Philip, our guide's comprehensive knowledge of the Douro's history and geography and wines kept us very entertained for the 2 hour drive! Variety of Quintas for port, wine, olive oil, honey and a boat ride.

A Must-Do While in Porto!

We had the most wonderful day on this Douro Valley Tour! The small group (8 people) was the perfect size for this trip and our guide Hugo was absolutely fabulous! His knowledge of wine, specifically port, was perfectly sprinkled throughout the day to round out our experience. The drive from Porto to the Douro is a bit long ( a little over an hour), but it was picturesque and being in a van was far preferable to say a charter bus. The first winery we visited was absolutely beautiful and included 3 tastings of port and a charcuterie board. From there, we went to the boat for our Douro river cruise - it was the perfect length to take in the beauty of the area. From there, we went to lunch which included several types of wine in a quaint little town that had gorgeous views of the vines. Lastly, we went to a small, family-owned winery that included multiple tastings of wine, olive oil, and honey. The day was a highlight of our entire trip and I would tell anyone traveling to Portugal to book this tour without hesitation. And again, thanks to Hugo for a wonderful day!!

I have been on many excursions around the world and this wine tour was just excellent value for the money. So many great tastings and the meal was delicious. Often excursion meals aren’t great and this was fantastic. Unlimited wine. Views were spectacular. Highly recommend. Luxurious.

Lunch, great, informative wine/port tours, and of course the most beautiful Douro Valley… and our driver/host! Should have an option of a overnight tour, further up the valley!

Amazing sights but tour could be improved

While there were parts of this tour I enjoyed, I was disappointed in a few elements that were misleading from the description. First, although it says this is a small group of 8, that only applied to the van we were in. We were joined with other groups of the same company (our guide told us they were the same company) at all the stops on the tour - tastings, lunch, and boat ride. The first tasting at Quinta da Roeda was the standout of the day. A beautiful property and excellent port. The boat ride was beautiful but had no commentary and would have been improved with complimentary glass of Port upon boarding. Lunch was the biggest disappointment. The “local stop” was instead a property in the middle of renovation (possibly owned by the tour company) where 5 other groups were brought as well. The food was very disappointing and the wine was subpar for a wine tasting tour. The final stop for wine and honey tasting was all conducted while standing, so not a great experience. I would say if you’re really into wine, find a different tour. If you want a nice day in the beautiful Douro Valley and can look past the tourist trap, unimpressive lunch, you’ll still enjoy the day.

Hello Bailey. Thanks for your comment. We regret that you did not enjoy your tour to the Douro Valley in the best way. Portugal Excellence Tours is a small company and we have a small team that is very dedicated to our customers. On the day of your tour, we had two vans, each with 7 people, so the visits to the wineries took place with a maximum of 14 people. Regarding the boat, we cannot guarantee a private boat tour for only 7 people as there are other tour operators operating in the Douro Valley and we are not alone in the region. Our lunch includes salad and soup as starters, a main course (sea bass or pork), dessert accompanied by unlimited white or red house wine. Once again we regret that the tour did not meet your expectations. Thank you.
