We had a fantastic trip with Maximo. He was a true professional and gave us a great day in the Douro Valley. First we had an excellent experience with the pickup and the quality of the vehicle we spent the day in. Maximo was one of the nicest people we met in Porto and the most knowledgeable, he knew something about everything! He had stops along the way at lovely places for both food and wine, also with a bit of history and culture mixed in.
The wine tasting spots had superb wine, port and great views. As a photographer, i really enjoyed where he took us, the views on the drive and the places we stopped were excellent. The lunch we went to was surprisingly good, being in a lovely historic home/building where there was wine making history and the nicest staff.
Maximo honestly became a good friend from the time we spent at that visit, we felt so comfortable with him and also giving space as well and always the right amount of conversation. It was a bit cold in December for the boat ride but it was still very nice, with beautiful view, some nice port tasting and the option to bring a bottle of wine on the boat! This was certainly a real highlight of our time in Portugal. Highly recommend the tour and a huge shot out to Máximo for making it fantastic.
