Douro Valley Wine bicycle Tour
A demarcated and classified wine region
The Douro valley is one of the ultimate wonders of nature. It is the culmination of the effort and energy of men and women, who through their labour gave shape to an already astonishing landscape. Travelling Douro is enjoying its convents and churches, meeting its rustic crafts, tasting the genuine cuisine and witnessing the Portuguese folklore traditions.
Port Wine is undoubtedly the most famous product of this region. Douro comes to life during the summer and beginning of Autumn, with the several holidays and wine celebrations that happen at this time of the year. The harvest of the grapes is most likely the biggest and liveliest event of this region.

Wagabonne, Beijing, China,
Sergio arranged a really great 5 day (6 nights) tour for me with breathtaking views of Douro valley, interesting and challenging off roads, quite and tranquil back countries, and comfortable and quaint accommodations to relax in at the end of each day. Sergio took great care of us (there were another couple whose tour dates were the same as mine), checked from time to time to see how we are doing, any questions or problems we might have, and shared with us much information on the local culture. His other staff are also great, friendly and knowledgeable about their city. Sergio arranged for a free walking tour of Porto as part of the package, and when we were at Pinhao he took us to a vineyard for port wine tasting. We were equipped with GPS with turn by turn instructions, no way to get lost. Douro valley is a beautiful and serene place to cycle, sometimes you feel like you have the whole place just to yourself. The villages and towns along the way are not touristy at all, very much maintained its local way of life. A great way to see beautiful nature and way of life in the wine country of Portugal. Really recommend a visit to the archeological site of Foz Coa to see the rock art our ancestor left us over 20,000 years ago and hear about the fascinating history of how it was discovered and the fight to preserve an important part of human heritage. Miss the nature, the sun and tranquility of Douro wine valley. Fold'n and Visit is the company to go with when you want to book tours in Porto or the countryside around it. Really recommend it for their service, care, attention to details and hospitality.
Katherine, Melbourne, Australia,
My family recently did a 7 day bike tour through the Duoro Valley with Sergio (driving the van) and Henrique (our guide). We had the most fabulous week! The route chosen by Sergio was perfect and the scenery was different every day. We stayed at beautiful Quinta's each night where we either ate dinner with the family (which was very traditional) or went out to great local restaurants. We also got to have unique experiences with the families (port tasting, olive oil visits, palaeontology visits etc). Henrique was the best guide we could have wanted. He was very friendly and enthusiastic and provided us with a wealth of information about every city, church, region, etc. Both Sergio and Henrique were extremely professional and went above and beyond to make our week the best it could be! We wouldn't have changed one thing! Thanks Sergio and Henrique!!
