Amazing wines, passionate local people and breathtaking landscapes.
“Saúde to an unforgettable experience! We had the most beautiful experience exploring the Douro Valley wine region with Alfredo. His expertise, charm and and passion for wine and the Douro valley region shone through at every moment, from the breathtaking vineyard views to the delightful wine tastings. Alfredo's curated the perfect blend of wineries, each with its unique attraction, in exactly the right order. And let's not forget the delicious lunch and the magical boat ride along the Douro river. This tour was the true highlight of our trip, and I can't thank Alfredo enough for making it so memorable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an enriching wine tour in the Douro Valley. Saúde to an unforgettable experience!”

“Highly recommend wine testing tour Alfredo is a knowledgeable and thoughtful tour guide. We are a beginner in wine but he was very nice and patient and shared a lot of interesting facts about wine with us. We visited three different wineries and each has its own characteristics. I can not decide which one is my favorite because all of them are wonderful. We have our lunch in one of the wineries. The food was awesome and the restaurant had a great view. At the end of our trip, we took Alfredo’s recommendation and visited a beach near downtown Porto, where we saw beautiful sunset. We really enjoyed our tour with Alfredo. Although it took some travel time to get to the Douro Valley, we felt comfortable in the clean car. Also, the itinerary Alfredo planned is excellent. If you’re interested in wine, please don’t miss this tour!”

“Great Day in Douro Valley What a great day with Alfredo touring the Douro valley. Alfredo picked us at our hotel in Porto for the drive to the valley. Along the way he explained in great detail the history and details of wine making in Portugal. Upon arriving in the valley the day started with a great family owned winery that has been in the family for 38 generations. Beyond impressed with the operation and their wines. On to the next tasting which was equally as impressive but on a different scale. Here we had a fantastic lunch paired with wines. After all the food and wine went on a relaxing boat ride on the Douro river. Nice change of pace and viewpoint. Then to finish off the day with another excellent wine tasting a a winery with an amazing view of the valley. Could have just stayed there and gazed at that view all afternoon. But had to leave to head back to Porto. Alfredo was knowledgeable, funny and safe. Highly recommend.”

“Hands down the highlight of our trip to Portugal and the best option to explore the Duoro Valley! I can not stress this enough, if you are debating booking this please do yourself a favor and reserve as soon as possible. Alfredo picked us up from our Airbnb and proceeded to give us the highlight of our trip! On the way to the Duoro Valley, he explained to us so much about the area, the wines and culture of the valley. We stopped at 3 different wineries that gave us a variety of all that that Duoro has to offer, and had one of the best meals we ate during our trip. Alfredo also worked behind the scenes with me to plan a surprise proposal to my now fiancé at our last stop. He helped to make it absolutely perfect and we made memories that we will share for a lifetime. I think this speaks to his dedication to each of his clients to give them the best possible experience of the Duoro Valley. Book ASAP!!!”

“10 out of 10 recommend Alfredo for anything in Portugal! Alfredo was a delight! ! I traveled to Portugal for the first time and visited Lisbon, Porto and the Douro Valley… I found Alfredo through trip advisor and booked the Douro Valley day trip to visit wine cellars, have lunch and take a boat trip on the river. The Douro valley is a must see, and you'd be silly if Alfredo didn't guide you! It took him less than 5 minutes to understand my group dynamic and really understand us and our needs. He was very knowledgeable and respectful. He took us to places we would never have visited on our own which was truly amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend him, and I know that when I return to Portugal, Alfredo will definitely give us recommendations and take us to several villages to explore and truly see the culture of Portugal!”

“Best day in Portugal! Highly recommend this tour! Alfredo is an amazing host - super friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. He answered our many questions and taught us a lot. The day was also perfectly planned - several exclusive wineries and tastings, an excellent 3 course meal for lunch and a lovely cruise on the Douro River. Not to be missed if you are close to the Porto/Douro Valley area. Thanks a lot Alfredo!”

