I loved the whole day with all the co-tourists speaking numerous languages and a most considerate driver and tour guide. Lots of fun surprises. First we had an excellent wine tasting with bread and olive oil in a beautiful winery overlooking the valley. Then we cruised in a rabelo boat in the sun, followed by an excellent family style lunch at a long table. We had many laughs with our co-tourist as the wine was plentiful. Last, we toured at Sandeman port and enjoyed the tasting there. The steep, narrow, windy road down from the Sandeman was a thrill also. thanks. tom and pat

On the whole very pleasant, an excursion which allows you to see very beautiful landscapes and to discover the Portuguese soil. The guides are very kind and attentive. The morning visit and tasting took place at the Sandman estate. Tasting of white and red port. Then we took a cruise departing from Pinhao for 1 hour and had lunch in a typical restaurant. Lunch is very copious, you are served an aperitif, 3 different typical dishes and a dessert plus table wines. Then there is a tasting of wines (white, rosé and red), olive oil and honey in the afternoon in a small family estate: D'Origem.

Convenient pick up from hotel. Taken to the exceptionally located Sandeman Port winery, river cruise, lunch, then olive oil, honey and wine tasting at Figas. The Douro Valley is such a beautiful place amd the river cruise is a must. Review lost one star as the driver just picked us up without letting us know the program of events. Also, a little confusion as to what to expect as description of events pre-booking mentioned a lunch and optional cruise, whereas it turned out to include a cruise with optional lunch. However it was a pleasant day and well worth the tour.
