Tour Details

Overview

Spend a day in Douro Valley, visiting two beautiful wineries to sample sparkling wine, Port, local wine and vinho verde a young or green wine. Called adegas, the Portuguese wine estates are as much of an attraction as the robust wine they produce steeped in history and surrounded by heart-stopping countryside. Soak up the scenery as well as the wine, and enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch, too.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Led by a local guide

Know More about this tour

Leave your central Porto hotel by luxury coach and travel inland to Douro Valley, roughly 1.5 hours away. The area is famous for its scenic landscapes, so sit back and admire the scenery, typified by remote mountains, emerald hills and UNESCO-listed hilltop villages.

Idyllic as it is, the region’s main draw is its wine not the countryside, and, luckily for you, your first stop is one of the valley’s prized adegas. Head inside Quinta do Seixo located in Cima-corgo, the heart of the Douro Valley and take a tour of its cellars. After seeing where the wines are produced, bottled and stored, sample some of the estate’s wares noting the different tones and aromas with your guide.

Move to Regua and visit a nearby local restaurant for lunch and enjoy traditional dishes that originated in Douro Valley. Savor a delicious 3-course meal, featuring fish or meat, with a glass of locally produced wine, and then hop back on board your coach.

Continue traveling deeper into Douro Valley to Quinta do Tedo – an 18th-century adega surrounded by terraced vineyards stacked into the hillside. A small producer, the estate specializes in Port, the fortified wine for which Portugal is famous. Explore the cellars, sample a glass of their gutsy Port, and then shop for a bottle to take home, if you wish.

Relax on the journey back to central Porto, finishing your tour at your hotel in the early evening.

  • This was an amazing tour. The scenery is stunning on the drive up to the Douro from Porto. The guide was excellent, enthusiastic and knowledgable. Lunch was by the water in a beautiful restaurant serving local food in generous quantity along with good local wine. We then embarked on a boat trip that showed us more of the beauty of the region. Highly recommended.

  • We really enjoyed our day in Lamego and the Douro Valley. Our guide, Pedro, made the trip wonderful. He was very personable and friendly. I am traveling with my parents, who had a lot of questions, but as my father said, Pedro was never stumped. The Valley was beautiful, too! Great day.

  • Highly recommended. Our guide Jonathan was very funny.

  • Our guide was excellent and the trip was very enjoyable.

  • liked this tour very much. Loved Porto and the Douro valley.tour guide was great, sorry don't know Portuguese yet but I think his name would translate to John in english.

  • It was an excelent day. Jonathan was a very good diver and guide. The tour description did not mention a short boat cruise on the Douro which was a nice surprise. Highly recommended!

  • This was an exceptionally good experience, to visit the wine regions in Portugal, simply breathtaking and the Port was good

  • The tour was conducted by livingtours. Excellent guide Joao, comfortable touring in an 8 seater van, good commentary and explanations, fantastic lunch included by the river side, two winery visits, a great boat trip and sufficient free time. The Douro country side is absolutely beautiful and a must visit. If there is only one trip you can make out of Porto, this is it!!

  • Our tour guide Johnathan was informative, funny, light hearted and courteous to the 8 people on the trip. The trip included a boat ride on the douro and lunch plus a stop at two wineries. It was a little pricey but in the end worth it.

  • Let me begin by saying, The Douro Valley is the most beautiful in the world. We have many areas in France, Italy, Slovenia and California to compare it to. The tour was the best we have taken with the best tour guide we have ever had. Miguel, you were awesome. We were picked up promptly and the tour started right away. He pointed out landmarks in this beautiful city.
    Throughout the tour he would ask if everything was going well and he made sure that all questions were answered no matter what the subject.
    The scenery, the small towns, history, wineries, lunch, river cruise, watching the production of Port and the tastings were wonderful. We can't say enough about Miguel and the tour. Thank you. Willard and Lorraine
