About the ride
Your wine-tasting experience will begin by a personal pickup for your hotel or apartment in Porto. The driver will take you to the best wineries in Porto by driving through the most picturesque places in the town.
You will have a chance to admire the panoramic views of the city from the iconic Dom Luís Bridge in Porto. During this ride, the Welcome Driver will share his personal insights about the city and recommend the best wineries to visit.
Among the top-rated wineries is Graham's Port Lodge. Founded in the 19th century, this winery kept its prestige and is a perfect place to taste traditional Porto wine. It is possible not only to taste their wine, but also to visit wine cellars, but prior reservations are a must.
Cockburn's Port Lodge has the enormous quantity of Port wine in oak barrels and vats made of wood. Locals and travelers say that it is a memorizable experience to visit this Port Lodge. Reservation is required here as well.
Another winery or so-called Porto Lodge is Augusto's. It is possible to have a short tour and Porto wine tasting there and the prices are more than reasonable there. Even though it is a small winery, it has a unique atmosphere with very knowledgeable staff which makes your visit so special.

Frequently asked questionsExpand
What happens after I book?
Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at email@example.com for any specific questions regarding your booking.
Can I customize the tour based on my needs?
Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.
Will there be an official tour guide?
An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience focuses on the local’s perspective. The drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of the visit but they cannot be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you like to include an official tour guide in the experience, please, let us know via email after the booking is completed.
In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
Accessibility & Special Needs
Should anyone in your group have special needs or have advanced accessibility requirements, please specify upon booking and we will make sure to accommodate your needs and customize your tour accordingly.
