Douro Valley tour
From US$114.98
Overview
The UNESCO-listed Douro Valley is famed for its port wine, but with countless wineries to choose from, exploring the region without a guide can be overwhelming. This tour ensures you'll experience the Douro Valley at its very best, by dining on Douro cuisine at a celebrated villa and tasting award-winning bottles at two estates. To see the vineyard-lined Douro River from the water, upgrade to enjoy a cruise by traditional Rabelo boat.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Porto for the 1.5-hour trip to the Douro Valley.

Continue to Pinhão, where you'll have time to explore the beautiful village on your own, from the surrounding vineyards to the distinctive blue-and-white tile murals.

If you selected the Douro River cruise, this is where you'll board a Rabelo, a traditional cargo boat long used for Douro River transport. The hour-long ride takes you up a Tua River tributary and past Quinta da Romaneira winery, and then loops back to Pinhão.

Either before or after your cruise (if you've upgraded), you'll pop into one of the wineries on the agenda for the day before lunch. 

For lunch, sit down to a lunch of traditional Douro cuisine paired with local wines at a popular restaurant, and then visit another estate for tastings of award-winning ports and wines. The tour concludes with a return trip to Porto.

Fun and lovely experience

Our tour guide Paula was really nice and friendly. Even though it was foggy in the morning, she was able to entertain us. The first winery had small museum-ish setup. We missed the view outside, which was supposely amazing, but they had really good wine...More

I believe either the cruise or the lunch are optional. Can’t recall, sorry. We booked on viatour and it was made clear there.

Unfortunately I can't remember exactly which ones we visited although they were quite good and I would suggest contacting the tour operator to confirm as I do believe that they change the wineries some times.

They have other wines not just port wines! You will have the opportunity to taste red and white wine.
