Have used yellow bus in Lisbon on two trips and it was great, very disappointed in Oporto. Struggled to hear the commentary even with it turned up, sometimes it did not match what you could see, would go past some interesting looking buildings and there would be no commentary. Worst of all was the music when there was no commentary, (was a lot) the same 2 tracks over and over again.

At 12 euros it's tough to knock the value - my two friends and I saw all the key sights but had to rely on one of us giving sound commentary from the one jack on the upper deck that to be working. Not great. Suggest that you try another tour if knowing what you are looking at is important to you.

My wife and I arrived in Porto in unusually hot weather for mid-September. We wanted a good overview of the city and its suburbs, but without trudging around in the heat. We bought tickets at 22 euro each; the tickets (valid on the day of purchase and the following day) covered both routes plus the 6 bridges river cruise, plus a tasting and tour at a well known wine cellar. The audio equipment is a bit tempermental but the English commentary is good. The tickets allowed us free transport on the whole STCP network and we also got a book of discount vouchers (valid for 6 months) to be used around Porto.

It is true that the buses are not that frequent, but the free transport on the local bus network compensates for this. The bus drivers were pleasant and on two occasions noticed us close to, but not actually at, official stops and called us to get on rather than leaving us to wait another hour. Had the buses been more frequent I would be happy to give 5/5

This hop on/off tourist bus is a great low cost way of getting to know Oporto. Buses are clean and offer a headset audio tour in various languages. Plenty of info is given. Services are frequent and pass by most of the notable buildings and monuments. One must see, hop off, is the interior of the railway station. Quite remarkable blue and white tiled wall murals are really worth a look. Can thoroughly recommend this tour. Another option could be the Red Line bus which does a similar tour.

To get an overview of the town of Porto, I agree, it's the best way. Until now, the bus of Porto is the best I attended the last years. The comments are appropriate and understandable (I tested German, French and English and it was perfect). The frequency of the Pink line (Porto classico) is OK (more or less each 15 minutes), But the Orange line is really not to be recommended, because you may wait 1 hour, or even 2 (I had both cases) to hop on the next one. Impossible to hop off more than one time on the Orange line. This line is OK to hop off at the sea and hop on the last one to come back to the town. Only for this purpose, taking the bus No 200 to the Cheese castle would be a cheaper and better option.
