No indication on ticket, no one told us, but busses are blue and labeled under Grey Line. We let two pass, as even a driver gave us a wrong indication. Really frustrating when you are only one day in Porto. Do not chose the German...More

This has been the worst hop on hop off bus tour we have ever experienced. Right from the start the man in the office made us wait whilst the portugese speaking couples in front of us took 20 mins to ask questions and download an...More

If you end up taking this blue bus (there is also yellow and red bus), then opt to pay an extra 3€ for the 50 minute 6 bridges river cruise. Bus only is 15€. We made a mistake and paid 15€ for the 6 Bridges...More

Tourist information office booked us on this one because they could quickly verify our service dog would be accepted without problems, while the Yellow/Red Bus couldn't get an answer for 2 days. That's the good part. The tour itself was ridiculously scant in the information...More

Good points: Value for money (We paid 25 euro for 48 hours on this bus plus a 50 min bout tour and a wine porto cave tour), it covers pretty much everything you want to see in the city including the coast and the buses...More

The blue tour gave a quick overview of this extremely nice city. It took almost two hours with some stunning views from the bridges.

Where do I even start? First of all, it's impossible to find the stops because the online and physical map doesn't show where the stops actually are. So far we've basically walked everywhere because we couldn't find any stops. We managed to use the bus...More

As in common with others bus tours, the "BLUE" sightseeing tour suffers a bit from outside factors, such as roadworks, traffic congestion, and the occasional diversion. This tour suited us , and its inclusion of Foz is a real bonus. The commentary was a little...More

Currently sitting on the bus, it hasn't moved in about 20 minutes. Waiting on 2-3 passengers from another bus to be dropped off. Is that not why it's every 30 mins!!!! We waited about 45 mins at a stop this am. It is subject to...More
