“Best €2 I've spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Jaw dropping view of the bridge, a nice cool cabin with great vistas up and down the river. Wife and daughter had not been on a funicular before and loved it.

More fun on the way down than up.

“Lovely view of the river, shortcut to metro from ribeira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a lifesaver when you've spent the afternoon drinking and eating in the zona ribeirinha and just want to get back to baixa or the metro without having to climb back up the Sé stairs or the Rua Mouzinho da Silveira. Just do it! Bring change for the fare!

“Modern and handy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Handy even if you go down, but even more if you go up from the lower level of Ponto D. Louis I. Interesting perspective of the bridge, clean but it will cost you few EUR for a ride. Stops operating relatively early in the evening, which is a shame.

“No stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

At least one way not to climb a hundred stairs to get into the historical part of Oporto! Or after visiting up, a nice way to get your port wine down at the ribeira!

“So useful and nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is the nicest public transport in Porto. It offers you great views and saves you the climbing to the upper lever of the D. Luis I bridge.
