Central to the festivities is the tradition of exchanging playful swats with garlic flowers, known as "alho-porro," and the launching of illuminated paper balloons into the night sky. But perhaps the most iconic aspect of São João is the spirited street parties, where locals and visitors alike come together to dance, sing, and revel in the joyous atmosphere. Throughout the night, the air is filled with the sound of traditional folk music, the aroma of grilled sardines, and the infectious laughter of revelers. And as the clock strikes midnight, the sky erupts in a dazzling display of fireworks, marking the pinnacle of this extraordinary celebration.

Our company is created in August 2019, aiming at offering a unique way to feel the Douro by combining the tasting of great wine (enotourism) with a personalized service that displays the region in “a more intimate fashion”. To achieve that, the Porto-based company offers a wide variety of experiences supported in exclusivity and privacy, assuring that the calmness and beauty of the landscape is fully absorbed by its visitors. Our company presents a number of special itineraries for better enjoyment of the Douro Valley. This includes moments of gastronomical and enophile nature, as well as visits to places out of reach by traditional tourism. Such is only possible through its fleet of two vintage wooden boats of timeless charm: Mary and White Swan. These vessels were projected by a Portuguese shipwright whose design bears in mind the innate characteristics of the Douro River, guaranteeing safety, stability and perfect harmony with the region.
