Unforgettable Day

Genuinely unforgettable day with Joao. The itinerary was slightly different to the advertised, but all the more perfect for it. Very much personalised to our own tastes which we really appreciated. The visit to Quinta de Cumo was outstanding and unforgettable. Thank you Joao for the most memorable day.

From the moment my husband and I met João we knew this would be an unforgettable day! During our 10 day Portugal honeymoon we met João in the Douro Valley. We joined for our personal tour and set off to see the region. Having a personal chauffeur driving through the winding vineyard region was an absolute blessing! And by not being on a large bus, João was able to cater to everything we liked! We stopped at several breathtaking viewpoints that pictures just cannot do justice! We toured and tasted at several vineyards in the region, a favorite being Quinta do Bomfim in Pinhão! And had lunch on the riverside! This private tour with personal professional sommelier is something you just cant experience anywhere else. The car ride conversation brought to life the area with his local knowledge and the camaraderie he had with the guides at the wineries and restaurants made you feel like family. We were even lucky enough to try the local grappa called "aguardente". At the end of our tour João continued to be our guide for our next city by setting us up with tickets to the local Porto futebol game! As well as recommending wonderful restaurants to try in the Porto area. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for this one of a kind experience! Thank you João!
A great experience!

A charming, interesting and relaxing tour with an actual sommelier, who knows (and lives in) the Douro Valley. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore the Douro Valley and its wines! Professional and honest!
Absolutely stunning wine tour!

If you are looking for a relaxing and personal tour of the Douro valley with an extremely knowledgeable, yet unpretentious, guide than this is the trip is for you!

My wife and I had a private sommelier tour with João in May 2022 and it was absolutely amazing. João picked us up in Porto and drove us out to the Douro valley. On the way, we learned a lot about the valley, the different grape varieties, the wines they make and, naturally, about Port wine.

We tried some beautiful wines and some outstanding ports. We were introduced to locals and learned about the history and culture of the region. The trip included a lovely boat ride and a outstanding lunch (with wine, of course!)

I would go back in a heart beat! 10/10!
Unforgettable experience!

We had a terrific day with João. He is very knowledgeable and a very pleasant personality. The Douro Valley is magnificent, we visited 3 wineries of different styles and we definitely needed an experienced driver. This tour was worth every penny. Thank you João for this memorable day!
