We took the boat with the visit to the winery. Luckily I followed the recommendations that I had read, and nothing else. Once we got there we started downloading the audio with the QR that is on the seats. The truth is that we had to follow quite a few steps and even so the trip began and we had not made it... The winery was very cool, although I was expecting the longest visit, they only explained to us the different types that are made and then a small tasting.

Bought this tour package straight on line due to excellent reviews. Easy ticket pick-up with super friendly staff at the ice cream vendor. Easy access onto the boat with great boat ride on the Douro - saw all the bridges - just drunk in the great atmosphere. I took videos of the boat ride so will access commentary later when I review them. Wine cellar tour was very good but a little too much waiting around for an English guide as we were a bit pressed for time with so much to do in Porto so we went with an Italian guide who helpfully gave us some English explanations. We tasted two port wines - a white and a vintage. Overall an excellent experience and would thoroughly recommend.

The activity is fine and allows you to do something more relaxed. But you are misinformed. There is a QR on the seats of the boat that allows you to listen to an audio guide simultaneously with the trip, but since they do not explain it to you, when you manage to download it, you are already halfway through the trip... In addition, the reservation of the hold is independent and you can run out of schedule to do it in your language on the same day. Our advice is to go to the ice cream parlor (which is a "walking stall" in front of the pier) at least one day before and pick up both the tickets for the boat and those for the hold in order to book early and avoid last-minute queues.
