Totally worth it! Very easy to use and super mich to see. Just get the voucher online, get the ticket from the bus driver and drive around two days. On the first day I did the two bus tours - one for the old town and the one that goes along the coast line. Was very nice & the audio guide gave a lot of information on history and culture. Also very easy to do the boat tour. Just go to the Cais da Estiva & show your ticket. For the wine tasting just call them in the morning when you want to visit them & show the ticket there. Was super easy, very nice :)

nice time spent at this concert. The didactic program allows an introduction to fado in its various forms. The musicians and singers are all very good. We left the performance with the desire to discover more of this musical universe.

Very pleasant Fado evening, explanations in French with audio guide, good Port tasting, and above all Fado sung to the sound of guitars, congratulations to the four artists!!!

Very enjoyable activity. The singers and musicians were brilliant and there was also a video explaining the origins and other information about fado. I strongly recommend it.

Absolutely amazing experience! Great set up and the stories were exciting. Definitely worth a visit!
