Interesting tour and something to do while in Porto. A lot was sold out including the caves tour but they had different tours in each language which made it nice. After the tour, you get a couple of port samples.

The Sandeman Cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia in the midst of all the port lodges is well worth a vist. Although the tour is quite short, it is very interesting and the tasting of various port styles that follows is both educational and enjoyable!

Interesting visit which includes 2 tastings of Port. Tours get booked up so you may need to book in advance at busy times. The shop has lots of gifts at reasonable prices as well as more expensive bottles of Port.

This was the largest port seller we toured. The tour was about an hour and included a short movie and two wine tastings for 10 euro. The cellar was conveniently located right at the heart of Gaia and street level, so no uphill climbing.
