The tour was smooth and harmonious. As I had read some reviews about this tour before, I was forewarned. I took my headset, and before starting the tour my husband and I downloaded the application that was behind the boat's seats. The meeting place is in front of a house called Ramos Pinto, where there is a kiosk with a photo of the boat, where check-in takes place. The boat is right in front too, if you don't have it at the moment, it's because it will be doing the tour, and it will arrive right away. However, the tour is interesting, cool and safe!

Very good visit. No excess of speech: the essential has been said. The Porto brand is less well known in France, but it doesn't matter. The cellar is well placed after the Luis Bridge. Excellent impression; good choice of Get your guided equal to itself!

Nice tour in a nice port wine cellar. Our host was super friendly and explained a lot about the wine making.

13 € for a really informative hour and 2 ports is pretty nice and we had a lot of fun.

Very informative tour. Lovely environment and great tasting experience.
