While this wasn't our favorite wine cellar tour, we still enjoyed our time. The tour group was very large and at times we were right next to other groups - making it hard to hear our guide at times. Our guide was knowledgeable though and there were some neat digital exhibits that added a layer to the tour.

A very informative tour. Sufficient technical information delivered in a friendly and charming manner. Very clear and spoke with good English. It was very obvious our guide had genuine passion and love for the subject of the production of port wine. After the tour we were taken to the music room. A small stage was displayed. The musicians were of the top quality and the singers delivered an outstanding performance with bravado and passion for the music of Fado. We enjoyed two glasses (tawny and white) during the musical performance both delicious. The tour and performance were the perfect duration. The Calem cellars are a must to enjoy a taste of Porto musically and through port wine.

A really great early evening experience. The tour of the lodge was informative and most interesting. This was followed by an excellent 50 minutes of fado music with two musicians and two singers. Whilst we listened to the music we drank two port wines, a white and a tawney. I can recommend this wholeheartedly.
