    We had a lovely day in the Duoro Valley. We were lucky to have some sine and no rain. The driver was very knowledgeable and happy to share information. Both tastings were a pleasure.

    Fabulous day in the Douro Valley. The choice of vineyards was perfect and the lunch delicious, generous and local. The best part was our guide, Lisa. A lovely, friendly, very interesting and intelligent guide who clearly loves her work. This was one of the nicest days we’ve ever had on vacation

    Honestly speaking, it is an excellent experience to visit the Douro Valley and the Guide was doing well during the trip except his driving attitude. If he didn't drive over the speed limit the trip was perfect. The view is very wonderful after the raining. The visit to the port wine cellar was great. The best port I have ever tried. Price is very reasonable.

    Bruno was our guide and did a fantastic job showing us the Douro Valley. We loved the two small production wineries, the views were breathtaking...and we even got a few added stops on the tour including a gorgeous historic train station and a coffee shop for a pick me up. Bruno was knowledgeable about Porto and the rich history of this region. We highly recommend this tour.

    Brono was an excellent tour guide. He picked us up on time and took us on an amazing trip to the Douro Valley. His knowledge of the area was outstanding and made it a fun day. The weather has been bad with flooding but the company had made changes to make sure that we could get the best tour available.
