Long wait for bus
Melanie_P

Waited over an hour for the yellow bus. Red and Blue buses were much more frequent in Porto. Many seat headphone connections were not working as well.

Viator gave the wrong QR code and ruined our trip
Darlene_K
, Jul 2022
Viator gave the wrong QR code and they wouldn’t allow us on the bus. It took all morning to fix. Viator took no responsibility an$ gave us a second incorrect QR code. Take the blu bus or red bus by other companies. The yellow bus only comes once an hour to each stop. Too much waiting.

Use the Red buses, not Yellow.

Use the Red Ho Ho buses… more of them than the Yellow. Watched multiple Red come and go (1.5 hours) before a Yellow and it wasn’t really the circle we wanted to do.

Highly recommend!

On and off buses are an excellent way to see a city. I used them in both Porto and Lisbon, Portugal. I injured my knee before my trip so it was a great way to get around and see things without having to do a lot of walking. River tour in Porto was a lovely added bonus.

Great Tour in Porto and Gaia

Great Tour in Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. Love the boat trip in Douro. The histórica buildings in Porto City are beautiful. Enjoy the Matosinhos beach.

Basic
James_S
, Jun 2022
Headphone sockets snapped off so some seats were not able to have the audio experience which was basic and short, accompanying music very basic. Some one had brought on dog crap and it was smeared and smelly, the whole but could have done with a facelift, tired and not very well presented. Driver very good.

Port tasting

Really enjoyed the Port tasting at Calem. Our guide Tiago was great. However figuring out where and when to meet/start wasn’t that obvious. And our purple line driver wasn’t very welcoming.

À few stops were closed or not available. And the driver was not keen on telling people. The descriptions by the audio guide could be better.

The 48hr ticket is just right to allow for the Historical & Castle tours plus the river trip & wine tasting. Definitely recommend this tour.

Mostly good
Emma_W

Two routes overall that are similar in some parts. The historic tour takes you over the bridge to the other island which is great and a sight to see! Bus timetable wasn’t provided before hand meaning we were stood at the stop for an hour before a bus came on our first day. Buses are old and lots of the speakers didn’t work. Our ticket, which we booked before leaving stated we had a free wine tasting trip on a river cruise, but there was no indication or instruction of how to do this- we did book through Viator so I wonder if this is why. We had to pay an extra £15 for the river tour. Overall, was brilliant in terms of seeing the city and was easy to navigate once you got your head around it.

Not very impressed with this bus tour. No timetable was stuck to so you take a risk when you hop-off of not getting back on again. The commentary was seriously lacking

Yellow Bus is the worst- pick anyone else!

At two different stops an hour and half wait for a bus! We ended up walking- so disappointed in yellow bus. Tried to contact office - no one available to help. NEVER AGAIN

Don't wait for the bus!
Eric_J
, Sep 2021
Don't get the idea you can "hop-on-hop-off" so easily--we waited over an hour for the bus at one stop. We booked online and didn't notice we could download a brochure/map so were confused about how to find the stops, but we should attribute that to our own stupidity. Otherwise the tour, boat ride and porto cellar tour and tasting were great!

Wrong ticket

I bought this ticket by accident as I wanted the red or blue bus. I emailed right away to change it and no one responded. Not a good experience.

Perfect way to get to know the city

Perfect introduction so u get a quick overview of the City. I highly recommend booking the boat cruise and the wine tasting. Definitely worth it if u spend 2 or 3 days and u want to make the most of it!

Awful, unsafe.
MariaLuisa_R
, Aug 2021
Never again will I take a Viator tour. Bus did not enforce social distancing; during the River cruise the boat operator didn’t turn on the air conditioning inside, even after I asked as it was sweltering inside, we did not wish to sit outside because it was too sunny and I have sensitive skin. Outside there were people sitting all over the exit stairs which is against safety regulations worldwide. We had the 2 day hop-on/hop-off bus and only used it one time, we didn’t want to get COVID from strangers sitting on top of us. While the operators are not at fault for people ignoring safety regulations, they are completely at fault for not enforcing the rules they claim to follow.

Reduced Service

Good tour but be aware they are not running as regularly as normal. Their map says their buses run every 30 minutes, but the purple route runs every hour, the orange one every 45 minutes. I think all tour buses are running similar schedules, but I wish I’d known.
