As we waited and waited for the yellow bus which ran every 45 minutes to an hour apart we watched several red buses go by. There was no announcement of which stop we were approaching. The stop buzzer did not work. The English audio guide was minimally informative. We did use the ticket to get on the local buses when... More

We bought tickets for the blue bus - it was constantly late and occasionally missed one of the 30 minuet schedules - twice we waited for almost an hour. ,eat while the red and yellow buses came much more frequently and on schedule. What you saw was great but you cannot rely on their schedule. Don't book the blue bus... More

1) You wait forever for the buses! Well over an hour. We tried 5 times and were only successful twice! You can see how much time was wasted in our short stay. Awful! We ended up catching a cab even. 2) Audio systems didn't work for most seats. You'll be lucky to find two that work next to each other,... More

I relied on using the map they provided to let me know where we were on the route. Couldn't plan properly to make a stop as it was too late to get off the bus. There was only the driver, no other staff to assist you. Not planning to use this tour bus again.

We managed to get seats down stairs - but more and more people were allowed on until there were about 15 or 20... More

Using the Yellow bus in Porto is a great way to get an overview of the city. We took the two-day-ticket including the boat ride and the Portwine tasting. Good experience, although they should have informed us that for the wine tasting you had to make a booking. Frequency and punctuality of the buses were the negative points. And they... More

Although the 2 routes are a good idea ( we did the historical castles purple route) and got off at stop 10 at Foz at the confluence of the river and the sea and then caught the bus again an hour later (although the bus was 15 minutes late even though only the 2nd of the day).

Average city bus tour. Only about half the headphone ports working. Failed to collect or inform any of the customers waiting that they had detoured from the Portside after 2pm. Only offered further trip once contacted , really not bothered.
