What you'll do

Airbnb awarded this tour in 2019 as the MOST UNIQUE ACCESS EXPERIENCE to Douro, based on consumers choice of authenticity, history and best customers feedback.
We are very happy with the return of our guests about our commitment and passion for the Douro Valley.

We are a family business with high quality standards and personalized to give you a lifetime experience.

Let's go live an out-of-the-box wine experience.

We will visit 2 small wine producers, for us what matters is the charismatic people that you will know throughout the all experience. Authentic people, with tons of knowledge, but with a lot of character and personality.

Forget about the biggest commercial brands, it´s not for us.

With me you will learn the whole history of wine but in a fun way not boring, let's talk about table wines that we drink every day, but also the famous Port wine

We start with a private boat, where we taste Douro delicacies and drinks with the crazy pirates :) to explain us all the authentic stories of the Douro Valley.

Then we will have an exclusive visit with the winemaker in the first producer and get ready for some surprises you will love... we also have wines here, of course.

We finish on the second family estate from 1735, with lunch in a garden facing the vineyards, tasting wines and authentic food. Later we will taste 10/20/30 old Tawny´s.

Be ready for the perfect day...

What an amazing day! Manuel went above and beyond to provide an unforgettable experience. The day was so well thought out. He took us to every place that was listed and also had some surprises for us along the way. I was blown away by the beauty of the scenery snd the hospitality of every person working in unison with Manuel. From the boat tour, the wineries, and the lunch I felt extremely grateful to have experienced this. Manuel was amazing from start to finish. So much so that our group continued after the tour for dinner and drinks. Feel so lucky to have had such a great group of people that connected so well. Book with Manuel, you won’t be disappointed!

Let me just start by saying WOW! This entire experience start to finish was perfectly and thoughtfully planned. Manuel is an incredible story teller, he is well connected, and SUPERB host! We did everything listed and then some! The day was filled with history, beautiful scenes, great people, many laughs, amazing food and wine. The day lasted well into the night with Manuel going out of his way to even take, and join, us for dinner once back in Porto. Manuel and the group I was with did not make me feel like the solo traveler I am. I came out of this experience with some unforgettable memories and a bond with some great humans I would have never met otherwise. I cannot recommend this experience enough!! It far exceeded my expectations and it is worth every single penny. BOOK THIS, you will not regret it.

This experience with Manuel & Family has been the highlight of my time in Porto! Manuel is a great storyteller and an amazing host! Each aspect of the tour was well planned and hosted, from pick up to the boat ride, to each winery and lunch. I loved how Manuel has shown us the Douro region from a non-touristy perspective. He purposely planned for a scenic mountain route to really see the hidden side of the region, not simply only the river. The tour was set at our own pace, so you were able to take in all the beauty of the scenery in a relaxed state! If you are comparing Douro winery tours, don't simply compare the number of wineries visited, because it's about the quality, not the quantity. A visit to Porto would not have been complete with this tour!! Highly recommend booking this experience with Manuel. He sets the bar for what Airbnb Experiences should really be like!

This tour was amazing! I would highly recommend this tour. The meeting place was in a very convenient location. 7 were transported to a wine and port tasting at a small winery, a stop for pictures and then to a beautiful house for tastings and lunch. The day was really spectacular and I met others on the tour I felt were friends by the end of the tour. Do not hesitate to book, it was well organized.
