Doesn't matter whether you know wine or port or not, the tour in English is very educational. Tour guide presented the info very well - simple and clear with a sense of humor. The tour duration is just about right and would be able to give you an overview of what port is all about. Location of this cellar is... More

A conventional wine tour with basic guidance and information on the process production and assortment of Port wine.If you've been to other wine tours you may find this just an average tour. The two wines we tasted at the end of the tour was undoubtedly delicious and would earn the stars.

If you enjoy winery or brewery tours, the tour of Calem Winery is for you! In addition to a knowledgeable tour guide who will answer all of your questions, your fee covers tastings (be prepared- Port wine is very strong) and a beautiful Fado performance. Que lindo! Absolutely lovely! This is a cultural experience you do not want to miss.

Knowing nothing about the production of Port our group of, not so young, adults had a most enjoyable and informative time at Calem Port. Our guide was very enthusiastic about his product and extremely knowledgeable. He didn't rush us and we were able to ask questions A very nice touch was a group photo in the cellar which we were...

We went on a rainy day and the host was very professional and kind I do not remember his name could be Manuel or Miguel but anyway very knowledgeable and committed to the job. Very good Porto choice

It is worth 30 mins of your day to go and do the tour. Has a tourist trap feel to it, but that's why your visiting right? Nice walk around some casks and a 2 glass tasting at the end. Met some fun people during the tour which was a plus. Sign up early as the last English tour is... More

The tour and tasting was very good. We visit Napa, CA often but have never learned about Port wine. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and generous with the tastings.

It was worth the visit when me, my wife, my brother and my sister in law went for a visit at Calém Port wine. Their house is clean, and the infrastructure is ok but now luxurious as other caves in the region. The same goes to their port wine, good but not the best in the region yet worth a... More

The cellar is rather small but nice and our tour was complimented by a talented live music performance (18:30 show). However, the tour itself was rushed (less than 15 min long) and it felt rather disingenuous and rather shallow. While the music performance made it memorable for us, 17.50 EUR is rather expensive for two tastings of Porto and a... More
