The trip was well organised, although I booked 2 tickets and because the minivan was full we weren’t able to sit together. I know that for some people is not a big deal but if you spent almost 5 hours in a car we would prefer to sit together, especially it was my partner’s birthday. The tour guide was excellent, very funny and knowledgeable. Also went beyond my expectations when he asked us for a lunch preference and I don’t like meat or salmon, he made sure that the restaurant prepare something different for me and it was delicious!
Fado is an important part of the collective Portuguese soul, born in the taverns of the 19th century and an iconic symbol of the Portuguese culture. This 75-minute program includes a visit to the Cálem wine cellars to learn about ancestral traditions. The visit is followed by a tasting of two port Wines (white and special reserve), which are served to you while you enjoy a Fado performance. The Fado performance features both male and female voices accompanied by traditional Portuguese guitar and classic guitar. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear to the music and experience the soul of the country.
A really great early evening experience. The tour of the lodge was informative and most interesting. This was followed by an excellent 50 minutes of fado music with two musicians and two singers. Whilst we listened to the music we drank two port wines, a white and a tawney. I can recommend this wholeheartedly.
Enjoy a traditional “6 Bridges Cruise” along the River Douro and follow in the footsteps of the old wine merchants that transported wine from the valley to the wine cellars. Board the boat at Ribeira Quay and sail for 50 minutes along the river. Admire the beautiful landscapes and buildings of Ribeira and Vila Nova de Gaia from the water. Known as "Rabelo Boats," in reference to the old boats that transported wine from the Douro Valley, the cruise is the perfect chance to learn more about the historic bridges that connect Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. Learn more about their construction and curiosities, and upon arrival at the last bridge, see the Foz do Douro where the river pours into the ocean.
It was really fun, the people were nice and we did not have to wakt long. There are 2 boats and one leaves every half hour. I would suggest taking one at 6 like we did, after the boatride we went for a hike to go up on one of the bridges and saw a beautiful sunset. We also had golden hour etc so we were really happy that we took the boat at 6. The people spoke excellent english! There is also a cable car ride by the boats. Wich is a really fun experience aswell!!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide Claudia was informative, interesting and amusing. She was always pointing out places or points of interest on our journey right to the end, making sure that we were Covid safe at all times. The hosts at the two wineries were also very informative and passionate about their product. The lunch provided was tasty and well presented with a beautiful view of the vineyards. The boat trip was a charming restful and relaxing interlude. We had a lovely day and would thoroughly recommend this tour to give you a wider appreciation of Porto and Portugal.

We will continue to our next stop where there will be a magnificent snack prepared for you with the best typical dishes of our north of the country.

Very nice guided tour! Our guide was very passionate about port wine, he could give us an answer to all of our questions. He was very professional about the information of the wine cellar.

I decided to do this because I was exhausted from all the walking. It was Ku first time and I felt very safe. Our guide was very attentive to make sure we all were together. He said facts along the way. This was a good way to get a sneak peak of places I would be interested in visiting.
The bike tour was very relaxing and you could see a lot. You could always drive along the river to get to the beach. Better wear headgear in hot weather. The surf session was great too. There was a good briefing and then we could try surfing for about 1 hour or with the help.
We had Andreia as guide. She was very helpful and the tour was a lot of fun. A good way to visit Porto
Excellent Tour to Porto. Thank you Andrea (our guide). Highly recommended!
