          An informative and comfortable way to see the Douro Valley.
          Francisco was our driver and guide. He combined a thoroughly informative commentary with music appropriate to particular parts of the tour. The Douro Valley is spectacular, and he knew where to go for optimum enjoyment. We had some excellent wine, and food, and came away feeling it was time and money well spent. Thank you Francisco!

          Highly recommend!
          What an amazing experience! Thiago was an absolutely fantastic guide. He was so knowledgeable and fun. His personal experience and his understanding of the history of Portuguese wine and food was unparalleled. Each stop was meaningful and well thought out. It was relaxing not to have to drive and to be entertained and educated along the way. We especially enjoyed the delicious authentic family style lunch. We loved everything about the tour and would highly recommend!

          Simply amazing!
          My wife and I had an absolute blast on our tour of Porto with Tania! Tania made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable the entire time. She took the time to show us around and gave amazing restaurant recommendations. She even dropped us off at a separate location we wanted to see in the city. We highly recommend going to Porto and booking a tour specifically with Tania! She is one of the best in the business!

          Amazing Tour and Guide
          Even though it was raining non-stop for most of the day, we had a great time on this tour, in large part due to our great guide Tiago. He answered every one of our many questions, answered more we didn't know we had, and was fun and pleasant the whole time. He also did a great job taking care of one of the members of our party when they slipped and got a minor cut - definitely not part of the job description, but much appreciated. The stops were great, especially lunch

          Amazing Proposal experience!
          Where do I begin… an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. I approached them my engagement proposal in mind and they went above and beyond to make the moment special and completely tailored the day. From the boat tour to the vineyards. The guide personally knows the people you are meeting, restaurants and experiences you will not find without the depth and expertise given by the team and Pascal. I can’t thank them enough and would advise anyone that is after a truly unforgettable experience to reach out and work with them. I couldn’t have made my day as especial as it was without them. Thank you so much and I can’t wait till I can book another experience.

          Alex was the best!!
          Alex was an amazing guide for Douro Valley Tour. He provided pertinent history of the region coupled with family vignettes (since his grandfather and father grew up in the region). Alex also ensured we had many wonderful photo ops of the gorgeous Douro Valley. I give Alex 5 stars as a tour guide!!

          Alex was an amazing guide which made the whole day both fun and packed with information. It was great seeing the beautiful Douro valley and Alex provided us with great tips for things to do in Porto also.

          Extraordinary, memory making authentic experience
          Our tour with Nuno was INCREDIBLE!!! Request him if you can. He is passionate about his country but also about you learning about it and enjoying it as a local. We were a private tour (US married couple in 50s) and eight hours in a car with a guide could have been, well, tedious for them and us. But there wasn’t a minute that we thought Nuno was just “dialing it in”. The tour starts straight away with Nuno giving some Porto history as you drive out of the city. And, it really never stops! He tells you interesting facts all along the drive. The first stop was at a winery, but not one of the large mass producers. It is an intimate family owned vineyard with exceptional wines and port. It feels like you snuck into the family dining table in an elegant but casual way. Everyone was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Next up was the journey through the valley on our way to the Douro River boat tour. There are no words that can describe how beautiful this is. The vastness of the natural scenery mixed with the historical villages is like nothing you’ll see anywhere else. And Nuno narrates as you go so you understand what you are looking at and it’s importance. The river boat ride is more along the commercial side, but is not bad. Plenty of seating, a bar and fairly brief (20 mins ea way up and back). On either side you are seeing the range of vineyards-huge to small and it is just gorgeous (even on a rainy day like ours). The river itself is tranquil and the ride is a great time to just relax and soak in the experience of thousands before you responsible for moving the grapes and wine down the river. Nuno was right there waiting for us as we got off the boat-super easy. Next up was a short (but spectacular) drive up to lunch. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT!! Every person visiting a country wants to feel like they are having an authentic experience. Lunch is in a tiny village, in a small “restaurant” which is a woman’s home that she has converted. You dine upstairs in a room set aside for your tour and the meal is fish or meat with sides. On our tour we started with olives in honey (try it!), oranges, olive oil and bread. The star was homemade “strudel”. The meal was Hake fish, Roasted Pork in port wine sauce, potatoes, rice, salad, carrot cake and local wines. The meal was voted our favorite from a five day trip through Spain/Portugal that included a Michelin starred restaurant. It is that good. The final stop after a brief drive down into the valley was at a small village square where we soaked up some Sun, had a traditional cocktail of white wine, tonic and lemon. Hung out with the locals (patrons and dogs) and were serenaded by the next door church’s bells. Every single part of this tour was jaw dropping gorgeous and historically fascinating. There is nothing we would change or suggest. We are picky-spoiled on good food and great travels and we can still say that. If you are hesitant for any reason-don’t. We almost cancelled thinking it wouldn’t be good on a rainy day and in hindsight that would have been the regret of a lifetime.

