About the Activity
In this experience we invite you to a wonderful tour through the Douro in the Portuguese Presidential Train. 

Climbing the steps of the Presidential Train is like entering a time machine, where you can sense the aroma and hear purposeful music. The trip begins and ends at the magnificent São Bento Station, in the center of Porto. Each guest will have their travel place in 6, 3 or 2 seater cabins. Lunch will be served along the Porto - Vesuvius trip, in one of the 3 restaurant carriages - with 32, 20 or 16 seats.

At the end of lunch, and during a relaxing two-hour stop, our guests will have exclusive access to one of the oldest private wineries in the Douro, and a taste of the best Graham's Ports (some so rare they have never been marketed), a cigar lounge on the porch and, during the grape harvest, the chance to participate in the step of the grape.

The Quinta do Vesúvio, owned by the Symington family, whose company is recognized as the world leader in the production of Premium Port wines with brands such as Graham's, Cockburn's, Dow's and Warre's, is the most magnificent Quinta in the Douro and the few that are not open to the public.

On the Vesúvio-Porto trip, passengers will be able to freely enjoy the train and its many surprises, including the tea room, bar with live music and other experiences that we have prepared for our guests.

The crown jewel of Portugal’s railway, the Presidential Train has hosted Kings, Presidents, Heads of State and Popes for over a century. In 2010 the emblematic train was magnificently restored to its luxurious standard, maintaining the original furnishing and style that made it iconic, offers an exclusive trip in space and time.

The train departs from São Bento Station in Porto, with no scheduled stops until Vesúvio while the guests can experience the best dishes, wines and the breathtaking landscapes.

Get on board on this unforgettable journey!
