    Our tour guide Maria was fantastic and the guides at each of the port houses were very friendly and were happy to answer all our questions. Not too much walking and exactly the right amount of port and wine too! It was really interesting to learn about the history and process of port making, and a great variety of tasters

    The wine tour was good. Our guide was very energetic and knowledgable. The first stop (Solar dos Dragos) on the tour was probably the highlight. The gentleman there were funny and personable. He gave a great overview of their wines and ports. The second location was somewhat of a blur - I honestly can't remember the name of the place. I don't think anyone from the actual company talked to us - our tour guide gave us the overview of the wines. This was a bit disappointing as I expected a bit more of a personal touch. (I still bought one bottle from that company, but may have bought more if I knew more background about the company and had a personal interaction). The final stop on the tour, Churchills was great because there was so much information about ports and it was nice to tour their facility. The representative there was very knowledgable and gave us a great overview of their company.

    It was a nice tour with a relaxed guide. He told a short story at each place. Tasted good port but also a number of wines. The man at the wine tasting location was quite present and did a lot of talking. He really liked himself. Despite that, this tour is definitely recommended.
