What people are saying about Cálem

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.

Magnificent experience !! A 2-hour romantic stroll with an attentive crew. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend this outing and let yourself sail on the Douro under a fado tune (music of your choice) with your glass of port.

Informative tour, good length (approx. 30 minutes) followed by a fado show. There were two delicious ports and some crackers to try.

Interesting tour in the port cellars…very informative. Fado show and port tasting was good…..show maybe slightly too long.

Great tour and show. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend
