About the Activity
If you love history just like us, or if you simply want to experience the valley’s beautiful landscapes, traditional villages and monuments, award-winning wineries, and taste the amazing local food and wine, this is the tour for you! Our Cultural tour will take you on a journey through the historic villages of Garganta, Sabrosa, Provesende, and Pinhão.

The tour begins by traveling back in time to the Neolithic where you’ll visit the oldest Dolmen in the region. Near the village of Garganta, we will visit a small museum where you can learn a bit more about the ancient local history and the reconstruction of the Castro, a fortified settlement from the Iron Age that you will later visit.

Continuing our tour to Sabrosa we’ll stop at São Martinho de Anta and visit Espaço Miguel Torga by Eduardo Souto Moura, 2011 Pritzker award winner. While roaming through this beautiful town we will visit the Castro of Sabrosa. Next, we’ll go for a short walk in the center of Sabrosa where we’ll stop by Ferdinand Magellan’s house and talk about the first circumnavigation of the globe.

Lunch will be served at a restaurant located inside an old winery, followed by a visit to one of the best wineries in the area for a wine tasting, all-inclusive of your tour.

Next on our journey, Provesende, a stunning historic village of the Douro, where we will talk about the Portuguese “pelourinhos” and about the man who saved the region from phylloxera while observing one of the most impressive viewpoints of the Douro Valley.

Along with the beautiful scenery, we will continue to Pinhão, nestled in the heart of the wine country, where we will stop at the train station to marvel the famous Portuguese tiles depicting the local landscapes and traditional activities of the region, and the incredibly steep vineyards around us.

We will end the day at arguably the best port wine tasting winery, one of Douro’s most renowned estates, sitting by the margins of the river where you will learn about the port-making process, see the port casks, and sample some fascinating Ports by the sunset.

    “Douro valley in one day” We had an excellent full day tour with João Koehler, while visiting the Douro valley. João was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the area from him. He took us to a wonderful location for viewing the Douro Valley. Our tour then included a visit to two wineries, and a wonderful authentic Portuguese lunch. It was a wonderful day and I highly recommend this company. Taylor, 01 fev 2020
