Full description
A perfect trip for wine lovers, don't miss this day trip through the region that gave us Port wine. Leave Porto and head for your first stop in your Douro Valley tour, the town of Amarante. With its traditional streets and buildings made from local granite, here you can explore unique sites and noteworthy monuments, such as the Convent and Church of São Gonçalo, and a beautiful and imposing bridge. If you prefer, you can also visit the municipal Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Museum.

Continue your trip through the city of Régua on your way to Pinhao, with a stop at a viewing point in Mesão Frio. In Régua, admire the beautiful stained glass windows of Casa do Douro - these windows illustrate the history of how barrels of wine were first transported in Rabelo boats down the Douro River.

In Pinhão, you'll see the city's famous train station, built in 1879, as well as the Douro Museum where you'll become familiar with the whole history of Port wine. Pinhão is a land of rivers, valleys, vineyards and houses climbing up the slopes, making this one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.  You will walk along the river, passing through the train station with its typical tiles and then head to a farm for a Port wine tasting - the perfect way to finish off this Port adventure.

A Perfect Day

We have really enjoyed a trip, our driver and guide all-in-one, he pick us up on time, the car was confortable for four of us. We have got everything what was described in the itinerary, we could spend as much time as we wanted on all spots which meant that we arrived back to Porto a little bit later as expected, but we didn´t mind - the sunset in Porto in June is about 9 p.m. We were thinking of a Douro trip by train&boat, but at the end we have decided for a private tour by car - it might be nice on boat, but you will miss beautiful miradores over the valley... Finally, Porto wine is perfect, we have ordered several bottles from the winery we have visited, awaiting a shipping in a few weeks :)

Worth It!!!!

A definite must if you are visiting Porto. The Douro Valley is beautiful & has many wineries. We learned a lot about the making of port wine and had an awesome lunch.

Beautiful valley & great wineries-definitely worth a visit

Delightful guide/driver Eduardo took us on a very scenic tour of the Douro stopping at both a medium sized port wine producer & a lovely small family run winery (which wasn't included but was only an additional 5 Euros each) with spectacular views. Very worthwhile & a fun day.
