Our private wine tour turned out to be our favorite day in Portugal! Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We got to do tours and tastings at 3 excellent wineries, and it was a great mix of different types of wine and different size wineries.

Our regional lunch was excellent, and was potentially our best meal that we had in Portugal.
Cannot recommend this tour highly enough, amazing from beginning to end!
Thank you, Sofia and Jorge. We had a wonderful time cruising to the Duoro Valley and at Quinta do Vallado. The Quinta is a very special place. SUS Duoro provided a wonderful lunch on the day we departed and the train ride back to Porto was easy. Lovely area - we hope to return some day.

The ship was comfortable, the lunch was fairly good, and the landscapes really amazing. It was an unforgettable experience that may surprise many travellers the same way it has surprised me.
Once in Régua a short free time so I just took a glass of Port Wine in a wine shop near of the Trains Station and downstream by train back to Porto.
Very nice indeed.
| 4. 真的太棒了 - DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
早已久聞盛名的世界文化遺產的杜羅河谷梯田葡萄園區，規劃了近半年左右，終於這次和幾位友人來造訪，真的不虛此行。此次的行程除了安排搭了郵輪，傳統的葡萄牙餐（葡萄牙餐還蠻好吃的)，又去參觀了酒莊，品嚐了這裡有名Porto Ruby wine,（顧名思義就是紅寶紅酒，波特紅酒果體很濃郁，價錢不貴CP值高，我個人很喜歡,亞洲人比較少喝這類紅酒，來一要品嚐看看).

Me and my friends spent a lovely day in the Douro Valley with our guide Gervasio. He was always professional and punctual and yet still very friendly, informative and engaging. The minibus was comfortable and like new, and the driver very capable in the dramatic landscape. We really enjoyed our visit to two quintas and the lunch in Pinhao was tasty.

The atmosphere was homey and festive.
The boat ride was a great way to round out our holiday in sunny Portugal.
| 6. Day trip in the Douro Valley - AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|
As a group of four, we toured the Douro Valley in September with Gervasio. He was an excellent host and guide. He had lots of information to share. The tour itself was excellent value, beautiful scenery and lots of stops along the way. We had wonderful time in Lamego visiting the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remedios and parts of the town then a wonderful, authentic Portuguese lunch.

In the afternoon, a tour of a Quinta do Tedo and then a boat cruise on the Douro.
A day very well spent, highly recommended.
Thank you Gervasio!
As a group of 14 young people, this day trip was perfect. We had our own guide and the tour was organised according our interests.

