Nice way to get down to the harbour but its a quick trip and not cheap. Worth doing if its a nice day and it's a quick way to get down to investigate the Vila Nova de Gaia area.

This removes the need to walk up or down a steep hill between the waterfront and the top level of the Dom Luis Bridge and the Mosteiro da Serra de Pilar.The ticket price included a free port tasting!

The teleférico is a good experience for the all family. It allows you to get to see places from a different perspective. It's a highlight moment with small kids in a trip.

At 6 euros for a ride of only a few minutes, it's not that cheap but a great view at the top over both sides of the Douro, so well worth the trip!

Only 5 minutes, about 6 Euros one way, great views, and in my humble opinion well worth doing. The gondolas each seat 6 people but are more comfortable with 4, as we were. Didn't buy the photo, although at 5 Euros it wasn't the normal...More

I'm not a fan of heights, but I can vouch and say that it was well worth the ticket. The views from the cable car are truly amazing-

Absolutely. Various routes for walking down to the riverbank, if you head away first you can go to a port warehouse such as Taylors. Otherwise, why not enjoy the views walking over the upper level of the bridge (going across... More

We will be in Porto November 5-7 after completing a Douro River Cruise. Will the Teleferico still be running that late in the year?
