    This had to be one, if not THE best tours we've ever had. And we've done many around the world. Our guide, Andre Campos, was extraordinary. His knowledge, service and camaraderie were 10 stars, not just 5. His knowledge of the Douro, the wines and soil, and his personal relationship with the local wineries and restaurants made this trip extra wonderful. The countryside is magnificent, the wines and food fabulous and the friendships that developed with the 7 of us on the tour was incomparable. We strongly recommend this tour.

    Loved this tour; our guide was fabulous, and we were lucky enough to be in such a amazing group of fellow travelers! The views were spectacular, and we loved learning more about the wine history in the area form both a larger facility and a smaller one. And of course, the wine was amazing. Great activity!

    Really great experience, our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable about the ports and wines we tasted and the Douro region we visited. We had a few opportunities to take scenic photos along some roadsides, at the vineyards and on the river boat. There are also opportunities to buy the merchandise that you try, which you are going to want to do!
