Let’s be clear. Yes, you could certainly do all the things included in this tour on your own. And if you did, you would end up spending at LEAST what you pay for this tour. And having a stressful time of it. A visitor simply could not manage to do it in one day! Not to mention the ease of it all….
Getting picked up in a spotless Mercedes van equipped with appropriate car seats for the tiny group members. Being taken to little gems along the way that you would never find. (Pastry shops in Amarante.) A tour of an amazing vineyard (Sandeman). Lunch at Quinta de La Rosa, our best meal in Portugal. A boat excursion on the Douro. No parking worries. No route worries. We spent a wonderful day, enjoying each other and the beautiful Douro Valley.
I must say, the highlight of the day was our guide, José. This man handled challenging weather for part of the day, terrible traffic (a serious car accident stopped traffic) and the very wiggly, sometimes crying group members with kindness and patience. As the timetable changed throughout the day, José would call ahead to destinations to ensure that when we did arrive, there would be space available for our group and no waiting. So knowledgeable! So professional! We felt like we were being shown around by a dear family friend who delights in sharing his country with visitors.
We have taken tours in several countries and José is among the very best guides we have experienced. This was our first Viator tour. It was perfect.

Our tour to the Duoro Valley was much nicer than we expected. Our guide, Diana, was the best! Her knowledge and suggestions to include the boat ride, wine tasting, and elegant lunch overlooking the vineyards were perfect. If you book this tour ask for Diana!!

I booked a private tour of Douro Valley with lunch, wine, porto and olive oil tasting, and a river cruise, the day before with Claudia from Meridian4people was great. Very knowledgeable, patient and accommodating. On the day of the tour my guide was Claudio Silva and he was on time and transformed a rainy day into the best setting for what turned out to be a perfect day! The views and scenic routes from Porto to Douro Valley were beautiful, my guide was impressively well informed and very friendly and we had great conversations throughout the entire day. The river cruise was very beautiful and relaxing with gorgeous along the river. We had lunch at Casa dos Barros in the town of Sabrosa, where Ferdinand Magellan was born, and this has to be one the most beautiful places in Douro: the food was great, the porto tasting too and the whole experience was a feast of my senses. In Pinhão we visited D’Origem winery and olive farm/museum with wine and olive oil tasting. It’s a tour you must do when in Porto which I highly recommend. Thank you Claudio for a wonderful day.
