This review is YEARS in the making (so long ago that Tripadvisor won't let me select the correct year)! On our trip to Porto in August 2018, we wanted to take a trip to the Douro region and found Pedro with North-on-Wheels and selected the Charm Douro tour. He organized the most INCREDIBLE experience we could have ever imagined! We still talk about this trip and what an amazing day Pedro planned for us. Before our trip even started, Pedro communicated with us about our food preferences, the best days for the tour (weather), and so much more. Our day started at 8 am with Pedro picking us up in a beautiful air-conditioned Mercedes van, which we had all to ourselves! He then took us to Amarante where we visited São Gonçalo church and the old bridge, and after, we sat down and had some local pastries and coffee with Pedro. Afterwards, we toured Favaios estate cellars and had a delicious regional lunch. We also went to the Mateus Palace for a guided tour around the estate and grounds. Our day did not end there, we had a private two-hour boat cruise down the Douro river with a tasting menu of typical Portuguese food and Douro wines, hosted by Jorge. After the boat cruise, Pedro picked us up from the marina and took us back to our hotel (over a 10+ hr day). Not only was this the most spectacular day, Pedro was a wonderful guide! Everything we did was included in the package price and Pedro organized everything. He also made sure to stop and take a lot of photos of us throughout the day, which he sent us after our trip. Thank you, Pedro (and Jorge!) for the most magnificent and memorable day!

We had such a fantastic day touring the Douro Valley and surrounding areas. Pedro was a brilliant guide - such good company, and made sure my wife and I had a brilliant trip. The choice of vineyards was excellent (Joana's in the Vinho Verde region was our favourite) and lunch was delicious. Would absolutely recommend this tour! Thanks again Pedro,hope to see you again sometime for more wine! Mark and Amy

We took the Douro Valley Tour with another couple and cannot give enough positive praise to Pedro. He made it seem like we had known him for years - very personable and professional. Very knowledgeable about the history of the area and all aspects of the tour. Excellent vehicle. Great food. The tour was worth every penny. No hesitation to give him our highest recommendation.

If you're looking to see a comprehensive amount of the Douro Valley with a knowledgeable guide, you should take this tour! Pedro was punctual, had a nice comfortable vehicle, and was an enjoyable guy to spend the day with. My siblings and I took my parents on this tour for their 50th wedding anniversary. Pedro went the extra mile to have a nice cake for them at lunch. All aspects of the tour were great, it ticked off the entire bucket list of must-sees in this region. My only slight negative is that maybe it's too many things for one day, but I slept well that night! Thank you Pedro, we enjoyed your tour!
