We were recommended this by some friends who had been with them a few weeks earlier. It was end of season so a bit chilly but that did not stand in the way of our having a good time. Roy (sp?) spoke great english (having been born in north London) and was entertaining and knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. Antonio kept us away from the river bank and other boats. What more could one ask for? Well, good food and wine - which is what we had. All in all a great day out. Recommended.

My wife and I had a fabulous day trip on our honeymoon with Douro a Vela. We took a sail boat up the Douro River to a winery visit at Quinta Do Bomfim. The boat was great and everyone at the company was fabulous, especially RUI who was a great tour guide along the ride - providing us with knowledge of the area and wineries - along with glasses of port, hats to protect us from the sun and blankets to keep us warm form the wind. We highly recommend Douro a Vela

We were not able to join these lovely people for a boat trip but wanted to share how amazing they were in communicating with us! Our family of six (perhaps more might make it...) is headed to the Douro Valley and I was crafting an unforgettable memory for my clan. Antonio sent us all shorts of information and worked very hard to be within our budget. (Alas, we are a family with six kiddos, and #5 is headed off to college in the fall...my husband appropriately felt that this was an adventure that the two of us should save for later!) I am confident that if you reach out, they will do their very best to accommodate you. As for my sweetheart and I, Douro a Vela will be seeing us in a few years!

It was amazing all the views we had from the boat and the great wine that they serve on board for free. We had a great time! I've spent my birthday afternoon on the boat having laughs with my friends and enjoying amazing views! We still had time to take pictures with sailor hats on 😆 The guys are very nice and they take us nice pictures too.
This experience it's a bit expensive but it's totally worth it!
I contacted them by email and it was all very well arranged! Next time we go for the one with the meal on board in summer time!

As vistas do barco são espectaculares, apreciamos o vale do Douro com as suas videiras, bom vinho a bordo e umas quantas gargalhadas com os amigos e marinheiros a bordo que por sinal são super simpáticos. Ainda houve tempo para tirar umas fotografias com chapéu de marinheiro!
Não é uma experiência barata mas vale mesmo mesmo a pena! O passeio com refeição a bordo talvez seja uma experiência a pensar numa próxima vez. Apreciar o pôr do sol do barco deve ser outra maravilha!
Recomendo 100%!

Very warm welcome from Antonio and we were off. Delightful way to see the Douro River and stunning countryside and vineyards while sipping chilled port and enjoying delicious picnic lunch. Has to be the most relaxing and pleasant way to spend a few hours. Remember to bring a hat - which I didn't do but Antonio provide me with a choice of perfect candidates. Thank you!
