€4 for a tour of the winery and a tasting of three different ports - sounds too good to be true, but it's not! Incredibly good value for a visit to just one of Porto's many port wine establishments. This was the only one we visited as our trip was quite short, but we were very happy with the experience.... More

We visited 3 Port houses while in Porto. This one was my favorite because the tour guide seemed a little bit more knowledgeable about Port vs. the other two. The cellars, casks and storage rooms start to look the same after a few tours, but what I enjoyed at each of our stops was learning about the brands and history... More

We went there with our group to have an experience about the way of porto wine production. After the conducted tour in the cellar we had the opportunity to taste three kinds of porto wine.

My husband and I visited the Offley cellars and took the €4 tour, which included 3 port samplings at the end of the tour. I thought the tour was quite good. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. I learned a great deal about Port wine and the Duoro Region on this tour (which last maybe 30-40 minutes). The... More

This is the best valued tour I have ever been on in the world. We went on the reserva tour which cost €4 p. p. The tour was very informative if you are at all interested in port. The tour concluded with a tasting of 3 good sized ports including a reserva. To my knowledge there is no where in... More

Went for a tasting were you buy the port which you would like to taste by the glass (as seems to be the case in Porto). Price per glass starts around 3 euros. Tasting room staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the product and the process.

We were lucky to get a small tour group (6 people). The tour lasted 30 minutes. It was very informative regarding the different ports made, the ageing process and drinking times. The history of this port house is very interesting unlike your high street brands. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We went for the baton forrester tasting which comprised... More

We went here with three couples. The tour was one of the better ones in Porto. It wasn't all about advertising their wine, but more informative on the differences between port wine and regular wine. I highly recommend it! It's about 8€ each and we got two port wines to sample and chocolates.

we had a river tour and a "free" degustation after in the Offley. Good tour, but when it came to degustation the guy just left to those who booked an on-site degustation. We were left with a glass of a really average Port. Stupid, really stupid. Offley port is ok but definitely not sensational, those who came there would probably... More
