Good value at 10E for the tour including two good measures of port - the white was very good. The building is a little way back from the front and, unfortunately for Offley, in the middle of some road works. Well worth the trip though.

I guide was very good and we learned so much about how port wine was created and differences between certain types. Our family loved our tour and the experience.

Visit here for a small cellar. They had a great showing of museum type old equipment. Our tour guide was a little disengaged. OK to visit if you are seeing several for a comparison - but not a priority

It was pouring, dark and dismal and it was 3.00pm in summer, but this was our favourite part of our stay in Porto. Offley Port takes a small group around their caves accompanied by a very knowledgeable, likeable, and quite animated guide. She really engaged...More

The place is very nice and the price of the guided tour and the wine tasting is very affordable (we entered as a group), the wines are tasty and the information given is very interesting. Everyone visiting Portugal should taste the local Porto wine
