  • Porto: Cálem Cellar Tour, Fado Show & Wine Tasting

    1. Porto: Cálem Cellar Tour, Fado Show & Wine Tasting

    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.

  • Porto: Guided Sailing Experience in Douro River

    2. Porto: Guided Sailing Experience in Douro River

    Departing from the convenient meeting point in Douro Marina, you'll have a pure sailing experience on a race boat while you can watch the magnificent views over Porto and Gaia river areas. Experience the unique feeling of using only the wind to move the boat and the adrenaline of moving on the water.   You can trim the sails, drive the boat, and take care of the functions on board or you can just relax and let the skipper do everything. Depending on the wind conditions, you can have a more extreme experience or you can ask the skipper to slow down and take things more smoothly.

    Great skipper with lot of experience in sailing. His instructions while sailing were very clear. As a complete beginner, it was great to experience the whole process of getting the sails up - down and basic sailing maneuver like jibing. We first went towards porto old town and then into the ocean. The wind was 35 knots and the ocean had big waves but the skipper was really great in his maneuver and judgement.

The visit is very interesting. The. Guide in French is very lively despite a soporiphic group It is FADO's show that you shouldn't miss. Simply intoxicating. And the expressive singer. MAGNIFICENT.

Super one hour fado concert during which we tasted two glasses of port. The visit to the cellars was a bit quick, however, but we had a great time!

The tour was interesting but a bit short. the Fado show was amazing!!! Overall very good value I highly recommend this tour
