PipaDouro Vintage Wine Travel
Rua Marginal, Cais 2, 5085-037, Pinhão - Porto and Douro
Pipadouro has an innovative VINTAGE WINE TRAVEL concept, a Luxury River Tourism with a quality service in boats that stand by their charm of the 50s and 60s. The company started in 2007 and its mission is "Quality and Excellence".
The Pipadouro project is based on the Douro River - Douro Valley, from the Foz of Porto to Barca d'Alva, bordering Spain.
With the construction of dams, we can say that the river was definitely tamed, creating reservoirs of still waters. It is the only Portuguese river with a locking system that allows the navigability along almost 200 kilometres.
Pipadouro offers private programs where the boats are for exclusive use, based on a tailor made concept, creating unique trips to the taste and needs of each client. It also offers daily programs with pre-set routes and schedules.
Pipadouro has two wooden vessels, named internationally Vintage Classic Boats that stand out for their antiquity, beauty and charm of the 50s and 60s. Both boats are equipped with all the necessary facilities in order to provide a smooth, safe and memorable trip.
The crew of each vessel is responsible for the maximum safety of all passengers and also responsible for providing a highly qualified service in order to exceed the expectations of every client, always meeting their demands on a proper and professional way.
After 20 years, she was purchased and restored by a gas company, was reconverted to transport clients and directors of that company. After another 20 years, and by virtue of fate, Pipadouro II was restored again.
