What you'll do

Come and see why we became awarded by Airbnb as being the Most Successful Hosts and Highest Rated Experiences for the last 2 years. We call it Commitment, Friendship and Passion for Culture, History and Wine.

THE JOURNEY
We start our day in Porto, heading to Douro Valley in a very comfortable Mercedes Van driving through spectacular roads. We want to let you immerse in breathtaking views in a Unesco World Heritage Site. It's time for a stop in a hidden viewpoint where you will have a great opportunity to take wonderful pictures.

THE WINE AND SOMETHING MORE
We will visit a stunning old winery where you will discover more about viticulture, winemaking and wine aging. You will learn about technical specifications of Douro Wines and their Terroir. Tasting their wines is embracing the whole region by feeling its aromas, flavours and complexity.

NOT JUST WINE
Before lunch, nothing fits better than 1 hour private cruise enjoying the breathtaking views with tasty snacks and drink.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST
We will drive you to another exclusive family-owned winery where we will enjoy a delicious home cooked Portuguese lunch pairing with their wines and then visiting their charming property.

Please be in mind that we offer something that you couldn't have access on your own!

Customer knows best: that's why we believe our reviews will tell you why we are the best Douro Valley Experience!

Ricardo and his team could not have planned a better experience. From the comfortable and clean Mercedes van to pasteis at our first look out spot, thoughtful storytelling about the history of the Duoro, amazing wines and outrageous lunch hosted at a family vineyard, everything was meticulously planned and carefully curated. We loved every minute and would come back in a heart beat.

If you are in Porto, book this experience. I am sure there are more tours but this must be the best. Bruno was a fantastic host. He gave us the best possible understanding of the area and brought us to unique places. The boat trip was our highlight, again with great local guides.

I would really recommend this experience! Bruno was really friendly and funny and was very passionate about his country and the region. He really cared about us and wanted to get to know us in order to tailor the experience to what we wanted/liked. The views were amazing and the home cooked lunch was really good. The glasses of wine and Port that we tasted were delicious ( and quite big, so I would recommend having a big breakfast before the tour so you won’t be drinking on an empty stomach). Since it was harvest time we could even cut some grapes ourselves!
