Things to do Douro Historical Tour with Winery,Cruise and Lunch

This tour will show the historical importance of the Douro region, not only for the winemaking process but also for the Portuguese identity.

Travel in comfort to the Douro Valley, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. An enchanted valley, where green and gold combine perfectly with the course of the river. Without a doubt, it can be said that the Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Feel nature at its purest!

As you will learn on this full-day guided tour, the Douro region is of enormous importance to the wine culture for its excellent wines, including Port Wines. For over 2,000 years, traditional landowners have produced Port Wines in the Douro.

Our first stop is in Amarante. This town became very important after the arrival of Saint Gonçalo (1187-1259), one of the most famous saints in Christian history. He settled here after his pilgrimage to Rome and Jerusalem, making this town an important religious stop in Portugal. You can visit the convent and church, but also observe its beautiful bridge over the Tamega River or explore its old historic center.

Our day will continue to one of the most amazing places of this tour: the Galafura viewpoint. Also known as the São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint, this place will take your breath away. From the top of its 640 meters, you will have a privileged view over the Douro River and the surrounding landscape. We promise you that this is one of the highlights of this excursion.

After all the contemplation, it's time for a traditional lunch . Have the opportunity to taste the best of Douro gastronomy in a family restaurant, where the food follows homemade and family recipes.

The tour continues to Pinhão, one of the most beautiful and charming villages in this region. Stop for a 1-hour scenic cruise on the waters of the Douro River. Take in the breathtaking natural sights and beautiful vineyards - enjoy!

Finish the day with a fantastic visit to a Winery, where you won't miss the opportunity to taste excellent regional wines and learn all about Port wine culture and its elaboration process.

Return comfortably to Porto, observing the beautiful landscapes between the Douro and the Invicta city.
