Cette expérience a été super : bien organisée, sympathique et enrichissante. L’accueil sur le bateau et dans les deux caves est exceptionnel, les dégustations fabuleuses et le déjeuner chez Augusto mémorable.

It‘s a really nice tour with some hidden costs, the entire costs are 105 euro because you have to book although for lunch (15 euro) and a nice boat trip (other 15 euro) if not you stay but it‘s not possible to continue the tour. So at the end, for 75 euro you get a car trip about 120 km there and 120 km back with an seeing one wine enterprise and testing some port wine there.

Everything about this experience was perfect! Manuel was a lovely host, and kept us entertained throughout the journey. We had our doubts whether this would be the best way to explore the Douro valley, but the rave reviews intrigued us. And no regrets! Wanting to make this a memorable experience, we went for the Mercedes convertible tour, and it was definitely an epic ride. The 2 vineyards we went to had really lovely and knowledgeable guides. Likewise for the boat tour, it was super informative and the snacks and drinks were lovely. Lunch was probably the best meal we had in Portugal thus far 😍 Would definitely recommend this experience to anyone wanting to explore the Douro valley - you’ll be in the good hands of Manuel & his family! Thank you Manuel!

Die Fahrt ins Douro Tal war eine großartige Erfahrung. Manuel hat mit viel Liebe eine Tour zusammengestellt bei der wir wunderbare Orte und sehr sympathische Menschen kennenlernen durften. Die Begeisterung für das Douro Tal und die Portweinherstellung war ansteckend. Vielen Dank an Pasquale, Antonio und Carolina. Wir können diese Tour uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Vielen Dank Manuel!

I always like to choose locals when I choose an experience. And I chose this one because it was local. Some of this might be a result of covid structures but I think there is generally room for improvement on this tour. It is an 8 or 8.5 hour tour to the Douro Valley. Van transportation there and back. There is an optional lunch and an optional boat ride at a town on the way. So we stopped at two towns along the way Pinhoa was one and I fail to see the significance of it to the Douro Valley as we were walked through a rather dreadful town market which I believe was to waste time for the others who might have chosen a boat tour but I cannot be sure about that. Prior to this town we stopped at another town to walk across the bridge. Finally arriving at Kopke vinyards that experience was awesome. The staff gracious and very well informed on their craft. They couldn't have been nicer. We tasted a few Ports. I think there were actually 4 or 5 and while we waited for the other car, a wonderful white wine. That experience an A+. Then onto a small vintner in Senora where we had a lunch 15 euros extra and tasted two wines and 4 ports. The setting was very nice. I am not sure what happens if you don't opt into lunch. But the setting was great and very relaxing. It was mentioned at the beginning that we would visit three vintners but I think we just ran out of time. If I can make a suggestion it would be to have maybe a pre-recorded script for the drive that plays in the car with a history of the area etc. Mainly because of road noise etc. It is hard to hear the guide and on those roads it might be better for the guide to not have to entertain the guests. For me the stops along the way added minimum to no value to the experience. I would have rather visited another winery even a non port one or another Port house.

Wow what a wonderful day out. Manuel really put a lot of thought into his tour. The Douro valley is gorgeous and our first stop is at the oldest Port Wine House in Douro with a great guide that provides us with all the info we need and more. We could taste more than what was on offer. World class. Then we go on the boat trip with 2 great guides. All the guides are very authentic and know why more than you could ever ask. We had excellent snacks and Port & Tonic on the boat and the scenery is stupendous. Then off to Lunch in Sorbrero which is on the other side (outskirts) of Douro valley. So you really see the whole valley. Lunch is in a gorgeous setting and you can drink as much as you like. The winemaker of this small producer wine house serves you and the afterwards we tasted 10, 20 and 30 year tawny port. Sooooooo good. Best of all was Delfina who drove us all the way. She made the whole trip so fun and engaging and brought the whole group together. This is a small group tour, very intimate and at the end we all left as friends. Also the drive back from Sobrero is quicker as its right next to the highway. Very clever. Thank you Manuel and Delfina.
