This bus tour was the perfect way to visit the city in two days! Here is what we did:

The first day, we took the purple bus route from Praça da Batalha which is at the top of Rua de Santa Catarina, the main shopping street to Castelo do Quejo/SEA Life Porto 22 stop. It's a great bus route: it first goes through the city and its landmarks and then along the ocean shore from which you can see boats, fisheries, Matosinhos beach, etc.. We visited Castelo do Quejo for 2 Euros and afterwards, we walked south along the seashore. We stopped at a small restaurant by the ocean. The view was amazing. Then, we caught the orange line from stop 16 Pérgula da Foz which is right before the Fort. We rode up to the Ribeira, the main tourist area. From there, we did the river cruise along the Douro River which was included in the package. You can take many photos of the bridges from the boat. We then had dinner at a restaurant at the Ribeira.

The second day, we walked down to the Calém Port Wine Cellar and visited the cellar for free it is part of the package. There, we got to taste some white and some red port! We then took the orange bus route from 23 Gaia Quay and visited the other side of the city. This part is more residential, but there are a few museums to visit along to way if you are inclined to. We took the bus all the way to Praça da Batalha stop 4, and spent the rest of the afternoon visiting shops and small restaurants.

The Porto Hop-on-Hop off tour with river cruise and wine tasting was one thing we needed to do to see all of Porto. The hop-on-hop of bus was a great way to see all the sights and even some of the coastal towns. The highlight was the wine tasting at Calem, one of the oldest Port wineries in the region. We had a full guided tour of the facility which was followed by a river cruise at sunset. All in all a perfect day!
