It's a climb up the hill to Taylor's but the view from the terrace is well worth it. The tour is good and explains the origins of Taylor's wines with a tasting of three ports - a dry white at the start and then a ruby and 10-year old tawny at the end of the tour. It is well worth... More

Jacinta and I took the Taylor tour as a part of a larger walking tour booked through Oporto and Douro Experiences (reviewed elsewhere), so our admissions/tasting fees were paid. That said, the fees here are quite low given the quality of the tour and the wines you are able to sample. This tour, led by a young woman who spoke... More

Great overview of port wine making process and the differences in port wine styles. Not too long a tour and tastings were a good mix.

We didn't make it for the tour of Taylors and just opted to sample some of the ports while there. This was a good thing that they offer tastings but the room was open with few seats even for the off-season. We managed to get a spot from one lady who was leaving. We sampled a few of the wines...

You have to climb a little in the steep streets of Vila Nova da Gaia , but then the reward ! What a place to have lunch after or before a nice sightseeing in the portwine cellar. A well educated guide showed us around and Thon some tasting on the terrace overlooking the river and the old part of the... More

We arrived at Taylors in the pouring rain just in time for their last tour of the day (5pm). The tour costs 5 euros and includes tasting three ports and a tour of the cellars. Nicely done and well run.

Not to be missed when visiting Oporto. Brilliant, informative tour of the port wine-making facility with well experienced guide. Very reasonable price of €5 per person for the tour that culminated in a 3 sample port wine tasting included. Thank you.

Taylors, like all the other porto wine cellars, gives you a tour around the cellars for 5 euro. And you get a tasting as well. What makes taylors special is: - It is the most beautifull location of all, on top of the hill. - They have a spacious garden where you can sit and enjoy your port - The... More

Taylors cellar are at the top of the hill, so several stops to admire the views! Worth it once you are there. Staff very informative and helpful, learnt a lot about the 3 different Ports tasted and what to eat with them. Cost 5 or 8 euros per person ? and book the relevant tour in your language. Bear it...

It is far to easy to only visit the cellars lower down the hill but a trip / trek up to the Taylor's cellar is well worth it. The walk is relatively steep, but then again I was wearing a suit and so perhaps not in the most practical shoes, but ones you arrive you are welcomes into the tourist... More
