What you'll do

Airbnb awarded this tour in 2019 as the MOST UNIQUE ACCESS EXPERIENCE to Douro, based on consumers choice of authenticity, history and best customers feedback.
We are very happy with the return of our guests about our commitment and passion for the Douro Valley...

We are a family business with high quality standards, forget the company tours doing always the same, we are personalized to give you a lifetime experience, simple as that...

We start to see the most breathtaking views in Douro Valley in a river cruize only for our private group with guides, all this with some snacks and drinks from Douro.

Next we will visit the first winery, the Oldest Wine House in Douro Est.1638, learn what is done in the vineyards, connect the vineyard to the university with new scientific studies, see the best of the technology that is being used in the wine production.
We will learn also about table wines, not only about Porto wine like in the other tours.
We also will be able to walk through the vineyard and of course taste their wines.

Then we will visit the authentic Douro, the Douro from the locals, the less touristy Douro and have lunch at a second winery, to get to know more about the wines of the small producers. It will be another very special moment with lunch in the garden.

All this in a day that i promise, will be memorable for you.

Note : We do private tours in French...

I´m a software engineer but since the crisis of 2008 i started to share my house on airbnb to support my household ( +3.500 experiences as a airbnb host in Porto ) ... and I´m proud to have done, because of that my life have an acceleration and completely changed my destinies and professional horizons.

Had a really lovely day with amazing people! Mood rising exponentially with the numbers of wine glasses. Manuel’s car backseats are also a 10/10 for naps.

A comprehensive trip to the Douro Valley with a boat tour, port tasting and a lovely lunch overlooking a lovely vineyard estate. Manuel has a way with engaging with others to break the ice and make the tour lively and engaging - which makes the day very special! He took lovely photos of everyone and shared them in the evening which was a lovely touch. Overall very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Manuel and his team have curated a phenomenal experience that I surely will not forget. The logistics were perfect and enabled us to see the best of the Douro in both comfort and style. The guides on the boat and wineries were lovely both in their knowledge and personal touch. Also, Manuel and Filipe are such a vibe with the energy they bring that it makes the tour a blast. I was lucky enough to have awesome individuals taking the tour as well and it literally turned into a party! Highly recommend this gem of a tour!

Fantastic Experience, easily worth the money. We had the best crew one could ask for. Filipe and Manuel whipped us around Duoro Valley before having an amazing lunch, and of course lots of wine and port 😍
