A Recent Review of this tour

Miguel was one of the best guides we had on our recent visit to Bordeaux and the Douro Valley. His love and knowledge of the area was amazing. The lunch with wine pairing he arranged for us was delicious and jaw dropping gorgeous . He was the epitome of what every tour guide should be. Abrigado for a wonderful day in Portugal. We will return and for sure use Miguel again.
