**This is an updated review from my original one (posted 5/21)**
I originally rated Douro Exclusive three (3) stars for the tour based on an issue I will lightly highlight below. I added one (1) star because the owners were responsive and resolved the issue with me privately.
When I had my tour with Douro Exclusive, I did have an overall good experience, but it was dampered due to an extra pick up in the Valley, which added a lot of time (around 2-3 hours total) to the overall day. If that pick up had not occurred, it would have been a better experience overall.
The scenery in the Valley is beautiful and you get to see a lot of it, it’s panoramic views everywhere.
The lunch at DOC was great, and a nice, more elevated meal than I’ve had on previous tours and again, came with great views. Staff at the restaurant is great and very responsive to our table and anyone with food allergies.
We visited two wineries too, both of which were really nice. The tasting was great and we got to really explore Port wines, and see some great views. Really enjoyed those visits and it was the right amount.
Boat tour was fine, but didn’t have the best valley views, that said, being out of the car was nice.
Despite my not so great tour day, I do appreciate Douro reaching out to resolve the issue privately. That was much appreciated. While it doesn’t change my experience, I would consider recommending them or going on another tour with them in the future, with more clear communication ahead of time.
