They don't offer few options to taste, it was only 2 small glasses. Whole thing is more like a sales process. We couldn't see the entire warehouse because they had some filming going on. They explained the wine making process and different types of wine they have during the presentation. Overall it was an interesting experience. Don't go there with... More

For €6 you can have a 30 minute tour of the port house where you learn about the port making process, which includes seeing the vats and barrels in which the port is aged. Port isn't actually made here so you are told about the theory behind the making of port and you get to visit the wine cellar where... More

We managed to catch the wine tour here and found it interesting and cheap. The visit to the museum and explanation of the vineyards, fermentation, transportation and storage in the large and small barrels was very interesting. More information about the barrels and effects on different wines also interesting. Then a final discussion about the bottled wines before tasting white... More

We went there in the evening at 6 when they have a tour with fado show. The ticket was 17€ per person. You start with a wine cellar tour. The guide introduces the wine of the company and also gives information about which wine should be drunk with which kind of food etc. When the introduction ends, you pass to... More

Having taken a trip to the Douro Valley the day before, I came away from this visit felling I knew more than the guide. Extremely poor tour, however the tasting was good. I wish I had purchased more here as the Airport Duty Free was a rip off. Good selection of their produce and friendly staff serving and selling.

Interesting visit, in which you learn a lot about port wine. However the reception could show a little more sympathy (although I am referring to the lady who received me). On the other hand, the visiting time is shorter than I expected.

Yes ok it's on the tourist trail . However the guide was very informative. I really had no idea how much work went into producing those bottle's! ! The tasting afterwards is enjoyable but go easy! You can buy the products cheaper elsewhere but that goes for most things.

Told to try here by a port supplier in the UK. The tour is both informative and good value. Cost 8 euro and included the usual port. I enjoyed but would choose Grahams and Sandemans over Calem for the tour.
