I enjoyed the show a lot! Fado was a woman singing with one musician on a Portuguese guitar and another on a classic guitar. Had a short intermission to pass out port wine - was quite sweet. I don't drink wine but liked the taste of the sip I took. Location is fantastic, right outside the church and the Dom Luis I bridge, which is super convenient and great for seeing the sunset right after the show. Booking online was slightly cheaper than getting a ticket at the door.

Lovely cultural experience while in Porto! Sold out show that was very organized, punctual and accommodating. The singers and the band were phenomenal. To top it off, there was an (optional) Port wine tasting to fit the mood!

We had a great time. This show is really great, the musicians are top notch and the singer is incredibly talented! I strongly advise to spend an evening that is off the beaten path of the basic tourist.

What a wonderful experience! Highly recommend this beautiful fado! The sounds of the instruments and the amazing voice of the singer nearly made us cry. Thank you ☺️

Fabulous. Well organized and literally music to my ears. Port wine was a nice bonus.
