    Very nice excursion well organized. Visited by train from a few sites to the very interesting wine cellar and stopover in a beautiful restaurant with delicious buffet at will, for a competitive price. Just lack an audio guide with which the visit would be more comfortable although the explanations are given in all languages (a bit heavy)

    Got voucher online. Nowhere was it mentioned i then needed to change it to a paper ticket once there, so was told at last moment and missed the train. Had to wait for the next one. Staff not particularly cooperative at the office. All good at the porto factory. Good value tour

    It's about port

    The Port Wine tasting was very informative, we had a great guide! Unfortunately, in the back of the train the Speakers didn't seem to work and we couldn't hear any of the Information. In General, I felt that there could have been more Information during the train tour. All together, a really good tour to get an insight of Porto and learn about Port Wine
