This is Porto's top tourist attraction - check for tour times as you must be on a tour to see it

There is a complete absence of information at the entrance. Just one long queue handled by one member of staff who, when it is your turn, informs you when the next tour is to take place. We had a choice of a further hour's wait for a Portuguese/French tour or 3 hours for the next tour in English. No-one can... More

Important: you must be on a tour to see the interior of the building. So, check for tour times. We visited the old stock exchange at about noon and I thought we had "struck out". No tour, no visiting the interior. The only afternoon guided tours did not fit our schedule. So we asked the ticket booth person if someone... More

I stopped there following the top sights in Porto, and it is a beautiful construction. I decided not even try to see if I could go in simply because even though its nice, I didn't find it striking enough for me to be in the top 20 things to see in Porto to be honest. For me would be a... More

This is an interesting building. The tour is well done but check to see that they have one in English (or whatever language works for you) at a time that is convenient as not all tours offer English. Tours are generally on the hour and last about 50 minutes. While the "bolsa" may be equivalent to a stock exchange in... More

Judging by the ads all over the place, this is one of Porto's unmissables. In my opinon it's a nice place to walk through for 30 minutes or so. Problem is: there are ONLY guided tours and even though the guides try their best, to most people all the details (especially dozens of Portuguese names) are deadly boring. Still, the... More

You have to go there since it is a really nice place, guided visit is pretty good and it is very original. Please keep in mind that you should approach first to book a guided tour since they are usually full and you may not find one available in your language just on arrival

I didn't think it was necessary to pay an entrance to see Palacio da Bolsa. Nothing special inside, i think i lost my time.

Guided tour in about 45-60 minutes. Really nice rooms and style. Interesting remarks which rooms are still used by government or what can be rent for other events. Only disturbing that guided tour was in English and Portugal in the same time, so first time story was in Portugiese, than in English. That add some waiting time and bigger noise.

It is a nice tour. If you have some time in Porto, I will recommend to go on this tour to learn about the commerce and history of Porto.
