As in some other comments ,great if you don't want to hear the commentary..Repetitive music louder than the commentary so very annoying. It's obvious this company does not care as long as it gets your money. Also booked the 6 bridge river cruise with them , the girl in the kiosk gave the incorrect departure time. We have used hop...

Porto is a fairly large town so walking all of it is not viable. Hopping on and off these busses is a very convenient to get around town. Expect to wait about half an hour if you stay at one stop. If you're in the downtown there are so many of these going around that you can keep walking until... More

Yellow Bus operates two different tours in Porto, one focused on the castles exclusively, and another that focuses on the ancient landmarks and significant squares and buildings. I found the tours to be a great way to acquaint myself with all that the city has to offer, and then decide for myself what I wanted to explore further. Their pre-recorded... More

We did our usual bus tour in Porto as we normally do in an unknown city. Porto has the luxury of three tour bus operators (Red, Yellow & Blue). We took the Yellow Bus option for a change. Bad mistake. We went upstairs as one does for the best views but we found that most of the audio systems did... More

When I got to Porto I didn't know anything about the city so I decided to take this tour bus and it was great. First of all you get a day long pass and you can tour the entire city by getting on and off different spots just by paying one price. Their's two routs you can take but either... More

We got heavy rain while in Porto, so our only option was the bus. The tour was very nice, it even had explanation in Japanese, the kids enjoyed very much. We loved the fado music between de explanation, does anyone knows the name or the singer of the music?

This was my second visit to Porto, and this time I had enough time to take a tour, which lasts approximately two hours, and provides a stunning and enjoyable perspective od all main attractions of this beautiful city. An excellent way to get to know it in a time efficient way. The driver was very kind, and patiently explained all... More

Great way to see the city. I always do hop on tours and this one was good. Weather was raining and even sitting downstairs you got wet as it was dripping through. Drivers very friendly and upbeat even in the bad weather and would stop longer so people could pop out the door to take pictures as we couldnt sit... More

We were in Porto for a short stay, so we chose the hop-on/hop-off bus to take the most of it, The driver was extremely gentle and helpful, which was great since we were travelling with small kids. The sound from the headphones was quite clear and the content about the attractions was very informative. Would recommend!

Have used yellow bus in Lisbon on two trips and it was great, very disappointed in Oporto. Struggled to hear the commentary even with it turned up, sometimes it did not match what you could see, would go past some interesting looking buildings and there would be no commentary. Worst of all was the music when there was no commentary,... More
