Very pleasant activity thanks in particular to our guide Mario who knew how to animate our day with his very interesting anecdotes, his jokes and his songs. Pleasant driving from our Estérel driver. The only downside was the lunch, which was the worst since our stay in Porto: ridiculous salad, overly salty meat, good but meager dessert.

It was an all around nice day tour. We saw a lot and got a great overview of the valley. We never sat on the bus for too long and always had enough time at the individual stops. Waldemar was a relaxed guide who always shared information with us at the right time and at a reasonable length. Another photo stop near the river would have been nice.

A fun filled day in the Douro Valley. Two tastings (local cooperative winery & Port!) with a traditional Portuguese meal. We had a great time with our fellow tour members and our guide, Alex, was honestly the highlight. Great playlist, great knowledge of the valley’s history, and great dance moves.
