    Great visit. The part with the train is not necessarily memorable because we are trudged from left to right but it is still entertaining (especially for children). It is a shame not to see more monuments and that the part commented in French only happens when the monument in question is behind us. Very nice Portuguese music to entertain passengers. The visit to the cellar also went well. The film is uninteresting (not commented on so we don't learn anything in particular). The guide was great, however we learned a lot thanks to him, the interior of the cellar is impressive, magnificent, and the smell divine.

    Very nice excursion well organized. Visited by train from a few sites to the very interesting wine cellar and stopover in a beautiful restaurant with delicious buffet at will, for a competitive price. Just lack an audio guide with which the visit would be more comfortable although the explanations are given in all languages (a bit heavy)

    Pleasant trip, however the trip through porto could have been a little longer, as there is much more to see than what you saw on the trip. We had ordered with English speaking, and the guide in the Portvins cellars could be difficult to understand at times, as he mixed English and Portuguese.
