Make your way to the historic center of Coimbra, where you can present this voucher for tickets on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour of the city. The entire route takes one hour from start to finish, but with buses every hour, you can stop to explore the places that interest you most.
If desired, take this time to visit some of Coimbra’s municipal museums: your tickets include admission to the Edifício Chiado, with contemporary art and exhibits, and the Torre de Almedina, a history museum that’s hidden in a medieval tour.
The first stop on the bus tour route is where you’ll meet a boat for the cruise on the Mondego River. Find a comfortable seat on deck as you pass some of the city’s key sites, including the Santa Clara Bridge, the Açude Bridge, Concert Park, and Lapa dos Esteios, a garden set at the edge of the river. You’ll also see the modern Rainha Santa Isabel Bridge, Quinta das Varandas, and Bentos Island. Following the cruise, you can meet back up with the bus, and keep exploring Coimbra for as long as you want.

Worked, but barely

The yellow bus worked as expected, but only comes once every 90 minutes, and you never know what time it last came. Fortunately, Coimbra is a small place if you want to walk. Unfortunately, if you miss the bus, you probably have a lot of uphill walking to do. The bigger problem was the cruise. The sign they have up indicates that the 4pm cruise is the only one scheduled anymore (contrary to the information in the yellow bus pamphlet). Asking around in town, we found that the cruise does have other times, but only if enough people show up for it (we were told 6). This seems unlikely since the sign says the other cruises don't run. Effectively you have to just keep showing up each hour until there are enough people (or take the 4pm which always runs). We tried for the 3PM cruise and were then told that it was actually 10 people, and none of them could be the combined ticket holders (yellow bus and cruise - like us). They all had to purchase their tickets directly from the cruise line. We got lucky and at the last minute enough people showed up for the 3pm cruise to go. We planned our return train to Porto based on the schedule in the Yellowbus booklet. If it hadn't, we would have not been able to make it.
