Small Group Douro Wine Valley Tour with Lunch and Wine Tasting
$103.01
Overview
Enjoy a full day tour in the region of Douro, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Stop in the small villages of the Douro Region during the tour, and learn about the history, culture and people that live in this region. Lunch included in a small, local restaurant, as well as a visit to two Portuguese Port Wine and Wine producer (winery, cellars and vineyards) with tastings.
What to Expect
This full day tour is an authentic trip to one of the most beautiful landscapes in Northern Portugal, with a direct contact with one of oldest traditions in the country: the wine production. The Douro region stands out not only for its natural beauty and for its famous terraced vineyards, but also for the wine producing that characterizes this region of Portugal. Considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Douro is a place you have to see for anyone visiting the city of Porto.

In this tour the group leaves Porto by van towards Douro. The first stop is in the village of “Amarante”, where'll you make a visit to the city centre. The trip goes on, and to satiate your appetitie, you'll make a stop in the village of “Pinhão” to have a delicious lunch in a local restaurant. Before or after lunch there's the possibility of doing a 1 hour boat cruise (on a typical "Rabelo" boat).

During the afternoon the tour continues towards the Region of Douro Valley. Between the landscapes that surround the Douro River you'll arrive in the heart of this magnificent region. There are some local Port Wine producers that live here, so you'll visit two different wineries that produce port and other kinds of wines. This part of the tour delves deep into the authentic manufacturing process, and nothing caps off a visit to the vineyards and the winery with a tasting in the end.

With the tour almost over, it'll be time to head back to Porto again.

We were 4 family members who signed up for the full day Duoro Valley tour from Porto. We were picked up by the small van, and unfortunately the back seats (the only ones remaining besides the front next to the guide/driver) were not too comfortable,...More
