In Portugal’s Douro Valley, the scenery is just as enjoyable as the wine, but if you’re focusing on navigation, you’re likely to miss the stunning views. Opt for a full-day tour that takes care of transportation from Porto, entrance fees, wine samples, and lunch. Visit two prestigious wineries, sample regional dishes over lunch, and see the Douro Valley from a different perspective during a river cruise.

Wow, just wow and I am not easily wowed. This tour was so amazing, it would be impossible to have just one favorite.

When they say small group, they mean small group. Oporto Sensations Tours limits this tour to only a maximum of eight persons and our tour consisted of only six. We were picked up at the doorsteps of our hotel and dropped off at the same location. Our guide Jaoa made the entire tour so personal and special to each and every one of us.

The lunch was absolutely amazing and definitely authentic Portuguese food as well as the presentation. Joao even explained the importance of meals in their homes. You better come very hungry as there is certainly a plethora of food and wine!!

Not only was the scenery as spectacular as one could imagine, the education we received from Joao of the Douro Valley as well as the wines was equally as spectacular. I have such a new appreciation for this region than before.

I would without a doubt consider this tour company as a first choice when visiting Porto in the future!!

I'm not a fan of on the bus off the bus group trips but for cost effectiveness sometimes they are necessary. So I seek out the more bespoke smaller operators who are genuinely local and authentic. Pedro and Jaoa had great pre trip customer service, picked up on time and took our small and lovely group of travellers on a beautiful trip that was well curated and well hosted. My highlight was the small winery of Quinta de Marrocos where the staff were excellent, the service was awesome and the tasting was fab. Overall the trip is to be highly recommended.

Pedro was our tour guide. He was polite, informative, fun, and patient.
The tour itself was better than advertised.

After all guests were picked up at their hotel, we drove to the Douro. Although it was foggy, Pedro described the scenery and told us about the history of Port. We arrived at Pinhao, had a coffee, and then boarded a boat to lazily cruise down the river seeing many port and wine vineyards.

We made our way to Croft and tasted two ports: a Rose and a tawny. Grapes are stilled picked by hand and stomped on before making their way through the many processes that results in bottled and aged port.

On to a lunch that was amazing. We had just caught river fish that was grilled perfectly. This was the freshest fish I have eaten.

On to wine tasting at Quinta Do Val Moreira. There we saw grapes being stirred and starting their journey.

Throughout this day, Pedro answered our unending questions and then drove us back through the Douro Valley to the VERY crowded streets of Porto. He patiently and expertly guided the van to safely dropped us each back at our hotels.

Thank you Pedro, you were amazing.

We were very pleased with Pedro and the entire experience. It was our first Europe trip since 2019 and we thoroughly enjoyed Portugal. Oporto Sensations Tour was one of the best parts of our vacation.

The tour was very easy to book on line and João was easy to communicate with via their website. Pedro showed up precisely on time and we were off. The drive is a bit long from Porto to Pinhão, and our van was full, but that was the only downside. All of the other folks on the tour were super friendly. The drive is scenic and you really get to see a lot of the countryside outside of Porto.

Our first activity was the boat ride, it was a bit overcast that day, but the rain stayed away and it was warm enough to go without jackets (mid-September). The valley is scenic and Pedro talked about most of the history and current affairs of the region. The stories were informative and, in many instances, amusing. The boat was comfortable and it was easy to move around to get good pictures.

After the boat tour, we went for a brief walk around Pinhão. The attraction being the train station and its decorative tiles commemorating the region. We finished with a stop at Rufete, a local restaurant which served some of the regional wines, and a fantastic dinner of fresh fish and vegetables. The fish is served whole and there is plenty of olive oil to accompany the vegetables. Desert was a spongy cake that we pored our red wine over, a great finish to the meal.

We then toured Croft's commercial Port operations which was very enjoyable, learning about their ports and history. We then headed back to Porto, stopping at a small family owned Quinta de Marrocos, to sample their wines and ports. I know I would like to return there and stay at their Inn.

We applaud Oporto Sensations and would gladly book them again for other tours when we return to Portugal.

Everything about this tour is spot on. The tour operators are knowledgeable and obviously take pride in their business and making sure their guests get the most out of their day tour of the Duoro Valley. They communicated all details prior, confirmed pickup time and place and were on time even with the crazy Porto traffic. We booked far in advance so had no idea that on the day of our tour the region would have its rainiest day of the entire year! It didn’t matter, as we still thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip, wineries and lunch. Our lunch was one of the best meals we had during our entire Portugal tour. Highly recommend!

This was a fabulous tour! João picked us up at our villa and we had a full day, private tour with him (we had a party of 8 from Toronto. Canada). The day included a river boat tour, 2 four star + winery tours, as well as an amazing authentic Portuguese lunch at a mountain top restaurant, with unbelievable views!!
João is so knowledgeable about the Douro Valley region, and his passion for Portugal is so evident!! As it’s a family run business, we actually met João‘s brother during the day who was also running a similar tour. Please know that you are in good hands with whomever your tour guide is. I highly, highly recommend this tour if you are looking for an informative & fun day in the Douro Valley!!!!

This tour is a must if you ever visit Porto!
Pedro was our tour guide for the day and he was superb throughout! Full of facts and information about all aspects of the trip as well as historic facts etc. the tour had 8 of us for the whole day and we made such good friends with the other 4 people. The tour was thoroughly organised including pickup on time, stop off for morning coffee break, boat trip on the old boats, followed by a visit to Croft Port including nibbles snd tastings. Then on to a remote restaurant which they’d sourced for a delicious 3 course lunch with wine and the most amazing panoramic views!! Onwards to our 2nd wine tasting and totally relaxed by now samplings further delights!! And finally back to our drop off at our apartment. It’s worth every penny as Pedro worked hard all day to ensure we had a great time so thank you and if we visit porto again we shall book your tour 👍🙏

We can only say that this trip was nothing short of amazing. My wife and I wanted to get a true Douro experience and this was far more the we could even hope for. From the stunning reviews to the river cruise. From tasting excellent wines to learning about everyone who was also on the tour was such a joyful time. Our guide Bruno was exceptional. His passion for the country as well as his knowledge of the area and wine was over the top. He really made us feel like we were all old friends coming together for a day trip. We would recommend this tour to anyone and if your reading this and are thinking about other options just stop thinking and BOOK THIS TRIP NOW!

Amazing tour. Our guide Pedro was extremely knowledgeable, both about the Douro valley and about Portugal in general. In addition to learning about Portuguese wine and history, we were able to to get excellent recommendations about what to do for the rest of our time in Porto. He was also extremely entertaining, and kept us interested and laughing for the entire ~8 hour tour.
