Overview
Indulge in the Douro Valley’s luxuriant food and wine culture on this full-day small-group tour of the Douro with lunch. After departing from Porto by minibus, you’ll sweep through the Douro’s winding roads as you enter the valley. With terraced vineyards on either side of you, you’ll visit esteemed wineries and the Douro’s most captivating cities: Amarante, Lamego, Régua and Pinhão, the heart of the Alto Douro. Along the way you’ll enjoy lunch and learn about the Douro’s wine programs, people and culinary heritage.
What to Expect

Start your tour around 08h30 am and explore the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site because wine has been produced here by traditional landholders in the for some 2,000 years. The oldest demarcated region of the world where outstanding wines, including Port Wine are produced.

We will pick you up from you hotel (in Porto or Vila Nova de Gaia) and drive through the Douro Valley to Galafura  a small village in the heart of the Douro Valley.

Our first stop is in Amarante. This city becomes very important in history after S. Gonçalo´s arrival (1187-1259) - one of the most renowned saints in the cristian history. He settled himself here after his pilgrimage through Rome and Jerusalem making this city an important religious stop in Portugal. You may visit the convent and church, but also its beautiful bridge and Historical Center.

Continue this trip to Galafura, the next stop! Galafura is a small village near Peso da Régua.

On the way stop to see The Miradouro de São Leonardo de Galafura near Covelinhas, parish of Galafura. From the top of its 640 meters high you have a privileged view over the river Douro and the surrounding landscape. This is one of the highlights of your day! Make sure you take your camera and don´t miss anything!

You will also find here a geodesic landmark as this is the highest place in the area.

After all the contemplation it´s time for a fantastic lunch in a family owned restaurant where food is homemade and drinks during lunch are also included.

The tour continues to Pinhão one of the most beautiful and chaming villages of this region. Stop for a scenical relaxing cruise (an hour panoramic cruise). The views to the vineyards offered are just gorgeous! Enjoy! 

End your day with a fantastic visit to a local wine estate (we usually visit a renowned brand), where you will have the opportunity to also taste wine and learn a lot about how the precious Port Wine is grown. 

The tour ends in Porto 6:30pm.

A DRIVER, not a guide...

This tour did not fulfill half of the advertised activities - such as the visit to Lamego Sancturay and the Pinhao train station or the snack accompanying the wine tasting... Our guide, Daniel, was no more than a driver - he did not explain anything...More
