About the tour

Imagine yourself on the top of the hill, overlooking the magnificent view of the ancient city of Porto and the river Douro. The absolute best view possible, for you to take some amazing postcards. Then, entering the new Cable Car, and slowly descending, comfortably seated, the steep hill, above the rooftops of centennial Port Wine Cellars, while enjoying the scenery around you of the river and the city. No need to be afraid of heights, I'll be doing it for you! Arriving at the docking area of the river cruise ships, it will be time to decide: shall we go back up and do it all over again?!

Brilliant tour. I have a read of heights, so perfect for me to let someone else do it for me. Lovely views and a treat of local market traders waiting for us.
