We had an amazing tour of 2 Douro Valley vineyards with our guide, Tommy who was not only superbly knowledgeable about the area but has also developed real, personal relationships with the people running the wineries! Amazing private tours of the vineyards, totally absent of big tour groups with producers who were truly passionate about their craft. On our way to Porto, Tommy shared his favorite local restaurants and we dined at one of them – the meal was terrific and local (no tourists there!). Book this tour, you won’t regret it!
My wife and I had a private wine tour in the Douro valley with Tommy and he was fantastic. Not only does he know everything about the wineries, he knows where to go in town for a great meal at local places away from the tourists. It was a pleasure to spend the day with him and learn about the Douro valley history and wines. If you are looking at using them for a tour just do it, we have a great experience and will recommend them to all our friends from the States as they visit this region!
My family and I had a wonderful time touring Douro Valley with Tommy, and without any reservations would recommend this tour with Portoalities. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, personable and an overall perfect tour guide. In addition, the quintas we toured were excellent and winemakers informative, and the local restaurant chosen for lunch was great as well (and only frequented by locals, as promised!). Tommy recommended the dish we had at lunch, which was some of the best pork I’ve ever eaten. Sara was very responsive in helping us organize our trip. Well worth the price. Highly recommended.
Sara was a wonderful tour guide for our Douro Valley day trip. We were blown away by our stop at the first winery, and equally impressed with our lunch option. The afternoon winery was also just so scenic and Sara did a great job keeping us on schedule so we did not miss any of the events. She was also very entertaining and knowledgeable across so many different subjects. Sara was kind enough to make us dinner reservations for that evening, and also gave us numerous tips about how to spend the rest of our time in Porto. Everything was just as we expected and more, as she went above and beyond on this tour. We would absolutely contact Sara again for our next trip back to Porto!
