Totally worth it! Very easy to use and super mich to see. Just get the voucher online, get the ticket from the bus driver and drive around two days. On the first day I did the two bus tours - one for the old town and the one that goes along the coast line. Was very nice & the audio guide gave a lot of information on history and culture. Also very easy to do the boat tour. Just go to the Cais da Estiva & show your ticket. For the wine tasting just call them in the morning when you want to visit them & show the ticket there. Was super easy, very nice :)

Incredible value for money!! The bus ticket lasts for 24 hours (maybe 48 we weren’t sure) so we managed to do both bus tours on separate days which was great! Get your bus ticket first then hold onto it as it’s your ticket for everything. We didn’t prebook for Calem but turned up and they had availability - note: the email address sent to book the tour didn’t work so might be worth calling to prebook

Great, we always take the bus, the only way to see more in a city when you have a few days. In spite of some reviews that had worried us, everything went very well, the boat and the tour to the Calem cellars were also excellent.

Had a great time even if they were remodeling the stadium. You have a kit to see and the store after the tour was great!

Really very interesting tour and great fado show including tasting. Perfect entertainment for a rainy day in Porto.
