Private Mercedes with a guide visiting the famous Mateus Palace, a gourmet lunch at a winery, a winery visit or a boat cruise, and driving the most beautiful road in the world.
Tried and tested by the Winerist team we have chosen this tour as an excellent introduction to everything the Douro Valley has to offer. If you only have a day to spend in the Douro we highly recommend this tour.
Discover the majestic Douro Valley and its hidden gems on this full-day wine tour. Your first stop will be at the splendid Mateus Palace, which is depicted on the labels of the famous Mateus rosé wine. Tour the ornate manor house and its beautiful gardens.
Continue to a renowned winery set amongst the terraces of the valley where you will enjoy a tour of the cellar and tasting of their highly regarded wines before indulging in a traditional lunch consisting of specialties of the estate paired with its wines.
After lunch you will drive on N222, "one of the most beautiful roads in the world", between Regua and Pinhão.
For the afternoon, you can choose to embark on a traditional rabelo boat which were used to transport the Port wine to the wine cellars in Porto. Relax and soak up the spectacular scenery as you sail along the historical Douro River. In alternative, you will visit another winery where you will sample their wines and enjoy the gorgeous setting.
A complete day experiencing the authentic Douro Valley!
