  • We went in this one as the logo looked like Zorro! Didn't know what to expect but it was a good tour for 10 euros each even if I'm not a fan of Port!  more »
  • Very nice visit ... so much for those who know how to who you want to meet! Visit of 30 minutes, but it's good to make the reservation before.

  • Decent view, excellent wine. Tried my first tawny 30 here, aww. Very central location, fast and professional service. Ok cocktails, but turns out I'm not really a fan of mixing good port wine with sugary fluids.
  • After standing in line for about 25 minutes, the desk employee said the last tour was just fully booked. Ot was quite an annoying experience but I don't think there was a lot tondo about it. Sandeman is definitely the most famous house on the strip, there is a free small museum inside. The building is quite impressive.
  • I would avoid this for the tour as it attracts the big tour groups from coaches that park themselves annoyingly on the main strip south of the River Douro. Other than that the art gallery bit is free to visit and tasting a couple of ports in their outdoor area is really not a bad way to enjoy the port, people watch and reminisce about our time in Porto.
  • Amazing and tachfull of Port colture. Its a must
  • All Porto cellars are amazing I particulary like the Sandeman brand. Its great to know more about it during the guided visit.
