“Not to be missed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I spent an amazing day on this tour. My tour guide was fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. The Douro valley is simply stunning and the visit to the vineyard was unforgettable. I would love to do this tour again when I next return to Porto.
Thankyou

“Really great trip to the Douro Valley!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We spend a very nice day in the Douro Valley visiting Amarante, Lamego and a portwine wineyard where we had a Tour and a tasting of five different kinds of portwine. Our guide Joao Brandiao told us about the area, the sights and Portugese culture in general and he did an excellent job of making the trip both interesting and pleasant.

Cheers Lise & Mikkel (Denmark)

“Beyond our expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We (my wife and I) just completed this tour and it exceeded our expectations. Our Guide, Joao, was professional, patient and passionate. We actually caught this tour with a rainy start and I almost forgot about this for how amazing the entire experience was. The stop for lunch was definitely a highlight as the food, scenery and overall experience was priceless.

This is a must do if travelling to Porto! Thank you Joao for the great tour!

“Douro Valley day tour with wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

My sister and I went to Douro Valley with Living Tours and we had an excellent experience. Joana, our tour guide, was always on time, explaining us several aspects about Portugal and portuguese culture along the way to our first stop at Quinta do Seixo. The views of the valley are breath-taking! At Quinta do Seixo we learned about the making of Porto wine and tasted different types of wine. Then we went for lunch to Régua, a small town nearby. The restaurant had a great view, and the service and food were great! After lunch we visited another vineyard, this time it was a smaller lovely vineyard in which they use a more artisanal process to make the wine. Afterwards we had another wine tasting to finish our day tour. By the end of the day, my sister and I were very pleased with the whole tour, we strongly recommend it! :)

“Experience the Douro Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

I'm so glad we went with the Living Tours. Our Guide "Joao" was the most professional guide we could hope for. Easily switching from English to Spanish explaining the sights and handling the minibuss at the same time. The trip itself took us trough the breathtaking views of the Douro Valley which is a world heritage area. Absolutely must see if you're in Porto. The trip includes visiting different cities of the douro valley and wine tasting.

We ate lunch by the Douro river. I recommend the fish choice. So tasty and fresh!

Joao took us to this small winery called "Quinta do Tedo" which was really beatiful. We learned about the making of Port Wine. And yes you get to taste it as well.

The trip was easily worth the price. Many thanks to Joao for always being polite and answering our endless questions about Portugal. Highly recomended!
