Where do I even start? First of all, it's impossible to find the stops because the online and physical map doesn't show where the stops actually are. So far we've basically walked everywhere because we couldn't find any stops. We managed to use the bus...More

As in common with others bus tours, the "BLUE" sightseeing tour suffers a bit from outside factors, such as roadworks, traffic congestion, and the occasional diversion. This tour suited us , and its inclusion of Foz is a real bonus. The commentary was a little...More

We bought the two day hop on hop off ticket to see Porto and included the Douro river cruise. Excellent value at €18 each. The commentary was really interesting with good sound quality. Would definitely recommend.

We bought a two-day-ticket including bus and boat. The audio on the bus was available in many languages, but was badly syncronized so you never really knew where to look. The stops weren't advertised in any way, so it was hard to know where to...More

Good opportunity to have a general overview of the city, also - one can at any stop "hop-off" and later "hop-on" again. This is good if one has not come with a group tour. Regarding the audio-guide - the choice of languages was OK -...More
