Totally worth it! Very easy to use and super mich to see. Just get the voucher online, get the ticket from the bus driver and drive around two days. On the first day I did the two bus tours - one for the old town and the one that goes along the coast line. Was very nice & the audio guide gave a lot of information on history and culture. Also very easy to do the boat tour. Just go to the Cais da Estiva & show your ticket. For the wine tasting just call them in the morning when you want to visit them & show the ticket there. Was super easy, very nice :)

This boat experience was absolutely amazing. Ricardo is an incredible guide showing us some of the most beautiful scenes of Porto. We were offered wine and snacks which was a bonus. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

Our tour with Maria to Aveiro was great she was very outgoing and personable making for a really fun excursion. Thanks!

Pleasant experience, the staff is friendly and considerate, it worths every cent we spent.

Great place to visit. Good trip for my last day in Portugal.
