (so much good food) and a tasting. The second tour brought us into to Vineyard, close to the grapes and a beautiful tasting.

One of the best guided tours we have been on. The tour guide, Sophia, was very knowledgeable, considerate and entertaining. Sophia’s English was excellent and her anecdotes kept us all amused. The winery tours were very good and food and wine great. The river cruise was a nice way to relax after lunch. The coach driver, Daria, was polite and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.
