    We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip into the Douro Valley - such a wonderful way to learn more about wine and port production and to experience this amazing landscape. Paolo, our driver and guide, was so kind and knowlegeable.
    I loved eating our lunch under the walnut trees in the first winery we visited. The wines that accompanied our meal were good, as was the port that we tasted. The visit to an organic winery was interesting. As well as wines, we also tasted olive oil and hree different sorts of honey.
    All in all, this was and excellent and informative trip and I can thoroughly recommend it.

    The place is wonderful. The driver (Valdemar) was very thoughtful, told nice histories about the places that we visited. We were in a group of 5, the hole day was very pleasant. We definitely recommend it.

    A very chill and relaxed tour down the river. We'd already spent a couple days in the city and this really felt like a beautiful way to see Porto from a different perspective. It rained a bit but that didn't ruin our fun. A wonderful experience!

    We are not sure how many boat tours there are in Porto, but it is impossible to imagine a better experience than the one we had with Douro Captain and in particular, Captain Ricardo. Our family of four spent a week in Portugal and by far this private sunset boat tour was the highlight of our trip. Not just because of the stunning sites to see, but because of the personal touch and professional attention to details by Ricardo. It's tough enough to entertain two adults from Florida on a trip like this, but add in two teenagers who love their cell phones more than museum or church tours and you could have your hands full. So imagine the excitement in our eyes and hearts when our children were as engaged on this excursion as we were. The generous wine that was poured and the awesome, home-made charcuterie board that we enjoyed while cruising was a highly recommended touch. But how do you place a value on genuine, honest, real life story-telling from a local captain on his sailboat? Our adventure was special because of Ricardo and his love of his craft and country. It is impossible to think there is a more wonderful experience out there on the water of Porto.

    This tour is a must if you ever visit Porto!
    Pedro was our tour guide for the day and he was superb throughout! Full of facts and information about all aspects of the trip as well as historic facts etc. the tour had 8 of us for the whole day and we made such good friends with the other 4 people. The tour was thoroughly organised including pickup on time, stop off for morning coffee break, boat trip on the old boats, followed by a visit to Croft Port including nibbles snd tastings. Then on to a remote restaurant which they’d sourced for a delicious 3 course lunch with wine and the most amazing panoramic views!! Onwards to our 2nd wine tasting and totally relaxed by now samplings further delights!! And finally back to our drop off at our apartment. It’s worth every penny as Pedro worked hard all day to ensure we had a great time so thank you and if we visit porto again we shall book your tour 👍🙏

    Our time with Raul made our short stay in Porto absolutely magical. He was a wealth of knowledge, was kind, fun, and an enthusiastic photographer. It felt like hanging out with a wonderful new friend who happens to be excellent at sailing!

    Nice trip but windows could have been more clean as we decided to stay inside because it was a bit windy and cold. But nice trip and beautiful views.

    Relaxing boat ride with beautiful scenery along a river covered by vineyards. The town is small, but for a short visit, it's about the right size.

    The Douro Valley trip was amazing and Gustavo was an excellent host. My husband and I took in the scenery, enjoyed a very tasty lunch along the way, a boat ride, and a visit to an outstanding vineyard all in the luxury of a clean Jaguar. Gustavo’s deep interest in Portugal’s history and politics added to our understanding of the valley. I highly recommend this tour — your eyes won’t believe the magical beauty!
