Full description

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!

This tour is far from finished. 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.

After the river cruise, 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.

Return comfortably to Porto, observing the beautiful landscapes of the Douro Valley.

Douro Valley Wine Day Trip
A last minute (almost) decision for us to go on this tour as we weren't sure about committing to a full day tour with only 2 1/2 days in Porto, but it was Well Worth IT. We thoroughly enjoyed the two winery visits - especially the smaller of the two Vintage Theory. We liked the two other quick stops as it breaks up the trip/bus ride and gives you more things to see. Since we are water/boating people we probably could have done without the river cruise portion, but that is just a personal preference. Our guide Marina and driver Luis were exceptional. Thank You!!

Douro Valley Day Trip
Excellent day. Our driver Claudio was amazing. Loving his smile and spirt. Felt very safe being driven around by him. Very professional. On time and never felt rushed.
Corey
It was a great day! Many thanks!
Just returned from a tour expertly conducted by our guide, Tiago, and driver, Silvino. Tiago navigated multiple languages of our tour mates and responded to all our needs, including dietary restrictions (he asked ahead of time). He has a great sense of humor and kept us on schedule without making us feel rushed. Silvino navigated both the city and narrow, curvy vineyard roads with ease.

Douro Valley Wine Day
We had a good day on this trip, the bus is very new and confortable, there are a few stops to break up the long drive, the wineries are scenic and explain their processes well and luch was a highlight. The only this was that at lunch they did not really explain the two wines that we were drinking. The port tastings are quite generous with 4 ports to taste so probably not the best tour if you don't like port. Overall we had a great day with a good bunch of people and a fabulous guide. Definately recommend
Ellie
Amazing experience!!!
We take the tour wine on Porto, our guide Francisco Fonseca and bus driver Claudio made a wonderful job! We definitely will take another tour again ;)

This tour was a highlight of our trip to Portugal.
Professional, prompt and knowledgeable staff all round. Miguel our guide was informative and entertaining, and also arranged a local bakery visit. The wines were first class and the lunch was amazing with beautiful wines to accompany. The scenery was simply spectacular. Definitely worth the money.

Douro valley
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.

Wine Tour - Douro Valley
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. James and Massy Jamieson

Amazing day at the douro valley!
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!

Great wine tour of the Douro!

Quelle merveilleuse journée passée dans la région du Douro avec un guide extraordinaire, merci Nuno Pires!
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.

Joseph
Excellent experience on the Douro Valley wine tour.
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
A great experience doing the wine and river tour in the Douro Valley!
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, Steve

We booked this tour at the last minute and it was the highlight of our time in Porto
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.
Melinda Burland
Great tour!
Went with Francisco to Duero Valley and loved his story telling. Loved it

It was a lovely lovely day out of Porto
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!

VALERIE ET PHILIPPE
Excellent Tour!
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!

Wine Tour in Douro Valley
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
Guimaraes and Braga Tour
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.
Joyce Wicks
Excellent! Easy booking and comfortable transport
Nicely organized and Tiago our guide was knowledgeable and fun!

DOURO VALLEY TOUR: GREAT VALUE: If it’s cheap, it’s cheap for a reason.You get what you pay for.
Firstly, don’t waste your time, like I did, analysing all the numerous, different company, price offerings to tour the Douro Valley. If it’s cheap, it’s cheap for a reason! You get what you pay for! I agree with all the positive comments made before me, so I won’t repeat. I don’t have any negative comments. The whole experience was great. Claudia was our guide on 28/03/19. She was v friendly, had a high level of emotional intelligence, knowledgeable & engaging. Thank you, Claudia, for making our trip/ experience extra special. And thank you to our driver, Silviano, (sorry if I got your name wrong) who drove like he was transporting royalty. He washed the all the coach windows, during the first wine stop, to ensure we all continued to get great views. That’s what I call ‘going the extra mile’! I’d also like to thank ‘Fo Mouzinho’ from the Living Tours office team, next to Sao Bento rail station, who also helped us. You deserve a mention too.

Wine tour - Douro Valley
Me and my mother went to Douro Valley few days ago with this company. We visited 2 vineyard tasted high quality vines and eat launch than take a boat trip. Our guide was Claudia. My mother who travelled almost all country around the world and I agree that Claudia was the very best guide we ever met. She is very charismatic, talented and professional guide. We recommend this tour and Claudia as a guide and Carlos the driver.
