Our day with João wine tasting outside of Lisbon was the highlight of our trip. My friends and I take wine tasting tours in almost every place we visit, but João’s tour stood out as the best because of his passion for hosting and educating his guests, and knowledge of wine and the local area. What I loved most was how we walked away from this tour with information we could retain about the wine making process, a better understanding of types of wines we like/don’t like, and how to read labels and shop for Portuguese wines. Also João is just a fascinating guy we loved chatting with all day! The homemade cheese and farm dog at the second location were also highlights.

I know that the quiz at the end was hard, but you barely passed it! hahaha "Educating" is a strong word. As I told you in the beginning, I´m no wine connoisseur. Just like you, we like wine, and with that, you already have a wine knowledge. We just try to show and explain the bases of what sometimes we forget. After that you are on your own... ;-) Warmest Regards and come back soon for another go! Joao Dickmann

João was engaging, knowledgeable and personable; we couldn’t have asked for a better guide! The three places we visited were all distinct and really great representations of the Setubal wine region. João gave us lots of information in a way that was understandable and not overwhelming. I’d highly recommend this tour if you’re in Lisbon and wanting to learn more about Portuguese wines!

Thank you very much for this review! It is always very important for us to know our travellers feedback!

Thank you for the review! We try to give a bit more than just a wine tasting in our experiences. History, farming and tasting, but all around our wines... :-) Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann

My friend and I did a wine tasting tour with Joao a few weeks ago, and it was incredible! Joao picked us up from our Airbnb right on time, and he drove us in a nice, clean van about an hour out of Lisbon to the wine region. During the drive, Joao was able to answer questions we had about Lisbon, wine, and various topics. Throughout the whole day, it was nice to have Joao to answer any and all questions we had. The tour included three tastings with a wide variety of types of wines. As someone who doesn’t personally appreciate fortified wines, I was happy that the tastings weren’t solely one type of wine. This was definitely a 5 STAR tour and 100% worth the money! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Lisbon and even remotely interested in wine.

Thank you very much for taking some time to write this kind review! We always try to offer different wine types during our tasting. In this way it´s interesting also for us, to understand our travellers choices. Every day even for us it´s a different tour in this way. We all live and learn... ;-) Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann

We had a fantastic experience touring with Rodrigo, from the time he picked us up at our hotel to when we had to say goodbye. Time flew by. His conversation with us was full of humor as we learned about Portugal wine, the region, history about the country and ideas of things we might want to see or do during our remaining stay in Portugal. The two vineyards we visited were beautiful and we saw a nice contrast between a large commercial winery and a small family-owned organic winery. An added "surprise" detour was made to show us how tiles were hand painted, giving us more appreciation for this ancient craft. Our last "wine" stop was at a place where wines were available from many regions. By then, Rodrigo had learned what we liked and he expertly selected our last 5 wines to try. We enjoyed this tour so much and only wished we could have participated in additional tours with Rodrigo.
