What you'll do

***Important Information!***
Before booking, please be aware that this is an afternoon and night-time experience. Be prepared to get back to Porto around 1 AM.
This activity is weather-dependent! Please contact me before booking!

The Experience begins from the moment I pick you up in Porto. While in the car an explanation will be given regarding the history of the region.
After a 1h30 drive, we will arrive at Pinhão for a 1h cruise on the Douro.

Then we will visit Quinta do Tedo, have a guided tour of the Vineyard, ending with a Port tasting. Afterward, I will guide you through the terroir, explaining the particularities of this wine-producing region and the grape varieties that make it unique. A dinner will follow, also at the vineyard, with wine pairing.

Once the sun sets, we will head to the top of the hills, away from major sources of light pollution. While our eyes grow accustomed to the darkness, I will set up the telescope, and then we will begin the night sky observation - an introductory experience to astronomy. We will see the moon and its seas and craters, Jupiter and the Galilean moons, Saturn and its rings, some stars and constellations.

Once we wrap up the observation, we will head back to Porto. You can rest and enjoy the peaceful trip back to Porto in the luxurious and quiet Tesla!

My name is Sérgio Costa and I'm a biologist. The Douro has been the home of my family for 4 generations and I know it like no one else. For me, the Douro is so much more than just the wines. The people, the places and the breathtaking views hold a special place in my heart.

Having graduated in Biology, I always felt connected to this land and I have a great passion for sustainability. This is why I chose to share the Region in an electric vehicle, a Tesla Model X. Each trip will save the environment from 80kg of harmful emissions!

A experiência foi incrível. O lugar é surreal. Sérgio é um excelente guia, conhecedor da região, cultura e história do local. Infelizmente o tempo chuvoso não foi favorável, porém Sérgio mudou alguns planos e conseguiu permitir que o dia fosse fantástico. Ele é muito gentil e prestativo. Eu realmente recomendo essa experiência.

Highlight of our entire European adventure! The experience far exceeded my expectations and they were high as it was. Sergio has curated a world class experience that involves premium transportation, exquisite food and wine and a depth of knowledge that will astound you. If you're visiting Porto, a tour with Sergio to the Douro valley is an absolute must!

This was hands down one of the best tours I’ve done. A very unique and special experience. Sergio is such an incredible guide, very knowledgeable about the area and went above and beyond for us. The best way to see the Douro Valley and get a taste of everything.

This experience was truly wonderful and Sérgio is a fabulous and knowledgeable guide! You won't be disappointed to take the trip with him in his beautiful car. We had an amazing afternoon at the Vineyard tasting Port along with a boat tour through the Douro Valley and a yummy dinner as the sun set at Quinta De Tedo. Sérgio went above and beyond to make the experience special and unique for us on our wedding anniversary. The star gazing really was the icing on the cake as me and husband managed to see the rings of Saturn, craters on the moon, and Jupiter. Sérgio was great at guiding us through the star constellations and answering any questions we had through the day and evening. All in all it was a truly magical experience and we would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a unique and special trip!

This was an incredible experience. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a unique experience to explore the Duoro Valley. On the way to the Valley Sérgio gave us background knowledge and told us a little about his experiences in Porto and the Valley. The Tesla is super comfortable. We did a wine tasting and Sérgio also showed us around the vineyard and gave us even more information to supplement the winery's guided tour. After a delicious dinner with drinks, Sérgio took us to the top of a mountain to set up his telescope. Along the way, we stopped at a few spots to explore a bit more of the area and take pictures. On top of the mountain, there were NO lights at all. It was completely dark. We had a great view of the night sky. It was completely lit up with stars. With Sérgio's telescope, we were able to see two planets (including rings) and a bunch of satellites. I slept the entire way back in the Tesla (it is super comfortable). Sérgio is extremely knowledgeable about both wine and astronomy (he has a PhD) and fun to hangout with. I've been on many airbnb experiences and nothing compares to Sérgios' tours. Highly recommend and look forward to doing another experience with Sérgio next time I am in Porto.

This was a one in a life time experience! If I could rate it 6 stars I would! How many people can say they went stargazing in the Duoro Valley? We got to see 2 planets and Sergio explained everything about them. This was our second experience with Sergio and his knowledge about everything he does still amazes me. We started the evening with a wine tasting and then had a nice dinner and finally ended the evening with stargazing with Sergio’s telescope. The ride back was late but Sergio’s Tesla was so comfortable that we all napped on the ride back! I cannot stress enough how unique this experience is and how highly I recommend both this experience and Sergio. I cannot wait to come back to Porto and will definitely do another experience with Sergio next time I’m back!
