“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!”
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. Donâ€™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.