Lunch in local restaurant was great, tasty and with a great choice.
Day went so nice and smooth with a relaxing boat trip at the end.
Gervasio is very pleasant man and he is great tour guide. Very enjoyable and higly recomended!
Pour avoir visité de nombreuses régions viticoles sur 4 continents, je dois placer le Douro tout au haut de la liste.
| 9. Une journée magnifique - CRUISE DOURO RESERVA (by Barcadouro)|
Les paysages et les quintas sont magnifiques. Rien à signaler en ce qui concerne le voyage ou le service: tout état bien organisé.
U seul bémol: 1/2 journée, c'est trop court. La prochaine fois, la destination sera Barca d'Alva.
Gervasio is just outstanding! Very informative, extremely courteous and very punctual.
| 10. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
He did an awesome job touring with us, was very attentive and yet discreet when need be. The tour itself was great, beautiful scenery, a great authentic Portuguese lunch , followed by a relaxing boat ride along the Douro River and a visit to 3 different quintas.
A day well spent, and worth every penny! We Highly recommend it :)
Thank you Gervasio, thank you Cryseia!
The tour was excellent. Comfortable bus, friendly guide and great views!.
| 11. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Wineries were top with beautiful grounds and the river cruise was scenic.
We had a day in the Douro Valley back in May, so firstly apologies for the late review.
| 12. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
This was our second trip to the Douro and first for the friends we were travelling with, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Gervasio was a terrific host and great company for the day, as we asked him many questions about not just wine but everything about Portugal. Lunch was delicious, in Pinhao, and again the hosts were lovely.
I would recommend a day with Gervasio in the Douro, we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour!
What a delight it was to have Gervasio as our guide for 2 days! We stayed at a Quinta and he picked us up (early on time) both days for a tour north and south of the Douro.
| 13. AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|
Gervasio is thoughtful, informative, interesting, intelligent and flexible. He is a retired English teacher and musician/poet, so we had a great time. We highly recommend you use Gervasio for an authentic, local guide. We saw and experienced so much with him and will never forget this experience.
When we booked our 2nd day - it HAD to be with Gervasio!
My wife and I had a wonderful time touring the Douro Vally with Gervasio. He was a very pleasant and informative guide and went out of his way to accommodate our schedule.
| 14. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
I agree with an earlier commenter that the lunch in Pinhao was one of the better meals of our trip.
We had a spectacular day touring the Douro Valley.
| 15. Spectacular day touring the AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|
The gardens at Mateus were breathtaking.
We particularly enjoyed the homemade meal in Pinhao.
My husband and I agree this was our favorite meal in Portugal!
The Douro river boatride was both scenic and relaxing.
Overall, a wonderful introduction to the Douro valley and we would highly recommend this tour to others!
We were delighted with our personal guide and tour of Douro Valley.
| 16. Amazing AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia) day trip|
We visited some of the most beautiful places along the river and the surrounding areas, the tours to vineyards and a cruise were fantastic.
Our guide was great! He has a lot of knowledge about the area and all that is related to it, and was very helpful during the day.
The communication and logistics were great. I would highly recommend this company.
| 17. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Our tour with Gervasio was excellent and we were fortunate to have Amélia as our driver. They customized our day to our personal interests, which for us included a tour of Amarante and Lamego, a stop for lunch at the acclaimed DOC restaurant as well as the opportunity to wine taste at one of the loveliest vineyards at to end of the valley in Pinhao.
It was the perfect day and I could not recommend them more emphatically.
Gervasio was a wonderful guide!
| 18. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
We had an incredible day touring the Douro Valley. Gervasio went out of his way to accommodate us and make sure we saw everything. The lunch and the boat ride in Pinhao were absolutely fantastic.
Thank you for such a great trip!!
Gervasio was a terrific host, superb day trip taking in some wonderful scenery and three Vineyards. Great variety of producer from small through to large and some top quality wines and ports sampled. Would highly recommend this private tour for anyone considering it.
| 19. Fantastic enjoyable tour - DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Had a wonderful day touring the Douro Valley. We saw a broad view of the scenery and learned about the history. An enjoyable lunch was followed by a relaxing boat tour on the river. The day was topped off by the winery tour and the beautiful views.
| 20. Douro Valley Tour - AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|
We recently came back from a weekend in Porto and spent a day with the lovely Gervasio touring the Douro region. He picked us up promptly from our hotel and there was only one other couple on the tour, so we had lots of space in the mini van and could ask Gervasio as many questions as we liked!
| 21. Great experience on the Douro tour - DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Unfortunately we didn't have the best weather in early February, but it didn't spoil the day at all.
We visited 3 quintas and spent time looking around the area - we were exhausted by the end.
I would highly recommend taking this tour.
We had such a fantastic day in the Douro with Gervasio (Cryseia's guide-driver), he was a great host and we were treated so well by everyone whom we met over the course of the day. We can't wait to return as there are so many more Quintas we are longing to discover and visit!
| 22. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Highly recommend this tour!
The WINE TOUR was wonderful - great wine. Our guide Gervasio was fantastic and a fountain of knowledge. We got to see areas that we would not normally have seen.
| 23. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
Highly recommend the wine tour.
I highly recommend everyone to take the tour Around the Douro ! It's 200% worth it!
| 24. Perfect Saturday in Tour - AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|
