What a great day spent in the Duoro Valley with Manuel! It was so much more than I expected! Everyone throughout the day was very attentive, full of knowledge and had many stories to share. Would recommend everyone to book with Manuel!

Manuel was a great host; friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He knows his business and clients. If the price point is scaring you, don’t worry it’s worth every penny. You won’t be able to have the same personalized experience on your own or with a bigger company, especially if you want to drink and enjoy the wineries! The wineries he chose gave us first class, personalized service. The ride in the convertible topped it off.

Даже в дождливый серый день Мануэль создавал солнечную атмосферу дружелюбия, провёз нас по долине реки, организовал катание на уютной лодке с дегустацией (коктейли до 12 это прекрасно), посещение винодельни с экспертными экскурсоводами, и прекрасный обед с дегустацией вин в исторической вилле. Благодаря гармоничному сочетанию активной и пассивной частей экспириенса усталость совсем не чувствовалась. Большое спасибо за прекрасные воспоминания. Однозначно рекомендуем !

How about this: Manuel was an excellent host, truly a mourinho of his profession, and the people we met and whom also hosted and guided us were all passionate and made our day memorable. Manuel took us all around the Douro, and we learned and saw so much in such a short space of time that we would recommend anyone wanting to do a trip to go with him- they will not be disappointed! He is a lovely, funny guy that makes an effort to ensure his guests have a comfortable and enjoyable time, we could not ask anything more. Manuel, thanks again to you and your friends, it was much appreciated!

If you’re debating the price, just do it! My sister and I booked this tour very last minute after getting the recommendation from a friend who went on the tour last year and we were hesitant to spend the money so spontaneously. Thankfully, I wouldn’t change our decision in the slightest. Everything was superb. From the private Kopke vineyard tour, to the private Portuguese home where a 3-course lunch and endless wine was supplied, everything exceeding our expectations. The two wine tastings were very different and I appreciated both. The Douro Valley is simply beautiful and the landscape for the entire tour is breathtaking. Manuel also picked us up/dropped us off at our hotel. This day was super tailored, personalized, local, delicious, educational, and just down right awesome. My sister and I both believe this is one of the best tours we’ve ever had. Thank you, Manuel!

On my 30th birthday I and 8 friends decided to book a private tour with Manuel. We chose the Douro Most Unique Access Experience Tour. Since it was my birthday Manuel picked me up with a new Mercedes E-Class convertible. The day started already in a perfect way. The van for the others was also super comfortable. We drove to Douro Valley, during the ride we learned so much about the valley and about the Portuguese culture. The first stop was by the river, here the boat tour started. This was for us the highlight of the trip. The landscape was beautiful and the two guys on the boat were super informative and offered us snacks and a delicious port wine with tonic water to try. At the moment this is our favorite drink 😊 After the boat tour we visited a Quinta to learn about how to make port wine. The personal of the vineyard were super informative, friendly and they spoke super good English. We learned a lot and also had a great time tasting different port wines. The last stop was in a beautiful house on a hill of the valley. The food was delicious and we ended our meal with the perfect wine tasting. In summary we had a great experience and I can only recommend to take this trip. Just one tipp: If you get easily sick on a car because of curves, then take some medicine with you. Manuel made some pauses to get fresh air, this also help me to be fit again.
