Overview
Visit Portugal’s prestigious Douro Valley on this full-day wine tour from Porto! Famous for its production of port wine, this UNESCO World Heritage-listed region is indisputably scenic, with swathes of vineyards clinging to the hills around the Douro River. Admire the scenery around the village of Pinhão, enjoy a traditional lunch of regional specialties and visit a winery estate for a tasting session of award-winning local wines. To enjoy more of the countryside on the way to the Douro Valley, upgrade to include a sightseeing rabelo boat tour along the Douro River, departing from Pinhão.

Numbers are limited to eight people on this small-group tour, ensuring a more personalized experience.

What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Porto for the trip to the Douro Valley. Continue to Pinhão, where you have time to explore the beautiful village on your own, from the surrounding vineyards to the distinctive blue-and-white tile murals. If you selected the Douro River cruise, this is where you board a Rabelo, a traditional cargo boat long used for Douro River transport. The leisurely ride takes you up a Tua River tributary and past Quinta da Romaneira winery, and then loops back to Pinhão. Either before or after your cruise (if you've upgraded), pop into one of the wineries on the agenda for the day before lunch.  For lunch, sit down to a lunch of traditional Douro cuisine paired with local wines at a popular restaurant, and then visit another estate for tastings of award-winning ports and wines. The tour concludes with a return trip to Porto.
