The cable ride is a bit on the expensive side for how short the ride is. But the panoramic view of the area from the gondola ride is truly incredible.

Good views on route and very quick. The ticket does come with free port tasting Purchase the return ticket if you intend to return on this as you will save money

We had limited time to get from one area in Porto to another, and it had started to rain. We decided to take the teleferico. Perhaps silly, but it was fun! Nice views and a quick way to cover a lot of ground. Enjoy!

We took this cable car from the port up to the bridge. It is a lovely view and a quick way to get to the bridge to walk over to Porto

The ride was fun and offered some great views! A bit overpriced, but we got a free tasting of porto with the ticket, so no complaints!

Nothing special, and quite quick. Good views. At the time I felt it was quite expensive for what you get (?€6 each way )

It is a short but enjoyable ride from Cais de Gaia ( quayside) to the Jardim do Morro. Great views both over the river Douro to Riberia, and the Porto skyline, as well as south over the old warehouse and Port lodges. Taking the Teleferico...More
