    This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip! We had the best time. Luis, our guide, was amazing. He was knowledgeable, fun, and took us to vineyards that we truly enjoyed.

    Jorge was our tour guide. He was lovely and very informative. The Duoro valley is beautiful and we loved our tour of the three wineries. Lunch was delicious as well and is served in a gorgeous setting. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the port tasting as this is not usually a wine I enjoy. All in all, it was a fabulous day!

    We had an amazing day visiting wineries in the Douro Valley! Our guide, Beatriz, was fun, personable, and informative. We were stunned by the scenery and beauty, and the wineries we visited were great. We got to try many different varieties of Port and other wine. Would highly recommend this tour if you're in Porto!

    Cheers to our very personable and very informative tour guide, Antonio! The winery experiences he arranged for us were all awesome. Incredible views, terrific wines, and very warm and welcome receptions at each of the wineries. My friends and I loved this tour and I would heartily recommend it for anyone planning to visit this incredible wine country. I'm convinced that your guide's personal relationships with wineries makes all the difference!

    We had an incredible time, and would highly recommend the tour to anyone. Jorge and everyone at the wineries were very nice. The day was organised brilliantly. Thank you!

    The Guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us much insight. Luckily the weather was good during the drive and visits. The lunch was sufficient although the selection of food choices could be improved. The Wineries were all nice with proper introduction and tasting of the wines available at the winery.

    This tour was everything we imagined it to be and more! Ana, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed every stop and all of the scenery. Each tasting just got better and better with every stop! We hope to one day bring friends back to enjoy it!

    Our guide, Jorge, is very knowledgeable, attentive, humorous, and flexible. Thank you for your delightful company! It gave our group wonderful memories and a better appreciation of Portuguese culture. From the scenic drive to the lunch at Cais da Foz, the experience was like an excellent appetizer to further explore the region's culture and cuisine. Our favorite of the 3 wineries were Favaios and the Quinta Seara d'Ordens, although Quinta de Avessada also had its own flavorful uniqueness.

    I could not rate this experience enough it was amazing. Myself and my boyfriend were the only ones of the tour with our tour guide Ana, Ana made our experience exceptional and she is a credit to the company. From the tour to our lunch to her answering all our questions we could not of asked for a better guide! I would highly recommend this tour, a great day and so many different wines/ports to taste.
