    worst hop bus ever
    The very worst of 10-12 hop buses I've done. Yellow bus has only 2 buses on each of 2 routes, so if you miss a bus, you have to wait for an hour. The other company has many buses. Stops are few, with small "Tour" sign and visible from only one direction. We wasted half our ride looking for audio on top level that 1 had power, 2 ear jack could go in the hole, and 3 had volume control. Boat ride was good, so consider taking a taxi (~15 euro) from cruise port, buying boat ticket and walking around the historic center.

    Better pick another line.
    Audio is mostly music- few facts about city and history. Red line is better than blue line but neither is exceptional. Drivers will stop and leave you for 20 minutes- you are expected to wait. Overall- I’d try a different company.

    Wish We’d Known!
    We waited over an hour each day to get a bus. 2 times, the stop we wanted were closed. Wasn’t great. Never got to go on the furnicular or trolley as the stops were closed!

    Worst ever.
    This was the worst experience ever. Had to stand for the whole route, at least 1 1/2 hours. No audio for those standing and many with seats. Windows fogged over so couldn’t see what you didn’t know you were missing. Bus over packed and it was a pretty dangerous way to “explore “ the city. This couldn’t end soon enough! We didn’t get on at the first stop but the second one and when the bus got to the first stop everyone but us got off, including the driver. After waiting for about 5 minutes I asked him when it was going to leave and he said 20 or 25 minutes. It never crossed his mind that we might be interested to know that! This outfit gets a big zero in every category as far as I am concerned!

    Yellow Bus tour of Rome
    We had three days in Rome. On the second day we went on the Big Bus tour of Rome. The following day, we went on the Yellow Bus tour. This was far superior to the Big Bus with a much better quality audio guide system, a longer route, and stops at sites that were more appropriate if one is interested in significant Christian history in Rome.

    Don't Do Yellow!!
    Horrible communication. There was construction and stops where skipped but no warning. Also there is no way to know where you are without paying special attention to the signs on street when bus stops. Online tracking of busses is useless. Audio on bus gets out of sync with your actual location. We did both Porto and Lisbon with Yellowbus. Lisbon was a bit better but would not rate more then 2.5 stars. We waited for 1 hour at 1 point since the bus didn't stop at the sign an we missed it. At the same stop the blue bus came by like 6 times and the red bus about 3 times. Would NOT do yellowbus ever again.

    Good way to get orientation but needs more buses
    Once we finally located a yellow bus we hopped on and stayed on first time around due to the infrequency of the bus arrivals. The routes themselves are excellent and provides good overview and orientation. The Duoro River boat ride was good once we identified where we needed to be and had a time allocated for our purchased tickets - this part needs to be clearly explained

    Worst experience- trying for refund- never got your!
    This we code never came thru! We chased down the bus in 3 different locations. Each time we were yelled at & sent away to a place which again didn’t let us on!

    Not good value for money
    The bus was really just a bus service. Most of the tour is just terrible music. I think it would have been better value to get a metro pass because we just used the bus to get into the city. It wasn't informative. Getting the boat was fun but it was raining and it took us over an hour to find the right place to get the boat.

    Think twice before buying a yellow bus ticket in Porto
    Do not buy this ticket - yellow bus service known to be slow, with limited services. Sadly, we found this out after purchasing ticket. Multiple blue and red buses went by the stops, but rarely did we see a yellow bus. In the 48 hours we had the ticket we got on a bus twice, resorting at times to catching the Metro or just giving up and walking. It is incorrect to call your service HOHO when the bus runs hourly, leaving customers stranded. Wifi? Non existent the two times we boarded. Guided commentary? Non existent the two times we boarded.

    Don’t waste your valuable time or $$ on this!! Much better options available !
    Total waste of time & money!! Commentary stopped after 5 stops..no announcements of which stop we were R what we were looking at, history etc..just a boring bus ride around Porto Not knowing what we were looking at… Did the boat tour next day even Worse NO commentary at all, no history, just a boat ride around the inner harbour.. We have done numerous hip on off bus tours in cities around the world and this was the worst one ever. Will definitely never use GRAYLINE again! Wrote to customer service to complain as there were 5 of us who paid almost a $150 euros for nothing!!

