My brother and I were lucky as we arrived 10 minutes before a tour iin English was due to start. It cost €5 for approximately 35 minutes. There is a little 'museum' at the entrance hall where you are free to browse throught the advertisements of Sandeman over the past hundred years. Inside, the tour guide explained about the three...

The tour of Sandeman Port House is worth every cent. The guide will take you thru the port cellars and give a history of George Sandemans port wine. The tour ends with tastings. One can purchase a variety of port and wines after the tastings.

Interesting tour in the sandeman caves. It was rather expensive (6 €/pp), and the explanation was limited, but when you go to porto, you have to visit one of the caves, just for teh smell of teh wooden barrels.

My husband and I visited a few port wineries during our stay in Porto, and this one was our favorite. It was large, with a great tour and wonderful port wines. What I liked best was the ability to sit outside near the river and sip our port. We were able to order some appetizers and relax, watching those walking... More

This is one of the best Porto Cellars in the World. The other one is Quinta do Seixo in Valença do Douro

We arrived in the queue around 10.30 in the morning as planned to go into the countryside around Porto and back to Coimbre that day but found after the tourist buses went through we had been beaten by two people in the queue who got the last tour before Lunch and it was in Spanish. Come back at 3 pm... More

If you go to Porto, they say, you have to do a tour of the cellars, so we did. Basically a man dressed in a cape shows you loads and loads of port barrels, then shows you a video of what he has just told you, then gives you two small glasses of port to sample. 45 mins, 9E. hardly... More
