The tour itself is very nice and the buses are comfortable, but most of the plugs for the audio guide are not working, which was really disappointing. The quality of the audio guide is not that good: there are only 3 songs, which you have to hear over and over and over again and the voice (in German and on... More

HopON/HopOFF buses are a good option to see the city when you have not so much time. I had 1 day in Porto, so I've decided to tak the yellow bus to see the city. On the first bus I've taken the roof was not open, Also the driver didn't wait me to go out so I've almost fell of... More

We had a 48 hour pass which included a port wine tasting and a six bridges river cruise all for 22€ per person - great value. We did the tasting on the first day and the river cruise on the second. As with other city tours we have been on headphones were provided to give you information on the sights... More

June 2014 - Do NOT take any open top - bus tours of Porto - yellow, blue and red buses compete on similar routes. All you need to visit is in walking distance of the historic centre and the Port tasting houses.

There are 3 different colour buses offering differing routes around Oporto, red, blue and of course the best one - Yellow. Offering 2 different routes it is the only way to see the amazing Atlantic coast crashing onto the rocks and lovely beaches and getting up into where the serious fishing is done, jumping off and eating the freshest fish...

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
