Beautiful Trip Through the Douro Region
Allison M
, Sep 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour through this region. The vehicle was comfortable (although a bit tight for the amount of people due to a baby seat in the back). The guide we had (Carla) was very pleasant and looked after us very well. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, food and wine delicious! We are so glad that week booked this tour!

Douro Valley Tour
Ilana F
, Sep 2019
The tour was a very good way to experience the Douro Valley in one day. Our guide Michaela was excellent. His English was perfect, he was very patient and he explained everything well. This is a beautiful area of Portugal and worth seeing. We were very fortunate that the other couples in our group were very nice. My only criticism was the lunch was a bit too long and too commercial.

Duoro Valley Premier Tour from porto with lunch, wine tasting & river cruise

, Sep 2019
This trip was a huge success and a highlight of our vacation to Portugal. The river cruise, lunch, wine tasting and our tour guide Carla were great. The tour only allows 8 people maximum; however, the only negative is the vans are small and cramping 8 people into a small van can be challenging at times when you have to drive some distance. Everything else was great.

This tour was not as advertised. We are experienced travelers who have booked through Viator before and been most satisfied. The tour description led us to believe we would learn about the Duoro River valley. Our driver, Carla, provided no information other than a few brief sentences, like there are 4 kinds of port - red, tawny, rose and white: those are grapes for green wine they look different than other grape vines and in my opinion the views between Pinhao and Regua are the best. She told us nothing about the river itself, no tidbits of interesting information. We were not expecting nor did we want a non-stop monologue but we were expecting information with some substance at various parts of the tour. The van was extremely dirty. You could see where windshield wipers had been used - the area cleared by the wipers was covered with bugs and the area outside the wipers' reach was so dirty you couldn't see through it. The side windows for our scenic tour were very dirty also. The air-conditioning in the van was not working properly. It wasn't too bad in the morning as we were driving to the Douro but, after the first wine tasting stop, the three of us in the back seat were sweating profusely. It is really miserable. Comments made by Carla made it clear that the company knew the van was not up to par, especially the air-conditioning. We told her that, if the company knew there was a problem, they should have told us when they picked us up and given us the opportunity to opt out - we would have - we came from Florida and part of our motivation was to get away from the heat! We thought the tour was going to be in English - and it was. But it was also in French as one of the three couples spoke only French. So we had to stand and listen to everything twice. Carla was a good driver. The wine tastings, which Carla was not around for, were fine - one OK and one outstanding. The boat ride was pleasant. But the overall experience was really spoiled by the dirty van, the HOT van, and the lack of interesting information about the Duoro Valley. We definitely did not feel we got our money's worth. Our standard practice is to tip very generously. We did not tip Carla and neither did the other two couples on the same tour. One of the other couples said they had been on previous Douro Valley tours and learned a lot - and felt there were many interesting things Carla could have told us. Thank you for listening. We very much enjoyed our Mallorca walking tour and Porto walking tour through Viator on our same trip.

This was a full day tour and we loved all of it. If you are in Porto then this trip up the Douro Valley is a must. As the tour was full our group of four had a car to ourselves with an excellent driver and guide. The visit to the Sandeman Bodega was informative, fun and very worth while. We bought a half bottle of vintage port. The scenery is beautiful and we enjoyed the boat trip as well. Just do it. Phillip

Even though the drive to the section of the takes some time 1-1/2 hours, it is worth it! Pinua is a quaint village and the short river cruise provides a nice break, plus the view from the water. The two winery stop were informative and picturesque. Our guide was a good driver and knowledgeable of the area. Nice size group 6

Stephen S

Great tour, comfortable small bus, good aircon. The Douro Valley is astoundingly beautiful and our guide, Miguel, was very knowledgable, obliging, helpful and had a good sense of humour. His English was excellent and he was happy to vary the tour to suit us. The traditional lunch packaged with the tour was excellent, and the tour and tasting at the small family winery was certainly good value, as was the very slick presentation at the extremely well-heeled Sandeman establishment. We also thoroughly enjoyed the short cruise on the river. Everywhere the views are to die for.

We had a wonderful day in the Douro. Our guide Maria was very helpful and attentive. the only negative part of the trip was the first small winery in the town of Peso da Regua. The entire group felt that it wasn't a good experience and not what we were expecting. The second one Symington, however, is exceptional.
