  • Amazing experience. I thought it would be very touristy but in the end I found it very cozy and far from generic. The guide was so into the subject and keen on explaining everything. Learned so much interesting stuff about wine, wine production and how it’s related to Porto and Portugal. I recommend it A LOT. Plus, the wine tasting was so pleasant and nice.
  • Great tour with an entertaining host (who no doubt is bored of the same jokes every time but tells them well nonetheless!). This tour goes a bit more into what the different ports are and how they are made. Very informative and well worth the money. Honestly was a bit surprised because I thought it’s locations would lend itself to being a tourist trap but it’s actually excellent.