    If you are a tourist that wants to see Porto by walking trying to find bus stops, then book this tour.
    If you want a bus tour where there are 2 buses across all of Porto and you can’t find either of them - then book this tour. If you are a tourist that wants to see Porto by walking trying to find bus stops, then book this tour. If you want to pay for a bus tour and only take the bus twice in a 48 hour period because you can’t find another, even when it is scheduled to come to a stop that isn’t clearly marked, book this tour. If you want to wait for a bus that never comes and passes you via the live website supposedly tracking the bus, then book this tour. Regardless, if you are a fan of walking, hate taking the bus but love paying for transportation, then book this tour and maybe you will be satisfied. Also, if you want a semi-free port tour that you have to walk over a mile to from the bus stop book this tour. If you want to be dropped off across the river from where you are supposed to be taking your river cruise, and love walking across bridges and searching for not clearly marked river cruises, book this tour. If you love RARE buses, that you never see, are invisible when the pass you via the live tracking website, then book this tour. Grab you walking shoes, because it’s going to be a hike! Cheers and best of luck to you if you decide to book. Me and my husband made the best of it and bought a bottle and port ever time we got lost, that to say we had a great time in Porto, just not thanks to this tour.

    Wait a while and hop on bus tour
    Ideal introduction to the city and a economic way of getting around. Be aware however there appear to be only two buses on each route, so you can be waiting a while and the so called live bus location app is no use at all.

    Good package and a way to get a sense of the city
    Friend researcher the packages and you get 48 hours on the bus and then you can do the river cruise and the Port tasting. We did a full 2/24 circuit of the city on the bus. Or you could hop on and off though you need to be downstairs to press stop to get off. The cruise was pretty but not particularly informative. The surprise was the Calem Port house tasting which is really informative. They were not good value individually but were as a group.

    Regular experience
    I red in different blogs that the yellow bus was the best option on system hop on-hop off in Porto. I buyed 48 hrs + Duero's River Tour. I must the experience was very regular. The frequency of bus was poor and I saw in many opportunities that the red and blue buses were much better frequency. The traffic in Centre Porto is terrible also. So, I'd think before to decide the same option in the future.

I would give this zero stars if I could. I took the Yellow Bus vintage tour in Porto on Weds Aug 3rd, 2022, and it was easily the worst sightseeing bus operation I have ever encountered. There weren’t enough buses. We would see two or sometimes even THREE of the Blue buses and two of the Red buses while waiting for the yellow. And therefore the buses were jam packed, with people standing packed in the aisles and sitting on the steps. On the two buses where I had a seat and could use the awful headphones provided, the audio guide didn’t work. Of course if one is standing there is no possibility of trying to use it. Finally, we were to back on board our ship at 4:30pm. At 2:20pm I arrived at the stop near Sao Bento to head back, thinking I would have time to look around Leixsoes. Nope. At 3:08pm the bus finally arrived, when many of us had started looking at Uber and a couple people just paid the Blue bus and got on there. So we all jammed in to the bus and had a hot and very uncomfortable ride as those buses aren’t designed for standing and don’t have handles or grab bars. It was a miserable slow hot ride. I finally got back onboard the ship at 4:20pm, the closest I have ever come to being late back to a cruise ship. The Pride has left people in other cities so I have no doubt they would’ve left us too. I loved Porto. It was a fantastic city and I’d love to visit again. I will never do another Yellow Bus tour in this or any other city however. I am strongly considering filing a dispute with my credit card for this as I don’t feel that I got the experience advertised and paid for.

Dear Customer, Thank you for your several contacts and reviews, which had deserved our best attention. We are sorry that our service did not meet your best expectations, but on 3rd August, due to the cruise ship presence in the city, all sightseeing tours were under great pressure. After analysing your claims, we have verified that all our schedules were met on the day you have used. Our schedules are published in our website, and you have a QR code in the flyers to be easier to consult them locally - https://www.yellowbustours.com/en/porto/schedules. Regarding the example you have given, the bus Porto Castle tour(purple line) has as a frequency of 1h and the next departure after you arrive at the bus stop #1 (where you were waiting) was at 3.00pm (as you can see in the schedules). The bus has arrived to that stop with enough time to scan tickets before departure. Your ticket was scanned at 2.49pm. (11 minutes before the departure time). The time of arrival at the cruise terminal was as supposed, considering the traffic due to several works happening arround the city. Thank you for your attention. Best regards, Yellow Bus Team

