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, forget the company tours doing always the same, we are personalized to give you a lifetime experience, simple as that...

We start to see the most breathtaking views in Douro Valley in a river cruize only for our private group with guides, all this with some snacks and drinks from Douro.

Next we will visit the first winery, the Oldest Wine House in Douro Est.1638, learn what is done in the vineyards, connect the vineyard to the university with new scientific studies, see the best of the technology that is being used in the wine production.
We will learn also about table wines, not only about Porto wine like in the other tours.
We also will be able to walk through the vineyard and of course taste their wines.

Then we will visit the authentic Douro, the Douro from the locals, the less touristy Douro and have lunch at a second winery, to get to know more about the wines of the small producers. It will be another very special moment with lunch in the garden.

All this in a day that i promise, will be memorable for you.

Amazing experience! Well worth the day. Very thoughtfully organized. Even in the rain we got to experience every aspect and were still very comfortable. The views of the valley were incredible and the tours were interesting and informative. You will get your fill of great port, wine, and food. Our guide Manuel was very friendly and passionate

Manuel’s experience was fantastic. Our group was awesome and the pace was great. We visited two vineyards (as opposed to doing a lightning round of tastings) and got to spend quality time at each place. Our group ended up connecting really well. Highly recommend doing this experience. We’d definitely do it again.

A special day in a magical location. This is truly an experience from a local family that cares about you having a great time. Everything was great but our lunch overlooking the vineyard was very special and will be our long lasting memory!! Do not hesitate to book this experience.

If you are thinking of taking a day trip to the Douro Valley, book this tour. I loved this experience. Manuel and his family did a great job curating a very organized, safe, authentic, and fun experience. The wine country is so gorgeous and we got to see it first hand from the drive through the area as well as the boat ride - the snacks and port tonics were a nice touch too! I really enjoyed the wine tasting at Kopke, which included a walk through the vines. The lunch at the gorgeous estate was delicious and a great way to the end the day - the port was flowing! I had a great time making some news friends - thank you Manuel and Family for a great day!

This was one of the most memorable experiences of our entire trip to Portugal, we absolutely loved it! The other tour guests were lovely. Manu and the family - João, Antonio, Paulo were kind, friendly, and very accommodating! They put a lot of thought into making this a beautiful experience and we would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about the region and the wonderful people of Portugal.
