Ryan and his team of angels of Catavino created an absolute exceptional itinerary for our group of 10 from Minnesota. From our first winery visit to grape stomping to our splendid view from our hotel in the Douro Valley, the Catavino team left no details behind. We were treated like esteemed guests everywhere we went and even treated like family is more like it! I'm going through withdrawal and plan to go back with the whole family in the near future. One of our guests summed it up like this during one of our lunches, "Patti, I feel like I've died and gone to heaven. Just when I think I had the best day ever, the next day is even better!" I highly recommend anyone, whether it's the two of you or a group, to look no further than Ryan and Catavino who will customize and personalize an itinerary that will surprise and delight you beyond your wildest dreams.

They show you a true picture of what goes on, busting myths about the wine and port industry to show you the real side of Douro. Their level of knowledge is incredible, and we had access to wine tasting, grape stomping and meet the faces behind the wine industry. I can't even begin to describe the amazing lunch at the farm, overlooking the most spectacular views that only the Douro provides - breath taking!! It is guaranteed to be filled with passion and love, leaving you with a yearning to come back time and time again. Can't recommend this enough. read lessAnna Gunn9/19/2017Highly recommend the Catavino tour The History of Portugal in 5 Glasses, exploring streets of Porto and learning hidden facts and stories about daily portuguese... read moreHighly recommend the Catavino tour The History of Portugal in 5 Glasses, exploring streets of Porto and learning hidden facts and stories about daily portuguese pleasures, like drinking tea, coffee, beer and wine.

We spent a week in Portugal, both in Porto and in the Duoro Valley, and every single moment was thoughtfully coordinated with a myriad of delightful, high-quality and gorgeous details. Each vineyard was one driven by passion for the people, land and true expression of the beautiful land, and each food destination represented the pride and excellence of the Portuguese people. Ryan, our guide and CEO of Catavino, 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 to Ryan and Catavino for a marvellous time filled with laughs, learning and love for a beautiful country! read lessCorinne Murray9/20/2022My wife, son, daughter-in-law and I just returned from a memorable, two-week adventure in Spain and Portugal which was arranged by the wonderful team at... read moreMy wife, son, daughter-in-law and I just returned from a memorable, two-week adventure in Spain and Portugal which was arranged by the wonderful team at Catavino. There aren’t sufficient superlatives to describe these extraordinary individuals who made this trip so very special.Our primary contact, Janelle Norman, guided us with great creativity, attention to detail and sensitivity in addressing our focus on food, wine and culture. Her choices of extremely professional drivers, knowledgeable and engaging guides and delightful restaurants were outstanding. Her suggested day in the Douro Valley with Ryan Opaz was educational and great fun. Ryan was a superb and entertaining host who guided us through the tasting of aged port from even older barrels in a private quinta. Lunch at a small family restaurant and a cruise on the beautiful Douro River were wonderful.In Porto, one of our many highlights was a walking tour of this magical city with the vibrant and ever engaging Gabriella Opaz. Not to be missed! Her personality is infectious and seeing Porto through her eyes will guarantee your return.I must also mention that throughout our two weeks of travel, Janelle was never far away, during the day and well into the night, checking on our experiences and making modest adjustments in our plans where appropriate. Our travels were flawless.In summary, our family shared numerous experiences we’ll remember forever and we met many wonderful people along the way. However, it was the Catavino team that made it all possible and gave us a truly memorable journey. We’ll be back very soon! read lessGlenn Kalnasy6/19/2018
