Superb experience through a breathtaking landscapes of Vineyards, with wine tasting.


Don't loose the opportunity to visit the Douro - come to see and feel the smells one of the most unspoiled places in Europe with stunning countryside and a "UNESCO" World Heritage area. Learn about the Douro Region, where the Port wines are produced.
Give yourself a present you will never forget. . . enjoy the relaxing view and visit a top selection places, in all region.
My suggestion is making something different all the day. Visiting the region, see where the Porto wine born and how is it made. Navigating on the Douro River enjoying the nature in all its splendour.

Itinerary

*08H30/09h30 Departure
* Short break on the way to start enjoying the beautiful landscape
*10H00/11H00 - Arrival to Pinhão, then my suggestion goes to a relaxed cruise along the dazzling Douro River in the typical "Rabelo" boat, to enjoy the vineyards and terraces along this amazing Valley.
Or option b) Going to "Casal de Loivos"! Amazing viewpoint on top of a mountain at 430 meters, to enjoy one of the best views all over the region!
*12h00/13h00 Arriving at Quinta Do Seixo (SANDMAN Vineyard) for a Guided visit. It is a very enriching experience, as we follow the entire production process, from the beginning gave, passing through places where it is made and stored this precious nectar. At the end, is offered a delicious wine tasting produced on the farm.
14H00/14H30 - Lunch! Difficult options must be chosen :)
16H00 - Back Porto from a different route. A relaxed way travel back home
Many seeing spots will be done along the day!

A Recent Review of this tour

The Douro Valley tour was our second tour with Pedro. It was truly spectacular. Pedro is a first class guide and, as with the Porto tour during the previous day, he was incredibly friendly, helpful, and patient. We had a fabulous river cruise, visited one of the top wineries, and had a wonderful lunch by the river. Again, we felt Pedro was one of our family. Very highly recommended tour guide and tour.
