This full-day adventure begins with a pick-up at your hotel (*optional). Enjoy the stunning landscapes throughout your trip: observe the green valleys, beautiful vineyards, majestic almond, and olive groves.

You have just reached your destination: the heart of the Douro Region, a set of small villages with an important role in the history of Port Wine. Learn all about Port Wine and the Douro Region History as you have the opportunity to visit 2 well-known Wine Estates.

Discover why the Alto Douro Vinhateiro Region is so much loved internationally. Uncover the most welcoming corners, breathtaking landscapes and the green and gold tones on the beautiful Douro River.

While on your guided tour, enjoy the wonderful views that the different viewpoints ("miradouros") offer you. Go along with the undulating curves of Douro Wine Region hillsides. These landscapes are so unique that this so beloved region was classified as UNESCO World Heritage.

We are facing the perfect scenario for an exquisite visit to a Winery with a Wine Tasting Experience in Pinhão, a small village that covers a large number of renowned Wine Estates. A mandatory stop on this surprising tour.

The wine is not the only one that has a good reputation in this region: the gastronomy is able to bring you “the mouth-watering factor”. As soon as lunchtime arrives, enjoy a delicious traditional meal and indulge in Portuguese gastronomy!

After this short break, there is yet another famous winery to visit. There, you will be invited to taste Porto wines, surrounded by a truly welcoming environment: the vineyards of the Douro! Have the opportunity to enjoy some of the best Douro wines.

This tour is far from finished. Having already known the wines of the Douro, it is now necessary to know more closely the landscapes that make this region a real point of reference. Expect an hour-long panoramic cruise in the waters of the Douro River. This is the best way to end your day and we promise you lovely moments!

Then, you will discover an amazing village named Provesende. Located on the top of a plateau, it offers a special view of this vineyard region! Finally, discover the history behind the beautiful tiles of the Pinhão railway station. Fall in love with these unique ceramics which tell the story of the harvest of the Douro grapes

Return comfortably to Porto, observing the beautiful landscapes between the Douro and the "Invicta" city.

Nicely organized and Tiago our guide was knowledgeable and fun!
Tracey Anne Spiteri, 25.02.2019
A very nice day trip from Porto with a lovely and knowledgeable guide Claudia. The stunning Bom Jesus Sanctuary was the highlight of Braga, though the views from the Sameiro Sanctuary were beautiful as well. Would have preferred less time at Sameiro Sanctuary and Cathedral and a little time to walk around Braga either before or after our nice lunch with wine. Guimaraes was more interesting to me with its castle and medieval streets. Would have liked to visit the palace instead of just walking by.

A very nice experience in beautiful Douro Valley. Day trip in comfortable mini van with knowledgeable guide Pedro touring and sampling at 2 wineries, a nice lunch with wine, and a lovely one hour boat ride on the Douro River.
Joyce Wicks, 15.02.2019
I wound up getting a private tour! Turns out there was a mix-up of some sort and everyone cancelled. I was the only one who wound up going. Tiago my guide showed up at my hotel at the exact time scheduled. He did a wonderful job of showing me the sites and even went out of his way to show me some different views not normally on the tour since I was the only one. Tiago even would stop randomly when I asked so I could take a few pictures. He was very knowledgeable about Porto and the area where the wine estates were. The wine estates were also good. Had good wine and a delicious meal I couldn't even eat all of. Excellent all the way around!

Thanks for a great day Miguel.

Did a day trip to the Douro wine valley with Francisco as our guide. We visited two wine farms, a boat ride down the river and all the local villages. Was the best decision we’ve made . He was great!

Just back from a historical tour guided by Anna... our first time in Portugal and we were thoroughly pleased... ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Went with Francisco to Duero Valley and loved his story telling. Loved it
Adriana Castro, 08.10.2018
It was one of the most picturesque places we have travelled to. The scenery is beautiful. Unfortunately we were on a very large bus, over 24 people on the tour, not the mini bus mentioned, nor did we stop at the train station, perhaps because of the size of our group? However it didn't really matter as we had a fantastic time with a great group of people on the tour. We stopped at Sandeman and Crofts wineries, both excellent. We received two tastings at Sandeman and three at Crofts. Lunch was relaxing and plentiful. Our tour guide was Francisco and he was marvelleous. Special thanks to our bus driver who did a fantastic job! We also loved the music on the bus, nice touch, synchronising the songs, appropriate to the venue.

My wife and I had a great experience doing the wine and river tour in the Douro Valley! Tiago, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. He not only told us some history about the region and the wineries but also answered many questions that we and the others in the group had.

I would definitely book another tour with Living Tours when I visit Portugal again.

From Toronto,

A very well designed tour. Lots of good food and excellent port and wine. Learnt heaps about the region and grape growing and wine production. The boat trip after lunch was a relaxing break before heading on to more tastings. Tour guide Christian made the tour fun but also provided lots of information both about the processes and the history of the area
Viv Newton, 24.08.2018

Paysages magnifiques, dégustations professionnelles, déjeuner dans un un resto typiquement portugais et petite croisière sur le Douro. Nuno a su nous transmettre sa passion pour le Portugal, particulièrement pour Porto sa ville Natale.

We had an amazing day on the Douro Valley Wine Tour yesterday! An exceptional experience all around with our wonderful guide Ricardo & a small group from Arizona and Germany. So fun! Thank you Living Tours.

Amazing wine tour of the Douro Valley with Nuno this week. Everything went to plan, great weather and a very friendly and informative guide - very articulate and a wonderful sense of humor! Thanks to Nuno and Living Tours for an amazing experience, would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
Richard Cherer , 24.05.2018
Had a great Douro River Valley tour with Manuel from Living Tours. He picked us up in Porto in a small van for a small group tour with 5 other travellers. Unexpectedly, we were all from the Toronto area! Manuel was terrific, conducting a well informed, relaxed pace tour that took us to two wineries, a wonderful lunch by the river in Pinhão and a lovely boat ride. Overall a wonderful day, never mind all the great Port wine we tasted and the amazing wineries we toured. Manuel is a great tour leader. Thank You!
Rafael Goldchain, 16.05.2018
The tour to the Douro and the bodegas were extremly interesting. Great service from Tiago and Nuno!! Keep it up boys!
Kuan Tai, 16.05.2018
This is just to express our thanks for the great tour we had on Sunday 13 May with our guide Andre.

The whole experience was well prepared and the visits to the vineyards well selected. The food and wine tasting was most enjoyable. It was great to have a guide in Andre who was not only helpful but full of knowledge of the area and made the trip extra special.

Many thanks again and please express our thanks to Andre.

My husband and I were part of a group of 8 who toured today with Andre of living tours. We enjoyed a fantastic day learning about Porto and the Douro Valley. We visited two completely different estates which included tours and wine and port tastings. Also included was a delicious lunch Portuguese style and a river cruise. The world heritage site of the Douro Valley is a must see. It is incredibly beautiful. Andre is very knowledgeable and passionate about this amazing area of Portugal. He made everyone feel welcome and comfortable and was able to answer all of our questions.
Thank you so much Andre for the relaxing and informative day.
