      Pleasant day tour
      The mini van was not the most comfortable and they fill all 8 seats (a couple was separated), so just something to note. The first stop was at a tavern in Amarante (had wine, cheese, bread), and got to do some sightseeing as well, which was great. The next stop was D'Origem (olive oil and wine), followed by the boat cruise (wasn't the most interesting in terms of scenery). We had lunch overlooking a vineyard (food was ok, wine was served as well), and we tasted some port. Overall a pleasant day tour.

      Stunning beauty
      Great experience, Pedro is such a nice and knowledgable guy, which is so fun to hang out with. One is simply overwhelmed by the immense beauty of the Douro valley, definitely something worth visiting.

      Great day in Douro Valley
      We had a great time on the Douro Valley tour with our guide Pedro. This was a fantastic day trip from Porto and one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal. Pedro was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable and made the experience great for our entire group. The wine was great to try and the views were spectacular. Would definitely recommend.

      Extraordinary Experience with Tiago! Don’t miss out
      Tiago, our tour guide extraordinaire, made our trip into the Douro Valley an exciting and unique adventure to complement the very robust tour itself. Not only was he charming and personable, but his comprehensive knowledge of the places we visited and his insight into the historical context of Portugal in the world (including his humor and great trivia tidbits- do you know what TEA is?) made the trip. We were only four-2 Americans and 2 French Canadians and he fluidly switched from English to French without a beat, even as he demonstrated his driving skills along the switchbacks on the Beautiful Road! The tour itself was also the most comprehensive of the river tours ( I had been on two competitors’ tours in past-both excellent but just not as extensive or personalized as this itinerary. And to top it off, after a full day of this delightful tour with Tiago (Aka Carlos-an inside joke), on learning of my interest in Art Nouveau/Art Deco, Tiago went above and beyond AFTER the tour to assist my sister and me to find the Imperial hotel (AKA McDonald’s) and 31 January Street! To say this tour with Tiago was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip says it all.

      More to it than the wine and valley
      Very nice tour, went in expecting to have some wine and looking at some valleys not sure about how the experience would play out. To start the tour was small with only 8 people in the bus and the guide (Tiago), which was nice. The guide talked a bit during the drive, interesting stuff. And yes the driving is dominating this tour, you will sit for a long time in a bus between the stops. The bus however was comfortable and the information from the guide was interesting and kept me awake. As the stops went by and the wine kept being drunk, the bus also got more jolly. The stops were all good as well. Nice to try some local ham and wine. I think the takeaway from the experience was neither in the wine or food (everything we drank and ate was fine) but that it was just a fun experience and it was fun to experience it with a group of strangers, and the views were really beautiful. A big bonus was a stop at a cherry tree to pick fresh cherries! I would pay for a wine drinking and fruit picking tour (sad i didn't get to pick any fresh figs). A tip to Touch Tours ;)

      Fun day exploring Duoro valley
      This was a great way to explore the Douro valley highlighting the beautiful scenery and wine of the region. The first winery had excellent wine and olive oil and a very enthusiastic guide. The boat cruise had gorgeous views of the river. Tours are done in small groups (ours was 6 people plus the tour guide) which was an awesome way to meet new people. The second winery had a great port tasting. Overall, views were incredible and the food and drink was worth the trip. A few notes and recommendations from our experience - it’s a long drive and it’s very windy roads up and down a mountain. If you get motion sick at all, be prepared with some remedies. Pack water as it was only available at one of the 3 stops. While someone was able to explain about some of the wine at one of the stops, there wasn’t someone available or explanations on the wine at all. This is a great tour to explore the region! If you’re looking to focus only on wine, you might seek other options. Our tour guide Jose was very enthusiastic and helpful. He shared a lot of background and history on the culture and region which was a nice touch. My only note is the tour company definitely has a strict timeline which made some of the stops and drives in between feel a little rushed. Not a reflection on Jose, but more the overall operations. A more relaxed feel would have been preferred by our group.

      Pedro's Tours
      Great day out in the Douro region. Pedro is a fun guy who shares stories and knows the area well. We were the first ones at the vineyard at the top of the hill and also visited the other places when it was quieter. Served a number of glasses of wine and port and enjoyed a lovely day doing something different. Pedro likes to drive quickly though and so prepare for a fun ride to get to the vineyards! Recommended

      Ricardo is a fabulous guide!
      Ricardo was an absolutely fantastic guide and we had a brilliant day on the particular trip. We included the duoro valley cruise which was beautiful and we had purchased a bottle from the previous winery to drink on the boat. They opened it and provide little cups. Lunch was in a stunning setting and was delicious. Decent price for a full day trip with meat, cheese and bread breakfast, with wine, wine tasting, cruise and lunch with wine and port pairing.

