We spent two days in Duoro, exploring small boutique wineries and port houses. Our guide, Tommy, was awesome - funny, knowledgeable and incredibly thoughtful about each aspect of our trip. We had requested a customized itinerary and Tommy & Sara really delivered - each place we visited was unique and provided a special experience we couldn’t have done on our own. Sara responded to my emails quickly and put together an amazing two days through the valley for us. Definitely don't think twice about reaching out to her and letting her know what kind of experience you want. She will make it exceptional!
If you want to feel like an insider in Porto, go on a tour with Sara. As well as being a tour filled with historical and cultural insights, Sara is happy to share her favorite secret spots - historical, cultural, gastronomical. In advance, we asked Sara to take us on a tour of HER favorite neighborhoods, so we could get a sense of the 'real' Porto. She gave us a shortlist to choose from before we headed off, to be sure it was tailored to our interests, and it was! - including a fascinating secret garden, ruins in a Metro station, and the most delicious local lunch. Others are too secret and special to share online (!) not something you hear too often.
I was having a difficult time finding a company that offered what I wanted, so I was so happy to find Portoalities, which was able to structure our tour to exactly what I was looking for. We were able to taste from a small producer, who made great ports and were a joy to speak with, and a medium producer with great wines and a beautiful property. Additionally they provided transportation to and from our location, making it very convenient. Sara was a wonderful tour coordinator and I loved the fact that the tour focused on Portuguese owned wineries. It was a great experience and would definitely recommend.
