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!
| 26. 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!

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.
| 28. 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!
| 29. Perfect Saturday in Tour - AROUND THE DOURO (by Cryseia)|

Igualmente um delicioso almoço regional em Lamego.
Aconselho vivamente este Tour.
Gervásio (the tour's guide) took my wife and I around for what was a great day visiting wineries and the Douro Valley. With plenty of knowledge of the area, it was our best day in the valley.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Our guide, Gervasio, was helpful and flexible. He went out of his way to help us accomplish all that we needed to do.
I have to give this tour an excellent rating.
這次蜜月旅行安排來葡萄牙渡假，我們先到Lisbon, Obidos, Coimbra 然後從Porto到douro的行程。這中間去了Pinhao ,Regua, Lamego, Quinta do Seixo,一路上導遊先生都很有耐心,很樂意回答我們的問題.他帶我們去了他的秘境,俯視整個douro 河谷,真的太美了。

The Wine Tour is a valuable tour once we saw amazing natural places and we tasted good wines.
| 35. DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
We also have decided to add the 1hour cruise from Pinhao in a traditional boat. We loved it. Congratulation for your beautiful country.
We will come back next year.
I am unable to see if the 2day Duoro River cruises/train trips and historic Rail trips(1 day) are available next season(2016). If they are when can bookings be made online to organize a visit to Porto?
Yes 2-Day Cruises will be available on 2016 however at this moment programs and prices for 2016 are not yet available.
We suggest you to Pre Book and fill up the Pre Booking form. As soon as bookings will be available we will notify you by email or sms according to your preference.

Very good holidays.
| 40. Comment DOURO TOTAL (by Barcadouro)|
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed it.....the scenery was just beautiful. BUT we were very disappointed with the commentary. We heard a lot about when various bridges were built but would loved to have heard a lot more about the countryside we were travelling through and information about the lifestyles and farming methods of the region. Not to mention some of the history. The staff were very good and the food was delicious. Perhaps the trip was a little too long (maybe 2 hours shorter would be fine) as it was VERY hot and there was hardly any shelter on the deck. Having said all that we would certainly recommend the trip to friends.
Fantastic wines tastings specially at Quinta Seixo near Pinhao. I strongly suggest it to all wine lovers. Prices in Portugal are fairly good, the sceneries are great and people very kind. 5 *****
| 41. Wine Tasting in DOURO VALLEY WINE TOUR (by Cryseia)|
We did the 1 day cruise till Pinhao. The scenery is very nice, we enjoyed it very much.The breakfast was small, but the lunch was okay.
| 42. 1-DAY CRUISE DOURO LBV (by Barcadouro)|
On the streets of downtown the side walks are "Art sidewalks" made by millions small black and white cubes of natural stones! I never imagine to see such beautiful street on my life.
I loved almost everything in Porto and specially nearby the river. So cute and lovely. Europe has wonderful places for discovering

| 44. 2-DAY CRUISE DOURO TOTAL (by Barcadouro)|
I was a nice trip but too many people the first day. Food was ok. The traintrip in the evening was to long. Good guide!
[09.06.2015 09:32 - Dutry]
For me a 1 day trip will be enough.
Here is my appreciation about 3 days we spent in Porto and Douro Valley and 3 days in Lisbon and Alentejo:
| 45. We will come back next year|
- the Day light is amazing (when we got out from the airplan we were astonished looking to the clear and blue sky, just amazing).
- Portugal seems free of polution and that was great feeling for us.
- People is friendly and we felt security
- Food tastes excelent, fresh and cheap (try some grilled fish dishes, they taste very fresh)
- Hotels and B&B are very good
- Some cities and villages are very typical and so cute we would love to live there all year long (such as Vila of Obidos located about 100 km from Lisbon) Wow so lovely and well treated village.
The country side is very beautiful and sometimes even wild.
We will come back again next year although to stay here for 2 weeks. Great country for discovering and for living.
Not so much to talk about. The most negative point for me and my family was the short time we have been there!
We will come back next years Portugal.

One day Cruise on Douro from Porto to Regua and return (Douro Vintage A) Very good trip, well organized. Good food and service with a good port wine aperitif. Visit winery not so good, short and only one tasting, it was like the main thing was to sell to us.

We loved some places of Porto such as Lello bookshop and Majestic Coffeeshop both located downtown city of Oport. What wonderful places. I do recommend everyone to visit them.
| 49. Places to visit in Porto City.|
The sceneries of the Douro Valley by boat are also amazing and somebody told me on September they will be even more beautiful due to the ruby hues of the hills.
Great moments ... and great Porto Wine aboard!
On last May me and my wife we did the Tawny Cruise, from Porto to Regua. We did appreciate it very much. Next time we will visit Portugal again we wish to go on a cruise from Porto to Barca Dalva in the border between Portugal and Spain. Which cruise would you suggest ?
PS - congratulations for the excelent glass of Porto Wine we taste on the boat.
