Got the 2day with boat tour special. What looked like good value wasn't. Audio not working and driver couldn't have cared less. I suggest you try the yellow or blur tour competition.

I used this to get to the beach and sealife centre. Good reliable service and drivers. Cost was 15 euros for the day. Worth it if you wanna spend the day in the city to stop off and look around.

If you have little time in this beautiful city, take the 2 hour sightseeing tour on any of the several companies that offer it. You will have a good idea on where to focus your more detailed excursion.

The other reviews say it all. Hardly any commentary, don’t announce stops, many sound attachments not working. Commentary of 6 bridge cruise only in Portuguese. Avoid the red bus.

We always do a hop on bus when in a new city. It gives you the overview of the city with a small ticket price. You can get off and on whenever you like. Our earphones worked wherever we sat. I did have a difficult...More
