  • Absolutely class place! Very good place and excellent place! Only thing is the port is more expensive than amazon in the uk which is stupid but well it's still great.  more »
  • We didn't try all the "Port" experiences in the district but we did enjoy this one. It is a little way up the hill. The short walk round is informative and makes you want to go and visit the vineyards...  more »

  • Very well made and informative tour with audio guide. Lots of information, exhibits and audio visual presentation. But a bit like a museum visit. Personally, I prefer a tour guide giving the explanations. The tasting included is not very generous, the cheapest white and simplest red of the house. But if you are ready to pay extra, there is the possibility to taste some truly exceptional Port Wine. Like the 1966 Colheita single harvest (24€) or the "Scion very old port", but that comes at 120€... a glass! :-) The restaurant has a very nice view on the river and the bridge from the terrace.
  • This is my favorite port house and I enjoyed my visit. But it's really oriented on that brand, too much shameless advertising. The tour repeats much of the same information and is a bit boring. Had to skip some audio stuff at the end. There is not even a price reduction when you are there on the Porto :( really sad about that. But overall it was quite nice and great staff. For sure we recommend.
  • Started with wine tasting and ended with dinner. Great sea bass and even better chocolate texture dessert. Fantastic view of the north side of Porto.
  • I opt for the Taylor Vintage 2009. It costs 8 euros per glass. The wine is sweeter than most of the wines I've tasted and a little bit strong. I simply love it, and I definitely would recommend others to have a taste here.
  • While we didn't do the tour, we were recommended to try Taylor's 10 and 20 year ports by other tourists so we nipped in but we would have stayed longer as the bar area and the grounds are, well spectacular. I would do the tour here, much more to see than other yours and the ports just as tasty.
