We took the "Amarante/Overlooks/Lunch/Cruise/One Port Winery" tour on Dec. 7, 2021 in a minivan with Joanna and a convivial group of five other people. "Juana da Loca" was funny and informative. She turned a potentially bad day (with considerable driving through heavy rain) into an excursion that was well worth it. Even the boat cruise was fun! We left at 8:30 and returned about 5:45 from the Sao Bento station in Porto. Umbrellas were provided; but (surprisingly) we rarely needed them. In return, we taught "Juanitissima" more American slang (e.g., "rubbernecking")--- which means that by the end of the day we were more than her customers, we were her friends!

I opted for this particular tour of the Douro valley with the historical tour which includes transport, visit to the vineyards, ample glasses of wine and a yummy lunch. Our tour guide was the delightful Filipe. He had great energy, great knowledge about Porto and was warmly welcoming. He made our trip to Porto very worthwhile and went above and beyond to even give us suggestions on where to eat on a sunday evening (some restaurants seem to close early as it's family day). This excursion was the highlight of my trip, my boyfriend and I loved every minute thanks to Filipe. Just remember to take extra layers with you if you visit around November time, gets a bit Chilly!

Enjoyed this trip . The minivan was spacious and comfortable. We got to try lots of wine and port and see the wineyards. Weather was lovely (we went in mid-October). Anabela was a great guide, very interesting and knowledgeable about history, and clear about timings and what was happening next on the itinerary. Food was ok at the meal. My only suggestion is that the 2nd port tasting session just before the meal had a lot of people in a small narrow area and it was really difficult to hear if you were at the back.

We booked the trip (Douro valley tour) at the office the night before, and had a great experience. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Everything about the trip the next day was great. Starting with the guide (Marina) and driver (Lucas) who were excellent. Knowledgeable, kind, helpful and welcoming. She even had some great recommendations for dinner in Porto, which we were delighted with after trying it. Thank you both!

The bus was clean and comfortable, the winery tours were informative, the staff very friendly, and the wine and port flowed freely. Lunch was great and in a great setting, with friendly staff. And the boat tour was truly enjoyable in the middle of beautiful scenery and calm river waters.

Overall, based on our experience, I'd highly recommend this tour and the company fair price for a great day trip exploring the wine region with its spectacular landscapes. Bonus if you get Marina (she's fluent in English and French).

What a great day! The Douro Valley is definitely worth a trip. This is an all day tour and worth it. Done very well with different components, you learn about the making of port, have a lovely lunch at a family owned winery, do a river cruise, and see gorgeous countryside. Pedro was our guide (in English) and he was fantastic. Knowledgeable and interesting with plenty of historical facts about the country and the region. Highly recommended!
