Reviewed 6 August 2014

We picked this tour company as the itinerary was a little different from other tours travelling to the same places. We had a long but enjoyable day,starting the day with sponge cake & port, then exploring Guimaraes & Braga. Our guide Deana was well informed & happy to share her knowledge of these beautiful cities.We saw alot, but were not rushed,plus we had free time for lunch and a wander around ourselves which was good. The tour could take about 8 people but we were the only 2 on this tour; so we were priveleged to have our own 'private' guide.Thankyou for a great day. Karen & Steve Rowland (Australia)

We had a great time with our guide , Diana, who was fun, passionate and knowledgeable. The two wineyard we visited were lot more wow than ever could imagine also guided by passionate people. At lunch we did discover the most beautyfull little city called Amarante. Douro valley, quinta santa eufemia and quinta da aveleda will always stay in our memories one of the best highlights of all of our trips

Thanks to theotherside tour and Diana

The Other Side is perfect for those who love to travel and want to get an insight into Portugal´s true culture. My partner and I did the Douro and Vineyards tour and we did more in a day with our private guide then the 3 days in Oporto! Hiring a guide is the best way to learn about a culture, especially with The Other Side as they are genuinely from the region themselves. We did a lot of wine tasting, a roadtrip to the amazing town of Amarante and the best views from the Douro valleys. I would recommend this tour company to anybody that wants to learn about the local heritage in this region of Portugal.

The tourism point of "The Other Side" is such a nice place! Me and my friends arrived to Porto a little bit lost so we decide to visit their tourism point. They gave us amazing tips so it was really easy to discover all places and things to do in Porto. Also they told us some other places to visit in the surroundings of Porto so we had an amazing journey in the city! Thanks for all the help!

My two friends and I did the walking tour of porto. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. She was very flexible and the company was very responsive to my emails, even when I wanted to push the tour back to the afternoon an hour before we were supposed to start. It was three hours and it didn't feel that long at all. We got a good sense of Porto and are very happy to have taken the tour.
