5 euros per person, one way, was maybe a bit expensive. But it also came with a free wine tasting nearby, so that was value added. We went and had our tasting, and then took the brief gondola up to the top and walked back down. A nice way to spend an hour in Porto. Fun, but definitely not a... More

If you don't want to walk back up, then pay for this. Otherwise, it doesn't see anything that you can't from the bridge.

Nice to see the city from above. You can go down through the city and then take it to go up again and cross the river. I bought the photo they sell because I was with my son, but it is not worth it. It cost 5,00 euros.

And get a great view plus vouchers for a free port tasting. It's a good way to get up to the top of the bridge without having a long climb.

The views were great. But there are so many places to get great views in Porto for free. 5 euro a trip per person!! It took virtually no time, and whilst the free glass of Port at a nearby cellar afforded by our ticket was much appreciated, we opted to only use the service once, tackling the moderately lengthy walk...

At €5 for a short one way trip it is expensive but preferable to walking up the hill after Port tasting.

I got a package including a cruise but otherwise it is 5€ for a few minutes of teleferic. If you're old and rich do it to avoid walking stairs otherwise there is no interest as you can get better views of Porto in several other places for free like on the bridge.

Made in Switzerland so no worries :). Short trip up, pretty expensive for Porto-standards only delivering some nice views.

While the telefonico ride itself is not something to write home about (and is expensive by local standards) the view from the top is. As you walk out grab a porto soda at the tiny stand on the pedestrian square and find a spot where to sit listening to the musicians/ buskers and admiring the view. Worth the ride up!

It does not cost much and you can see beautifully, you will make nice photos. Pictures speak for themselves.
