Threaded together by charming old wooden trams and Beaux Arts buildings blanketed in azulejos, Portugal's second-largest city of Porto is currently experiencing a renaissance. Beyond the medieval walls, you'll now find swanky bistros, hip cocktail bars and a range of haute couture clothing shops just waiting to be discovered. Our experiences can take you to a living museum in a private estate surrounded by camellias, a sumptuous dinner in an art collector's home, a personalized tasting of Portuguese wine, a farm-to-table lunch at the estate of a viscountess, a hands-on pottery class to make Portugal's iconic azulejos, a Port wine tasting with a Knight of the Port Wine Brotherhood, and so much more! Catavino will help you find unique experiences that are tailored to your specific needs!  

Inspiration for your next trip:

  • Enjoy a hands-on cooking class with a Michelin-star chef
  • Experience Porto with a local architect and historian
  • Taste through Porto’s renovated market, Mercado Bolhao
  • Visit the lush green wine region of Vinho Verde
  • Tour the vine-covered terraces of the Douro Valley


Do not hesitate to book with Catavino. We spent a week in Portugal, both in Porto and in the Douro Valley, and every single moment was thoughtfully coordinated with a myriad of delightful, high-quality and gorgeous details. Ryan, our guide, was so informative, fun, and insightful. You could tell that each destination and relationship was built on mutual respect and love for the country we had the privilege of calling what felt like home for a week. I cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you Catavino for a marvelous time filled with laughs, learning and love for a beautiful country!
