The band was very good, the singer was just great and it lasted 15 songs i think, so it’s a good deal. It has a touristic feeling on it, but it was overall a good experience. I guess they could use the chance to sell...More

I was not impressed with this tour, tasting, and fado show. The "tour" was not particularly informative, you can learn more by reading the port wine description in a popular guidebook or on the internet. About all you see on this tour are some big...More

First the museum is not a museum but a walk within the barrel of Porto. You will get 30 minutes of marketing and advertising for what you can later buy in their shop. The real museum and content was not here. Second the wine tasting...More

I went on a couple of winery tours in Porto and liked this one the best. They are set up for visitors, for sure. I really enjoyed the one that came with the Fado—the musicians were very talented, and the wine tasting was excellent. An...More

We went to another port house originally, but due to the bad service there thought we would try Calem instead. Best decision we made! Super friendly service. Our tour guide was very entertaining even though he was losing his voice. After the tour, we sat...More

Tour was ok, large group, larger than we had at other caves. Information less than others too. 2 port tastings on dirty tables. No napkins so if your port glass had a drip, it made the table dirtier and wet. I am guessing my glass...More

Reading some of the previous reviews, I think we were fortunate to visit on a night when there were fewer people there. We had no more than 50 for our tour (which was split into smaller tours) and the Fado. Both guitarists and the male...More
