What people are saying about Vila Nova de Gaia

The Fado show was excellent! All in all about 9 songs (3 by a male singer, 3 by a female and 3 duet) all accompanied by 2 guitars. We were in Lisbon last year and fado is way more popular there. More difficult to find a good show in Porto. We had booked the event for the music and were happily listening for ~ one hour. The tour prior to the show was great as well and very informative. But you need to make sure to stay close to the guide as the groups are pretty large. Also as this tour is part of the yellow bus 48 hour pass as well.

Best Fado show in Portugal. Beautiful singing, expert guitar playing, great explanations of the music. We were all singing and clapping along by the end.

What an amazing night. And don't worry if you don't speak the language, it's just as beautiful to listen to without knowing the story.

Nice, cosy setting in the old town. Beautiful performance and good port wine!

Excellent show. A great experience while in Porto.
