My husband and I had the best time with Delphina! She was very knowledgeable about everything related to Douro Valley and the car was very comfortable for the journey there. She was a great conversationalist as well, so the hour and half drive to get there felt like no time at all! We had two tastings that were incredible and lunch at a local restaurant that was so good. We finished our day with a boat ride around the valley for some spectacular and unbeatable views. Highly recommend!!

Joele was our guide for the day - couldn’t have asked for better, he was fantastic! Magnificent scenery, an abundance of quality wine and food and awesome travel companions make for a memorable day. I recommend the Douro Valley Winery tour to any wine lover - it was the best day trip I did while I was on holiday in Portugal.

Alex was a great tour guide and a an excellent driver. He answered all of our questions and we had lots of fun. I loved all the wines we tasted, especially the ones we had at breakfast. I would go again on this tour, so I recommend it.

Our guide Ivo was awesome. We highly recommend the private tour.
