Beautiful day of relaxation

Pascal took great care and communicated his passion for Portugal to us. We had a great day. Magnificent landscapes, visit to the vip cellar, discovery of a small typical museum. We had lunch with a view of the Douro, but to choose, we would have preferred a more intimate place, for example in a small typical village. We would definitely recommend! Thank you Pascal

This was truly an amazing experience! If you can, ask for Pascal as a guide; he was kind, funny, very knowledgeable and a great story teller! Just wonderful! Easy pick up with a nice, spacious van. Bottles of water provided. The first stop was at a small family vineyard where we tasted amazing wines and ports, with some bread, olive oil and jam. After plenty of time to have a look at the view, we went on a boat tour on the Douro river. This was the only 'touristy' thing about the whole experience, as this was on a tourist boat with other tourists. We got the great tip from our guide to sit in the back though, where there were only about 8 people, shade, and a beautiful view. Afterwards we drove to a lovely small town where we had an AMAZING diner prepared by a sweet, older, local woman. We had some appetizers, main course and 4 kinds of desserts, with wines and water to your liking. We ended this lovely day in Vila Real where we had a refreshing porto-tonic. 11/10 would recommend!
