Overview

Taste the best wines in the world, get to know the secrets and traditions of our vineyards while enjoying the wonderful landscapes of the Douro countryside.

Wine has been produced by traditional landholders for some 2,000 years. This was also the first region in the world to be regulated and demarcated for the production of wines in 1756, especially Port Wine, and became in 2001 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Whether it's a cruise on the river waters, wine tasting on a fantastic farm, or take a walk on the beautiful trails, we challenge you to embark on a tour at ancient terraces, where you can get in touch with the people of the Douro.

Reviews

What a great day!
Walkabout1378, 13-11-2021
I was happy to have found, Endless Weekend Tours for visiting The Valley of Douro in a way not being offered by a standard tour.
As doing a river cruise at a later date, I was more interested in seeing the Douro River from above. Visit a winery and places for port wine, being done by the cruise.
Again, Carlos, the Manager and myself were discussing/defining the journey, me, for places I don’t want to miss out and he, places I should be seeing too.
It was a great day, the weather just pleasant for driving around, seeing all those wineyards, old and new, small and big. Stopping at many viewpoints seeing this beautiful valley and it’s river from different angles. We even managed that I was able to ride the train for a while. What a day.
Thanks to Carlos, being open for suggestions and „new adventures“ I can highly recommend this company beside for standard tours, too for individual tours. In any way, being a good and careful driver too! Thanks a lot…..
Great experience visting a Finca and some small towns in Duero Valley!

Sehr gute Erklärungen während der Fahrt. Tolle Auswahl zweier unterschiedlicher Weingüter. Mittagessen im Lokal für Einheimische sensationell. Auf der Strecke immer wieder Stopps an spektakulären Aussichtspunkten. Unser Fahrer Carlos hatte ein Händchen für sowas.
Imperdível

Fiz o tour com os meus pais, que durou o dia inteiro, percorremos vários vilarejos maravilhosos e vinícolas de renome. O atendimento foi perfeito. Carlos foi extremamente profissional, pontual e nos deixou bem à vontade para decidir onde parar e o que fazer. Destaque também para o carro amplo e confortável. Recomendo muito esse passeio!!
