Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up in an 8-seat minivan from your accommodation in Porto. Begin your tour with a visit to the Croft Vineyards, producers of a respected brand of port wine. Learn about the entire winemaking process from your knowledgable guide. End your visit with a port wine tasting accompanied by a careful selection of Portuguese cheeses.

Journey to the village of Pinhão, where you will embark on a 1-hour trip on a private company boat with delicacies onboard. Relax as you float down the calm waters of the Douro River and admire the landscape of the Douro Valley.

Afterward, sit down for lunch in a typical Portuguese restaurant. Choose between meat, fish, and vegetarian menus. (Your meal is included in the price of your tour.)

After lunch, visit the winery of a small table wine producer. Learn about the differences between premium wines, and the techniques used to produce them during a private guided tour. End your visit with a tasting of olive oils made by the same producer.

As you return to Porto, you’ll enjoy panoramic views along a scenic road.

Great adventures to the Douro Valley. The guide was excellent and knowledgeable and we had a great trip with good company. The only downside was that the port we tried at the first winery wasn’t available to purchase, although it was the best I’ve had yet. The meal wasn’t anything extraordinary, but definitely did the job to get some food into us. The river cruise was a definite must! Was a busy day but worth every dollar.

Everything about this tour was great! They picked me up at my hotel around 8:30am (confirming the day before). We went to a winery with beautiful views first, then a 1 hour boat ride (which was great) with more wine, lunch that was included (plenty of food AND wine!), on to a stunning viewpoint, then on to a second winery before heading back to Porto. It was a fantastic day! Our guide was awesome too!

Our guide was very friendly and infectious with his stories. The places visited are very beautiful, as well as the restaurant, very cozy. The boat ride is 1 hour, it could be a little longer, (with explanations about the place) but maybe not this time to see any other attraction.
