Pietro great tour guide! Totally recommended trip to the douro valley! The drive there is really great too! Wine tasting and lunch were delicious, as was the Rabelo ride a great experience! Definitely worth it! (The first wine tasting with lunch was much better, as it was a smaller winery and a lot was explained about the differences from port wine (you could also taste the differently aged port wines), the second was quite large but also interesting. But less focus on the wine itself but rather on the system)

I highly recommend this tour. We had an amazing day with Mario the tour guid and Manuel the driver. Mario was just perfect knowing a lot about history of the valley and a lot of things around the area.. the food and wine you are going to taste is delicious and for the price you pay is high service. They give you the chance to go also on a typical river boat and you can take nice pictures of the Douro valley from the river.

Very well organized and conducted tour: our guide Jessica was very knowledgeable and friendly (tour in English). Visited two cellars of Port wine producers with their guides and tasted three types of wines; the boat excursion on the Douro was also pleasant thanks to the splendid sunny day. Definitely recommended.
