About the Activity
Enjoy a fascinating tour through the Douro Valley, and discover fabulous landscapes departing from Porto. This experience takes you to some of the most beautiful villages in Portugal: Amarante, Galafura e Pinhão. Learn about the unique culture and heritage of this old demarcated region. Visit 1 wine estate, embark on a 1-hour river cruise and have a typical lunch!

Start your tour around 08:20 a.m and explore the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where wine has been produced by traditional landowners for around two thousand years. It is the oldest demarcated region in the world, where excellent wines are produced, including Port Wine.

Our first stop is in Amarante. This city becomes very important in history after S. Gonçalo's arrival (1187-1259) - one of the most renowned saints in the Christian history. He settled himself here after his pilgrimage through Rome and Jerusalem, making this city an important religious stop in Portugal. You may visit the convent and church, but also its beautiful bridge and historic centre.

The trip continues to Galafura, a small village near Peso da Régua.

On the way, stop to see The Miradouro de São Leonardo de Galafura near Covelinhas, parish of Galafura. From the top of its 640 meters, you have a privileged view over the Douro river and the surrounding landscape. This is one of the highlights of your day! Make sure you take your camera and don't miss a thing!

You will also find here a geodesic landmark, as this is the highest place in the area.

After all the contemplation, it's time for a fantastic lunch in a family owned restaurant, where the food is homemade and drinks are included.

The tour continues to Pinhão, one of the most beautiful and charming villages of this region. Stop to relax on a 1-hour scenic cruise. The views to the vineyards are just gorgeous! Take a moment to enjoy!

End your day with a fantastic visit to a local wine estate, where you will have the opportunity to taste wine and learn about how the precious Port Wine is grown.  

The tour ends with the hotel drop-off.