The Castle tour was allright, but the historical tour was bad: the historical tour took several roads double. Several headphone accesses were broken, so you can’t sit everywere. Also some information in both tours were told the same. Sometimes information about buildings was told without seeing what building it was (the bus just drove on and did not slow or stop)
There was also a Port wine tasting included. We did not expect a waiter walk into the bus with wines presented, but some info where and how totally not appeared (!?)
And at least: in the conformation e-mail there was a photo of the map with the exact meeting start point of the bus. you guess: exactly, there was no bus stop! So we asked at the ‘red bus info’ and went to the start point and off course missed the bus and have to wait for 45mn…..
So we don’t know reviews of the red en grey busses but for sure: don’t use the Yellow!

Fix the audio. We sat in several seats, and could not hear through the headphones in any seat. We also saw other people trying to get theirs to work. The volume is so low that you can't hear what is being said unless the bus is not moving and you cram the earphone into your ear, which is quite painful. One main reason to ride a Hop On/Hop Off is for the commentary as you go along. Without that, this is just a waste of money.

We did the Porto Castles Tour. It's a 2 hour circuit. The reason it's 2 hours is that you're sitting at bus stops killing time, or else sitting in traffic.

I'll start by saying I never actually used the bus.

I booked a week before I went to Porto, I never actually saw any of the buses at the bus stops. I read the terms and conditions and I noticed I could request a refund within 2 weeks of booking.

I emailed asking for a refund a week after booking & I've heard nothing back, not even an acknowledgement. I've emailed 3 times and heard nothing, so they've taken my money for service I never used.

Why say you'll give a refund within 2 weeks of booking if you won't even acknowledge the email. Not good customer service

A great way to explore the city and get our bearings of the environment. We chose the Porto vintage tour and did a 24 hour ticket. We loved the historical tour and felt it gave a really good view of the city and surrounding areas/popular tourist traps. The castles tour was a little disappointing as there weren’t many castles and also a lot of the audio guide was the same as the historical tour. Overall a great way to see the city but wouldn’t recommend the castles tour.

Did the 2day ticket with calem cellars and 6 bridges boat trip included. Our day was most spent waiting around for buses for 40minutes every time. Gave up and walked across to porto instead. Although we managed to do the cellar and boat trip because of all the waiting we actually only did the first 4 stops on the bus. There was bus stops saying out of use (like the picture that was actually a working stop) and in random places completely off what the map says and the schedules say different times on website to the paper map. Overall an absolute waste of time and money.

Excellent value. Unlimited use of two bus routes with commentary and a very enjoyable and relaxing one-hour river cruise. Everything ran to schedule and the bus drivers were friendly and helpful. Good way for first-time visitors to discover this beautiful city. Recommnded

More busses needed. Queue to get on a bus at 11am was so long, it was clear that there was not going to be enough room for everyone. Saw multiple people give up attempting to get on. We were the last people allowed on the bus but ended up having to sit on the floor so after about 5 stops and no chance of us getting a seat we decided to get off. As the busses on both routes only come once an hour, if you miss one or can’t get on as it’s too busy, it’s too long to wait for the next one. Busses later on about 4pm had more room.

Awful tour, not worth the money AT ALL. No indication of when the buses will show up. Utterly terrible, lazy, minimal narration - probably about 90% of the time you're forced to listen to dreadful 'hold' music, then the narrator occasionally speaks one or two sentences in such an accented voice that by the time you've managed to tune in and roughly figure out what she's saying, she's stopped and the hold music is back on. And quite often we couldn't figure out which building she was talking about anyway. We learned nothing whatsoever useful about Porto. The only thing she talked at any length about was repeated twice, about the festival in June. Gutted to have paid 44 euros when a normal bus would have done the job for a tenth of the price and much less frustration.
Also, a tourist office told us that the so-called free 'wine cellar' tours are not for any of the official wine cellars, just normal bars where they will give you the hard sell to buy port. A complete rip-off!!!

I enjoyed everything about this tour. I purchased the two day hop on and hop off with cruise on Douro river, and Porto wine cellars tour included. It was the best way to see Porto and all the most important sights. The Douro Cruise was one of my most favorite parts of my trip. The drivers were informative, and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I also loved the music on the bus in between sights. It was a very pleasurable experience. I would recommend.
