A must for those on the port tasting trail. Although I highly recommend you get your hotel to organise a driver - both because you'll have a lot to drink and the roads are treacherous.

We had a wonderful experience in this beautiful corner of the Douro Valley. We had the opportunity to taste for free two glasses of excelent Port wine and we had an interesting chat with the staff, very prepared and friendly. We had not the chance to complete the full experience because it was too hot to walk in the vineyards! Interesting the wine shop, where you can purchase some bottles of superb Vintage Port to bring back home.

The mp3 tour allows you to explore the vineyards at your own pace and is very interesting. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable and the ports are superb. And the views are amazing. Do not try to hike in this area though (it is quite perilous) as there are no trails and the roads are very narrow and people drive at very high speeds.
