Harvest program with Living Tours
I already knew that several wineries in the Douro allowed tourists to participate in the harvest so I went to Porto in September to research this. Living Tours offered me a 5% discount on this tour and it was the experience I was really looking for. I recommend it.

no words
I took this cruise in September because it is the harvest season in the Douro and I have no words to express how much I enjoyed this experience. Participating in the harvests was very special for me because it was something I wanted to do for a long time. The hotel included in this package is four stars and offers good conditions. I recommend it to anyone interested in the Douro Valley
