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!!

This was our first time using toursbylocals and we were extremely happy with the experience.
