Traveler Tips


  • "I know that some visitors may like the idea of renting a car and attempting to visit some of these areas on their own, but I would argue that a small tour is preferable and much more relaxing." See review
  • "Almost another hour to climb to a panoramic view point for about 40 mins and then back to Porto - total 9 hour day trip." See review
  • "It is a very complete tour to the region, a very nice way to subtract the essence of this fascinating place." See review

A so so experience

As you can see the view of the river from the vineyard, the cruise in my opinion has absolutely no added value. As we are non drinkers, we asked the winery if they offer any alcoholic drinks. We were told since it’s not part of the package, we need to pay even for water. I think from a hospitality standpoint, they could have done better

Good afternoon from Living Tours, Dear Mrs. Elizabeth, First of all we would like to thank you your time sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to hear that the tour didn´t quite go throught your expectations. Rabelo boats always made part of Douro River history, once in the past they transported the tunnels of Porto Wine until Vila Nova de Gaia, thats why this little cruise is part of our tour, not just also for the landscape but for our clients relax a bit after lunch too. But of course we respect your opinion. Regarding the tour on the wineyard we will review with them the packages and the conditions. Apart from this, we hope you have enjoyed the Douro Region with our company and our guide. Looking forward to seeing you maybe a next time in Porto. Warmest regards Living Tours Team

Excellent trip 10 hours in length that included a visit to an idyllic town, a breath taking viewpoint, quality lunch, informative tour of Crofts with tastings and a 1 hour river cruise. Plus points included a small group of 8, stunning weather and a first class tour guide named Diane.

Fantastic day out in the beautiful Douro Valley. Our guide Ricardo was knowledgeable, polite, funny and a great host for the day. I particularly liked his linking of the music to the scenery. Highway to hell on ‘death road’ being a favourite. Equally, an excellent driver and able to split fairly between English and Spanish. The visits were top class, seeing the little carnival in Amarante, the phenomenal views of the valley, and the excellent lunch, minus local tripe, were all first class. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxed day out, the chance to get out of Porto central and the opportunity to be guided by a knowledgeable local.

Douro Valley Tour

We enjoyed the tour. The Douro Valley was absolutely beautiful. However, the bus broke down (apparently for the second time in a week) at the lunch stop...and we were then spilt up into four separate smaller vehicles. This prevented us from experiencing any narration, explanation or engagement with our tour guide. He was in another vehicle. He tried to make the best of a bad situation as did the additional drivers who arrived in the other vehicles. We have no issue or complaint with the folks who personally conducted the tour. They were great. We were upset that the tour company knowingly used a vehicle that was at risk of a likely breakdown. It negatively impacted the quality of the tour. For that reason, we can't give them a good rating. We would rate the office personnel at the pick-up stop and the tour guide and extra drivers 5 stars.

The Douro Valley is beautiful and totally different to Porto, very much worth seeing. The lunch and restuarant were both great.
