A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing day in the Douro with Miguel. In general, he is extremely knowledgeable about wine and the Duoro region. He had perfect a perfect itinerary planned out for us, yet the entire day felt relaxed. His winery choices were also suburb - very high quality and mostly boutique/family-owned. We loved them all. There is not one thing I'd change about our day, and highly recommend Miguel's services.
