A must do from Porto
Oct 2019
This day trip out to the Douro valley was the highlight of of two week trip around Portugal. Diana, our guide and the company are well organised and efficient. Diana was very knowledgeable, unhurried, good-humored and made our trip very enjoyable. After a pleasant boat trip on the Douro river admiring the scenery of the valley and just relaxing, we went to a small little winery close by up on a high hill with great views over the valley. Here we had a tour on how they make olive oil, afterwhich we had some wine tasting, together with almonds, bread and local olive oil. This really got everyone relaxed and in an enjoyable spirit. We were then taken back down the valley to a restaurant for lunch and enjoyed good company with good food and wine. In the afternoon we were taken to a larger wine and port producer and had a tour on how they make Port, followed by some port wine tasting, which was very yummy and enjoyable.
From here we headed back to Porto, but after all the wine and Port, we slept the whole way home.
Overall, a great experience with professional company and superb guide.

Brilliant day out
Jun 2018 • Couples
Just got back home after visit to Porto where my wife and I spent 5 days. On one of the days we fancied going out of the city and this was ideal. The mini bus picked us up from our hotel on time and drove us in comfort with just four other passengers to the Douro.
The wine and oil tasting was informative and the optional boat trip was good and the cool breeze was most welcome. Lunch was very good and included wine. This was then followed by the tour of the Croft vineyard with more tasting, this time of Port and a tour.
All in all an excellent day with good tour guides and good company.

Enjoyed our guide, but several criticisms overall
May 2018 • Couples
We were 4 family members who signed up for the full day Duoro Valley tour from Porto. We were picked up by the small van, and unfortunately the back seats (the only ones remaining besides the front next to the guide/driver) were not too comfortable, and our 4th person had to sit up front, away from us. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgable and an excellent driver on those hairpin curves/turns once we arrived in the Valley. The hour boat ride was lovely. Our main criticisms- we did one of the two wine tastings before lunch, but it was already early afternoon. We were hungry and the wine just so so. THEN. MY MAJOR CRITICISM. The advertisement said "lunch at a villa." (I've had lunch at a villa before. In Tuscany. It was divine. We hoped for a repeat performance.) WE WERE DEPOSITED AT A CAFETERIA. IN A LITTLE HOLE IN THE WALL TOWN. WITH METAL CHAIRS AND HORRIBLE FOOD. I am not being dramatic. The food and location and "ambiance" (if you can call it that) were horrible, and certainly NOT AS REPRESENTED. We complained upon returning home. Viator said they checked with the subcontractor and the "food was fresh and as advertised." ABSOLUTELY NOT. I WAS ENTERTAINING FAMILY AND I WAS EMBARRASSED BY THE LUNCH LOCATION AND FOOD. We took tour #12546DuoroValley. DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR.

Private Tour: Visited a winery, Port winery, and boat tour
May 2018 • Friends
My friends and I wanted to do a private tour, and this one was perfect. The tour guide picked us up from our hotel, and we headed to the Douro Valley. Our first stop was in Pinhao for the boat tour. It was very relaxing, however, there was no guide to tell us a little bit about the river. We then visited our first winery, which also had a room where they used to make olive oil. Very interesting! Lunch was back in Pinhao, followed by a visit to a port winery. This too was very interesting. Both places had tastings, which were very good and generous with their pours.

My only complaint here was that they sent us a guide with only 3 weeks experience. While she was very sweet, she was also very inexperienced and couldn't answer the majority of questions. Very frustrating, considering we paid WELL about the small group tour price. My advice is if you book with this company, ask about how much experience your guide will have. I am sure if we had someone with more experience, it would have been a more fulfilling tour.

Relaxed & interesting day
Apr 2018 • Friends
We really enjoyed this day & would recommend The Other Side as a company. We were picked up on time & the trip was exactly as advertised. The scenery was great - even on a rainy day! Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable & it was a good size of group to travel with. The wine tasting was fun & the food at lunch good. (We also did the walking tour with The Other Side which was good. Saw the main sites & a couple of quirky places too).

Great tour of the Douro
We had a great trip through the douro area. We visited a vineyard, a winery and a port winery. They were all very beautiful places. The Douro is very picturesque. We also stopped in pinhao for optional cruise which we did not do. Lunch was included there and it was one of the best meals we had while on our Portugal vacation. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and accommodating.
