“Great way to discover the city”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We spend 3 days in Porto and booked a two day Yellow Bus tour. With the bus tour you also get one river boat tour and one Port vine cave tour with it. They provide 3 different routes (The Historical, the Bridge and the Castle tour). In addition you have also free access to the STCP buses (public transport buses round the city).each tour is audio guided in 8 languages. It is really very good value for money. During the time using the ticket you can get off and jump back on at any stop of the bus. Also you get discounts on tickets to monuments, museums and leisure activities.
Best way to explore the city!

“Too long waiting time”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Polite and helpful English speaking drivers. The routes are good. However the waiting time is too long. According to the timetable the bus is coming every 45 min (orange line) and every 60 min (purple line) but they do not keep their rules referring to „technical problems”. You never know if you should wait 5 or 60 min for the next bus. Therefore staying on the bus is the best and after the tour walking back or taking a taxi to the sights otherwise you lose a lot of time. The other problem is the audio device. Some of them are not working at all so you have to change your seat. The commentary is inaudible with the background noise of the bus as well as other people.

“Excellent way to see the city, makes getting around easy”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Do the tour that includes the boat cruise, saves a few euros and was a nice interlude in the tour. Callem port house included in the tour is very touristy, would recommend trying another one as well as this place

“Worst experience in Porto”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Bus every hour and sometimes 1h and a half : you should never stop anywhere. But i think you should never take this bus and prefer a taxi.

“great way to see the city”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The yellow bus tour provided a great way to see the city and decide where to go from there. The cost was fair, although I would likely not do the boat tour or port tour again. The boat tour was mostly a repeat of things we had already learned on the bus tour from a different angle. The port tour, while great would be easy to arrange on your own and you can then choose any port lodge.