          Wonderful half day!
          The lady was very knowledgeable, and port was fantastic, the only comment not complaint would be lots of steep hills if your hard of walking!

          Fantastic Douro Valley Tour
          Nuno was a perfect guide for this tour. Extremely informative regarding Portuguese history and culture. He was also very funny and personable. We had an amazing day experiencing the Douro Valley, including a wonderful home cooked authentic Portuguese meal for lunch in a small town nearby and ended with a visit to a beautiful winery for Porto tonics. A great tour all around!

          Fantastic Day Trip
          Absolutely amazing day out. Picked up by Tiago who was so amusing and entertaining. We learnt so many things about Portugal. Driven to a lovely vineyard for a tasting and then dropped off for our boat trip. Tiago took care of all the details. Highlight of the trip was lunch at the most unique place ever. So delighted to be taken here and what an honour to have such a banquet (literally). Final stop was a quick cocktail and then back to the town.

          What a great day
          Well this trip was a wonderful way to kick off our vacation in Porto. They picked us up right on time and gave us the best info. We were lucky enough to get Nuno as our guide. He was phenomenal and made the trip so much better. Nuno was VERY knowledgeable and made sure we were always having a good time and got us what we needed. Thank you

          Great private tour!
          We loved our private tour. Nuno, our guide, was amazing. We felt we we're royalty with how well we we're treated and received. The visit of the vineyards and the region was great. Amazing meal as well. if there was one small thing to change, we would have loved to have a second more formal wine tasting in the afternoon. Even with 3 kids (age 16,13 and 10), we had no issues and the day was a blast.

          Buyer Beware #2
          This review relates specifically to the tour provider, Your Tours Portugal. Both TripAdvisor and Viator have subsequently stepped up where Your Tours did not. It is designed to be a detailed description of the actual tour that we experienced. We have done several private tours through Viator and all of them have been fantastic. Since it's private, the guides would recommend things to do and see and we could choose which ones worked for our group. This particular tour was not like that at all. It started off bad when the guide said their van broke down last night and they had to get one from another company, which included having to use the other company's driver. The six of us specifically heard the guide say "the other van collapsed." So we had to stuff 6 grown adults in the back of a van for a very long trip while the driver and guide were up front. Afterwards, we did learn that the guide told his boss that there was no replacement van so he either misled his boss, or us. I'll let the reader decide. The guide did offer me the front seat at the beginning but what father would put a stranger in the back with his family? Your Tours Portugal should have notified me the night before and gave me a choice to cancel the trip but they didn't. We hoped for the best and got in. The first stop at a winery started out ok but we were surprised that there was another group of 6 people at the table. So much for a private tour. The owner gave a nice overview and provided some bread crumbs and olive oil to snack on while he poured 2 wines and 2 ports. The first wine was a decent pour and each successive glass was smaller and smaller. We were there for about 20 minutes and he then said it was over as he had another group ready to come in. The next 40 minutes was spent waiting in line for the bathroom, waiting in line to purchase something, and waiting for a different van driver to move his vehicle so we could get out. No tour of the winery or cellars provided. Since the "Provider Photos" and "Traveler Photos" all show pictures of being in the cellars with barrels we assumed that would be coming up on our next winery visit. Many Traveler Photos and comments mentioned stopping at 2-3 wineries during the trip. Afterwards, Your Tours said that they do not represent that the pictures relate to this specific tour. Would have been nice to know that up front. Unfortunately, that next winery visit never happened.... The next stop was supposed to be the "relaxing" boat trip on the Douro river. All the Provider Photos and Traveler Photos show a small boat on the river and, since we were on a private tour, assumed that is what we would be on. The description does say that the boat is not private but certainly expected a more intimate setting. While they had those smaller boats there, we got put on a very large boat that held over 100 people. It was not the more private, relaxing journey we anticipated. Total waste of time. On the way out we wanted to make a 5 minute stop at a souvenir store that was right by the dock. Our guide would not stop and instead told us there would be nothing to see in there and wait until we were back in Porto to go out on our own. That's not his decision to make on a "private" tour. Next stop was for lunch. Surely we would be visiting another winery and having lunch outside with wine pairings, etc. Even the full description of the tour on the site stated "...have a true wine lunch where every element of the meal is paired with different DOC Douro wines, from the appetizers to the cafe in the end." Both the Provider and Traveler photos showed tables set up outside at a winery with several wine glasses ready to be filled, etc. One traveler commented that lunch was fantastic and was at a Michelin restaurant. We ended up inside at a small restaurant, in a very small town, with a concrete floor and particle board walls. Choice of food was pork or fish with bones and a frozen desert. Obviously not a winery lunch environment nor the experience we were led to believe. Clearly, Your Tours is squeezing every penny out of our dollars instead of providing a special winery lunch experience. Next stop was at an old manor house which was interesting to see. Then led out back where many tables were under some big trees. Some filled with people drinking wine and eating what looked like a very nice lunch. Not sure why we at least didn't have lunch there. Instead, we were led to a table, given a glass of something to drink, no explanation, no discussion of wines. No one ever came back to the table so we left. Again, not what the provider led us to believe. Last stop was at a lookout point on the way home to take some pictures. Our guide said we have "two minutes" and to come back. You've got to be kidding me..... After piling back into the van the guide said "we could now take a nap" as we headed back to Porto. We then had to suffer through 90 minutes of our guide and driver talking to each other in Portuguese while they played David Bowie's greatest hits through the speakers. You can't make this stuff up! Finally, this trip cost about $1,200 for the six of us and it was our son's birthday. We were all really looking forward to the Douro Valley Wine trip and just could not be more disappointed. We definitely got to see the Douro Valley, which was cool, but Your Tours Portugal really left out the whole "wine" part of trip. Even as I'm writing this I still can't believe it. No need to pay extra for a "private" tour when it's really not private.

