From Porto: Douro Valley, Wine Tasting, and Cruise
- Transportation included
- Duration: 9 hours
Brilliant trip by Norberto! He picked us up from our hotel on time and was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Dropped us off at the start of the Paiva walkway and was there to meet us at the end to take us to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for a lovely lunch. We were then driven to Aveiro for a walk around the town (with a market) and had a nice 45 minute trip on a ‘gondola’ before making our way on to our final stop for the day, Costa Nova, with its brightly painted fishermens cottages.
We had an amazing day out in the Douro Valley. Our guide, Tiago, was very knowledgeable and great fun. We got to try lots of wines and I loved being able to see the difference between a large scale Port producer and a small, family-run winery. Also, the lunch restaurant was lovely and even able to make a good vegetarian lunch for us - something that is pretty rare in Portugal! All in all, it was a great day and all coronavirus precautions were taken.
Nous avons choisi de faire la visite française début janvier. Nous étions seulement 4, une visite super personnalisée, le guide était top, la visité a duré 1h30 au lieu de 45 min. Pedro parlait parfaitement français, c'est un guide passionné et passionnant. Merci pour cette visite !
Es war ein ganz besonderer Abend für uns. Aufgrund der aktuellen Situation waren wir die einzigen Gäste und konnten somit viel über den Fado erfragen und uns mit den Künstlern unterhalten, die sich auch für ein solch bescheidenes Publikum sehr bemüht haben. Toll.
Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Great to see the landscape and scenery of the region. You experience lots of what Douro has to offer in such a small time frame. We were genuinely surprised at the amount to eat and drink through the day.
