Its a good wine and has a good tour to theyr seller. I only think that the tour should be wider and not so futuristic with videos and new pictures. Should be more oldfashion line the Port Wine

Very interesting tour trough the Port cellars of Sandeman! If you are in Porto you shouldn't miss this out. Price is very good and you will get 2 very tasty Port wines at the end of the tour!

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

The place is lovely and there where a lot of people already seated so we give it a try . Worst waiters ever. Food was a long time coming, and not good at all. Worst wine we had in our 3 day stay in Porto. I would not recommend.

This was described as the "Budweiser" of port tours to me, making it a great first place to visit for non-port aficionados. Well organized, interesting, and tasty pours at the end. They take you through the operational vaults where port ages and show an informational video on grape growing at the end, covering the differences in port wines and wine-making... More

Myself and my partner visited the Sandeman port house and had a tour as part of the 'Three Caves' package. It was 10 euros, and also included Offley and Ferreira tours. The Sandeman tour was very informative and our guide was funny, positive and knowledgeable throughout. Seeing the men at work in the port house was also very interesting. The... More

For €5 you can't go wrong. This price is the same across all the other port wine tours. Sandeman port wine tour is around 30 minutes long and includes a tour guide providing history and port wine making information plus a 5 minute film on Sandeman Port wine and the opportunity to taste two types of port wine. All in... More

Looked like the place to have a sit down for a drink and something to eat lots of tables and many people seated already. Worst waiter ever. He came to the table asking for order without having brought is food or drinks menu, had to retrieve menu one for the table. Drinks came in different stages. Food was a long... More
