One of the better port house to visit with reasonable price. Although in general most of the port houses in the area are so commercialized these days compared to years ago, you miss the enthusiasm...

Overall it was a pleasant tour of the Porto cellars. The tour is about 40 minutes long and very informative about the history and making of the Porto wine. The only negative was the video at the end that explained everything the tour guy had just told us (minus the Portuguese accent) I’d still recommend the tour because like he said.. the best part is the tasting at the end. You get to try the classic white Porto and the tawny reserve Porto.
Very interesting tour in the lodge and the caves. Forth all the money. There's a nice Sandeman bar in front of the lodge which has nice selection of port cocktails and small bites.
