It costs €5, lasts 5 mins, the view is not much better than from the bridge. The nice thing is that you get a tasting of porto wine in the price.

My husband and I went here today with our 3 year old daughter. I must say the views are great. Although the price for one way 4 min journey of 5 euros each (daughter didn't pay) was quite expensive.

Despite the fact that it was a gloomy day with some rain, the views were very nice of Porto and the river. We only paid for one way ! I am sure that if the weather would have been different, the views would have been much much better.

The view is nice, but you can get the same view from Novo de Gaia city anyway. It's a good choice if you drink some wine and you don't want to walk all the way up to the train station

Nice and easy-going. Wonderful to see the river and Porto from this angle. Worth going on. And definitely worth a visit to the Port producers once you get to the end.

It was great to get on the teleferico after crossing the top level of the bridge from Oporto to Gaia. Unfortunately the one-way price of 5€ per person in abusive and we almost walked away.

Having been on lots of other cable cars around Europe, we expected this to be expensive, but it was affordable, even if short! I think the price was €5 one way, and €8 return. Admittedly the view was more or less the same as you get from any high place on the Vila Nova de Gaia side of the river,... More

An inexpensive way to gan a panoramic view over Porto, and an easier way to travel up the hill from the riverside to cross the Duoro river

waited for 45 mins and then announced that repairs would take another 1-2 hours. Offered a refund. Didn't take it. Ticket is good for entire week. Decided to walk done & then took ride up. Views were spectacular . However, you are forced to pose for a picture and the if you wanted to buy it, it was 5 euros.

We got this included as part of the red bus 2 day sightseeing. Nice trip up, take pics at the top, cross the bridge, explore the monestary, good way to spend 1-2 hours.
