  • We did the English language tour for 17€ each with 3 port wine tastings. The tour is fun and informative, the guide was great and the displays are really well done. The tasting at the end, of course, was also super.
  • Great time, book your tour in advance they have many language options. Our was English the guide was friendly and patient with our daughter's questions. It is interactive and our 9 year old seemed to enjoy it. Went to the tasting room after, we were the only people in there so the host came over and chatted the whole time. He gave us some great recommendations for places to eat off the beaten path. It was some of the better port we had though we had the premium tasting.
