Super touristy and quite expensive. Essentially a posh was of getting from the riverside to the higher level of the bridge. You do get good views and when we visited it was quiet, so no queuing. We did get a free tasting of Port as part of the ticket but this is worth about €1.50. It's maybe worth doing, it's... More

Took the tram from Oporto to Vila Nove de Gaia across the Pont Luis and then the Teleferico down to the waterfront. The views from the cable car were exceptional allowing for many perfect photo ops. It was also to avoid the long walk down and more importantly the long trek back uphill from the port cellars and restaurants along... More

This really doesn't go anywhere. It runs along side the river, taking you from the river walk up to the top of the hill where you can walk across the bridge. But it does give one a chance to grab some nice pictures from a good vantage point.

A very short ride (5 minutes). When it is a nice day you will make a nice pictures of old town of Porto. A bit pricey for return 8 euros.

The cable cart is great for a nice overview of the city. It is also useful if you don't feel like walking all the way up the hill. Useful tip: There's a guy at the entrance door taking your photo. They sell it at the end fo the trip! If you do not want a photo for 5 EUR and... More

The Douro river is so beautiful. The gondola is a perfect way to glide along the riverside. The entry point was a little difficult to find, but it was easy and inexpensive to ride the gondola to the lower streets. The ride is smooth and quick.
