The Douro Valley and Medieval Lamecum - Wine and Olive Oil Tastings, Miradouros (Sightseeing Views); Wine Tour


The panoramic roads, the beautiful landscapes, the amazing wines and olive oils of the Douro Region it will amaze you.

More than a mainstream tour, I would like to show you, and bring to your taste some of the really traditional Douro Valley wines and olive oil.

I will introduce you to the Douro Valley, with an insider's view, keeping the information interesting and straightforward.

You may expect a revealing approach to the Douro Valley Gastronomy, History, Myths, Traditions and curiosities.

Lamego, or medieval Lamecum enriches this tour with beautiful monuments full of history.

Ucanha is a wine growing village, small but beautiful and very unique. Their fortified tower and Roman bridge are full of curiosities that you will check on site.

I love this region, and this tour is designed to make you feel the same.
