What people are saying about Porto

Fun tour, beautiful views, friendly guide

This tour is probably the best tour we've done and funnest thing we've done in Portugal. All thanks to our very friendly and knowledgeable guide, Sophia, and the beautiful views/ drive. The port wines were tasty, but I would not say excellent. The pink port wine is tasty & interesting because it's not sold in the USA. The river cruise is scenic, but you're on a large, powered boat, not a small, hand-rowed boat as the description/ photos imply. Lunch was ok and drinks were provided. I felt cheated because the description stated 2 wineries, but instead we went to 1 winery and 1 olive oil ranch. We had 4 good tastings at the winery and 2 poor tastings at the olive oil ranch - the grape juice they provided tasted better than those 2 ports :-/ But Sophia's friendliness and knowledge made up for the one less winery. She explained many interesting facts with historical & scientific background. It was very easy to have a conversation with her. Sophia is a true professional guide.

Great wine and port, spectacular scenery, and a helpful tour guide.

After an on-time hotel pickup and 1.5 hour drive, we came to the first winery. We had an entertaining tour and tried a variety of delicious wines and especially delicious ports. After that was a cruise at a leisurely pace up the Douro River and back. We followed up with a nice, relaxed, “traditional” Portuguese lunch including cod and pork. The last stop was another winery/olive oilery with history, tastings, and an award-winning view. The tour was about 9.5 hours from hotel pick up to drop off. Our tour guide was great and provided lots of commentary during the driving portions. Overall a great experience. Happy we did it and well worth the money!

Great way to see the city with a small child

This trip was really good value, the man in the office was super friendly and told us about a lovely little restaurant in the museum across the road (We had lunch here before the tour - highly recommend). The train ride was fine, much more comfortable than I thought it would be after reading the reviews. The wine cellar tour was interesting and not too long for our daughter - the tasters were a nice touch . The boat trip was lovely. Do arrive early for the boat trip, we did as advised by previous reviews and there was already a queue. The boat also left 20 minutes earlier than departure time. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic way to see Porto & Gaia highlights

Blue Dragon tours, specifically Diana our guide, was fantastic! The company was well organized and provided very nice ebike equipment. Diana was friendly, calm and patient with our family of 4, always checking to make sure we were doing well and safe in traffic. The 3hr mid-morning ride starting at 10am was perfect since we didn’t have to wake up too early with teenagers and the streets weren’t as crowded. Highly recommend this outfit and don’t forget to ask for Diana!

Great balance: nature, activities, learning

My daughter and I had an awesome day in the nature reserve. We got to see two totally different areas of the park, had a very nice hike to a waterfall, learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Very pleasant. One day later we got a photo documentation about our trip. This is all thanks to our guide Pedro, who is very nice person and very knowledgeable about the area; he even showed us which “steps” to take when climbing down to the waterfall.
