Description

Immerse yourself in the flavors of Porto with this captivating river cruise, port winetasting, and live fado show. Following a float down the expansive Duoro River, delight in a sumptuous winetasting at Porto Cálem, and then steep yourself in the sounds of traditional Portuguese fado music.

Glimpse Porto’s exquisite 18th- and 19th-century buildings and distinctive cobbled streets while you glide down the tranquil Duoro River. Observe pedestrians walking leisurely to charming cafes and hip bars sheltered under characteristic medieval arches in the trendy neighborhood of Cais da Riberia. Then, catch sight of your next destination, Vila Nova da Gaia, the city that is home to many of the world’s most famous port wine cellars.

After disembarking the cruise, prepare for a pleasant 10-minute stroll through picturesque streets toward Porto Cálem, revered for making some of Portugal’s most outstanding wines. Here, sample Cálem’s special reserve port, becoming engrossed in the cellar’s history of winemaking that dates back to 1859.

As your day reaches its denouement, marvel at a live fado concert accompanied by acoustic guitar. Let your mind drift while you imbibe the emotive tones of this traditional Portuguese art form. Relax and sip a glass of wine before returning to the glistening city of Porto.

Really enjoyed the Calem port wine tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate. I learned a lot that I did not know before about port wines. The Fado concert was nice and the musicians and vocalists were all very talented, and their performance made their passion for the music very clear. The river cruise was just okay. The communication of where to board the cruise and where and what time to be at the wine tour and tasting could be improved.

Nice 50 min river cruise from Porto with no information given about the sites during the cruise. The boat let us off in Gaia in front of one place to taste Port. Then we walked to to another Port tasting place where we had a nice tour about how Port is made. Then we went to hear the live Fado show in the same building and tasted Port again. Expedia cost was higher than the cost here in Porto. Paying here would have been 36 euros per person (108 Canadian dollars for 2 people) and we paid $144 Canadian dollars for 2 people through Expedia. So no deal there.

Didn’t really enjoy this experience as it was too bitty, cruise under bridges was good. However Calem Port tour was not well organised and Fafi music not the best
