    The trip was well organised, although I booked 2 tickets and because the minivan was full we weren’t able to sit together. I know that for some people is not a big deal but if you spent almost 5 hours in a car we would prefer to sit together, especially it was my partner’s birthday. The tour guide was excellent, very funny and knowledgeable. Also went beyond my expectations when he asked us for a lunch preference and I don’t like meat or salmon, he made sure that the restaurant prepare something different for me and it was delicious!

  • Pinhão: 2-Hour Rabelo Boat Tour with Audio Guide

    3. Pinhão: 2-Hour Rabelo Boat Tour with Audio Guide

    Navigate a unique river, in the heart of the oldest demarcated wine region of the world which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll start this adventure from Pinhao, pass under the Eiffel iron bridge going upstream to the Tua area where you will turn around to make the return journey. Along the way, see hills of terraced vineyards with no national roads or traffic in sight. Although you will do the same stretch up and down, it will appear different, as it is seen from two different points of view, and also because there is so much to see in this stunning region of the world. The traditional Rabelo boats have open and closed areas, so navigation can be comfortably be made in all kinds of weather, all year long.

    The audio guide is wonderful although it uses a lot of phone battery. It would be nice to have it also on the return. The views are spectacular and it was good to learn about the different wineries. Be sure to bring your own water as beverages are not provided.

  • Pinhão: Rabelo Boat 1-Hour Guided Tour

    4. Pinhão: Rabelo Boat 1-Hour Guided Tour

    Navigate on a unique river, in the heart of the oldest wine demarcated region in the world and also a UNESCO world heritage site. You start from Pinhão, pass under the Eiffel iron bridge going up stream until the Roncão area where you turn around and return to Pinhão. Along the way you’ll see hills of terraced vineyards until the river, with no national roads or traffic in sight. Although you do the same stretch up and down, it could very well be a different one, because seeing it in one direction and then on the other creates two completely different points of view and sights. The traditional rabelo boats have open and closed areas, so navigation can be comfortably made in all kinds of weather, all year long.

    Peaceful river cruise, a great change from other more active experiences. I actually didn't think I would like it very much, but I did. Definitely recommended.

    This winery tour of the Douro Valley was MUCH better than expected. Our guide, Hugo, was very informative, caring, and navigated the tricky roads with ease. The whole experience was planned to provide education and enjoyment for all. We walked into a vineyard and learned about the grape vines and varieties, explored vintage grape stomping and processing rooms, and tasted amazing varieties. Lunch was prepared in the most beautiful and idyllic setting. You will not regret booking this tour. Thank you, Hugo! - Bob & Sandy

  • Pinhão: Private Rabelo Boat Tour along the River Douro

    10. Pinhão: Private Rabelo Boat Tour along the River Douro

    Starting from Pinhão, pass under the iron bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel. Continue along the River Douro, admiring hills of terraced vineyards with no cars in sight. Take in the scenic views of the oldest wine region in the world, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once you reach the Roncão area, you will turn around and start the return journey to Pinhão. Although you will do the same stretch of the river on the way back, you will have a different point of view of the sights along the way. The traditional Rabelo boats have open and closed areas, so navigation can be comfortably made in all kinds of weather, all year long.

    It goes exactly the same route as the non private tour but I am really glad we did it this way. Got to talk with the captain and sit wherever we wanted. Also a smaller boat so closer to the nature.

This is a must-do tour. Ivo, our guide, was extremely knowledgable ... as well as being very entertaining. The two farms visited gave a good overview of the industry - one being a small farm, the other a very large scale operation. The lunch was top class too. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and can only highly recommend this activity.

Great trip to the heart of the Douro valley wine producing region with visit to small Port producing estate. Excellent add-on to a short stay on Porto.

Jam packed day, good stops for tastings, lovely restaurant for lunch and great boat ride. Couldn’t ask for more.

Beautiful day cruise, good food and great service. But it is a long day excursion.
