What you'll do

Guided visit to Quinta da Roêda, Croft Port Wines, and tastings. The guide will show and explain the history of Port Wine, walk through the estate, the winery, the cellar and inform about the wines being tasted where a board with cheese, jam and biscuits join the tasting.

An 1 hour relaxing private boat ride on the Douro river will take people to see the slopes of the hills full of vineyards from a bottom perspective. A glass of Port will be served and delicacies.

And lunch, in a typical restaurant of the region, where we eat the same as the workers who go there, makes us feel one of them, someone who wants to share their habits and feel what it is to be Portuguese in the Douro It is worth noting that in 2001 Unesco classified it as a World Heritage Site.

After lunch people head to Quinta da Foz, a small Douro table wine producer in Casal de Loivos, a small village 500 meters altitude where all can have a breathtaking bird´s eye view to the valley and river. Without any rush people will have an explanatory guided tour, 3 wines tasting, as well as olive oil tasting, enjoying the wonders of life seated on a big balcony with the "paradise" under their eyes. Only small vehicules can get there

My name is Guilherme Ferreira and since 2015 I have provided the fantastic experience of taking people to the amazing Douro Valley and showing them the unique landscapes of the region and the Mountain Viticulture, as well as the gastronomy and the people who have transformed this landscape into vineyards well aligned in their small terraces, man-made, with walls made of stone, to avoid soil erosion with rainfall.
Understanding the reason for things is my great passion, I am curious by nature, I talk a lot with people who live and work in the region and the transmission of this knowledge, ever richer and greater, causes immense pleasure and absolute satisfaction.
This experience and enrichment, coupled with a very well spent day, is what I provide daily to our friends and that assures me it was one of the best experiences ever had.

Guilherme war sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend und ist auf unsere individuellen Wünsche eingegangen. Ich kann mir keinen besseren Ausflug ins Douro-Valley vorstellen: kleine Gruppe, persönlich, lecker, einfach toll!

This was a wonderful, personalized experience. A must-do in Porto if you find yourself having an extra day. My boyfriend and I were greeted by Guilherme’s charming personality bright and early in the morning (hassle free pick up) that set a great tone for the day. His knowledge of Portugal was very impressive. The tour consisted of 2 wineries, lunch, and a boat ride - needless to say, great value for your buck. Highly recommend this experience if you’re looking for an awesome day in Douro Valley! Thank you for making us feel so welcome and taking time to get to know us!
