PROS - Service/staff: efficient and very friendly and smiley staff. - Price value: very reasonable, considering competitors offers. CONS - Maintenance: the buses should have a more careful maintenance. Buses itself and the sound system.

First - you really do need to use one of the tour bus companies in Porto in order to be able to see around the city. Second - the convenience of the stops the yellow bus made was terrific. But..... Our bus was in an accident - where we hit a young boy crossing the street who ended up under... More

When we travel to new cities well away from home, we enjoy an overview of the city. The on-off buses provide this. The busses are identified as red or blue route and run fairly frequently. Fare is €13 for a 2 day pass including port wine tasting. Headphones are supplied which you may keep. When guide is not speaking, Fado... More

They charge the same as the red and blue bus company yet only come every half an hour and with no timetables at the various stops it makes for long waits at each stop each time you want to get anywhere. The only positive was that the package deal came with access to the town busses too - but that... More

We took the Hop on Hop Off bus tour and took both routes for Euro15, which was excellent value (about 4 hours in total) as it gives you an idea of where you wan tot go/see. It also included a free tour of the Cockburns Port cellar and two free tastings of their port.

We found this tour on the internet rather than in Porto so we were very late booking but found the staff very helpful to book a trip on our last day. We were on a small 25 seater bus which was very comfortable with a very knowledgable guide who spoke French and English fluently. All the places we visited were... More

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

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.
