We very much enjoyed our port tasting at the Sandemans cellar. Well worth the money, informative, interesting and the port was delicious with 3 different ones offered. The guide was great and loved...

I was positively surprised by this. The tour was interesting and while a little cheesy with the don outfit it was entertaining and the guide was open to any questions related to port. The tasting was good too - great to taste a few options side by side. Wish the chocolate tasting tour wasn't as expensive, though - would've loved to try that but not at €60.
The tour was good and a good price. I would buy online before. People tried to walk in and weren’t able to get in because the tour was full. The tour is a good length only about an hour and then the tasting after is pretty quick. Also if you take the time in the morning but the later one just know you will be hurried out because the places closes for lunch. So when we went we didn’t have a long time only like 20 min. You get three tastings at the end and it’s good then you can go through the store. I probably wouldn’t return only because there are so many to see but it was good.
