Porto Calem reviews
Didn't do the tour, but did their 3 port tasting just right of the main entrance. There's a small stand with lots of tables to the right of the main entrance and asked about their tastings. Servers... more »
We wanted to do the cave tour and port tasting but there were no times available so we sat outside and just did the tasting on it’s own. Fab tasting, well explained and I got to do chocolate pairing..... more »
As others have said the English tour groups can be big, but it’s a very popular spot and a famous port house we expected that. Despite the size the tour is professionally done, very knowledgeable guide and a range of tasting options at the end. I took the two port taste and my husband took the three, meaning we ultimately tried five different ports. Recommend that option if you want to try more!
Great experience. A must do for any visit to Porto, full of culture, history, science and the wine tasted great too! It was made even better by our English speaking tour guide who was excellent, informative and has a landmark birthday coming up soon. Have a great birthday!!
