Guided 3-day city trip in Porto by the Douro in Portugal

Porto at its best: sightseeing, wine tasting and a romantic cruise on the Douro

During this guided 3-day city trip, you discover the charming city of Porto, where there is a lot to see and do. Of course, Porto is the centre of Port wines, ruby, tawny, vintage... plenty to choose from! So, during this 3-day city trip in Porto, go for a tasting.

Porto is situated on the Douro River, which is synonymous with romance. The name Douro actually means "gold", which is why the Douro River is also called the "Golden River", and not without reason. Watching the sunset, you will immediately know why!

Our extremely knowledgeable English-speaking guide & driver knows Porto and the Douro region like the back of his hand. With great bravura and enthusiasm, he will tell you all about the charming city of Porto and the Douro region around it.

Porto and places of interest

We welcome you at Porto airport and start our mini-tour right in the centre of the city of Porto with its numerous attractions.

Put on your walking shoes, because we will leave the car behind before you and your private guide explore the city. Don't feel like walking a lot? To give your feet a rest, you can take a hop-on hop-off bus between the different locations and choose what you want to visit. Ask our guide for more information.
