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! Michela & David

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!

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.

This tour was excellent. Pedro Madeira is a gracious and knowledgable guide, who drives with great skill and restraint (believe me that’s important given the rugged terrain and narrow roads in the valley). Overall the tour is a good mix of wine tasting, home cooked meal, boat tour, history lesson and truly stunning views. I’d do it again!
