What you can expect
Travel comfortably towards the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An enchanted valley, where the green and the gold blend perfectly with the river course. Undoubtedly, it can be said that the Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful areas of the world - feel the Nature in its purest state!
As you will learn on this full-day guided tour, the Douro Region has enormous importance for the wine culture for its outstanding wines, including Port Wines. For more than 2.000 years, Port Wine has been produced in the Douro by traditional landholders.
Our first stop is in Amarante. This city became very important after Saint Gonçalo's arrival (1187-1259) - one of the most renowned saints in Christian history. He settled himself here after his pilgrimage through Rome and Jerusalem, making this city an important religious stop in Portugal. You may visit the convent and church, but also observe its beautiful bridge over the Tamega river or explore its beautiful historic centre.
Our day will continue to one of the most surprising spots of this tour: the Galafura viewpoint. Also known as São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint, this place will take your breath away. From the top of its 640 metres, you will have a privileged view over the Douro river and the surrounding landscape. We promise you that this is one of the greatest highlights of this tour.
After all the contemplation, it's time for a traditional lunch (optional). Have the opportunity to taste the best of the Douro's gastronomy in a family owned restaurant, where the food follows homemade and familiar recipes.
The tour continues to Pinhão, one of the most beautiful and charming villages of this region. Stop for a 1-hour panoramic relaxing cruise over the Douro river waters. Observe the imposing natural views and the gorgeous vineyards. Enjoy!
End your day with a fantastic visit to a renowned Wine Estate, where you will not miss the chance to taste 3 excellent regional wines and learn all about the Port Wine culture and making process.
Return comfortably to Porto, observing the beautiful landscapes between the Douro and the city of Porto. Afterwards, your guide will drop you off at the door of the hotel.
