What To Expect
Combine a cruise on the Douro River with a visit of famous Calem Port wine cellar and a Fado show!
Your tour begins with a 1-hour cruise on the Douro River at Cais da Ribeira, a district of downtown Porto located on the Douro waterfront which is the most picturesque part of the city.
Admire the colorful waterfront buildings, restaurants and bars from the cruise and see how locals and visitors like to take in the sun overlooking the river and Vila Nova da Gaia, the city on the opposite bank, where the famous Port wine cellars are.
We will cross 5 bridges connecting Porto and Vila Nova as we cruise down to the eastern end of Porto and up to the mouth of Douro River.
Your cruise tour is followed by a visit of the famous Calem winery. Explore the cellar with your professional tour guide and learn about the history of the Calem winery and how the Port wine is made, preserved and served. Then, enjoy a well-deserved Port Wine Tasting including a Ruby and a Tawny Port.
Finally, you will discover the Fado, this authentic portuguese music full of melancholy and longing, accompanied by Portuguese guitars during a Fado Show held at Calem winery. Feel the emotion in the voices of the expert female and male singers and the enthusiastic and talented guitarist.
