Det skal I lave

Guided visit to Quinta da Roêda, Croft Port Wines, and tastings. The guide will show and explain the history of Port Wine, walk through the estate, the winery, the cellar and inform about the wines being tasted where a board with cheese, jam and biscuits join the tasting.

An 1 hour relaxing private boat ride on the Douro river will take people to see the slopes of the hills full of vineyards from a bottom perspective. A glass of Port will be served and delicacies.

And lunch, in a typical restaurant of the region, where we eat the same as the workers who go there, makes us feel one of them, someone who wants to share their habits and feel what it is to be Portuguese in the Douro It is worth noting that in 2001 Unesco classified it as a World Heritage Site.

After lunch people head to Quinta da Foz, a small Douro table wine producer in Casal de Loivos, a small village 500 meters altitude where all can have a breathtaking bird´s eye view to the valley and river. Without any rush people will have an explanatory guided tour, 3 wines tasting, as well as olive oil tasting, enjoying the wonders of life seated on a big balcony with the "paradise" under their eyes. Only small vehicules can get there

My name is Guilherme Ferreira and since 2015 I have provided the fantastic experience of taking people to the amazing Douro Valley and showing them the unique landscapes of the region and the Mountain Viticulture, as well as the gastronomy and the people who have transformed this landscape into vineyards well aligned in their small terraces, man-made, with walls made of stone, to avoid soil erosion with rainfall.
Understanding the reason for things is my great passion, I am curious by nature, I talk a lot with people who live and work in the region and the transmission of this knowledge, ever richer and greater, causes immense pleasure and absolute satisfaction.
This experience and enrichment, coupled with a very well spent day, is what I provide daily to our friends and that assures me it was one of the best experiences ever had.

Her skal du være

Quinta Roêda produces Croft Port Wines and belongs to a group called The Fludgate Partnership that holds Croft, Fonseca and Taylors, very well known brands in the world. The visitors center is quite new and very nice.
Boat ride will be in a replica of the typical "Rabelo" boats.
Lunch is in Rufete Restaurant, not fancy but real typical.
Quinta do Jalloto is located 500 meters altitude, with a big balcony to enjoy the amazing bird´s eye view.

Nous avons passé un excellent moment avec Patricia. Elle est venue nous chercher et nous ramener à la porte de notre logement. La communication était parfaite, histoire, anecdotes de la région du Douro... Tout était parfaitement préparé. Il a fallu cependant faire un test antigénique pour visiter la cave Sandeman. La guide était très intéressante. Le lieu assez unique. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la visite de Quinta dos Castelares, avec une guide également au top, passionnée par son métier. Expérience très belle et complète. Obrigado

Absolutely wonderful trip and well Worth the money. Considering the locations are almost 1.5 hrs from Porto it would be impossible to do this as efficiently on your own. Santiago as a guide was excellent and wonderfully hospitable.

An excellent way to spend a day in the Douro Valley, when on a short trip to Porto. Patricia picked us up from our where we were staying and stayed with us during the day. She was an excellent guide, and super knowledgeable about history, wine, and the Douro Valley. Trip was well organised. Got to taste some wines, port, olive oil and honey. We were blessed with beautiful weather. Views were awesome.

Our tour guide Patricia definitely made a big difference. She is energetic and bubbly and makes it fun throughout the tour. Her knowledge is excellent and makes sure that she transmits this to all the people. Patricia's humor is at another level.

Whether you're a wine connoisseur or not much of a wine person, I think you'll get something out of this experience. Met some great people from all over the world too, and drank wine, I couldn't have asked for a better day.
