Meet a driver at your hotel in Porto for the trip to the Douro Valley.
Continue to Pinhão, where you'll have time to explore the beautiful village on your own, from the surrounding vineyards to the distinctive blue-and-white tile murals.
If you selected the Douro River cruise, this is where you'll board a Rabelo, a traditional cargo boat long used for Douro River transport. The leisurely ride takes you up a Tua River tributary and past Quinta da Romaneira winery, and then loops back to Pinhão.
Either before or after your cruise (if you've upgraded), you'll pop into one of the wineries on the agenda for the day before lunch.
For lunch, sit down to a lunch of traditional Douro cuisine paired with local wines at a popular restaurant, and then visit another estate for tastings of award-winning ports and wines. The tour concludes with a return trip to Porto.
