We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Coimbra and Aveiro. Our guide, Joao was very knowledgeable and helpful! He had a lot of great information to share! We took several tours during our visit to Portugal and this was by far the best! We highly recommend this activity! Joao was an outstanding guide!

This was an interesting experience made fun by the excellent guide. It was a revelation to see the storehouse with hundreds of barrels and vats of port just aging. The tasting afterwards was also great with generous servings of different ports and delicious chocolates. Well worth doing.

Highly recommended !!!!! Lucas our tour guide was fabulous, very kind and friendly. He made us feel like we are friends for many years. During the tour we learned a lot of things about the history of Porto and many hidden tips as well. This was the best 3 hours we spent in Porto.

Very enjoyable cellar tour. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable both about the history of the cellar itself and the wines. For the 10 euro price of this tour you get to try three port wines which was a good amount.

Knowledgeable, wonderful history, lovely guide. Made the visit the best! Well planned agenda and tour.
