Old Journey to Tua

2 - 6 Persons

Half Day Experience

At 2:00 p.m. our specialized guide will pick you up where you are accommodated, taking you for a sightseeing tour on a luxurious vehicle with Wi-fi, fresh water and refreshing towels, in which you will journey through the hidden sensations of the Douro Valley, whether the panoramic roads floating in the sinuous landscape of this human heritage territory, or one of its emblematic viewpoints, namely: São Salvador do Mundo, Casal de Loivos or São Leonardo de Galafura. In any of these you will feel what is beyond the obvious! An Essence, and ancient voice, echoes these spaces and in its silence we better realize the transcendency of the place and the Douro landscape. Once beyond this threshold of sentiment, we dive in its millenary history, legends and tradition.

The visit continues after passing by the Peso da Régua train station, for a small but singular train ride, that draws the frontier between river and vineyard, in which each scenery is unique and unrepeatable, and before our eyes, an entire and grandiose winegrowing set of estates river and mountains, as well as the colors and the mountains awesomeness.

Arrived at the Tua station, dated 1883, a 4×4 vehicle awaits to take us in a thrilling ride, where we will get to know the hidden corners, treasures that only the locals, like treasure guardians, know and invite you to discover. In this tour you will visit a small producer´s estate, to find out more about its reality, production model and where the wines made here will be tasted. After the tasting, we venture into the vineyard, to enjoy a traditional picnic, surrounded by impressive views of the recent natural park.

And slowly, by entering this synchrony with the places and memories, the land is unveiling its mysteries and nothing else is there to do but to be cradled in that search of the roots, anchored in that distant time and space of the territories of the Tua Natural Park.

If the weather favors... The tour finally ended, a luxurious vehicle will take you back to your hotel.
