It was a bit of a walk up the hill but well worth the effort, I arrived late in the day so it was too late to take a tour. Needless to say, there was still time to try out a number of their fabulous offerings. The staff were good, explained each tasting and it hinted of a professionally run... More

For a mere 5 euros each we enjoyed an informative 40 min tour of the port lodge and tasted three different ports at the end (a white port, a ruby and a 10 year old tawny). There is also the opportunity to pay to enjoy more port in the very well designed bar. Due to the location of the lodges... More

We took a taxi from our hotel in Porto to the Taylor Cellars (no relation to the US Taylor Wine). They are located just about at the hilltop, which means all the other estates are down-hill. We had some time before our English tour so we strolled up to luxury Yeatman Hotel. (It is independently owned by the Yeatman family,... More

We hopped off one of the open topped town tour buses at the first stop on the quay and at about mid-day, we climbed the steep cobbled hill past Offley's, which was closed for lunch! Beautiful views of the town from Taylor's premises, which are neat, stylish, with plenty of dark woods and the small gardens immaculately manicured. We joined... More

Tour and tasting of three (cheaper) ports for €5 was fantastic value when topped off with sipping the last two ports from the verandah, looking out over the river on a beautiful summer day. Wow!

Got recommended to visit Taylors - a little away from the beaten path and it was great. Tour included 3 ports to taste, you could sit up on the terrace and enjoy the sun and the view. They had a restaurant we didn't try, but sampled many of the ports. Really great afternoon up there!

Nice little back garden, nice surroundings and great view of the river. They offer 3 Port tastings for 5€ comparing with just 2 with the others.

Long, steep walk, but Porto is built on hills, so expected. The location is lovely, with a tranquil garden overlooking Gaia, the Douro and Porto. The tour is enjoyable but with only one port at the end, usually the Chip Dry White, which I personally dislike. We now just buy a port or two and sit in the garden -... More

How can you complain with 3 tastes and a tour for the princely sum of 5 euros. But if an uphill walk is a problem, take a cab as it was quite a climb from the Douro and the other more gently sited lodges. Not much to see besides a lot of barrels in the lodge- do enjoy the garden... More
