Great day in the Douro valley! Writing this review because I relied on these reviews when choosing a tour and I’m so glad I did. Milena was an AWESOME tour guide!! She made a long day fun, informative and entertaining. My 19 yo son and I especially enjoyed our visit to the small family-owned winery and the lunch but honestly the whole day was great. Perfect way to see the Douro valley. Definitely hope to go back someday!

The weather was much warmer than Porto, so we were over dressed. Beautiful drive into the Douro Region, the day was well paced. Activity order was different for each group, but we stopped for coffee, walked around a small town, visited a vineyard, had lunch, went for boat cruise, and then visited the second vineyard. It was well organized, and ran very smoothly. The views were incredible. Highly recommend!

Had a fantastic tour in French of the Douro Valley with our guide, Oscar. His easy going personality and attention to details made all the difference in the world. The itinerary itself was quite loaded. In spite of that, he never hesitated to stop at unplanned points of interest. This tour was highlight of our stay in Portugal.

La gita è stata molto bella, interessante e molto divertente grazie alla nostra guida Steven! Un tour che consiglio caldamente a tutti gli amanti del vino e a chi vuole godersi un paesaggio mozzafiato.

The tour was amazing! I would highly recommend it to everyone visiting the area. Joana and Dario - the guide and bus driver - were awesome! Thy were so sweet, full of energy, and very knowledgeable.
