Tour Detail

Our Douro Valley Tour takes you to undiscovered places you cannot find in travel guides - in such a vast region and so many points of interest to discover, we picked out local and unique stops to give you the best impression of the famous valley and its people. The visual transition from Portugal´s second largest city to one of its most rural provinces could not be more striking. Showing the great contrast between the bustle of the sea port and the slow, traditional way of life upriver. The surrounding region east of Porto remains medieval until today.

Since 1756 the Douro Valley was established as a wine region for the production of Port Wine, which means that the majority wineries are astounding 18th-century heritage buildings. With us you are going to explore this open air museum!

The Douro River and its UNESCO World Heritage Region is known as one of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. Culture, history and the people make this visit an unforgettable journey. With us, you are going to discover the secrets of the valley from a view of a local.

First stop on our tour will be the modern Douro Valley Museum in Régua, the best way for you to get an impression of the memory and identity of the Wine Region. Our ride takes us along the Douro River, another postcard view of the region. Enjoy a delicious cuisine for lunch in a traditional atmosphere, at our well-chosen local restaurant. On the winery you are going to explore the real taste of ports and wine brands. You visit the whole farm with all its history and producing secrets, the owner himself will show you around.
