Porto review #3 : the Douro Valley 🏞️ the Douro Valley is an enchanting valley where the Douro wines (red, white, port, etc) are produced. We booked a whole day tour on @getyourguide which also included a tour guide, a river cruise on the Douro, hotel pick up, lunch (which included wine to drink too), 2 winery visits, and ofc port wine tastings 🍷the whole day took about 8 hours and it was quite fun as we saw some amazing sights and got to hang around with the other people on our tour who loved wine so we would say that it is a great activity to do if you love wine.
The wineries were not as grand as we hoped but they were privately-owned and quaint so it wasn't too bad. The weather was also sunny when we went so that made everything even better! ☺️
Rating: 10/10 the Douro Valley is so beautiful and a must see if you visit Porto. You can hop on a two-hour train from Sao Bento station and just take in the views and try all the wines 🥰
Rating for the tour package: 7.8/10 only because at almost £100/person I think we (mostly Sez) just expected the wineries to be a lot prettier than what we visited lol and the lunch which was included was alright, but it wasn't the best and the fish was overcooked & dry 🤫 but when you add everything which was included in the package + the convenience, the price does make sense to some extent. #portoreview#porto#dourovalley#douro#traveltips#portugal#port#wine#SezPKonTour
