Excellent but small group not so small
Stuart_P
, Jun 2022
Diane our guide was excellent and the travel and commentary superb.. My only criticism was that we deliberately went for the more expensive small groups tour but at each vineyard we were joined by another small group so became a larger group, and the river cruise an even larger one!
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Stuart, Thank you for taking a moment to comment on your tour with our guide, Diana! While we do organize small shared tours for up to 8 people, please have in mind that we do not have control over how many people are visiting one of the locations of our activities, as these are not owned by us. We always make sure to book our visit to time slots that have the least number of external participants, at the moment of our bookings - after that, we can not guarantee that Wineries or other locations will not accept more bookings of their own will after our bookings, to the same time slots. Since this is the high season there are, in fact, a lot more people visiting the Douro Valley region, which can result in some locations being a little bit more crowded than usual. We are sorry and sincerely hope that, despite this, you were able to enjoy your day trip with us to this wonderful location! Kind regards, Joana Alves Oporto Road Trips

Treat yourself to this tour of the Douro valley which is like Napa on steroids! Pedro (Peter), our guide, is a wealth of historical knowledge and his English is excellent! Wineries, boat cruise, authentic Portuguese lunch and taking in the scenery amounted to a fantastic day. This is a must if you are in the Porto area!

Great port tasting at Quinta do Tedo
Karl_C
, Jun 2022
My first review in Viator since I feel this particular tour desired mentioning. I reviewed all the tour options (everyone has similar descriptions so how do you differentiate?), before selecting this specific tour because I am selective about the wineries. Our guide Hélio was excellent in providing historical facts about Portugal and Douro Valley during the trip. The first winery was mediocre. I expressed my interest in nice wines so Hélio arranged for an extra tasting when we were at Quinta do Tedo which was excellent. The scenery was great and the port tasting at Quinta do Tedo was excellent. Highly recommended.

Excellent and fun tour to Douro Valley for Port wine tasting.
Cindy_C
, May 2022
Our guide/driver was amazing. Chiala is very knowledgeable on the region, the port wines, and the history of the wineries we attended. She is a safe driver. We loved the tour, and even bought some port wine to ship back to the US. The terrain of the area is breathtaking beautiful and the restaurant we dined at for lunch was delicious. We really felt so well taken care of all day. I would definitely do this again, and recommend to anyone visiting Porto to take trip to the wine country in the Douro Valley.
