An interesting tour with an evangelical guide who had real passion about the brand. Worth doing the tour for the 3 glasses of Port and the great garden in which to enjoy it with views over the city. Don't buy Port in the shop as you can get the same stuff much cheaper in the city and the service at... More

Awe-inspiring views from a lovely garden and terrace overlooking Porto. After an informative 20 minute tour of the Quinta, you are free to take your time tasting three different styles of ports in a beautiful setting. Well worth getting away from the crowds on the quayside. A very restful end to a busy day of sightseeing.

When we first arrived the man at the register was busy so was quiet rude to us. We paid €5 each for the tour. But our visit only got better from there. The women served us our welcome glass of white port. We then sat on the balcony overlooking the river, such an amazing view. We then took the 30... More

I dislike Port immensely. My Husband absolutely adores it. In the scheme of compromise, I agreed to do this tour and was so glad I did. The guide was very informative and quite funny. The tour is brilliant. I even found port that I liked! This isn't something I would've done on my own. If anyone else is dithering then... More

If you have time to visit Taylor's you must go on the tour of the cellars. Our guide Marta was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about Port. The tour also includes tasting 3 different Ports. For €5 you won't be disappointed!

Little bit of a walk up a narrow cobbled street but well worth the effort. so many varieties of port set high above the river with wonderful views of porto. lovely gardens and friendly staff that will give you a great welcome. so much history with tours running every hour in various languages. Cost is for what you taste and... More
