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.

For this tour I do not think it's a good idea to try to see too much, going everywhere, visiting several "Quintas", definitely not! This is a unique and relaxing place to enjoy slowly in all its splendor, so from my experience of many years, I will take you to places you should not miss, through an exclusive experience that I hope you will not forget!

Itinerary

*08H30 Departure
*Short break on the way to start enjoying the beautiful landscape and take the opportunity to see a Cork Tree and get to know how cork is produced
*10H00 - 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 an Amazing viewpoint on top of a mountain at 640 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
