About Douro Valley Tour

This is an upstream ride. A contemplation tour. We will follow the Douro’s personality that runs in curves and counter curves, where the Romans two thousand years ago insisted on producing wine, on these steep slopes. In the words of the Portuguese poet, Miguel Torga “Douro is an excess of nature. A geological poem. Absolute beauty.” We will pass by terraces and vine-covered terraces that are today a World Heritage (UNESCO). The first stop is Amarante with its famous medieval bridge that crosses the Tamega River. We continue to Peso da Régua, the capital of wine and vineyards, where the Rabelos boats filled with wine left for Porto. In the heart of Douro, we pass Pinhão with its famous railway station where the tiles tell us all the adventures of Port wine. Then we will visit one of the wine farms and observe the whole process of making Port wine and taste some of its different varieties.

This single-day tour is always supported by the comfort of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles, driven by our certified professional driver-guides.

Douro Valley Tour - Itinerary


We will begin one of the most beautiful tours in Portugal with a visit to Amarante, a small town where the splendor of its history will capture the imagination. The Tamega River, a tributary of the Douro River, runs through the town and gives it a special attraction. You can admire Amarante’s medieval European landscapes where the crystal waters of its river mirror the lush vegetation of the two margins crossed by a large arched granite medieval bridge. We will visit the Church of Saint Gonçalo, built in the 16th century, where the Saint lived and is buried.

Peso da Régua

Here, we arrive at the vineyards of the high Douro Valley. This is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. Peso da Régua is the world’s capital of winery. It was from here that the “Rabelos”, name given to the boats that transported the Porto wine barrels from the vineyards, sailed to the docks of Gaia to be matured in the wine cellars there before being sold worldwide. Nowadays it is major stop for Douro River cruises that visit the high Douro Valley and it is also a UNESCO world heritage site.


In the heart of the high Douro Valley and after crossing dazzling landscapes of hillsides embellished with terraced vineyards where the Douro River flows with abundant beauty, we reach the charming town of Pinhão, bathed by the waters of this river. Located in this region, we can find many vineyards and wine estates which produce the famous Douro wines. We will also stop and visit the local railway station which is famous for its decorative tiles depicting the wine making process and production. We will have lunch here (optional) in one of the many typical local restaurants.

Winery, Visit and Wine Tasting

If you so wish, we can visit one of the local wineries (recommended) where you can observe all of the preparation and wine making process of Porto wine and you will also have the opportunity to taste the different varieties of Porto (White, Ruby, Tawny and Vintage).
