  • Really interesting tour and Port tasting. The audio guide was detailed. The two port wines included in the tour price are excellent. Definitely need around two hours for the visit. Staff are super friendly and helpful - the walk up the hill from the river is pretty steep but there are great views once you arrive. A really enjoyable time.
  • They serve audio-guiding devices that allows me to look around inside by myself. You can find what kinds of languages are provided on the website. After the winery tour, 2 glasses of port wine are served. Also, you can order some side menu for drinks or buy some bottles of wine there. Frankly speaking, I'm not an expert in terms of wine at all. So, I learned a lot about wine and making procedures during the tour. The amount and depth of information provided via devices and visible displays are considerable! I also liked the way to the winery (actually on the hill) and the peaceful time looking around. That's why I recommend this tour! It worth the time and money I spent!
