    This was a really fun and informative tour in Gaia. We went to 3 different Port wine houses and each was very different, so that was nice. There was some walking, but nothing too difficult. It was the biggest tour I have been on during my trip with 12 people on it, but our guide Joao (aka Rocky) was really good at dialing up the conversation and the fun throughout the group. We got to taste 10 wines in total, and the pours were very generous! Make sure you eat a big meal before you go on this tour! Definitely recommend!

    Very nice tasting tour with a total of 3 stations (2 x port wine and 1 x wine) with a total of around 20 people. The guide and the moderator at the wine tasting were very enthusiastic about the matter and thus you learned many things about port wine and the wine country of Porto that you didn't know before. At each rehearsal there were 4-5 glasses to try, and water was also served. Unfortunately, what was missing from the port wine tastings were small snacks (bread or cheese), which are usually served at wine tastings.

    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
