Escape the city and spend the day exploring Porto’s world-famous Douro region on a tour that lets you cover more sights in less time. Unlike typical Douro tours, this one includes a ride in a traditional rabelo boat, and stops at two lookout points that you may not have heard of if traveling on your own. Plus, included hotel pickup and drop-off mean you don’t have to worry about finding a meeting point.

Porto is replete with spectacular lookout points, but ascending to them alone can often be a difficult task. Travel between vantage points with ease on a full-day tour that reveals the best of the Douro Valley. In a small group limited to eight people, you’ll see the area from different perspectives on a coach and boat; benefit from the insider knowledge of your guide; and stop to explore vineyards and taste wine. Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

Definitely worth your time when visiting Porto! We had an amazing day, special thanks to our driver: Filip! Filip did an excellent job both driving and sharing his knowledge of the Douro river and the various locations we visited. Greetings from the Netherlands.
