The cellar tour was interesting, though brief. The Fado show was wonderful. Sitting with a glass of port ,looking out across the river while listening to such emotional songs and music was truly memorable experience.
Fado goes very well with Calem wine tasting. It is a great choice, I would definitely recommend this especially for the first time visitors.
Get tickets in advance because this sells out quickly. The Calem Cellars is a biggie when it comes to port wine and this is a popular cave in a convenient and attractive location by the river. The building looked like a newly renovated visitors and wine tasting center, which was very modern and attractive. First there is a tour and a tasting and then the fado performance begins, with a lady then a gentleman performing alone as well as a duet. The two guitarists were equally good and the music was terrific. Compared to the other fado I had been hearing during my trip, this was delightfully more upbeat in rhythm yet conveyed the same sadness and melancholy of the slower fado songs. A nice event. Please note that it wasn't easy getting a taxi back to Porto. The company called twice for a cab, but they never came. I finally tracked down one that was dropping off a passenger, but hailing a free taxi was difficult, so plan accordingly.
It is a great wine tour and show.
Great night out had all the flavour of Northern Portugal and it was really good value for money. The Calem cellers are on the other side of the river from the center of Porto, pleasant walk with all the old port transporting boats moored along side the quayside.
Nice wine tour and Fado night!
It was Fantastic
Professional tour. Nice location good port and great singers. Recommendation when visiting Porto
Very exciting tour, Maria our hostess was really kind and professional and speaks a perfect english. The tour is a bit quick, and in offseason a bit disappointing with only 6-8 people. The Fado Show is not a real show, but a beautiful concert with typical portuguese music. The women singing had a mind-blowing voice! They did everything to entertain us, it worth the time and the price! The only thing that could be better: some more information about the wines dueing the tasting. Thanks a lot, best regards!
Interesting wine Cellar Trip and great Fado-Show
