Full description
The Douro Valley makes a dramatic first impression. With its rolling green hills, a mighty river and lush vineyards and olive groves, it’s hard to imagine a better backdrop for sipping fine ports and table wines. Go wine tasting amid the vineyard-clad hills of the Douro Valley, a World Heritage–listed region famous for its port wine production. Feast on regional specialties with a traditional lunch and visit two wine estates for an introduction to award-winning local varietals.

    Great experience, it was great being driven around by Oscar who would tell us many aspects of the region. Great to visit a big wine producer and a family one, tour on the boat. Lunch was great with a lot of wine! I am coeliac and need gluten free food, the restaurant was able to provide this with no problem (including a really good gf bread), I would only suggest CM Tours to improve their communication on this aspect. People with allergies and intolerances are usually very anxious with food (most of us have had bad experiences elsewhere) so it's good to have some reassurance that you know what you're talking about. For bonus points, I would also speak with the wine producers to offer gf bread when they offer wheat bread to others but that's probably asking too much. Another thing is I expected the tour to be just the 4 of us (plus guide) as it says you offer tours to 4 people, maybe make it clearer on your website. The other family was nice so we liked sharing the day with them anyway.

    Mom Mia what day we got. Was picked up at our hotel and got to experience two wineries which were very nice to visit. Eight three course lunch under cool trees with good wine. Also, a boat trip on the beautiful Douro River with a glass (or two) of port wine. Got so much entertainment and interesting history this whole day. Super satisfied! Our guide Pedro amused and informed us perfectly. In addition, he drove calmly and stopped often so we could foot the wonderful views.

    We booked this tour because we were staying near Peso da Regua and thought that the tour started from there at 9am. An email was sent the night before at 10.20pm saying the pick up would be at 10.15am. I spoke to the guide at about 9am and he said they would be late because they were stuck in traffic in Porto. We were finally picked up at 11.25am. After that, the tour was good and so was the tour guide who was very apologetic about the delay.
