We really enjoyed our day visiting the Douro and seeing two vineyards. At the first vineyard we had a tour of the estate and then tasted 3 ports, the guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. After the tasting we had a nice lunch which was accompanied by a red and white wine. We were then taken to the boat trip on the Douro- this was nice but we were disappointed that our tour group was amalgamated with 2 other groups for the trip meaning the boat was quite busy and we were unable to get an outside seat. For our last visit we went to the vineyard which makes Kopke Port among other varieties. The tour here was very rushed and again we were joined by other tour groups. We had a lovely day but were disappointed that the tour was not as shown on the website which described it as a small group.

What an amazing day! Definitely recommend to go on a Sunday as our guide told us that is when there is the least amount of traffic as it is a bit far. We stopped at a cute little town before heading to our destinations. The wine at the first vineyard was delicious and the lunch was so yummy! The boat ride was nothing too special but enjoyable right after lunch. The ride down to the boat ride after lunch is a bit windy but gorgeous views. The second vineyard was a smaller one but the wine was delicious nonetheless. Great pictures spot at this vineyard as well.
