A Douro Valley Wine Tour & River Cruise from Porto

Porto is famous for its wine.  As well as the Port wine, the Douro Valley region just outside Porto produces some fabulous wines and a Douro Valley wine tour makes a wonderful day trip from Porto.  I contacted Cooltour Oporto about one of their Porto wine tours which included transport to the Douro Valley, wine tasting and a Douro River Cruise from Pinhão, and was thrilled when they offered me a place.
