Meet a driver at your hotel in Porto for the 1.5-hour trip to the Douro Valley, pausing to stretch your legs in Peso da Régua, the capital of the Douro Valley.
Continue to Pinhão, where you'll have time to explore the beautiful village on your own, from the surrounding vineyards to the distinctive blue-and-white tile murals.
If you selected the Douro River cruise, this is where you'll board a Rabelo, a traditional cargo boat long used for Douro River transport. The hour-long ride takes you up a Tua River tributary and past Quinta da Romaneira winery, and then loops back to Pinhão.
Following your time in Pinhão, sit down to a lunch of traditional Douro cuisine paired with local wines at a valley villa, and then visit a pair of estates for tastings of award-winning ports and wines. The tour concludes with a return trip to Porto.
