Our guide Pedro was spectacular, he explained everything to us wonderfully and showed us the entire city. The view of the wineries is very interesting.

the explanations and the person who received us was pleasant, attentive, she took the time to explain to us the progress of the outing.

The audio was missing on the train, we went through several places without knowing what it was.

The city tour was great and the visit to the Port cellars was very interesting!

We had booked the winery tour in French and we had a tour in English.
