You will be picked up from your hotel or accomodation in the city of Porto between 8:00 AM and 8:30 AM. Your guide will introduce themselves, as well as all the other guests, and you will be explained about the daily program. The journey starts towards the Douro Valley as you will learn more about the region on the way.
The itinerary includes a visit to two small local wineries, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, before coming back to Porto. At both wineries you will be in company of an expert local guide who will tell you more about the wine making process as you taste their selected wines.
You will have lunch at a traditional local restaurant in the historical village of Pinhão at the heart of the Douro Valley. Lunch includes a meal of fish, meat or vegetarian (we can also accommodate your meal if you have a gluten free diet – just let us know in advance).
Right after lunch it’s time for a 1-hour river cruise from Pinhão! It takes place on a replica of a Rabelo Boat, an historical boat that transported the wine barrels from Douro to Porto, to be aged and exported all over the world.
We will also make small stops for taking pictures and admire the surroundings and nature at local viewpoints during the day.
