Description

This is a 10 hour Porto Private tour departs from Lisbon at 7:30 AM at your Hotel. Forged by some of history's leading architects, Porto's majestically adorned valleys combine Latin charisma, Baroque flair, and a peculiarly British streak as sweet as the region's Port wine. Take this opportunity to discover the famous and emblematic city of Porto and enjoy a marvelous journey by a comfortable Minivan with WiFi from Lisbon to Porto, in a first-class experience. Discover the most important and notable monuments of Porto (Dom Luis Bridge, Clerigos Tower, Porto Downtown, Porto Cathedral and others). Admire the incredible and crystal-clear Douro River and its beautiful riverbanks and visit one of the most famous Port Wine Cellars with a Port Wine tasting. 

At 7:30 am, your private driver/guide picks you up at your hotel. You'll arrive in Porto around 10:30am after a stop to relax and grab food or drinks. Upon arrival in Porto, your driver/guide leads you to the city’s main sites. You will see the Arrábida Bridge, Porto Sé Cathedral, Bolhão Market, Torre & Igreja dos Clérigos, Lello Bookshop and São Bento Train Station. Ponte de Don Luis, Gustave Eiffel's Dom Luis Bridge is as spectacular as the views from it. Cross the Douro to the famous port wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia for sun-soaked panoramas of both cities.

Around 1pm there will be time allotted for lunch (not included in the tour price) at riverside Ribeira Square, a good time to drink a Porto wine. Here you will have the option to indulge in a traditional Portuguese lunch in one of the most beautiful parts of the city or continue to a nearby fishing village for the catch of the day grilled on the barbecue.

After lunch, you'll traverse the Douro River on the Eiffel inspired Dom Luis Bridge to Vila Nova de Gaia, where you will visit a famous port wine cellar for a tour and tasting, learning all about the production, harvesting, and transportation of this unique drink as well as enjoying the view and pure ambiance of the cellar.

At around 4pm, you'll head back to Lisbon with a breathtaking drive along the ocean, passing the Cheese Castle (Castelo de Queijo), the trendy Foz district, the Arrábida Bridge (Ponte da Arrábida), and arriving in Lisbon around 7:30pm.
