“Definitely worth visiting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Off the main road (consequently, not crowded), the oldest of the wine caves of Porto is a very place to visit. For just 5€ you get a tour of the cellars with a very competent guide (and speaking very good English, too) and get to taste 3 kinds of port wine. Very enjoyable!

“Nice tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We enjoyed the tour and tastings before and after. The tour is pretty short but guide Felipa tells all there is to know about making port wine. Very interesting (and cheap; only 3 euros for the tour and 3 port wines to taste).

“Excellent..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

A very interesting tour indeed, with a friendly, knowledgeable guide who went at just the right speed (i.e. not too fast) and gave just the right amount of information. The tasting at the end was fun too.

It can be a bit difficult to find, so it might be wise to set off a few minutes early.

“Love the tasting room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We were here in December, and it was decorated for Christmas, which was cool. The tour was nice, and we really enjoyed the ports we tasted at the end.
