What people are saying about Liberdade Square
We joined both the red and blue tours of the city, which provided us with two very different views of the city. Having used hop on/hop off tours many times, we have found these the best way to experience a new city. With Porto being hilly, this was particularly helpful, some of them could be avoided ! Our plan is to go round the entire route once, and select stop (s) to hop off on the second time around, on both routes we noted places of interest which we subsequently stopped. The buses on both routes run every 1/2 hour, waiting time was acceptable. However, one dissapointment would be that no announcement was made by the driver (s) of an up and coming bus stop. Maps are provided, however, when you are visiting a new destination, I believe this would improve the tour.
Since I arrived by train, getting to the right spot to exchange the voucher wasn't so easy. Also make sure, that the Info-Point at Sé has the right address on Google Maps! The transportation card is good, though I had trouble with the machine-reading sometimes. But the staff was very helpful! I used a lot of the discounts, but for some the Andante card might be enough, if they don't know what to visit yet. With the attractions the card could stand to up their offers...compared to other cities the offers so far are really slim.
I always use city cards. This one allowed free public transport ...just tap your card. And 2$ each off every site we visited. It is worth it financially but also not having to juggle money at each metro or tram. So there is a safety factor also that makes the card a great choice. You can sometimes skip the line too.
As we had no printer and couldn’t print out ticket it was hard for the driver to prove that we had purchased the ticket. He had to email our transactions to the office to have them approve them. It would have been better to have ticket to show in the phone.
Nice opportunity to travel through the city if you're staying in Porto not for so long. I've got discounts as well as free entries to the museums, and the public transport ticket of course.
