The Douro Valley

UNESCO World Heritage. An enchanting valley where green and gold perfectly match the course of the river. Undoubtedly, it can be said that the Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

Parque Florestal de Amarante

Our first stop is in Amarante. This city became very important after the arrival of St. Gonçalo (1187-1259) - one of the most recognized saints in Christian history. He settled here after his pilgrimage to Rome and Jerusalem, making this city an important religious stop in Portugal.

Miradouro de Sao Leonardo de Galafura

Also known as the São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint, this place will leave you breathless. From the top of its 640 meters you will have a privileged view of the Douro river and the surrounding landscape.

The Douro Valley

The tour continues to Pinhão, one of the most beautiful and charming villages in the region. Stop for a relaxing 1-hour scenic cruise on the waters of the Douro River. Observe the imposing natural views and the wonderful vineyards. End the day with a fantastic visit to a famous winery, where you will not miss the opportunity to taste excellent regional wines and learn all about the culture and process of producing Port.

Our tour guide was Valdeoraz Itelio and he was fantastic. Had plenty of wine, beautiful lunch, cruise through the valley, and stopped by a location for a beautiful view of Douro Valley. I would do it again and recommend it.

The difference between a good and a bad tour depends almost entirely on the tour guide. We unfortunately got assigned to a guide that turned this tour into a transfer service. We did not know until after we’re already on our way that it is offered in both English and French, French tourists being the majority. Our guide was an older gentleman that spoke both languages, but he seemed much more fluent in French, as he spoke a lot more of it and delivered it in a much happier demeanor. When we started the tour the guide basically just said hi and sat down, and the driver drove. He never bothered to give an orientation or a summary for the rest of the day. After we got to the first stop, he told us the name of the place, and what time we need to get back on the bus. That was it. When we got closer to Duoro Valley he pointed out a few thing occasionally. When he did speak English he spoke in a monotone as if he was simply going through the requirement. Our last stop was the 1-hour River cruise and he didn’t come with us. As you can imagine it was a very quiet 1-hour and no one knew what to look at. We signed up for a tour with the expectation to learn the history and culture, and be entertained and enlightened by our guide. Unfortunately this tour turned out to be merely a transfer service with a guide whose only function was to shepherd us around making sure we don’t miss the bus. We were very disappointed and thought this tour was a waste of time and money.

Fantastic trip with very knowledgeable guide would recommend for everyone visiting Porto. Stops with breathtaking views and a wonderful lunch

The tour was very interesting and fun. It was a perfect day to be spend driving in very comfortable 8 seats micro bus and listening to Paula, who was our tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and passion able about the country and the region of Porto. We received so much information about the places that we visited and got all the answers to our questions. We visited along the way very beautiful small town with the gorgeous church and after had very delicious lunch. I had fish and it was very delicious! Then we drove to Douro Valley and had 1 hour cruise along the Douro River. It was very picturesque and relaxing. At the end, we visited one winery with a tour and wine testing. One more thing that made my trip unforgettable, was our tour guide. Paula. Beside that she is incredible tour guide, she is a very nice and a kind person. I forgot my camera in the bus when we were dropped at our hotel. After a phone call to the Grey Line office, we agreed that next morning I will pick it up from the office where we bought the tour. But how surprised I was, when the same evening Paula brought my camera to the hotel! It was very kind of her and I was very happy and thanks full to have my camera back.

<p>This was a great tour, and the guide was a lot of fun! We had a good group of people, who enjoyed each other's company as well. Douro was a beautiful area, and the vineyard tour was good, although it was very, very hot to be walking in the full sun that day! The boat ride was fun too, although it was crowded with other groups on the small boat, and as our group was the last to board, not everyone had a place to sit. Also, we thought beverages would be available for purchase on the boat, and they weren't - disappointing on a hot day. </p> <p>The roads were very curvy, and although our driver did a pretty good job, the others on the road were a bit scary. Possibly more patrol, which is beyond the control of any tour company would help. Overall, a great trip that I recommend!</p>

<p>The Douro Valley is a must see if going to Porto. And it is beautiful. I had an excellent guide who took us to some really interesting places--towns, wineries, scenic lookouts. This was a very good tour.</p>

Pietro P

<p>Beautiful views and tour. The only drawback is that the group was mixed English and Portugese therefore more than half the time we did not understand anything.</p>

Jeffrey N

<p>Excellent tour, our tour guide Joanna was very knowledgeable and was very attentive to the group. The scenery was gorgeous. Only down side was insufficient breaks at overlooks to get some beautiful shots of the scenery. Port wine tasting was delicious. Would highly recommend. Great way to see the Douro valley.</p>

Jenny C

<p>The tour overall was just OK. The guide was professional but very perfunctory. It kind of feel like she was just doing a job. The lunch included was very good and we got to try some local food. The rest of the tour was a combination of some free time exploring the churches/town we stopped at and going to local wineries for tastings. The information said we can sample local products, which from recollection was just some cheese bits and dried meat and biscuits. There were no explanation given of the products. Overall, it was an average tour - not really good but not really bad.</p>

<p>A lovely day, which for people who don't normally enjoy coach or minibus trips, was a real treat. Our guide Sophia, was charming, attentive and informative, and we had a real insight into the wonderful scenery of the Douro Valley.<br/> Ken and Chris Brown</p>