“Excellent tour! Believe the positive reviews! Yesterday Alfredo took my husband and I on a private wine tour with lunch in the Duoro Valley. We've done wine tourism all over the world, and our tour with Alfredo yesterday was one of the best we've ever done. Alfredo was charming, engaging and knowledgeable, taking us to places we would never have discovered on our own. We left with excellent wines to take home and felt like we made new friends. Thank you, Alfredo!”

“A Definite Portugal Highlight! out de 2022 I can’t say enough about the day my husband and I spent touring the Douro Valley! It was amazing! Our tour guide, Alfredo, was the absolute best. He was a wealth of knowledge - just an all around excellent guide. His attention to detail and desire to give us a “first class tour” of the region was evident right from the start of the tour. We visited 3 lovely wineries, had a delicious lunch and a private boat ride on the Douro River. I highly recommend Tourvent!”

“Absolutely Wonderful Douro Valley Tour out de 2022 Really happy with our choice to book a private Douro Valley tour with Alfredo and Tourvent. Alfredo picked us up in a very nice van with plenty of room for four adults. He provided just the right amount of Portugal history mixed with wine, grape and Douro Valley information. He has chosen some really wonderful vineyards for this tour and we really enjoyed the opportunity to connect with the actual owners/winemakers of the vineyards. Plus, a private boat tour as well which we really enjoyed! We didn't run into any other tour groups during the day and that is exactly what we had hoped for! By far our favorite part of our trip to Portugal. Douro Valley is beautiful and a tour with Tourvent is the way to see it for sure!”

“Highlight of our trip! nov de 2022 This tour was the absolute highlight of our trip! Alfredo was a wonderful guide and provided so much information about the region and wine/port. We learned so much about what makes Portugal wine so unique and special. Alfredo also put together a great combination of experiences ranging from a smaller winery to a larger, more commercialized one, plus some amazing views of the valley in between. We are so glad we booked this private tour as we were able to take our time but also access some wineries that wouldn’t be possible in a larger bus / van. We would recommend this tour to anyone looking to visit the Duoro Valley!”

“Alfredo and his fabulous wine tour will not disappoint you. This is the second time I have booked with Tourvent and each time has been a wonderful experience. Alfredo's knowlege of wine and the Douro Valley is excellent. His attention to detail made our tour seemless. My husband and 3 daughters in their 20'thoroughly enjoyed the three wineries we visited and the fantastic lunch we were served. Each winery was unique and offered something different. We will be back again!”

“Highlight of Trip to Portugal My wife, along with two of our close friends recently traveled to the Portugal. We hired Tourvent (aka Alfredo) to take us on a day trip to the Douro Valley wine country from our home base of Porto, Portugal. The whole experience was wonderful. Alfredo was prompt on our agreed upon pick-up time, conversation to and from our destinations were informational, enjoyable, and rewarding. All points of this trip have been carefully planned and executed and it showed! Each vineyard we visited was unique, with amazing wines, olive oils, traditions, and history. The scenery of the Duoro Valley is spectacular. This trip gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the wines while balancing the opportunity to take some amazing pictures along the way. Alfredo was one of the best hosts we have ever encountered on a hired, private tour. We would HIGHLY recommend him and his companies services. Don’t even consider another operator, this IS the one you should chose.”

“Best Day of Our Honeymoon Alfredo has the best job ever, and he created the best day of our honeymoon! We spent 2 amazing weeks on the road, and we were completely over wow'd everywhere we went. Then we met Alfredo for our private tour tasting and lunch, and had the best day ever. Alfredo used what little he knew about us to kicked off our day with the perfect small batch wine marler, Luis. Then as he learned more about us, he tailored the rest of the day to mirror our passion for discovering the Douro Valley. In addition, Alfredo is an excellent driver. Those winding, hilly roads are not easy to navigate and he expertly managed them in a downpour. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Alfredo and team, and are already planning our next adventure with him. Cheers!”
