Our program for 2012
September 2012 Friday 31st August to 3rd September: Budget Tour to Douro Valley including picturesque train journey to the heart of the Douro Valley. 3 nights £590.00 per person based on two people sharing. It does not include travel to/from Portugal but does include all travel within Portugal, all hotels, meals and organised visits and trips – wineries, boat trips and river cruises. Optional extra night hotel on Thursday 30th August, inc. dinner for additional £50 per person.
September 2012 Monday 7th September to 14th September: Luxury Douro Valley Tour, staying at splendid 5 star Yeatman Hotel on first night with dinner on the river. Inclusive of the Yeatman Hotel, rooms at the Quinta da Pacheca and the Quinta San Antonio are currently held unconfirmed pending firm bookings. Due to the wine harvest, September is an extremely busy period in the Douro Valley – so unpaid reserves for rooms held without a deposit, are now very limited and therefore early booking is essential. So if we have too many late deciders we may need to change our chosen hotels. The Cost of the tour is £1690.00 per person based on two people sharing. It does not include travel to/from Portugal but does include all travel within Portugal, all hotels, meals and organised visits and trips – wineries, boat trips and river cruises.
