I have been on a number of city bus tours over the years and this one is probably the poorest. This doesn't mean its bad, its just note quite good enough. The audio just never seemed to be quite in sync to where you are.

Price - reasonable. Staff - friendly and knowledgeable. Safety features - grossly inadequate (especially stairs to second deck). Recorded commentary - worst of any hop-on hop-off I have ever used. . . extremely loud god-awful music interspersed with extremely brief and hopelessly low-volume commentary. No commentary whatsoever on brief boat tour of the river. Route - unpredictable, because street construction... More

Nothing wrong with the bus or staff (quite friendly in fact) the issue is that there is very little to this tour. They do take you all around the city, however, the audio guide has very little information or history for most of the key sites its was little more than this building was built in such an such year...

We were only in Porto for a day lovely city with lots to see. Used City sightseeing was ok but. the buses seemed to go over the same areas twice at least instead of a circular route. Time at some stops seemed to take ages and not because of loading's, maybe more to do with timings as it was the... More

This is a very good value bus trip offering two routes both showing plenty of the city including taking you out to the coast. We would recommend getting the two day pass so you can make the trip out to the coast and maybe enjoy the beach one day. The buses run on a regular basis and were clean and... More

Whenever my wife and I are on a city trip we always look for these deals. You get around to the "must see's" and the hopping on and off anables you to flex your timetable to your own preferences. In Porto you get more than the usual package, as they added a cable car trip to the Citadel and visits... More

What a ripoff. The audio system was so terrible you couldn't hear much which is likely better anyway. Terrible music played over and over, interspersed with the most boring and bland information disseminated. Why not provide an actual human guide who knows something about the beautiful city of Porto that would help it come alive? this is just your basic... More

Poor audio, lots of terrible music. Not enough interesting information about a beautiful city. It doesn't do it justice. But a good quality bus.

The route covers all the main points. However the audio commentary is rubbish, so the point of taking the tour is lost.