      Grand day out !
      We had a great trip with Americo on Monday. Our family party of three was joined by another family of three from Ireland. The activities were well paced and enjoyable, and we felt we got a good sense of the Douro by day’s end. Americo was a very friendly, capable and informative guide. Happy to recommend !

      A great day in the Douro valley
      What a great tour of the douro valley! Excellent and clear communication with the company and with Pedro, our wonderful and knowledgeable guide. We sampled 7 wines and 3 ports, had a very nice lunch and also sampled lots of delicious food over the day - meats, cheese, amonds, honey and olive oil, with no "hard sell". The white and red vino verde with local cheese and meats at 9:20 am in the village of Amarante was a great way to get to know the two other couples on the tour. Beautiful scenery and a most enjoyable day, which I would thoroughly recommend.

      This was a beautiful way to see this special area. Be prepared for driving. At first we were not going to go on the cruise but decided to do it and really really enjoyed the beauty from this view also.

      Beautiful Day in the Douro Valley.
      We had a brilliant day exploring the Douro with our guide. Wine tasting, olive oil sampling, river cruise, beautiful lunch under the trees of a manor house and to top it off. Port tasting. Our guide had a passion for the area and was very knowledgeable. Could not recommend this tour more highly.

    Enjoyed our tour guide immensely! Such a nice guy with a bounty of historical knowledge. He was able to answer the majority of our questions, had a great personality, and we enjoyed our day trip as a result.
    The only reason I didn’t give this company LESS stars is because we had an outstanding tour guide. A narrow car with 5 seats (including the driver) is way too small and very uncomfortable for 5 adults.
    We sat hip to hip, and shoulder to shoulder (had to bend them forward to fit), we were physically sore by the end of the day.
    Careful when booking tours for a party of 4, as you may end up in a car that is too small - and you won’t know until they show up.

    Dears, thank you very much for your feedback. It is very important for us. We really appreciate your consideration regarding our guide, he feels very very happy :) thank you. Regarding the car, we do understand your feedback. Let us kindly share with you we believe our small group and personalized tours are much more enjoyable than those overly big group excursions. In this regard we provide short distance tours in comfortable Mercedes Car or Mini Van. By our five years experience and respective feedback we consider this kind of 5 people vehicle is appropriate for 1 guide plus 4 adults. But we do respect your opinion and off course we will focus our full attention on this specific subject. Again, thank you. We hope to welcome you again :)

    The excursion to these beautiful towns was awesome! Perfect spots for a day trip from Porto. Our tour guide, Alex (the great!!), was amazing. His English was great so communication was easy, he had answers to our questions, gave us a lot of cool facts and told us stories about Portugal. He was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and the best tour guide!

    We just had this tour today. It was a beautiful day and our tour guide Alex Vincent was very friendly and professional. Coimbra University library was a must see
    and Aveiro cruise was also very nice. With this tour we were able to visit two beautiful places in one day, otherwise we might only be able to visit one place in a day. So I highly recommend this tour!

    Beautiful day in Coimbra, started by a beautiful cafe and then the shopping area, which was beautiful. Proceeded to the University area to see the library and palace, amust see, very beautiful. Ended our day in the sea town of Aveiro. We had lunch in a great cafe and then did a boat ride along the canal, worth doing. Its a great way to see more of the town. Highly recommend this tour!

    Our guide, Tiago, was prompt in picking us up from the hotel, was an excellent driver and showed us the university at Coimbra and then Portugal's Venice, Aveiro. The tour was conducted in a less than perfect weather day, but Taigo was accommodating and made sure we saw all that was available. He had umbrellas waiting for us. Tiago gave us time to explore on our own, and even treated us to coffee and a regional pastry at the end of the tour. Personally, I did not find the attractions to be that exciting and Aveiro does not compare to Venice. Having said that, Tiago and Touch Tours did a great job, I just think the tour was not my cup of tea. I would certainly look into using them for their other tour offerings.

    Tiago took us on this lovely tour of Aveiro and Coimbra. He was very punctual and accommodating and the car was very comfortable. We were "tiny bit" hungover and it was so great to have someone manage all the details and be able to just wander around beautiful spaces and sights all day.
