Welcome, visit in French (impeccable) of half an hour then tasting. Pleasant surroundings. Unfortunately the Bistro Terrace restaurant was closed (pandemic) but nearby restaurants are recommended by the very friendly staff. A priori no tide on the wine route during the week. Beautiful point of view on the Douro. Easy and efficient booking with GetYourGuide.

The visit was incomparable: the place is wonderful, the wine produced from organic grapes very good, the staff very helpful and welcoming. Absolutely recommended if you have the opportunity to get there by car ... Not even remotely comparable to the questionable wine tastings in the cellars at Villa Nova de Gaia, opposite Porto.

A wonderful walk through nature. Nature lovers will be delighted with this tour. Delicious, local lunch and the guide Afonso was just great. Gave us a lot of information about the region during the tour.

Quinta do Tedo was an absolutely beautiful winery to visit - breathtaking views, great tour guides, and yummy Port. It was our favorite winery tour in the Douro Valley.

Nice tour guide, interesting information and good tasting experience. Breathtaking view. Excellent value for money!
