          Joao was excellent
          We had (family, five persons, a lot of experience using vip-services) a private tour from Porto to Douro wine-area, especially to Pinhao area and there winetasting, lunch and river-tour by boat. Our driver and guide was Joao Frade. Excellent service, a lot of information and good English skills. I recommend strongly. Hole daytrip was all worth of money in a reasonable price.

          Not worth the $$ for a private guide
          I would strongly advise not doing business with this company. We booked a different company, and then they sub-contracted us to ANE Tours when visiting the Douro Valley. It was so disorganized and they didn't have an itinerary, everything was just very haphazard with no plan. The two things we had been specific about, including a wine tour and a lunch reservation, did not happen and they blamed us and the original company. No one took any responsibility for the lack of communication. I asked to have them call me back to talk about compensation and no one ever followed up with me during the tour. It's honestly not worth the expense for hiring a private guide where you would expect top notch service, would recommend using a different company or just using public taxis.

          Excellent personalised experience
          Bernadino hosted our private tour at short notice. The car was plush and spotless. Bernadino was hugely knowledgeable and passionate about the area with a personal interest in the wine industry which was a great benefit to us. His English is endearing. Our experience was extremely good value for money and an excellent recommendation from the local tourist office.

          Wow wow wow Bernardino!
          We did a Douro River wine and gastronomy tour for a day with Bernardino. Firstly Bernardino is a wonderful, safe driver who speaks English very well and has lot of great information and stories. He planned a beautiful day for us in the lovely Mercedes Benz in a private tour. We visited many lovely wineries to taste Douro wines and Port and then went for a beautiful lunch in Pinhão. Having done lots of wine tastings around the works and this is one of the most beautiful places with great wines and port and friendly people! Wow wow wow. Thanks Bernardino!!

          Amazing way to see Porto!!
          Enjoyed a half day city tour of Porto visiting all the major sites. The best way to see this city was with our private guide Bernardino Sousa!!! He did not only get us to all the hot spots but was a wealth of information explaining the city and its history. He allowed us time to visit the sites and even stop for a coffee at the Majestic Cafe! A drive along the coast highlighting the Promenade and a postcard picture taking opportunity was simply breathtaking. At the end of the tour we stopped for some Port tasting which was amazing!! Thank you Bernardino for this experience!!!

          A day with Bernardino
          Bernardino was our congenial guide for a day in the Douro Valley. He had a great deal of information and local knowledge to download. Before you have your day out check what’s included in the trip - you too might find that you are expected to pay for your guide’s coffee and lunch! JL

          Awesome private tour
          What a moment in heaven it is when you immediately are charmed by your private tour guide. That how we felt about Bernadino Sousa, our guide for the day through the Douro Valley! Bernadino was amazing and helped us to see and taste the very finest of the Douro. Wonderful, charm filled stops at cathedrals, a tile decorated marvel at the train station in Pinhao, and sumptuous tastings at Quinta Popa! The valley is known for It’s fine Port wine and Quinta de Popa did not disappoint. All day long the English speaking Bernardino filled us in in the life and the history and the people of the Douro. He was truly a godsend to us as we had the best day we could have imagined. Cheers and thank you Bernardino, you were truly amazing and gracious. We could not have asked for a better day nor a better tour with one of the finest guides! Please contact him for a thorough and informative tour.

          Bernardino was an excellent host for our tour and we had a great day visiting guimaraes and Braga . We would thoroughly recommend this service to any prospective travellers visiting Porto - the car was clean and water was provided while at every stage we were dropped off and picked up close to all attractions

          Awesome private tour!
          Our private driver Ivan Oliveira was a superb host touring us throughout the Douro Valley- Ivan's personal knowledge, professionalism, and friendly manner made for a perfect day. Ivan suggested lunch at the DOC restaurant which was absolutely incredible - the food, setting, and service was outstanding - Thank you, Ivan!!!

          Vinho verde tour
          We booked a Vinho Verde tasting tour through tour hotel. We were lucky in that we ended up with a private car and driver and the driver was kind and helpful. However we visited only one winery which gave us a great tour of the gardens, only gave us 2 wines to taste Both were mediocre. The rest of the tour was sightseeing. I don’t think you could name this a wine tasting tour. The winery could have offered other and better wines from their collection. The tour company could have taken us to more than one winery.

          Anetours: 5 days perfect transportation in Porto and the North
          We organized an architecture trip to Porto and the North in the beginning of october 2018. Anetours provided transportation. Cesar was our driver every day. He is the most friendly, and helpful driver we ever had. His new bus was always super clean, and whenever we got into the bus, Cesar had a big welcoming smile. Our group ( 24 pax) has very good memories of this trip, also thanks to Cesar.

        The half-day tour was an excellent investment to learn more about Porto's history and layout. It gave us a solid foundation for further exploration on our own. Manuel was a great guide - very knowledgable and very helpful with answers to our questions. We got to see much more of Porto by car than we could have on foot.

        We wish we had booked our tour with Bernardino our fist day in Porto instead of wandering around ourselves. Being a native from Porto, he is so knowledgeable about not only the history but inside the stories. His English was great and his sense of humor helped us appreciate and remember all the amazing sights we saw. He was friendly but very professional so we felt comfortable and well taken care of during the entire tour! You can’t go wrong to book a tour with Bernardino

        We waited 30 minutes on the street before going to where we could make a wifi call to the provider since we got no response to our Trip Advisor text as to where the driver/guide was. The provider was VERY confused at first and didn't seem to know we had a tour booked with them. Finally asked to give them another half hour to see if they could get a driver there. Rather than the agreed upon pick up spot we had to go to the end of the street to wait. Manuel arrived an hour and fifteen minutes late from original start time. Manuel did a nice job giving us an overview of the history of Porto using the Sao Bento train station and the cathedral to explain. We had an early wine tasting/tour so went there next. It was well done. After that we had a panoramic driving tour of Porto including the coastline with informative interpretation by Manuel, but nothing like what the Trip Advisor overview had indicated. Not sure we'll book another tour with Trip Advisor.

        Martinho Ramos was a fantastic tour guide- with his knowledge and good humor we discovered Porto in way that wouldn’t have Ben possible otherwise. Martinho’s English was excellent and he shared his historical knowledge and personal anecdotes with passion and good humor.
