Loved where it took us and the views

This was reasonably priced and gives you awesome views and comes out at the top of the Porto bridge which is scary and exciting to walk across. Don't look down. Aaaahhhh. An easy... read more

As many other reviewers have noted, this is a very short trip but gives you a chance (but have your camera ready) to take some nice pictures of the city of Porto on the opposite side of the river. A bit pricy for the duration but this is in a touristic city so what do you expect? Do it if... More

This was reasonably priced and gives you awesome views and comes out at the top of the Porto bridge which is scary and exciting to walk across. Don't look down. Aaaahhhh. An easy walk back if you only buy a one way ticket and want to mix it up

The easy way to get down from the top of the bridge crossing the river to the waterfront in Gaia. You have to be ok with heights!

It is not necessary to take a ride for the view as there are some other Miradouro (viewpoints) in Porto. You can easily get the view by walking across the upper level of the Luis I Bridge. It is very short ride for 5 erous (single trip) and it's not much worth it.

It's okay, and it'll save you a long, long walk. On the other hand, it's overpriced for a three minute trip, and the staff is useless.

Sure it's a fun ride. Especially when it's just the two of you, but € 5,- per person is too much. We walked from the bridge to the other entry point of the Teleferico, so on the one-way back we really did not feel anything was added besides the fun of riding the Teleferico itself.

Really enjoyed our rides on the cable car a couple of days ago. Wonderful views of the river Duoro and Porto in the background. Staff friendly. We took our own pics in the cable car but they took one of us and it was only 5 euros, so a nice memory and we both looked good in it:) It costs... More
