Portocard is worth it if you also want to visit museums and other sights that charge admission. The discount is limited. But I really enjoyed the ease of using public transport, don't think about it... just hold up to the scanner and it beeps. It couldn't be easier. Even though I didn't really take the metro much.

The show was incredible. Fun, unique location in a historic church added to the drama. Was just long enough to have time for other things to do. Well worth the affordable price. Took advice of other reviewer about lying down to view show.

It was a great tour with lots of sites seen and our guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Taking the Tuk Tuk was a great way to see the city.

Porto is an amazing place to visit and getting around on the electric bike is the very best way to enjoy it.

Outstanding. A real highlight of our trip to Porto.
