  • Great tour. Very informative, not too long, guide is funny and speaks good English. And after the tour you get to taste two delicious port wines.
  • Nice enough port history and education tour. Nice and cool inside and quite nice, 2 glasses of Port to taste. Good way to start your late morning Port tasting along the river, highly recomend.
  • Take a tour at evening with fado show a port wine tasting. Everything is 17,5 euros.
  • They do a very nice tour, it is basic but very well explained. At the end they give you two glasses of wine to taste them. I am not a wine fan, but that wine he was the best I had ever had. We left the Caves Calem with a white wine after the taste 😉, it was too very good
  • We did the tour with the fado show which is a nice touch. The tour itself felt a bit rushed though but their port wine was good
