Cálem is a small but established port company, the first one to tour crossing the bridge from Porto. One can only speculate that this is why they charge 6€ for a very short and not very intimate tour and let you taste 2 port wines. This is more of a "tour factory" than an informative experience.

The place you tour is small, way too many people, I had to wait until everyone left to see what the guide was talking about. The talk was a little boring. It should have been shorten. The wine tasting part was fine.

I was walking around the river bank Porto Calem is one of the wine cellars along the river bank. Need a fee to go in for wine tasting and tour.
