Unique experience and the best staff !
Aug 2021
I made the tour with my wife, but unfortunately, I started to feel a bit sick, and I couldn't enjoy all the perks offered by the tour. But, even though, I had such a situation, the staff (Nuno and Célia) were giving me support through all the tour to try to make me feel better... they are the best tour guides that I have the chance to be with... they even found me a medicine that made me feel better and I could carry on up to the end of the tour!!! I truly recommend the tour, not only for the experience that is great but for the kind staff that will provide you with a UNIQUE experience!

Amazing time, best activity in Porto

Amazing tour! Went with my husband on our honeymoon and this tour was the best part of the trip. Amazing wine, history, boat ride and even a dessert on board! DO NOT MISS this tour if going to Porto. Amazing service and great tour guide.

Must do it again!
Jun 2021 • Friends
We can visit Douro Valley by the books, photos and boat cruises...
 And we can (and may) go there with DOURO FIRST: the best way to see and feel the warm and at the same time the roughness  of Douro Valley way of life and its beauties.
. Fantastic our Driver/Guide with a fluent, fun and gentle  conversation;
. Wonderful the homemade lunch in a local farm;
. Out of breath, the landscape above the river Douro and during the van driving;
. Amazing the little boat cruise in the river;
. And at last, the excelent experience with the wines we taste!

I totally recommend Douro First!

Honeymoon Experience
Sep 2020 • Couples
We attended the Wine Tasting and Lunch Tour today, as part of our honeymoon in Portugal, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our guide, Nuno, picked us up from our hotel and was with us all day. He provided a lot of insight into the Douro region, wine-making and local culture in general. We absolutely enjoyed sampling wine and port directly from the producers, and were able to purchase products to take home at a great price. We were also treated to lunch by the lovely Dora, who welcomed us and made us feel like part of the family. A river cruise in the late afternoon was a lovely way to conclude the tour, and we enjoyed some beautiful sights accompanied by a glass of port and local pastries.

COVID safety protocols were followed at all times, which made us feel very reassured.

Well done to Douro Tours for professional, friendly and safe experience, and to Nuno for a very pleasant and memorable day!

Service, Response and refund
Mar 2020
Wanted to give credit to this company for their exemplary service in booking then having to cancel due to new travel restrictions. They gave us a full refund and their communication was excellent. I would recommend as trustworthy wherever you are booking from. Cannot wait to thank them in person when we next get to visit Porto!

A great day out - nice drive wonderful wine and port tasting. All authentic family-run friendly dogs outside
Lunch was in a small new hotel/guest house - lunch was homemade and served in a quaint country kitchen. Picked lemons and oranges from trees
The trip down the Douro river was great - the weather was sunny and warm
Idyllic - I can't thank Filip enough He was so knowledgeable and nothing was any trouble for him Great guy! thank you

Fantastic day trip in Douro Valley
Feb 2020
We had a great day with Pedro Madeira, our guide who brought us to the Douro Valley from Porto. It takes 100 km to arrive at the Valley, so be prepared for a long day. Pedro was the perfect host for this trip, we owe him many thanks. Wine tasting, an excellent lunch was part of the experience. We look back at a great event.
Bear in mind, however, that this is advertised as a private tour, and it is not!!

Thank you for your feedback, we care a lot about the satisfaction of our customers. I would like to apologize for the announcement that said 'private', because I did not know the operation of the tripadvisor platform well. We sell 2 tours and only refer to 1 of them as private, we put it in the name, not knowing that it should be in the tour options. We've already changed the options. Thanks for our help.

Douro First Tour
Oct 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our Douro First Tour from Porto by car to the Douro Valley. We were a group of four, joined by another group of two. Our driver and guide Philip was just amazing as our host for the day – incredibly hospitable, polite and knowledgeable. He knew so much about the valley, its history, and beyond. He offered many nice touches that made the day very special and one to remember. We highly recommend the Douro First tour of the Douro Valley and especially if you have the opportunity to have Philip as your guide. The day was a highlight in our nine day trip to Portugal!

Very informative, very nice tour. The only complain we have is the size of the minivan. 7 people were squeezed in - and we got in the last row, which was quite tight for my husband. We got car sick by the end of the trip.
