It's everything as advertised, the audio guide worked well, but I recommend downloading before hand because it is 100MB+ If you book the Cruise with the Cellar Tour, the process is kind of convoluted depending on what language you speak. English language cellar tours are usually in the mornings and the cruises start at 9:30, so you can realistically only book the first two time slots for both events. Also when you get your vouchers from the ice cream stand, go early enough so that you have time to walk to the Cellar and book the tour in person before you board the boat. (14 min round trip walk)

Very well organized combo offer! The tuk tuk tour was just long enough and after that we could easily take the next boat along the 6 bridges. The guide at the Tuk Tuk immediately gave us enough information about how we could do other activities. The tasting was very interesting, clear guide, tasty port! Recommended!

had a wonderful tour guide that was knowledgeable and fun! only downside is that I am still waiting on someone to contact me regarding a reimbursement of one of my tickets since we had someone get sick

The wine tour was fun. It gave us lots of information about Porto wine. This tour was recommended by our walking tour guide. I am glad about taking his advise.

Our guide Nisa was excellent. Very patient, knowledgeable and helped us find a seat when our toddler slept off!
