We only visited one port lodge and based our choice on other reviews, as we only had a short time in Porto, we chose Croft. Our taxi dropped us outside...it is up a steep street with views over the river, and has a nice outside seating area. The cellar was lovely...lots of history. There were choices of tours and we...

My fiancée and I took the classic tour of the Croft wine lodges. This cost 5 euors per person and included three different ports. The tour guide was very informative and clearly enjoyed his job a great deal. There are other options available including a chocolate and port tasting (7 euros each) and a port and cocktail tasting (10 euros).... More

We didn't take the tour, only did a tasting, but the staff was wonderful! The walk to the tasting room was beautiful, and the port itself was fantastic. I'd never had pink port before (and I'm a port drinker from way back), so that was the first exciting new experience at Croft. The late-bottled vintage we tried was just phenomenal,... More

We have been in several caves during our stay in porto, croft's one were definitely the loviest and most typical. For 5€ we had a guided tour of 30min and a degustation of 3 ports: one pink, one ruby and one tawny all really good. Staff is nice and tour can be in different languages depending visitors. A must to... More

They were friendly, lively, funny, and interesting. The place is dripping with history and atmosphere, but there was no hint of pretension. Our tour guide was fun, knowledgable, and easy going. And the wine is some of the best in Porto.

A beautiful venue, one of the oldest we were told and hidden away from the main road. Therefore not too much tourist traffic. The tasing of 3 good serves of port wine did cost just 5 Euro per person and included a tour of about 30 mins. Great value. After the tour we had more tasings of their Reserves and... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Croft cellar. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were lucky that there were only 4 people total in our tour group - it was great to have such a personalised experience with a generous tasting!

this is a treasure. We had been to one of the larger wine lodges and wanted to bring back a good bottle of port, that we can not buy in the states. This wine lodge is located off the beaten path. However, it is a really nice walk up the hill to facility. We missed the tour in English and... More

We went to Croft because it's location is off the main road and it was worth the climb! For only €5,- we got a 45 minute long tour trough the port house and tasted 4 different port wines. After the tour, we sat on the terrace and ordered the port tasting which was really good and cheap. Loved this place!

Very nice visit on this port wine cellar tour + tasting. Somewhat "homemade" feeling, compared to Ferreira and Graham's
