An Afternoon of Fun with Alex
Anne_B
, Jul 2022
We had a fantastic afternoon with Alex! He is so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and just plain fun!! We were lucky to have a great international group of people who ended up going for drinks (all) and dinner (some) afterward. The tasting afternoon was a nice mix of big/commercial and more intimate port cellars. It is recommend that you have tried port wine before as a few people in our group had not and didn’t know how strong it can be or didn’t like the sweetness. If you know you like port wine, this is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon (and maybe the evening). It was a perfect 10!

My wife was ill and we tried to contact the tour to cancel but were unable to Suggest actual contact number of guid as we could have met part way through the tour
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear sir, you did not attend this tour. You booked this tour through a platform that has a 24h refund policy as you can read on the terms and conditions. You did not book directly with us or contacted us before the tour to say that you were not coming. During the actual tour happening, viator notified us that you were not coming. We responded immediately saying that we were inside the cellar with your tasting served. Obviously was not possible to refund a product that was served by then. Had you contacted us before the tour, we would have rescheduled your activity. We even give vouchers to come other time or offer to someone. But we were never contacted for that to be possible. Therefore, it's a vey unfair review. Kind regards Ana

We did the Port Wine Lodges Tour with Anna. She was an amazing guide and we learned a lot about Port Wine, the region and Prorto and Gaia. She spent time with everyone on the tour and even helped us with recommendations on wineries to visit in Douro as well as restaurants in Porto. Could not recommend this tour more highly! Great way to spend an afternoon!

This tour was amazing! I only had one full day in Porto and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it. The locations we visited were great and varied, the port was delicious and our tour guide Alex was a real treat! Very charming, funny and knowledgeable. Our time was well spent - the right amount of information and time spent tasting and talking amongst the group. Our group had a wonderful time. This is an absolute must-do in Porto!

Ciril was our guide and he did a really good job. He is local and knew much about local history and port wine. Our group on Monday was quite cool and we even go for dinner together after tasting the wine. The only thing is that the group size can be smaller… Highly recommended nevertheless!

Alex took on us on a fun port perambulation and tasting. He made special effort to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable, then shared his wealth of information about port in an accessible and humorous way. We had many laughs, met people from all over the world and tasted a wonderful variety of ports. Ending up in the professional tasting room at Cruz was a particular treat, topped off by sunset on their rooftop lounge looking toward Porto. Highly recommended.
