It was an amazing trip in Porto. The bus tour covered all the major attractions. I also had the opportunity to taste wine and take a river cruise, which were worth the extra price I paid. I would recommend Viator trip to anyone who wants to make the most of their time.

The package of bus, boat and wine tasting trip was brilliant, both from an educational/cultural perspective but also in terms of value. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed the package and would recommend this particular trip option as well worth getting. Porto is a beautiful city and the package we purchased allowed us to see as much as we needed. In fact we could have seen even more if it wasn't for beer and port!
