This tour will show the historical importance of the Douro Region, not only for the wine-making process but also for the Portuguese identity! Explore the culture, traditions, gastronomy and even the people of this so beloved region.

Start your tour around 08 AM (pickup at the hotel or meeting point) and travel comfortably towards the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. The Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful regions of the world and sure can impress the most demanding visitors. 

When you hear about the Douro Region, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? It may be the beautiful hills, the amazing landscapes or the world-renowned Port Wine

Our first stop is in Amarante, one of the most important religious cities in Portugal, related to the life and history of Saint Gonçalo. Visit the Sao Gonçalo Church and Convent, and observe the beautiful bridge over the Tamega river. Have time to explore the old historic center as you learn all the secrets of Amarante.

We will then continue to the Galafura viewpoint, one of the greatest highlights of this tour. The São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint will definitely take your breath away!  Have a privileged view over the Douro river and the surrounding landscape - the green and gold hills and the vineyards. 

It's now time for the Douro's gastronomy. Have a delicious lunch in a traditional restaurant, famous for its homemade food and the familiar recipes that have been keeping its essence for many years.

After lunch, the tour continues to Pinhão, one of the most beautiful and charming villages of the Douro Valley. There, enjoy another great attraction of this day: a 1-hour panoramic relaxing cruise over the Douro river waters. Observe the imposing natural views and the gorgeous vineyards. Prepare your cameras!

End your day with a fantastic visit to a renowned Wine Estate. A wine tasting experience is waiting for you: taste 3 wines of excellence and learn all about the Port Wine culture and making process.

Tour to the wineyards
Sir, we booked a tour with a small bus last week and we enjoyed it IMMENSELY!!! This mainly due to the extreme care Mr Ricardo Rite(?) took with us!! In my life, I have seen much of the world, (England, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Hongkong, Taiwan, Japan, Hawaii, USA, Germany, Austria, Romania, Ceska, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Spain, France, Italy, Kenia, Madagascar, Brazil, Mexico, Tanger,Gibraltar and more)! But I 've NEVER met a guide like Ricardo! He was extremly friendly and his personal way of comunication to each of us was just fantastic. Whatever we wished, it was most professionally arranged by him. Please forward our deepest thanks to Mr Ricardo. The tour was the highlight of our holiday, thanks to him, you can be proud to have a guide like him!
