Absolutely a wonderful day with a very professional driver/guide. He was extremely informative and and very kind. We learned a great deal about the region and saw so much. The wine tour/tasting and lunch were top notch. The river cruise was a nice afternoon activity. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience this region in a day ( without staying in the Duoro region) as we were driven back to Porto at the end of the day.

Overall, we enjoyed the excursion but not necessarily feeling like we got the value for the cost of the excursion as compared to other available market options. Essentially, we had a private car service for the day and a driver who was very friendly and knowledgeable that provided us some good back-ground information during a few stops.
