  • A tad expensive at Euro 17.5 for a 30 min tour of the port making process, but it comes with 30 mins of Fado music afterwards which was enjoyable. 
  • From the many port wine houses, we ended up here. According to tourist office not much difference, just look here where seat is.. because we also got extra ticket at the hop-on bus, this basement 2 x visited. Of different guides so 2 x different explanation. Depending on interaction or group or guide or time of day? tell them more. Now more knowledge of port and that is very nice. After tasting for people over 18, but the glasses with drink stand just ready and not pick them off and they offer the children another. Bit of a shame, but the port they taste is of very good quality! White and tawny!
