A friend and I decided last minute to take this tour before we left Porto, it ended up being the best part of our time in Porto! We called Joao and Fernando the night before and said they would pick us up from our Hostel the next morning! The minute we met them we felt like it was going to be a nice relaxed day! It ended up being my friend and I plus a couple from our hostel, the guys gave us options as far as our first stop of the day. We ended up stopping in a small town and the guys picked up a few items to make a picnic at an AMAZING lookout!!!! We had traditional Portuguese food and were able to enjoy the views in peace without a bunch of tourists! Then they took us to a local family owned vineyard. At this point in our time in Porto we had been to our fair share of Port wine vineyards but this was by far the best!!!!!!!! We toured the vineyard and then had lunch with the family who owned the vineyard. It was the best! They made us feel like we were part of the family! We then were able to taste a handful of different port wines that they produce. It was an absolutly amazing lunch, not only the company but the traditional Portuguese food! So much better than any restaurant we could have gone to! We then made our way onto the other side of the river to another lookout, where we shared a bottle of Port wine that the guys picked up at the vineyard. What better way to spend an hour in the afternoon than high in the vineyards overlooking the Douro River with a glass of Port wine?! The guys were awesome and made the day even better!! I will take this tour again next time I visit Porto!!
