We walked here from the other side of Porto and it was worth the walk. We only did the tastings and they were very very delicious. We love Port and the Taylors port did not disappoint.

One of the best port wine houses on the south side of the river Douro in Vila Nova de Gaia. Worth a visit try the restaurant. Great view.

We arrived at Taylor's in the late afternoon and decided to sit in the gorgeous garden in bright sunshine and taste our way through their port. We drink Taylor's at home so this was a must visit for us and a real treat. The tables around us had snacks and tapas. They looked very good but we just came from... More

The visit is very interesting, but expensive! Beautiful views from the restaurant and the hotel (strongly recommend the hotel, if you can not stay there, go at least for a coffee!).

The winery port tour is really comprehensive. Nice tasting in the end and a fairly priced shop at the end. The only downsides are that the winery is quite far from public transportation and that the tour can be overly thorough (although you can just skip stations that are not of interest to you).

Before visiting, we checked opening hours on Taylor's website. This said they were closing at 6.00pm for a private function. We arrived at 5.30 and were begrudgingly allowed in for a tasting. This was very rushed, staff had already started clearing away. Then as our barmaid was serving us and talking through the ports, her colleague appeared, reached over her,... More

We went to Taylor's because my friend recommended me this place. It was great trip, I liked it that we can explore by ourself with guide in headphones. Wine tasting was incredible, we need to grab one of the bottle with us! I think 12€ for visiting and tasting is very good price!

Very interesting guided tour that covers every aspect of port production. You get your own headset so you can proceed at your own pace plus there is lots of additional information from the displays. Have always found the different types of port quite confusing but now have a much clearer understanding. As well as the regular port included in the... More

At Taylor's you do a self guided tour which makes sense economically for the company but itsn't as intimate as if one has a guide. Nevertheless, the places to explore and the history to read about are all interesting. The best part of the "tour" was tasting 3 different ports - all of them of fine quality.
