Sampling the Douro Valley

Our fantastic guides were Marco and Sandra, who were very friendly, informative and crammed so much into the day. The drive into the Douro Valley was stunning - such beautiful scenery. The wine tasting and tour of Fernando Coelho's vineyard was memorable. We then had a superb gourmet lunch at Restaurante Doc accompanied by paired wines - this is a must whenever you are close by. Finishing the day with a visit to another vineyard and boat trip (and yes another glass of Port) our return journey to Porto (along with the four Australian tourists who were great company) was a good deal quieter that the outward drive in the morning - it could have been the wine but I would like to think it was contemplation of a truly wonderful day which was worth every penny.
