I cannot recommend this tour enough. It was well paced and a great combination of informative and relaxed. I have taken many similar tours to this and if you are fortunate enough to have Alex you will be enjoying the tour as well as his guidance. He was both engaging and added a level of personal connection to the tour that was well received by the group.

Enjoyed the first place that we went to and Alex was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions . Recommend a Restaurant in Porto that was probably one of the best meals we had there. Walking a cross the bridge was interesting , too bad about the construction .

I always enjoy starting my mornings with a bowl of corn flakes with Tawny Port (who doesn’t?), so I took this tour to learn more about my favorite breakfast food. I’ve taken about 20 tours through Viator and enjoyed them all. My favorite was one in Florence where the tour guide left me behind and I met a young Italian woman, but that’s a whole other review. Anyway, this tour was “excellent” bordering on “awesome.” We started out as a group of somewhat stiff strangers. Seven tastings later we were friends. And definitely not stiff. In fact, I think my lady friend was invited to be a bridesmaid in another guest’s wedding as we wove unsteadily through narrow Porto streets. Good times. Alex was our guide. He was terrific. I asked a lot of questions; he always had the answers. We left knowing MUCH more than when we started, and with a genuine appreciation for port. I highly recommend. 👍🏼 13/10 I’d sign up for one of Viator’s famous Pub Crawls if Alex was the tour guide.

We took the Port Wine Lodges tour with 7 wine pairings. It was great. It lasted about 4 hours. We learned so much about port wine and how it’s made. Alex was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and funny. We actually went back to one of the locations the next day and bought some port wine to have shipped back to the United States. If you like wine, do this tour.

Great experience with wonderful host, Lucas! Enjoyed to 3 different port houses - all different and all offering another port perspective. Well organised and tastings were relaxed and unhurried. Lucas was always able to answer all our port and Portugal questions with interesting and fun anecdotes. Very pleasing last day in Porto, made some new friends and some new memories. There was a Duty Free purchase to take home!

Alex, our guide was very knowledgeable with excellent English and sense of humor. The wineries we visited were the less famous which was a great opportunity to experience new ports.

We really enjoyed the port tasting; plenty of port and the guide shared just the right amount of information and port history for it to be interesting. We had a great tour group; the more port we ‘tasted’ the more fun the tour :-)

This was a fun and interesting tour. The three stops provided a great overview and understanding of port and the diverse tastes and styles. The first at a large production winery gave a big picture of the whole process, then a small tasting site followed by an experience in a professional tasting room. Our guide, Alex, was knowledgeable, personable and made the whole tour fun.

Really great tour from Alex, who is a cool guy, knowledgeable about wine and genuinely makes sure that everyone has a nice time, gets chatting, clearly he's very professional at running tours but also clearly authentically friendly and interested. The port from the final tasting house was particularly lovely.
