What people are saying about Avenida dos Aliados

We joined the bike tour on our first morning in Porto and it provided an excellent orientation of the city. The electric bikes worked really well and coped well with the many hills. Our guide, Eduarda, was very friendly and informative. She allowed time at the key sights and viewpoints.

This tour bus, cruise and winery package was perfect for organizing on my own. I had some doubts about the bus and I asked at one of the YellowBus kiosks and the one who attended us was very kind and decisive, one hundred percent recommended.

Just our favorite activity in Porto! Federico was wonderful and explained everything we needed to know about the main places. Usual guides are not so concerned about giving all the info. Thanks again so much and see you soon!

Excellent value. The castles line of the hop on hop off tour isn’t as great but all in all we enjoyed this package and it’s a great way to see Porto.

Great way to see the city from the water and all the beautiful bridges. Highly recommend!
