The ‘tour’ consisted of a few very quickly spoken facts & a walk through a boarded off area with some artefacts & then their bottle store. Not really a port cellar tour, more of a sales effort. That said, 4 port tastings each for 5...More

It was a great visit. Very inexpensive. The host has a good knowledge and the tour was very informative. The port tasting was done at the end and fully refunded if you would buy a bottle of Porto. Fun activity for very little money! Family...More
