Great tour! Our guide Chela was great! 10 out of 10 being the great tour guide. Boat tour was very nice, first winery n olive oil tasting was perfect! The lunch provided was very simple n to be honest quite cheap - can improved. The scenery of Douro River was awesome and beautiful! Must do if you have a full day to tour and you don’t have to drive, it includes pickup n drop off!

Miguel, our guide and driver, was very prompt to pick up all tour members, and was an amiable guide. Both wineries on the tour were great, but the first winery had other visitors who seemed to be on their own tour with more tastings, and the woman at the first winery seemed to cater more to that group than to ours since their tour obviously included more tastings than ours did. The lunch was delicious and plentiful. The boat cruise was a good way to relax after lunch. The final winery’s host was fabulous. It was a very hot and long day, and if water had been provided, it would have been appreciated and welcomed. Also, some stops to take photos along the stunning roads would have been nice. I’m not quite sure why we stopped at a petrol station 30 minutes into the drive to Douro Valley. That was strange and a bit too long of a stop as there wasn’t much to do waiting at the gas station.

The wine tastings were very good and very informative. On the boat ride, one should choose to either let a human do the talking or the tape rather than the two fighting each other. The lady who drove us cannot be recommended. She had nothing informative to share and if she did, only those traveling with her understood what she said. In addition, we have never seen such a bad driver.