        We had a fantastic day with our extremely knowledgeable guide, Pedro. He is very pleasant, professional and friendly at the same time. He has a deep knowledge of the material and it’s not memorized but from an educational perspective. I highly recommend this tour, specifically if Pedro is your guide. Beautiful scenery and landmarks.

        Our guide Sergio was very nice, polite, knowledgeable and full of interesting stories, not only from history but also gave us some tidbits of daily life if Portugal, and this is exactly the information you are looking for when visiting a foreign country. We did not feel rushed at all, but Sergio managed to fit so much in one day - I'm sure we'll remember this trip for a long long time. Traveling a lot, we know how much depends on the guide when taking a tour - it could make or break your whole experience. Sergio made our day highly enjoyable, we learned a lot and had a great time. Thank you, Sergio and "Your Tours"!

        Yourtours was a pleasure to work with from the first email exchange. The company was very responsive and transparent. Planning an overseas trip for 6 people with 3 being of them being over 90 years old with mobility and special health issues was a huge concern and Yourtours and their caring staff really made the process a less stressful and enjoyable one. We felt we were in good hands.
        We booked our airport to hotels transfer as well as 3 full day tours with 1 tour being a custom tour.
        Yourtours recognized our specific special needs and limitations and provided support to meet them. The logistical coordination and communication were amazing.
        We were met by Pascal S. at the airport. He was a warm and very friendly greeting after a long overnight flight which was so nice. He was very kind and super efficient and went above and beyond helping us get our 16+ pieces of luggage plus 3 walkers settled with the transport and then he rode with us to our hotel and made sure we were all set with check in.
        We did 3 days of tours. Porto, a custom Chaves tour designed for my 93year old father, and Braga & Guimaraes. I can’t begin to say enough wonderful things about our tour guide Nuno M. He was so friendly, considerate, caring, kind, infinitely patient, and his in depth knowledge of the geographical area and Portugal’s rich history, culture and food made the tours very enjoyable and extremely interesting. We learned so much and looked forward to each days tours. Nuno went out of his way to make sure our seniors especially my father, could access as much of the tour itinerary as possible. He was inclusive of them and their needs as well as making sure we still got to see such special places. If we couldn’t get out and walk an area due to our groups physical limitations, he made sure we still saw everything as close as he could get us in our vehicle. Nuno was particularly great with my parents and aunt. Always mindful of their needs and always lending a hand to make sure everyone was able to enjoy his tours safely and at a pace that was manageable. We never felt rushed. All of our lunches were included as well as afternoon stops for local pastries and beverages. It was nice to not have to be concerned about any of the extras. The food was plentiful, traditional and delicious. We got to know Nuno through our wonderful mealtime conversations and we were sad to part ways. He gave us an experience we will never forget and his special care for what this trip meant for all of us but especially for my father we will be forever thankful for.
        Pascal checked in with us daily and personally made sure our seniors made it safely back to the airport for our next flight. That is the personal care we received and it really made a difference in our trip.
        If we ever are able to travel to Portugal again someday we would not hesitate to book with Yourtours again. Outstanding experience start to finish. Thank you!
