It's worth a one way ride...

Though €5 for a 600m ride may not be what I'd usually pay, it's the best place to take good photos of the other side of the river and probably the most convenient and easy way to... read more

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

Though €5 for a 600m ride may not be what I'd usually pay, it's the best place to take good photos of the other side of the river and probably the most convenient and easy way to descend from the upper level of Ponte Luís I.

When staying in the centre of Porto then the Teleferico is an easy way to get access to the wine cellars of Gaia at the river front.

On arriving in Gai the first thing we did was stroll down the old winding streets to the river - the cable car is well situated and it's easy to buy a ticket (€5ea) once you have toured Gai it's the ideal way of taking some of the pain out of climbing up to the walk way on the Dom... More

4 minutes for 5 Euro, not a must, but if you are in the area you will enjoy your trip up to the Jardim do Morro. Then you can cross the Dom Luis Bridge on foot.

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. However, that was before I knew you also get a free port wine tasting included per adult ticket. The port eine... More

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.
