  • I went to Cockburn's knowing little to nothing about port wine and assumed from times as a student (always reliable, hah) that I disliked it. Seems times have changed me. I took a tour in an English speaking group. The guide had very good English and was easy to understand and exceptional knowledge of the facility (as I suppose you'd expect). The tour took in the heritage and background of the place, the different storage types and methods of aging, and the huge store warehouse amongst other things. My favourite was a video documenting the construction and reusing of the barrels by the expert coopers; it would have been amazing to see them working first hand. The tour was all incredibly interesting (more so than I expected) and a very enjoyable couple of hours. At the end we enjoyed a sample of 3 different port wines, one of which was a very palatable tawny. I'd definitely recommend going!
  • A really great place to do a tour. One of the biggest in the region, if not the biggest, their production is massive. Great ports to try and drink and the tour guide was so lovely and welcoming. Multiple tours in multiple languages and drinks for all. Worth the trip I’d say, even if it’s just for the bar.
  • Visited Cockburn's on a Wednesday, late morning, with two children. The staff could not have been more friendly. We skipped the tour (5 year old and 1 year old...) and went straight to the tastings, which were fantastic. We left with several bottles. If you're lucky, you'll be assisted by Isabel, who was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about Port. She made our experience an absolute delight. It was a great experience, especially after a poor one at Quinta dos Corvos, where they had no flight tastings and seemed preoccupied with stocking shelves over customer service.
  • Very good port tour. We only did one tour while we were in Porto but this one was very informative and interesting. There are various levels of tour, but the only difference is the ports you get to taste at the end. I would recommend getting the classic tour and then supplementing with additional glasses from the bar at the end (the extra glasses cost between €3 and €18 depending on the age/quality of the port).
  • Definitely our favourite tour. Friendly and competent staff and tour was very interesting with a well-dosed amount of information. Thorough yet very accessible and nicely paced at around 45-60 minutes. Nice selection of ports and good presentation by our guide. Well done!
