An eye opener and drink, very educational it makes you think about your next glass of wine. I enjoyed it very much. Also the tasters were excellent indeed. Worth a visit.

A very interesting visit to museum, followed by a guided tour of cellars. Quirky projection of information on the barrels. The tasting took place in the Fado which was lovely.

The band was very good, the singer was just great and it lasted 15 songs i think, so it’s a good deal. It has a touristic feeling on it, but it was overall a good experience. I guess they could use the chance to sell...More

I was not impressed with this tour, tasting, and fado show. The "tour" was not particularly informative, you can learn more by reading the port wine description in a popular guidebook or on the internet. About all you see on this tour are some big...More

First the museum is not a museum but a walk within the barrel of Porto. You will get 30 minutes of marketing and advertising for what you can later buy in their shop. The real museum and content was not here. Second the wine tasting...More
