Full description

Begin this full-day adventure with a pick up at your hotel on a comfortable air-conditioned minibus. Enjoy the views from this exciting trip towards the heart of Douro Wine RegionLearn all about Port Wine and the Douro Region History as you have the opportunity to visit two well-known Wine Estates.

This unique landscape is the result of the efforts of the people, who prepare the land and the vineyards until the time of their harvest. Be amazed by endless opportunities to take stunning pictures of the region. Did you know that the Douro Valley is a World Heritage Site, since 2001? You will definitely understand why. Fall in love with the wonderful views that the different viewpoints ("miradouros") offer you.

This is a land of wine producers, so it's time to visit a renowned Wine Estate to understand the whole technological process of winemaking. Only the exquisite quality of grapes combined with the perfect climate of the region can originate a genuine character to this so special wine! What remains to be said? Let's dive into a tasting experience: try some of the best Port wines.

Although it is a region known mainly for its delicious wines, we can not forget its singular gastronomy. The strong flavors and fresh ingredients are two visible features of the region. This private tour includes a traditional lunch in a typical restaurant in the region. Indulge in Portuguese gastronomy and delight yourself!

After lunch, expect an hour-long panoramic Douro river cruise, in the village of Pinhão. This is the best way to end your day and we promise you lovely moments! Observe the beautiful vineyards and the enchanted hills.

As you would expect, there is more to discover: another famous winery to visit. There, you will be invited to taste a wide variety of wines, surrounded by a truly welcoming environment: the vineyards of the Douro! 

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. 

Comfortably return to Porto without worries. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel.

Would thoroughly recommend
Tiago and Claudio were our hosts for the day trip from Porto into the Douro Valley. Tiago kept us entertained whilst Claudio kept the bus on the road around the tight bends through the spectacular countryside and mountain ranges where the grape vines for Port, Muscatel and Portuguese table wines gently spend the summer months. The lunch at the fabulous restaurant overlooking the valley had traditional Portuguese fair which lay the foundations for the tasting session that followed the boat trip at a Portal quinta.

One of the best tours we've done
The van was sooo comfy and modern. We did the winery one. We expected to taste two wines in two wineries. We had around 7 haha. Lunch was fantastic. Views of the valley were breathtaking. And most of all our tour guide Nuno (sorry for the spelling) and the driver were super attentive and full of information. Definitely give it a go! They have better promotions than most other tours we saw.

Great value!
Just to advise you that our Duoro Valley tour that we took today was fantastic! Our guide Francisco was extremely knowledgeable, and our driver Luias negotiated the winding roads with ease! The lunch was excellent and the winery (Sandeman) was extremely professional.

Keep up the good work Living Tours
Thanks for all the assistance from the tour booking to the trip we had. Always present by chat and phone, they helped choosing a good programme for me and the family (with kids). We dia a Porto city tour and the next day a douro valley trip. It worth every moment. No doubt, a very trustable operator for Portugal and Spain visits and activities.

Excellent tour
My wife and I wound up staying in Porto an extra day, and we're so glad we did! Our guide Sophie was a great source of info (and of course some jokes), and we were able to see 2 wineries and a traditional baker, as well as the panoramic river cruise. I was expecting the river cruise to be guided, but they let the amazing scenery speak for itself. The lunch meal is still one of the top 3 most memorable form our whole trip, and the bottomless wine definitely helped make new friends :)

Great service
Choice of wineries was great, and the 1 hour rabelo cruise was just right. The guide was good, but we particularly appreciated his initiative and effort in organising a vegetarian meal for us, which turned out to be excellent, and also trying to play country-specific music for us on the radio in the car
