A super nice day

Was a very nice, eventful and informative day. Guide Pedro went to a lot of trouble, also regarding the language, as my English is not the best, we visited very nice places and places that I would never have come to, and the picnic with wine and Portuguese snacks was also very nice , especially the location. I can only recommend it.

Very nice visit and good tasting

Not only did the tour show a very beautiful landscape but in addition, the guide gave us complete explanations on the region and on Porto. At noon, our guide offered us a typical picnic. Then, we were treated to a visit to a vineyard with a tasting in a private space ... Too much class !!! It was perfect...

very good itinerary

the itinerary was well selected our guide, John, made the biggest efforts to make us satisfied. I HAVE 2 COMPLAINTS. The first one improve the A.C. system in the car. taking off the roof is not enough on hot days, and the weather in the valley is very hot most of the year. We had 37 Celcius in June. Second, if you promise a picnic in my imaginations it is not a paper box with 4 samples of deep-fried dough filled with meat sauce or cod fish. Cold fried dough that was made in the morning is very NOT TASTY at noon, especially on a very hot day. if this is typical as a Portuguese picnic as our guide answered our question then please explain in the tour description what the picnic includes.Except the remarks made I will recommend the tour.
