  • Porto: Cálem Cellar Tour, Fado Show & Wine Tasting

    2. Porto: Cálem Cellar Tour, Fado Show & Wine Tasting

    Fado is an important part of the collective Portuguese soul, born in the taverns of the 19th century and an iconic symbol of the Portuguese culture. This 75-minute program includes a visit to the Cálem wine cellars to learn about ancestral traditions. The visit is followed by a tasting of two port Wines (white and special reserve), which are served to you while you enjoy a Fado performance. The Fado performance features both male and female voices accompanied by traditional Portuguese guitar and classic guitar. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear to the music and experience the soul of the country.

    A really great early evening experience. The tour of the lodge was informative and most interesting. This was followed by an excellent 50 minutes of fado music with two musicians and two singers. Whilst we listened to the music we drank two port wines, a white and a tawney. I can recommend this wholeheartedly.

We ended up the only two on the tour, so we had a “private” tour with Claudia Macedo. She was fantastic. It was so nice to have a guide who both grew up in the city and still lives there. She shared so much about the city, history, architecture, culture and her own memories and experiences. The restaurants for breakfast and lunch were nice, and the tastings in between were wonderful. We plan on visiting them before we leave Porto in a couple of days. But the best thing of all was Claudia herself.

A really great early evening experience. The tour of the lodge was informative and most interesting. This was followed by an excellent 50 minutes of fado music with two musicians and two singers. Whilst we listened to the music we drank two port wines, a white and a tawney. I can recommend this wholeheartedly.

Wonderful experience. From being picked up in the middle of Porto, on-site briefing and the really amazingly fun tour, everything was perfect. The guides were nice and courteous and you could sometimes go to the limit with the buggies. Great value for money and an unforgettable experience!

Patricia was our excellent tour guide. She drove very well, she explained a lot about Portugese history and the cities we visited. We we with 5 American tourists and Patricia could speak good english. I recommend this very interesting tour. Thank you Patricia and Get your Guide
