What you'll do

Airbnb awarded this tour in 2019 as the MOST UNIQUE ACCESS EXPERIENCE to Douro, based on consumers choice of authenticity, history and best customers feedback.
We are very happy with the return of our guests about our commitment and passion for the Douro Valley.

We are a family business with high quality standards and personalized to give you a lifetime experience

Let's go live an out-of-the-box wine experience

Let's visit the less touristy douro, for us what matters is the charismatic people that you will know throughout the all experience. Authentic people, with tons of knowledge, but with a lot of character and personality.

Forget about the biggest commercial brands, it´s not for us.

With me you will learn the whole history of wine but in a fun way not boring, let's talk about table wines that we drink every day, but also the famous Port wine

We start with a cruiize in a private boat, where we will taste Douro delicacies and drinks with the crazy pirates :) to explain us all the authentic stories of the Douro Valley.

Then we will have an exclusive visit with the winemaker in a small producer and get ready for some surprises you will love... we also have wines here, of course.

Lunch is in a 1735 house, a small family winery where we will have lunch facing the vineyard to taste the wines of the property, including old Tawnys 10/20/30

Be ready for the perfect day...

    We loved our day with Manuel & our your group. A tad overpriced but if your willing to splurge, you will enjoy your time immensely.

    My wife and I had a great time on this Airbnb experience. Manuel was fully committed to ensuring we had a unique and lively day. Manuel was a fantastic host, full of energy, regularly checking to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. the day started with a river boat ride, then a private wine tasting, a wonderful lunch, then the day finished with a port tasting. it was a solid, memorable day that I'll recommend to friends and family that visits Porto. Beyond worth it.

    A great, high energy tour of the Douro valley! Manuel and his son Nuno were super fun and thoughtful guides. All the locals we interacted with from the boat trip to the vineyard were super friendly and informative. An awesome way to see the valley and meet the people behind it.

    Manuel is an excellent gregarious host! This is more of a wine/experience tour, as you only visit one winery but the other stops are wonderful, a non-touristy restaurant where you get to eat at a restaurant with a gorgeous view like a local, and taste wine that’s from such a small/new vineyard they don’t even have a tasting room. Then the boat trip was an hour of history with a separate company that specializes in boat trips. The sunset views on the drive home were gorgeous. We were staying in the Douro valley afterwards and we were able to get dropped off after the tour. Photos provided afterwards were a nice touch. Thank you Manuel and Nuno!

    This was the highlight of our entire trip. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an intimate experience checking out both small and large Port producers, with some great food along the way.

    Overall it was a great experience with fun guides, and they provide a very thoughtful and comprehensive beginners introduction to wine and the Douro Valley region. I liked the contrast between a small and large estate (although the large estate was disappointing after the intimacy of the small imho).
