Fantastic day, everything I was hoping for and more. I was only in Porto for 2 days and really wanted a chance to get out and see some of the much spoken about Douro valley. I was picked up from the hotel and right from the start went on a relaxing interesting day. Our tour guide; Paula Marinho was fantastic, and being a very small group (there was just myself and another girl from China), we talked about everything from relationships to unemployment in Portugal. The area is absolutely stunning and it was such a nice break to see the countryside. Highly recommended.

Just a note though, this agency has poor sign posting. If you wish to find this place do not rely on being about to turn up in the right location and simply finding it. I gave up trying to find it and only realised when I was inside booking the tour (with what I thought was a different agency) that it was actually living tours.

Great tour! Intelligent & customized solution to see the beautiful, remarkable and historically rich sites in 1 day. Nevertheless the sites are quite distant from Porto, the tour was comprehensive. Very well-organized with personalized treatment (for a small group of persons up to 8) and friendly environment. No stress, no rush with a plenty of time for free exploration. Our guide, Paula Marinho, was just outstanding leading the tour in 2 languages: English & Portuguese, driving the van, guiding through the sites with explanations, giving good tipps about the local habits and cuisine, maintaining the right mood and friendly atmosphere and even responding to every personal question. Will defintely recommend the tour and the company to friends.

Regards,

Ilham

We just had a wonderful day touring the Douro valley. Everything went smoothly and our tour guide, Joao, was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and fun. I would definitely book with this company again. they even picked us up at our hotel! The tourist information center in the center of the city helped us to book this tour. They were most helpful!

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
