This morning we had a super nice tour with our guide. I forgot her name (sorry!), but she knows who we are. And also she knows a lot of history and learned us a lot.
It was just the 4 of us, so it was...More
With the very accomplished Raphael as our guide this very easy paced tour was informative and included enough of the sites to really help us get a feel for the city and it’s layout.
Good value and many local tips from Raphael to add to...More
Raphael was an excellent guide showing us the side of Porto you can't find on a bus tour. He kept our 9 and 11 year old children interested and had a great knowledge of Porto - you could tell he loves this city. The stop...More
Fortunately for us we were the only two on this tour. David, our personal guide, had an in-depth understanding of his city and shared many stories about who, when, where, what and why. It was obvious that he loved this city and his relaxed yet...More
Just got back home after visit to Porto where my wife and I spent 5 days. On one of the days we fancied going out of the city and this was ideal. The mini bus picked us up from our hotel on time and drove...More
We took both the 3 hour city walking tour and the full day Douro Valley tour. Both of these tours would have only been average if not for our guide, Catia. She is not only knowledgeable but kind, sweet, generous and caring. She answered all...More
We were 4 family members who signed up for the full day Duoro Valley tour from Porto. We were picked up by the small van, and unfortunately the back seats (the only ones remaining besides the front next to the guide/driver) were not too comfortable,...More

We've received your complaint regarding a Tour to the Douro Valley that supposedly you've made with us.
Unfortunatelly we do not...More
My friends and I wanted to do a private tour, and this one was perfect. The tour guide picked us up from our hotel, and we headed to the Douro Valley. Our first stop was in Pinhao for the boat tour. It was very relaxing,...More
We really enjoyed this day & would recommend The Other Side as a company. We were picked up on time & the trip was exactly as advertised. The scenery was great - even on a rainy day! Our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable &...More
We did the one day tour which took us to two wineries and a restaurant for lunch. We paid extra for a river boat cruise.
We had a really fabulous day. The journey was not too long and the scenery was good. Both winery visits...More

I would go to The Other Side agency on rua Mouzinha da Silva and , if possible ask for Joao. They will sort everything out for you. In my opinion the best bet is to take the boat to Pinhao early morning and return by train in the evening.. don't pinch pennies by going half way.. do the full deal at about 80 Euros..the meals on the way up are unforgettable and well...the Douro valley sells itself! Bring lots of sunscreen and a hat since you will be on the water for about 10 hours.
