Brilliant trip by Norberto! He picked us up from our hotel on time and was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Dropped us off at the start of the Paiva walkway and was there to meet us at the end to take us to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for a lovely lunch. We were then driven to Aveiro for a walk around the town (with a market) and had a nice 45 minute trip on a ‘gondola’ before making our way on to our final stop for the day, Costa Nova, with its brightly painted fishermens cottages.
We had an amazing day out in the Douro Valley. Our guide, Tiago, was very knowledgeable and great fun. We got to try lots of wines and I loved being able to see the difference between a large scale Port producer and a small, family-run winery. Also, the lunch restaurant was lovely and even able to make a good vegetarian lunch for us - something that is pretty rare in Portugal! All in all, it was a great day and all coronavirus precautions were taken.
What a lovely day my mum and I had, visiting the Valley, tasting port wine and cruising on the Douro. Our guide was very knowledgeable, kind and patient. She was just giving the right amount of informations without overflowing us. She was also very funny and an excellent driver. On top of all our nice activities, we had a fantastic lunch. I'll probably be back if weather allows in a week or so with my boyfriend. A must to do while in Portugal !
Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Great to see the landscape and scenery of the region. You experience lots of what Douro has to offer in such a small time frame. We were genuinely surprised at the amount to eat and drink through the day.
It was a wonderful trip with a good schedule. We enjoyed the two nice wineries, the lunch at a local restaurant and of course the Douro river cruise. Diana is a great guide. We really appreciated her work.
