- Guide/driver was a cool guy.
- Good that they picked us up from accommodation. On time, great comms.

- Advertised as two wineries, went to one and an olive oil place.
- First winery was sandeman, tour with 40 other people and tasting of only 2x most base level port. Minimal you could pay for at the venue was 3x so this felt short on quality.
- stopped at local lunch venue, cheap, not very good food, not a nice place, wine was very Poor quality and acidic.
- third place was olive oil tasting with a bit of wine, overall better quality than the sandeman visit, again part of a very large group.
-Boat tour was okay, one hour around in a small boat, not much of a tour there.

Fun experience overall but not a real wine tasting.
Guide was pretty good and engaged.
Would recommend going for a more expensive one if available.

Amazing tour. Carla was our tour guide and she was part of the reason why It was phenomenal. She was a safe driver considering the winding roads and tough traffic. She was very knowledgeable of the valley. The tour was worth every dollar. The wineries were outstanding. Lunch is optional but recommend getting It since she will take you to an authentic Portuguese restaurant for 15 euros a person, It was substantial amount of food and wine. The boat ride was stunning. The views were amazing. The valley is gorgeous and recommend anyone to go.

There was no time when we weren’t thrilled with the trip to the Douro Valley! The ride was pleasant and the sights were magnificent! Lunch although not planned ahead was superb. It was Easter and most places were closed. John got us into the Restaurante and the meal was great. John made sure we had a coffee break for us and was solicitous of our every need.

Milena and dianna were the most lovely and knowledgeable tour guides I’ve been with. Your tour will start with a hotel pick up and a wine tour to the Porto wines. After that, a wonderful lunch (not included) and boat ride to see the beautiful Douro Valley at its true beauty. The last winery is truly breathtaking, and surely a must winery to sit, relax, take in the view, and sip some wine. Milena was extraordinary and couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. Best in Porto and a must do when visiting Portugal.

I was so impressed with this company! I am travelling on my own and very much wanted to join this tour as I had seen it on GetYourGuide however that would only allow a minimum booking of 2 people. I emailed the company direct and got a very quick response and they were able to book me in for the next morning! The tour guide Sergio was so great and really made the day even better with his knowledge of the area. We were a small group of 8 and that was just the perfect size! The cruise was great, the wine tastings and lunch even better! The lunch was not included however at a cost of €15 which included at least a few glasses of wine each and a three course meal at a winery which was absolutely delicious, it was definitely worth the extra cost. I’m so glad I was able to book last minute for this tour as it has been the highlight of my time in Portugal thus far!

This tour was very fun! We were picked up on time outside of our Airbnb in a very comfortable Mercedes van and given water. After picking up the other travelers, we began our 1.5 hour journey to the Douro where we had the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful views ever! Our first stop was at the Peso da Régua where we had the chance to stretch our legs, use the bathroom, grab a quick espresso and see the beautiful views from the bridge. We then got back into the van for a quick 20 minute ride to the boat dock. The boat was very comfortable and cute, offering wine and chips during the hour ride along the river. After the boat ride, we drove about 20 minutes to our first winery/olive oil shop that offered the most beautiful views of the valley! We got to see how the olive oil is made, try some olive oil with almonds and bread, and taste several wines, all while surrounded by the best view. Our next stop was lunch where we enjoyed many wonderful courses while sitting in the shade next to a lovely vineyard. Before leaving, we tasted port wines made there and had the opportunity to buy some if we wanted. Then we hopped back into the van for our ride home where our tour guide took us back to our hotels or Airbnbs. Overall, this was a great tour. However, I wish we had learned more about the Douro Valley and the vineyards there. Our tour guide - although very nice, friendly, and funny - did not offer much information about the Douro Valley's history. We overheard another tour guide from a different company explaining the history and found it very fascinating and would loved to have learned more from our guide. My one suggestion for this tour company is to teach the guides some information about the Douro to provide to the guests. Our tour guide had only been working there a few months, so maybe he was still learning about the Douro Valley as well. I was still very happy to have him as our guide! He was always checking that we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. I still strongly recommend this tour and had such a fun day and saw some of the most beautiful views possible!

I was booked with Inmotion tour, a recommendation from our inn keeper in Porto. They were over sold, so transferred us to Meridian4 People without letting us know ahead of time.

This was the worst 240€ I had ever spent. The guide, Manuel, was awful. He had only been doing tours for the past month, new to the industry, with absolutely no training. He knew nothing about Douro valley, ports or wines. He is only doing "this" to support his interior decorating store.

Furthermore, regarding the tour, we only went to super touristy places. If you want a romantic, intimate setting, dont use this company. We received no information. The food was awful and the Port was worse.

Super disappointed and a waste of a day.

Choose a different company!

Dear Lisa D, Thank you in advance for taking your time to review our company. We're sorry we didn't reach your prospects in relation to the tour. Let me just clarify a few points: In relation to what you bought, it was a regular tour, shared with other people. It is normal at this time of year to be more people on the wineries that we visited. If you wanted something more intimate and more romantic then you should have opted for the private tour. Then, you can choose the wineries to visit where to have lunch, all at your disposal. Regarding our guide, yes he started about a month ago, like any other has to start somehow. And of course he had previous training. We regret once again that we didn't meet your expectations. Thanks a lot! Greetings, The team MERIDIAN4PEOPLE TOURS PORTUGAL

My husband and I booked a tour last minute and it ended up being our highlight of our entire trip! Meridian makes it so easy by picking you up and dropping off at your hotel. We went to amazing vineyards with breathtaking views. The best part of the tour was our guide Milena. She’s very funny, kind, and knowledgeable about the region. I had the best time chatting with her and she made sure everyone on the tour was taken care of and having a good time. She even gave us an email to contact her if we needed recommendations for the rest of the trip. Make sure to request Melina!
