We will pick up at your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan and head to the historical center where we'll take you on a walking tour to visit the most iconic and photographed places in the city of Porto, World Heritage Site.
Towards the other shore, lunch awaits. You'll have the opportunity to experience the best Portuguese traditional food, bon appetit.
After lunch, you will discover the magic on a 50-minute cruise. The tour is conducted in a Rabelo boat, a Portuguese typical boat of the Douro River that traditionally carried the port wine casks from Alto Douro, where the vineyards are located, to Vila Nova de Gaia Porto, where the wine was stored and later sold and shipped to other countries.
We still need to taste the nectar of the gods, so you'll have the opportunity to visit a Port Wine House and have a commented professional tasting of Ports!
We'll end our tour visiting the amazing town beaches following a visit to the amazing Monastery of Serra Do Pilar. When you get to the top of the Serra do Pilar take your camera. You will want to show all your friends photos of what you are about to see. In addition to the unique view from here, you will also find the monastery; it’s circular in shape and the only one of its kind in the whole country. We won’t tell you anything else, we prefer to see the photos later.
