This tour was excellent. Our guide was very knowledge and friendly. We had an excellent morning. The port tasting was excellent, no pressure from the port company and the tapas meal also excellent. The owner of the restaurant was no friendly and the food really good. I cannot speak highly enough of this tour and what good value for money it was.

My friend and I were disappointed with this tour. Having done something similar in Lisbon in January we were really looking forward to it as the Lisbon one was superb. This poor review is not to do with the guide as he was really friendly and informative, more to do with the content not being as described - as well as the quality of the tapas! We met at the market entrance but were not shown inside or given the opportunity to shop for ingredients neither did we visit the Majestic Café one of the most historic meeting spots in Porto. We did stop to sample the jams but the pieces of cheese to accompany the jams were miniscule, although there was some sliced croissants on offer as well as the cheese. The proprietors seemed keen to sell the produce rather than just offer information and samples. The port wine tasting was excellent with four quality ports to sample and a very passionate and knowledgeable owner. Last stop was the tapas. We had been shown the restaurant en route to the wine cellar and told to return there at 7pm. This meant we had well over an hour to kill after the port wine tasting ended. The guide left us during the port wine tasting. Upon returning to the restaurant we were given a bowl of olives and some bread with a selection of sliced sausage cooked in olive oil. This was it for the feast on traditional tapas plates and to add insult to injury we were not given the mug of house wine to accompany our very limited food! All in all a misleading description of the Tapas and Port Wine Walking Tour and overall a disappointing experience.
