Tour starts with a short history of Calem Port house and various visuals about production etc - would be good to have a few more mins downstairs as there wasn't actually any time to read any of the information as guide would immediately take you to the next area! Wine tasting during live Fado music was enjoyable - would prefer a few more mins to browse the exhibition downstairs (what's the point of having information displayed if they don't give you any time to read it?!) as music went on for a little too long. A nice experience nevertheless

Interesting tour with lots of information about wine making. The tasting and the Fado were good . Unfortunately the show was disrupted by a very loud and inappropriate groups . My only negative comment is the the room was too crowded to my taste on COVID world. Otherwise is a great experience.

The tour was rushed so we can get 5 mins before the fado show so that was not great. 2 glasses of Port, 1 red and 1 white and some crakers for the tasting. these were on the table ready to have while you listen to the show. the fado was nice, I think that saved the tour.
