Enjoy the splendour of the Douro Valley - the famous river, its wine and a beautiful palace!


Depart from your hotel en route to the breathtaking Douro Valley. Your first stop will be at the splendid Mateus Palace which is depicted on the labels of the famous Mateus rosé wine. Tour the ornate manor house and its beautiful gardens.

Continue to an award winning winery, set amongst the terraces of the valley, where you will indulge in a traditional gourmet lunch consisting of specialities of the estate paired with their award winning wines followed by a private tour of the cellar and port wine tasting.

After lunch you will embark on a traditional rablelo river boat which was used to transport the port wine. Experience the historical Douro River and more spectacular scenery on this one hour boat trip.

After you disembark, this wine tour continues another famous wine estate for a comprehensive tour and tasting. Relax while returning from the majestic Douro Valley to Porto.

I can create a custom tour for you should you have any special requests or if you are more than 6 guests.

A Recent Review of this tour

Best decision we made in this trip is to go with Miguel to Douro valley. We went to two of the oldest wineries and enjoyed the wine. We had a private lunch and was greeted by the Chef. Awesome!!!1
