Wine Tour - Visit 2 Wineries with tastings, enjoy a Traditional Lunch and relax during 1 Hour Boat Tour


While I am guiding your tour I like to stop at several viewpoints to admire the breathtaking views. We drive along with the undulating hillsides/terraces, green valleys, beautiful vineyards, majestic almond and olive trees of Douro's Wine region.

As soon as we get the Douro Valley we start by visiting a Winery and then to do a delicious Port's wine tasting to open your "appetite". {or regular Douro wines}

We start our lunch with a toast with "Moscatel". Then we enjoy a very traditional Portuguese meal. No, it's not super gourmet… It will be food of our "mothers" like we love!

After a tasteful lunch, nothing fits better than an one hour panoramic cruise! A delightful way to enjoy the dazzling landscapes of the Douro Valley capable of raise several sensations.

A Recent Review of this tour

What an incredible experience!! This tour was one of the highlights of our trip and Ricardo was absolutely fantastic! He went above and beyond to personalize the tour and make sure we were maximizing our time in the Douro Valley. We can't say enough about how much we appreciated Ricardo and how much fun we had. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour. Ricardo even sent us photos afterwards that were taken on his nice camera. Excellent tour and excellent guide! Thank you!!
