What our guests are saying

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.

Working with Sara and having her expertise gave us a great experience with a private day tour of the Douro Valley. She was very prompt in replying to emails, providing suggestions and asking questions to make sure we had a great unique experience. Communication was excellent all the way from the beginning stages to the actual day of the tour. Our tour guide, Tommy, was absolutely fantastic. He was prompt at pick up, gave us additional information in regards to the wines and the area, and was easy going to make our day perfect. If you are looking at using them for a tour please do so, we have a great experience and will recommend them to all our friends from the states as they visit this region!

All your questions answered… and then some!

Which destinations are available for custom tours?

We specialize in organizing bespoke tours in the Douro Valley, where we have established a vast network of premium partners over the years. Our custom tour offerings in the Douro Valley include wine tastings with winemakers, luxury yacht river cruises, and Michelin-starred dining experiences. Your imagination and budget are the only limits to the possibilities we can offer.

Is it possible to join an existing tour group to reduce the cost of the tour?

We apologize, but our tours are exclusively private tours, and we do not combine different groups of clients. At our company, we firmly believe in our value proposition, which emphasizes privacy and the customization of tours to meet our clients’ needs, making private tours the best option.

If pricing is a concern, we recommend booking one of our standard tours, which are more cost-effective than a customized tour.

If the pricing of our standard tours is still not within your budget, we suggest exploring online group tour companies as an alternative option.

I am a solo traveler – Is it possible to join one of your tours?

Although we deeply empathize with solo travelers (Sara, our founder, has traveled solo around the globe), we regret to inform you that we are unable to accommodate them on our tours. As a small boutique company, conducting a tour for a single person would not be financially feasible.

If you are traveling alone, you may consider booking a tour for two people with us, but we acknowledge that this can be a costly option. Alternatively, we suggest exploring group tour operators for a more affordable alternative.

Do you organise Family friendly tours?

The availability of family-friendly tours depends on the destination of your choice.

In Porto, our tours primarily focus on history and are not specifically tailored for families. However, we warmly welcome children on our tours and our guides are exceptionally patient and friendly. Additionally, we make a special stop at the best ice cream shop in town to ensure an enjoyable experience for kids.

In Douro Valley, we offer dedicated family tours. For further details, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

We understand that sometimes things don’t go as planned when you’re traveling, and you may need to cancel your reservation. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Our cancellation policy allows you to cancel up to 48 hours before the tour starts and receive a FULL refund. That way, you can book your tour with us without worrying about unforeseen circumstances.

If you need to cancel your reservation, just send us an email and we’ll take care of the rest.

What if I want to change the date of my tour?

We understand that plans can change, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. If you need to change the date of your tour, please let us know as soon as possible and we’ll check our availability.

While we can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to change the date, we’ll do everything we can to find a suitable alternative for you. If we have availability on the requested date, we’ll be happy to reschedule your tour.

What if I still got some questions?

Sure! Please email them to – but please make sure that your question is truly not cover on this page 😉
