This was an amazing experience! I booked this as a special evening out for my husband and I. We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised! The mini limo picked us up at our hotel promptly, and had a bottle of sparkling white wine and 2 wine glasses in an ice bucket awaiting for us in the back. Since it was a sparkling white, I wish the wine had chilled a little longer, but, it was nice nonetheless.. We had a nice comfortable ride to the restaurant. A gentleman drove, while Maria, our main point of contact pointed out some interesting, historical sites along the way. Maria was simply the best! Her attitude was friendly and hospitable. She was pleasant and professional, easy to talk to, and made us feel so relaxed.
What they don't tell you in the description of this event is that they take you to what is considered the best Fado restaurant in Porto! The food was amazing,. It included appetizer, two dinner choices, wine, and desert. Also, the music was beautiful. We sat through 3 sets with a trio band who accompanied a different singer for each set of about 15 minutes. We enjoyed each one very much, even though we do not speak Portuguese. Maria was promptly there to pick us up at the conclusion of the show and Escort us back to our hotel.
One note to be aware of is you should check to find out if your hotel is located on a street that closes to car traffic after a certain hour. Some streets in central Porto close after 8 pm and are open to pedestrians only. If it does, you may want to advise your driver via the contact number provided ahead of time. The city closes street to allow pedestrians to walk freely throughout the street to enjoy shopping and eating. In our case, the road was closed when we returned, but Maria brought us to the closest point, the entrance to our street about one block away. But, it was no problem as we miingled with others on our walk back to the hotel.
In summary, this was a great experience and we would definitely do it again!
