    We are a couple over 70 who has traveled extensively all over the world. For a change we wanted to be free of worrying about transportation and timetables, tickets and places to sleep and eat. Our trip along the Douro was full of surprises and close to nature, just what we enjoy. The only down side was the weather, a bit cool and damp, but the caring of our private guides made us forget this inconvenience. Thanks again!

    Our party of 4 adults had an excellent, reasonably priced 4 day private tour. The company took us to wonderful wineries and historical sights not seen by most tourists.
