  • One of the worst wine tours I've had, that explains little of the wine making process complemented with a tasting in the end that was nothing special.

  • We had a lovely experience! Nuno was a great tour guide, really funny and knows a lot! He made the tour a bit interactive which was also a lot of fun, he keeps things interesting all throughout the tour. The location was beautiful and the tasting was great. I would recommend to visit!
  • Easy to visit, included in (some?) Yellow bus tour tickets and so an obvious choice for most tourists in Porto. Not my favourite wine cellar in gaia but honestly it's right by the bridge so you will almost certainly pass by and may as well go in. Professional and nicely done tour with a rather average "tasting" at the end. The wines you get depend on the ticket you buy, and the tasting itself is more like sit here drink this then go to our shop. That said the shop seemed reasonably priced so if you like the port you can get so.e there and then.
