The most complete tour to Douro Valley. Let me "open the doors of Douro" to you, and present you the best of two worlds: NATURE and WINE. I know the places with the BEST VIEWS, the SCENIC ROUTES and the BEST ESTATES (traditional, modern, commercial or family estates). I'll carefully select and plan for everything, including the place for lunch. You'll try the AUTHENTIC LOCAL FLAVORS, in a non-touristy place, in a village deep in the valley. The best way to really experience PORT WINE is to taste several different types of Port, from different years (different aging) and compare how they aged and evolved. That's why I'll offer you to taste the full range - Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Ports, and the others. And ... lets not forget that Douro also has amazing red and white wines. ABOUT DOURO ... It can be quite a shock, but in Porto the only thing we have regarding Port Wine are the big warehouses where the wine is stored and aging - the lodges. Everything else takes place 120 Kms (85 miles) from Porto - in Douro Valley. Douro Valley is the oldest demarcated wine region, with a denomination of origin, in the world. Land of the Port Wine, its heritage belongs not only to the Portuguese, but also to the British. Still? This is really a hidden place surrounded and protected by mountains that, besides preserving nature and people's simplicity, also creates the perfect micro climate necessary to grow the Port Wine grape varieties (all native). Douro started to produce extremely good red wines that were shipped out, from Porto. But, then Port Wine happened ... Since then, an industry was born changing the life of Douro and Porto until today.
