This was simply a stunning way to spend our evening. Barbara (& Lua, the dog!) was absolutely amazing - knowledgable, and a fantastic host. We were on board the sailing boat and cruised up the Douro via motor. It was then really special to sail back and my wife & I sat out the front of the boat and enjoyed the peace and sunset. Would highly recommend and worth every penny. I wouldn’t consider any of the other boat tours!

Nice and peaceful late afternoon ride up and down the river. Learned a bit about the vineyards in the area and were treated to some port during the ride! If you go in the summer, would recommend going in the morning as it will be a bit cooler.

No wonder Anima Durius is #1 in Pinhao. What a glorious and informative "cruise" up and down the Douro River. My wife and I learned so much about the region. Paulo (and his little dog) were fabulous hosts! Great wine from his vineyard, great tales about the history of the Valley, and the 2 hours went by way too fast. You should not miss this "adventure" ;-) [at 5-10 miles/hour] and hoping that when you go there will be a little wind so you can take his sailboat. It was so hot and sunny, we were very glad he offered us his other boat with a top. Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!!

After the intense heat, and seeing how many people were being crammed into the boats on the river, we decided to opt for a private tour, and it was definitely a great decision. Our captain Paulo and his beautiful dog collected us from the port right outside our hotel, and we set off on a 2 hour tour down the river. Paulo stopped to allow us to have a dip in the river which was very welcome in the 46 degree heat. It was great chatting with Paulo, and finding out that he actually went to university in my city in the UK (what are the chances?!). Thank you for a great trip Paulo, and I would highly recommend to everybody.

My husband and I had the Two Hours Unbelievable cruise with our tour guide and captain Paulo. He was such a wonderful captain. He gave us enough information through the cruise about the history of the vineyards without overwhelming us with information. It was so peaceful and beautiful on that ship with no noise except the birds singing. The contrast of the Valley with the beautiful blue sky was a sight never to forget. Anyone who visits this region should take a private tour, this is an experience to enjoy without the crows. Thank you Paulo for giving us the experience of our life.
