We had a day in the Douro Valley back in May, so firstly apologies for the late review.
| 1. 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.

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.

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.
| 4. 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.
| 5. 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.

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!

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.
| 8. 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.
| 9. 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!
| 10. 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.
