Great experience for wine lovers!

We (being a group of 4 girl friends) chose the particular Viator wine tour because it appeared to offer slightly more than some others. We thoroughly enjoyed the day! Our guide, Sofia, was excellent - personable, fun and shared a wealth of knowledge as she transported us from one highlight to the next. Because there was only 8 of us on the tour, each stop felt exclusive and we had time to enjoy everything each had to offer. Lunch at what felt to be the sort of place the locals would frequent (thumbs up from us all) was delicious and plentiful with a choice of either fish or meat, with wine flowing! Everything combined made for a truly enjoyable day. Would recommend without hesitation.

If you are fortunate enough to be in this area, don’t miss this tour. Our guide, Helio was terrific. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about his country. The tour was well paced, full of beautiful scenery, and there was a relaxing boat ride on top of that. I haven’t even mentioned the wine tasting which was, Wow!, a lot of fun and full of great information. Go for it !

This tour was great, and made all the more special by our host, Christian. As he picked all the tour-goers at different hotels, he asked everyone their name and where they were from, and then introduced us to the folks already in the van and them to us. It was the perfect way to start off the tour with a bunch of people you didn't know. He was a good driver, getting us safely to all the destinations, and in the areas with windy roads, he drove carefully and steadily which was important for those who get motion sickness. Along the drive, he provided lots of information - in a funny, casual way - with us, alternating between English and French to accommodate everyone in the van. I actually liked this as it then gave us time to chat among ourselves as he communicated with the others in their native language. The port vineyard (Quinta do Tedo) was fantastic. We had a wonderful host and the ports were tasty. Even though we were not alone in the tour, sharing it with other tour groups, It felt like a private tour. It was small enough to feel personal, and we had plenty of time with the tour guide to ask questions. Just a lovely visit. The second vineyard (D'Origem) was a bit of a letdown. Our tour guide was nice, but it felt rushed. The tasting was pleasant (olive oil, honey, and wines), but could not compare to the first. The tour of the olive oil museum was interesting, but I don't know if I would ever return to this vineyard. The river tour was nice, but kinda meh. In the area the tour goes on, the views are all the same. There is nothing really exciting about, but it was relaxing to be outside and take a little time to just breathe the fresh air and have some quiet time. The lunch was very nice, with a great selection of Portuguese dishes and wines. It was a small restaurant and very crowded and very loud (tour groups like this place apparently), which made conversation fairly difficult without yelling. The food was delicious, however. Overall, it was so much fun, and I am glad I was able to book this tour. Again, Christian was the highlight, making sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Dear David, Thank you for such a detailed review! While we are happy that you have enjoyed your trip to the Douro with our guide, Cristian, we are sorry to hear that some bits of the experience were a bit crowded and rushed. With the approaching of the heat in this high season start, things start to get a bit crowded all of a sudden - this is most certainly something that we will keep an eye out for, so thank you for your feedback! Travel safely. With our warmest regards, Joana Alves Oporto Road Trips
