“Some people have no sense of fun”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Ignore all the "it's too expensive for what it is" and "save your pennies and walk" comments - these reviewers clearly do this sort of thing every day. If the prospect of a wonderful and fun trip for very little money is your cup of tea, enjoy the Funicular dos Guindais!

It's a very short ride - only a few minutes - but is a nice way to take in the beautiful views. Take your camera and happy snapping!

2 euros for a one way trip. Highly recommended.

“Save your breath and check the view”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Take a ride up the hill and cross the bridge to Gaia on the other side of the river. There you take the tele-cabin down the river side where all restaurantes and Port caves are located. Go lunch and drink a glass of Vintage Port.
Come back to Porto by the old bridge and walk alongside the river to the Ribeira area.
You will spend a few hours delighted at the views, food and wine.
What a great city.

“The best way to spend 1.80€ and spare your legs”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

An elegant modern way to climb up to the Cathedral from the riverside. Wide windows give you an open view to different sites of the city. Enjoy it both ways

“Good fun and functional”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

It's in the great tradition of funiculars. It's functional and gets you up a mighty great hill. And, the view is fantastic. This funicular has been modernised and operates better than most. Recommended. Don't hesitate.
