My partner and I really liked this experience. The guide at the Calem was really nice and tried to explain everything in a really short time (half an hour). I enjoyed the Fado show, the musicians and singers are really good. We tried 2 glasses of wine and it was totally worth the money I recommend.

The whole activity was good, between the visit and the history of the cellar until the tasting at the same time as the fado show. What I found was missing was knowing the two glasses of port during the tasting, we had to sit at a table without knowing the origin of the two glasses to be tasted (a white port and a red).

It was a round thing. First a guided tour through the interactive museum, where the guide gives a brief and concise insight into the production and history and an overview of the different types of port wine. Then you are led into a large hall where you can then taste 2 port wines. Meanwhile you can watch the fado show ☺️. For someone who is not necessarily a wine connoisseur and just wants to try port wine with the background music of traditional Portuguese music, it's great.
