A Recent Review of this tour

Had an amazing day in the Douro Valley with Miguel. He not only provided an informative tour, but one where we were able to customize the day entirely based on my interests. We made some changes on site as the day progressed and he was terrific about handling it all as we moved along. In addition to visiting some of the stunning view points, we also had a great wine tasting experience at a family run small local winery, and lunch with an amazing view. I highly recommend Miguel!
