Small group – full day

This full-day adventure begins with a pick-up at your hotel on a comfortable air-conditioned minibus . Enjoy the stunning landscapes throughout your trip: observe the green valleys, beautiful vineyards, majestic almond and olive groves.

You have just reached your destination: the heart of the Douro Region, a set of small villages with an important role in the history of Port Wine. Learn all about Port Wine and the Douro Region History as you have the opportunity to visit two well-known Wine Estates.

Discover why the Alto Douro Vinhateiro Region is so much loved internationally. Uncover the most welcoming corners, breathtaking landscapes and the green and gold tones on the beautiful Douro River.

While on your guided tour, enjoy the wonderful views that the different viewpoints (“miradouros”) offer you. Go along with the undulating curves of Douro Wine Region hillsides. These landscapes are so unique that this so beloved region was classified as UNESCO World Heritage.

We are facing the perfect scenario for an exquisite visit to a Winery with a Wine Tasting Experience in Pinhão, a small village that covers a large number of renowned Wine Estates. A mandatory stop on this surprising tour.

The wine is not the only one that has a good reputation in this region: the gastronomy is able to bring you “the mouth-watering factor”. As soon as lunchtime arrives, enjoy a delicious traditional meal and indulge in Portuguese gastronomy!

After this short break, there is yet another famous winery to visit. There, you will be invited to taste Porto wines, surrounded by a truly welcoming environment: the vineyards of the Douro! Have the opportunity to enjoy some of thebest Douro wines.

This tour is far from finished. Having already known the wines of the Douro, it is now necessary to know more closely the landscapes that make this region a real point of reference. Expect an hour-long panoramic cruise in the waters of the Douro River. This is the best way to end your day and we promise you lovely moments!

Then, you will discover an amazing village named Provesende. Located on the top of a plateau, it offers a special view of this vineyard region! Finally, discover the history behind the beautiful tiles of the Pinhão railway station. Fall in love with these unique ceramics which tell the story of the harvest of the Douro grapes.

Return comfortably to Porto, observing the beautiful landscapes between the Douro and the city of Invictas. Afterward, your guide will drop you off at the door of the hotel.
