Beautiful tasting room with knowledgeable staff and stunning surroundings in Gaia. Porto is the home to many ports. Education is important about this historic wine

Hello, We didn't book in advance, we just turned up and it was pretty quiet (about 3pm on a weekday). The tour is by audio guide and that's included in the price, provided to you when you pay.
