The Group for this Tour was 20 pax, which in my opinion was too large for this type of excursion. It did not help as it was raining most of the time during the Tour. Running in between buildings dampen the mood for drinking wine.

Response from portowalkers-Ana, Gestor at Port Wine Lodges Tour Including 7 Wine Tastings

Dear, first of all Porto is a rainy city in this season. We do recommend in the email to be prepared for the weather. I am sorry you were not expecting rain, although it's December, but it is out of our hands and we do our best despite the rain. About the group size, it is written on the website and email the maximum of people on this tour - 20 people. Which is not a large group for us as guides, for the space of the cellar and professional tasting room, for the atmosphere and for an activity of this price range with what you have included - visit to the cellar and 2 port wine houses with 7 port wines. We have a different tour with limit of 10 people for a higher price range - to pay for the exclusivity. I would recommend to read thoroughly or confirm with the company the sizes of groups and options available for your preferences. kind regards

We did a port wine tour with Alex, and he was really knowledgeable and passionate about it. The wine tasting is a great introduction to port wine, especially if you are someone who has yet to try port wine - it’s a must when in Porto!

We enjoyed the tour really much. Our guide lucas was really kind and we could ask him lots of questions. Only the museum part was a bit to long on our opinion. But further it was defenitely worth the money
