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

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

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 also will be able to walk through the vineyard and of course taste more 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.

Note: We do tours in French and Portuguese, but only for private tours, any doubts contact me...

The best experience in Porto !!! Manuel explained all the history and story about the winery in Dudro valley, it’s a fantastic experience. We had good food, good wine, good conversation. We opened literally 4 bottles of wine in the lunch and talk about the culture, history, people, marketing, etc. I think he did what is said “your happiness is my happiness”. Only one tip about this trip is “ bring nothing but your curiosity to this wonderful journey” Highly recommend

This experience was everything I was hoping for, the Douro Valley is a incredible place and Manuel made it even more unforgettable with the places he took us. Everyone was really worried about our safety during the pandemic and all of the Golden rules were followed during the whole experience. This was really a day to not forget and all the places seen took my breath away! I really recommend this to everyone who comes to Porto and wants to have a really special day here.

Manuel promises memories and this is exactly what he delivers. He is incredibly passionate about what he does. During his experience we saw places that others bigger tours could not show. It's amazing how exclusive this day felt. Manuel also took lots of beautiful pictures of us and shared them with us as soon as the experience ended. We followed every sanitary recommendation and therefore felt very safe from start to finish. In my opinion, this is the best possible way to visit the Douro Valley. I strongly recommend it to literally everyone. You cannot miss it.

We had a very special experience on this wine trip! All the food and wines were delicious and Manuel took us to beautiful view points and locations. Very good value for the full day we had! We especially enjoyed the boat trip with snacks and the visit to a smaller, family owned winery. All the pics you get after the trip really make it into a special experience!

Wow - there are not enough words to express how great this tour was. Everything was absolutely perfect and so much fun. We were already staying in Douro for my 30th birthday so Manuel arranged to pick us in a convertible (+ a van to accommodate the whole group safely). Each part of the experience itself was amazing but what was even better was not having to worry about the logistics of any of it. Manuel and his son were so personable and made sure that everything ran smoothly. This was such an unforgettable day and I can't recommend it enough. We will definitely be back! Obrigada!

Very thankful for the ability to have such an incredible and memorable experience, especially during these difficult travel times. The Douro Valley is absolutely stunning, and I would never have been able to experience it like this on my own. It was the perfect blend of great history, views, wine, and food with welcoming and gracious hosts along the way. Manuel was an amazing guide throughout the whole experience - providing information about the region and wine, and delivering it in the form of engaging conversation. Would recommend this special experience to anyone, and would book again with Manuel in the future!
