Great Tour
Feb 2020 • Friends
My brother and I booked at very short notice (2230 the night before). Our guide Karla turned up the next morning bright and early with a smile on her face. Karla was a great guide and gave us lots of information about anything we wanted to know. The views were amazing along with the lunch, olive oils, wines and port. Karla has defiantly picked the right places to visit. Highly recommend them.

Nice trip
Oct 2019
Very well organized, tour guide picked us up right in front of our apartment. The river cruise is very nice (would be great if it’s not so packed, but guess that can’t be help). Wine tasting was pretty generous, the lunch also have wine included and a whole bottle was given to our table, Lunch was in the vineyard, very nice setting.

Leave the driving to Luís
Sep 2019 • Friends
There were four in our group plus another couple so it was a good size and we got to meet some new people along the way. It was about an hour before we arrived in the area, then we drove on a small curvy road that followed along the river for some great views to Pinhão. The boat ride was a nice break from driving. We then went into the hills to a olive oil/winemaker. The owner lead a great tour of his family business and we tasted his wine and olive oil from a vertigo inducing deck with amazing vineyard views. Then lunch in a vineyard and tasting at a beautiful estate. The fish was delicious! There was a lot of day drinking involved that I didn’t expect but we decided to roll with it. The price was only about €30 more than the big bus tour. We all enjoyed Luís being our local tour guide for a relaxing and fun day during our visit to Porto.

Great tour of the stunning Duoro valley
Our guide Milena and driver Sophia were entertaining and informative companions on our 9 hour trip along the valley. The vineyards were interesting, the wines and food good and the scenery stunning. We thoroughly recommend this excellent and full day trip.

Brilliant day out
Sep 2018 • Friends
Our driver Carla was not only an accomplished driver but also very friendly and knowledgable. We spent a great day in the valley, enjoying breathtaking scenery. We stopped at two wineries...perhaps one winery and then a farm producing local things would have been better. The lunch stop was really good, not just the food which was tasty and plentiful but also for the views from the terrace. The boat trip was peaceful but would have been better with some sort of commentary about the past and present importance of the river. The drive back into a busy Porto was fun too as we were not doin* the driving. An exhilarating day out in a very scenic part of Portugal

Not worth the money for this tour company
Sep 2018 • Friends
My low rating is simply because of the tour company- not the tour guide OR the region itself. Our tour guide was Tito (I think, don't quite remember his name because it's been a few weeks!) and he was AMAZING! He is the only reason I gave this tour a 3/5 instead of a 1/5 or 2/5. He was funny, knowledgeable, and really was engaged with our tour group. He was fantastic!

Unfortunately, the tour itself was pretty bad. The first winery we stopped at we had to wait about 20 minutes for another van to show up and when we went inside, it looked like a cafeteria. We walked through the winery for about 15 minutes, then they played a video for us that lasted nearly 30 minutes! We got no information about to two wines they gave us, simply "one is red and one is white"

Lunch was good and the second winery was much better but, still not worth the money. The boat ride was okay but at that point we were ready to go back and would've totally forego-ed that option and head to Porto instead. There were other tour companies that had much better reviews, but unfortunately they were sold out. Recommend trying to book with one of those instead. Unfortunately I think you'll be disappointed.

Dear Megan F, Thank you very much for taking time to review us and our guide Tito, we truly appreciate it!! We were disappointed to hear that we were not happy with the tour. In regards to waiting for the other van, it is perfectly normal. If you wanted a more personalized visit would have to opt for a private tour rather than a regular tour. Regarding the video you watched, is considered the best video, by the institute of Port wine for familiarization with port wine. For us it is sad to know that it was only a banal video. As for the wine tasting, it is up to each of the guides to explain the differences, which would be to tell once more what you saw in the video. But tell the date and in relation to the red mention it was Ruby or Tawny. We're sorry we did not meet your expectations. Thank you. Greetings, The team MERIDIAN4PEOPLE TOURS PORTUGAL
