Very entertaining evening, giving an image what fado is about. It should be emphasized that singers and musicians are not using mics during the concert.

Two singers, 3 guitars and one string bass made a perfect show. ~1 hour of singing. Each singer sung ~three songs, than there was a short break to taste a glas of Portwine. Afterwards they sung another 6 songs more or less. Beautiful music and voices. I really enjoyed it
The seats are assigned by staff which I also liked so it's less stressful if you are late ;)

Excellent Fado show! The presentation lasted about an hour. There were 2 Fado soloists and they were both fabulous. Half way through the concert we were served a glass of Port wine. Very nice ambiance. Well worth it!

Amazing experience. Two singers - beautiful voices and souls. Four great musicians. There was a break to drink a glass of porto wine. Each person in Casa da Guitarra was kind and amused.

Amazing show with beautiful strong vocals and lovely sound of the guitars. Wine served during an interval was extremely tasty. You were able to tell that performers really enjoy doing what they do, when they continued playing and singing even after the show was over and you had time to look around the museum of a fascinating history of a guitar.

I was really looking forward to attending a performance here as not something I have experienced before and it definitely did not disappoint. Three brilliant guitar players and two singers. It lasted one hour with a short interval and a glass of Port. It is a very intimate performance which added to the atmosphere. I highly recommend and would love to go back another time.
