Flavors of the Douro
Taylor-made trip to Portugal
The best way to travel to Portugal: private trips, tailored to your wishes with every little detail organized. Porto and the Douro River, a region known for its urban landscape with more than ten centuries of history, its famous wines and its unique gastronomy.
Perched on a hill at the mouth of the Douro and peaking curiously into the Atlantic, Porto is a city with a special and welcoming light, as intoxicating as its wines. The Douro River winds through hills covered in vineyards and from its banks the charming old town of Porto climbs up the slope, with its narrow streets filled by rich air. Far up in the city you will find breath-taking viewpoints overlooking the treasured river.
