“take it .”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

From Av. Diogo Leite we wanted to get back to to the upper deck of the Luis bridge (see separate review) in order to take the train from Metro Morro station to Casa Da Musica .
We bought tickets for the Funicular . The tickets included a promotional pass for Port wine tasting at the neighboring Quevedo Port Wine Cellars so before mounting the funicular we added a taste of Port Wine to our short journey in the sky .The ride itself is very short , unfolding a spectacular panorama infront of you while you let your legs muscles rest a bit .
Take the ride .

“Respite from stairs”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

After walking all day, and tasting a few Ports across the river, it was nice to not have to climb a hill. It was in a good location if one is coming over the bridge and puts you in an ok location on top. Not as fun as the old ones in Lisbon.

“EUR2 each way”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Worth a visit. You get good views of the Ponta Luis opposite for photographs and it's cheaper than taking the steps if you factor in the cost of refreshments after the climb! Handy for the Station. Takes two or three minutes.

“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.
