David was an outstanding tour guide plus the 4 hour tour and 7 tastings flew by! Great service and so enjoyable. David is a great example of a local guide who clearly wants everyone to enjoy Porto and Gaia.

Alex was great! We loved all the wine houses and learned a lot about port wine. If you like wine I highly recommend this tour when you’re in Porto. :)

Booked two days before with Viator. David met us at the bridge and was helpful from the start. Communicated well to the whole group and really looked after us all. Interesting tour of the A. Ramos Pinto port wine museum. A short walk through Gaia to another lodge and we then had a professional tasting lesson. Tasted a mixture of 7 different ports, which were delightful. David had a lot of knowledge about the history of the Gaia lodges and the ports.

Comprehensive tour and tastings at the port houses in Gaia. Tasted a wide variety of wines and learned from knowledgeable tour guide and reps at each house. Now that I've been once, I would probably return to specific houses independently, but a group tour was a nice introduction.

This tour was great! Our guide, David, was funny and knowledgeable and really made the tour a huge hit. We did another walking tour later on with another guide from this tour group, Porto Walkers, and it is clear that this tour company makes a big effort to hire not only knowledgeable, but also entertaining, guides.

It was my third Port tasting so by then I have already absorbed many of the classifications. Good guide, though he cracked too many jokes.

This was a long four hour tour, as we visited three wineries. It says 7 tastings so you think you'll be sipping at each stop, but it was more like visit them - learn a lot, and then try some port at the end. I think it could have done much better with walking and sipping or learning with the actual samples in front of you. The tour guides were all incredibly sweet, great at English and very informative. I think I would have chosen to just sample at the wineries on my own if I could do it all over.
