Best Douro tour I could have imagined
theSaltiest1, 23-09-2022
Violeta, our tour guide, was absolutely outstanding. Weird honestly can't convey how far she exceeded all expectations, which were pretty high to begin with. Her cultural, historical, and wine knowledge offered wonderful insight that she tastefully wove into the experience. Quinta de Cume in particular was a lovely, small producer winery that we loved. Violeta was friends with the wine maker, which added a whole additional layer of personal touch and authenticity to the visit there.
Perhaps most of all though she was just such a delightful, fun, and hilarious person. She wasn't just doing out her job, it was clear she was genuinely having fun with it, connecting with us as individuals, and making sure we were having a great time the whole day.
I cannot recommend this tour and Violeta enough. Unbelievable service and experience for the price. Honestly why are you still on TripAdvisor... Go book it already!
Fantastic tour guide - made the trip more incredible

Fantastic tour guide - made the trip more incredible, Violeta the tour guide is a history graduate, so the trip was made even more fantastic with all the knowledge she shared.
In reality her major could be in wine and Port as she gave so much information.
It was a small tour so perfect for me
The food and wine was incredible
Excellent tour experience

Small Group Douro valley tour with boat cruise and wine tastings
Debbie S, 22-09-2022
Tripadvisor booking was good as they also were communicating on the chat as to pick up location to confirm and sent and email . Hotel pick up was a must for us.

The guide Violetta was fantastic
She picked us up at the hotel.
Small group of just 5 people in a nice comfortable van with AC.
She was very knowledgeable of the region of Porto and made us comfortable from the start .
She told us what to expect on the tour and the time to travel to the Douro valley. The road was very windy and steep. She drove very careful.

The first wine tasting and olive oil stop was so beautiful !!
Then onto to the boat tour up the Douro river. Spectacular views of the vineyards.
Lunch after at perfect restaurant with table service. We are vegetarian and they accommodated our needs . Lovely pasta. Coffee, dessert.
Second was a small local owned port winery Moraccos.
Can’t say enough about this tour.
Small group is the best as personal and no waiting for the tastings and Lunch.
The tour guide made this whole tour the best for us.
Violetta is certainly in her element with her career choice. She was dynamic , funny and knew the tour operators very well. We can tell she is very respected in the tour industry.
A sublime semi-private Douro Valley Wine experience —With Mub Tours
ArielleE, 24-09-2022
Maria Sanchez of Mub tours (Porto) gave us a wine and Douro River experience of a lifetime! This was a semiprivate tour with only one other person. Maria drove, narrated, took us to two vineyards on opposite sides of the valley, during which we sampled reserve and grand reserve whites, reds and tawny port, some of the best we’ve ever tasted, with full narration and tours of the wine making facilities from young and knowledgeable oenologists. We were treated to a delicious gourmet lunch. I’d say Maria is one of the best and most caring, funny guides we’ve had in Spain or Portugal. I’d recommend Maria Sanchez and Mub without reservation or hesitation.
