wine Tour in Douro

by Russel Wight

"Overall the tour was excellent! Alcides was a great driver, very knowledgeable about the area, and showed us a number of wonderful vantage points so that we can take pictures of the beautiful Douro valley. Also, I had mentioned to him that I am a Civil Engineer, and he took us to one of the locks along the river and we were able to see the boat go into the lock, which was very intersting! Overall the tour was great and wonderful journey to see the Douro Valley!"
