What people are saying about Pinhão
I was picked up on time and greeted with a warm welcome by our tour guide / driver Luis. Luis was friendly, knowledgeable and offered to take pictures of every person in the group at key viewing spots. I've never had a guide do this for me and now I have dozens of pictures of myself in all the most beautiful settings in the Douro Valley. Our group was small (8 people) so we all got to know each other. The wineries, the owners, staff were so welcoming and fun to listen to while we explored their beautiful grounds and learned about how they create their wine and port. Lunch was in a beautiful setting and the food was a great introduction to traditional Portugese fare. The river cruise was wonderful, it was a nice break to be on the water and the view of the vineyards and olive tree orchards is gorgeous. Everyone on our tour was so impressed by the service and the quality of sites we visited. I would highly recommend booking this tour.
The wine and tasting at the first winery was delicious and the tour was very well done. It had beautiful facilities and was very relaxing to visit. We wish we could have better explanations at the second winery; they just briefly took us to the cellars and gave us wine to taste. However, the incredible lunch we ate there while we surrounded by the gardens and pool of the house made up for it. After going on this trip, we feel we received a very good introduction to the Douro valley. The boat trip was nice, but some might find an hour to not be enough time.
The tour was really good, our tour guide Sara was super friendly with perfect English. The two wineries we went to were great and the whole tour was good apart from one thing. While the non-vegetarians got either sea bass or pork, the vegetarian option was just an omelette with some vegetables and dessert was some watermelon (as the dessert had gelatin in it), hardly the same in terms of cost to make. I honestly think they should give vegetarians some sort of discount or come up with a better alternative!
Our tour to the Douro Valley couldn’t have been better. We had Ana as our tour guide and she provided an excellent experience. She had a positive attitude and was knowledgeable about the region and the port making process. The tour itself was very informative, with a stop at two vineyards. The lunch provided on the tour was great as well, as we stopped at a local restaurant that overlooked the valley below. I would highly recommend the CM Tour operator to anyone interested in visiting the Douro Valley!
We had an excellent day -- from pick up to drop off -- Delphina went above and beyond of us to have an excellent experience. The Douro Valley is a must see when in the area and this tour allows you to do that! At the second vineyard, we a truly delicious lunch in the most picturesque setting -- no one in our group wanted to leave. I highly recommend this tour!
