Great self guided tour. Very informative. Our children (young/pre-teen) both enjoyed it too. Well worth the time. Also worth noting, the restaurant was phenomenal. The Port wine pairings made it that much better.

We really enjoyed our tour. The exhibits are professionally put together, giving you enough information to improve your understanding of all things port, while not burdening you with too much detail. You can take the tour entirely at your own pace. It wasn't crowded, with...More
