You can take this cable car either way. I took it down and had the car to myself. It's a very smooth ride and descends relatively slowly so you have the time to take in the sights. Slightly expensive when you consider how cheap it is to get around Porto on other modes of transport but this is something a bit different.

The reason to take this cable car either up or down is to save some time (and rest your feet!) in getting from one side of Gaia to the other. It's however not well-suited for taking photos as the plexiglass windows will blur any shots. Just sit back and enjoy the rather short ride.

Your photo is taken while departing and offered on the other side in a booklet which includes three bookmarks, all for €10.

The cable car is a lovely, if brief, way to see the city. We got it from the top of the bridge down to the river side near the wine cellars then walked back to the lower tier of the bridge via the churro and granolita stall! Superb views obviously, and a fun trip. It’s currently 6 euro one way and 9 return. Children are only children if under 12. They take a photo when you get on and you can purchase for 10E at the other end.

After walking across the Dom Luis bridge, this is a great way to go down to the river front. There are plenty of cable cars and so there is barely a wait for a car. The trip shows all the incredibly scenic views if the Douro River and offers great photos
For such a short trip, 6E for a one way ticket is pretty steep.

Okay so It's very expensive, €6 one way for a trip that barely takes 3 minutes, €9 return. Still though, the views are stupendous, they really are. You get to see Gaia, Porto and the Douro from an angle you wont get anywhere else!
When you get off at the top take your time as the views from the station are among the best in the city.
Best way to enjoy the cable car in my opinion is walk along the Gaia waterfront, take the cablecar to the top. Not sure I'd bother with a return ticket, you are better off walking across the Dom Luiz Bridge from the upper station.

We walked down by the steps which took us along the back streets toward the lower level of bridge. Crossing the bridge to the other side we had a leisurely walk along the Duoro before having a coffee and cake. Porto is a fabulous city, so different to Lisbon but equally photogenic. We decided to take the canle car, a first for us, and I was pleased we did, although only a short ride you can take plenty of photos. A single journey cost €6 and return €9

The cable railway is a great and fast way to get up the hill. It is a bit overpriced as you pay 9€ for two ways. It is recommended to take a one way ticket and cross the bridge afterwards right to Porto city center.

We would normally walk from Hilton Hotel then take the lower deck of Dom Luis Bridge but on our last day in Porto, we decided to take the cable car one way. It was a great experience as the views were fantastic and it was obviously faster to reach the top. It leads to the upper deck of Dom Luis Bridge which gives you quicker access to the Old Town.

We visited in early March, Portugal had introduced emergency measures relating to Covid – 19.
We enjoyed this quick trip on the cable car which gives good views of Porto. It is fast and efficient. The staff were friendly and helpful, and happy to help with the less able visitors.
On a further note, we would like to wish all the staff our best wishes with the current Covid -19 emergency measures. Thank you for your good service, we hope you and your families keep safe.

Very cool experience to take the cable car from lower to upper Gaia (or vice versa). We would have walked but were caught in the rain while visiting Porto and had a real treat riding the cable car & getting a birds' eye view of the River and Dom Luis bridge. Recommend this activity in the rain and in the sun.
