Taste of the Douro Valley

Porto old town skyline on the Douro River, Portugal

Escorted Group Tours

Food

A masterclass in scenery and in winemaking, Portugal’s Douro Valley is a tapestry of meandering rivers and undulating hillsides, quilted into tightly woven vineyards and dotted with whitewashed quintas. On this guided tour holiday, we start in Porto, explore tiled mansions and cobbled squares, duck across the river into the cellar doors of Vila Nova de Gaia, the centre of Portugal’s port industry. Travelling on the river and by train and road we spend wonderful days exploring the historic wineries, rustic villages, and medieval towns of the Douro Valley.
