Full description

Explore the picturesque and historic city of Porto at your leisure with a ticket that gives you access to 2 sightseeing bus tours. Hop on and hop off in areas like Santa Catarina and Batalha. Sample wines at the Calém Wine Cellars and sail on the Douro River on a cruise.

Located in the north of Portugal, the city of Porto has a rich history that dates to the Roman occupation of Iberia. This is a notable port city, situated on the estuary of the Douro River, where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean. You can also hop off the bus in the city’s oldest district, Ribeira, to enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch in a quaint café nestled along the city’s medieval walls and discover Porto’s famous wines. Your ticket gives you access to the cellars of Cales Calém, where top quality port wines have been produced since 1859. You can also sample some of the goods, including white, dry and ruby ports. Once you have seen Porto on dry land, you can take the Douro River Cruise to see it from the water. This is included as part of your tour package and gives you a chance to admire the city from a comfortable river cruiser as you drift down the Douro under 6 of the city’s bridges.

Worth the cost. Great way to see the city on your first day and orient yourself. As other people mentioned, some of the audio things don’t work in which case you would have to move. Travelled in October so low season and moving seats was feasible. If traveling in high season this could be a problem. The sightseeing Portugal and the blue buses looked newer.

Enjoyed the wine cellar tour and sampling and the river boat tour. The hop on and off bus frequency at the stops was not good as we had to wait around 45 minutes for the bus at each stop. This is due to the fact that the yellow bus company only has 2 buses in the route. May be better off taking the other hop on hop Off service.

The bus and boat tours were very informative. A lot of the headphone jacks on the bus weren't working, so it took a bit of jumping around to find ones that worked Unfortunately the wine tours were so packed we couldn't reserve a time during our only free day. Overall I would recommend. It's a great way to understand what the city has to offer!
