This trip was absolutely amazing! picked up from our apartment and taken to the beautiful mountains, where the views were incredible. We also learned a lot about the history of Porto and were shown Roman mines, and visited a picturesque village with only 12 inhabitants; it was something out of a fairytale. Ricardo was an amazing host, made us feel very comfortable and safe, and I would thoroughly recommend! :)

Fantastic. Beautiful scenery and fabulous information shared by our driver. Very prompt and efficient service, all delivered by an outstanding driver who answered all our questions. He went above and beyond by taking all photographs along the way, which was a pleasant change from having to use our own phones. Amazing trip.

GREAT !!! All was superb, Joss and his partner were great Guide/Driver, very friendly and knowledgeable. Also full of good tips on activities in the area. We all thoroughly enjoyed the ride, and we had 2 seniors 2 adults and 2 children, which in itself is proof that the hosts could entertain all. This really was the activity that topped all others during our week holiday in Porto. DO NOT MISS the vantage points over douro valley and Porto.
