We're going to be in Oporto for four nights around the Festa and are planning an overnight in the Pinhao area to see some Quintas. We're a young(ish) wine-centric couple and would love some advice on our itinerary:
Train to Pinhao (we can rent a car but this sounds like the best way?)
Afternoon boat tour
Overnight Quinta do Portal guest house
In between, we want to see some more quintas and eat some good local cuisine.
Should we eat at the guesthouse?
Are there other quintas that we can stop to tour between Pinhao and Portal (we will probably take a taxi).
Should we rent a car to get a better experience?
Any other advice is totally welcome!
