What you'll do

We have the cheapest private tour on airbnb and on top of that if it's groups of 3 we do it in a convertible Mercedes.

I will take you to visit the Douro Valley as if it were with a friend, an unforgettable/relaxing day, an experience of a lifetime.
With me, everything is done at your own pace, with no time limits on events, no deadlines for nothing.
You even have time to cool off in the pool with a nice glass of wine in your hand in the second winery.

Our keyword and the motto of this experience is:
NO STRESS,
100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Let's see the Douro tourist that 99% of tourists see, but i want you to be the 1% of tourists who will see the Douro that no one else sees, I'll show you the most beautiful road in the entire Douro Valley and the most authentic places, from the local people with their customs and their foods and wines.

We visit 2 wine estates, first the OLDEST PORT WINE HOUSE in DOURO VALLEY Est.1638, see the vineyards and taste the grapes and learn the process of making PORT, TABLE WINES and the famous brandy to add to the Port wine.

Second a small FAMILY PRODUCER HOUSE, dating from 1735, where we will have a majestic lunch facing the vineyard and taste all their wines, including old tawny's 20/30/40.

In this experience we still have time for an OPTIONAL 1 hour PRIVATE BOAT cruize with Douro snacks and drinks only for our guests...

What a beautiful day spent with the friendliest, wine-loving hosts! The weather was perfect, the wineries well-curated, and the boat ride simply magical. Would recommend without hesitation to anyone looking to see the Douro Valley!

A day to remember. A memorable experience. Attention to detail. Always checking if we needed something. The locations were chosen perfectly and could not have been better. The tour of the Kopke estate very informative and interesting. Beautiful location and the second Estate we went to even topped the first one. Beautiful setting and great deal of attention. Very tasty lunch and then tasting of the estates port. All in all a wonderful day made very special by the personal touch of Manuel and Paulo. A wonderful team with a special touch. Well done.

The whole experience was great! Manuel and his family had a good connection with local people, who told us stories about their beautiful area. They told us with a lot of passion, an unique experience. Totally recommend!!! Forget the touristic tours and book for a perfect day in Portugal.

You are doing it wrong if you go to Porto and do not visit the Douro Valley. Manuel and his family took great care of our group in this magical place. They organized smooth transfer and charismatic guides for our tours. TIP: Do the “optional” river cruise…everyone does it and it is the highlight of the trip!

Simply unbeatable experience! You can’t have any more fun with a bottle of port and a good home cooked lunch - would highly recommend for anyone considering a trip to Douro!

Thanks Filipe & Antonio for this wonderful experience. We’ve enjoyed the trip from beginning till the end. The rain wasn’t a great start of the day, but you promised us sunshine in the Valley..and you were right ;) Good luck with the upcoming baby and till a next time! Maikel & Lisette
