Really enjoyed this fascinating place. Would recommend the Douro river cruise, and the port tasting.Wear comfortable shoes as many of the streets are cobbled.

Took shuttle into Porto. Very interesting walk down the hill, then took tuktuk up again to Cathedral (great views) and railway station. This is a must see station.

A very attractive city. Good architecture, lots of shops, good range of goods. A lot of history to take in.

Leixoes is a pleasant but provincial town on the coast of Portugal. Had the weather been kind I've no doubt we would have enjoyed the town a lot more, especially after two days at sea crossing the Bay of Biscay! Unfortunately, it rained heavily during the morning and by the time we were due to leave the weather was only just fairing up. However, we visited the local shops and had a very pleasant coffee and cake on the main street. Oporto is some way from Leixoes and easily accessible by Metro but since our time was limited and we'd been before we didn't go there. Read Less

Loved this place. Would never have visited here, but it was so pretty. Loads of narrow windy streets, full of bars and boutique hotels. All lead to a beautiful river side. Lovely buildings now used for bars and restauarants, all reasonably priced. Take a river cruise to learn a bit of history and see the view, €12. We will return here on our own for a long weekend. Options seemed to be a) get the port bus, which takes you out the commercial port. Then, I assume, get a taxi bus or metro into centre. B) take the free shuttle which lasts about 35 minutes into town. This was easy enough after a 20 minute wait outwards. No queue coming back around 45 minutes before the last bus, which runs back every 15 minutes. Read Less

We were impressed with Porto as we had a great walk about and ended at one of the best beaches we have ever seen. It is clean and inviting, but unfortunately it was not possible to get on the beach with wheelchairs or such, but we did visit a café that had access and nearly on the beach. Bad lemonade ! Read Less

We took the free shuttle bus and Oporto is beautiful. My favourite port on the cruise . Easy to navigate and some beautiful churches to visit. If you struggle with walking you may want to take a tour as it is quite hilly and on a hot day getting up those hills is hard work even when you are a mobile 40 something! Read Less

Our favourite stop on this cruise, picked up the coach after an hours wait which gave us chance to take a look around the nearby beach, very clean. We got onto the pre arranged (in Vigo) our tours4cruisers bus, again a brilliant commentary, smooth ride around tight roads. A very interesting city seen during three stops. €15 a head, we saw enough to convince us that a return visit would be worthwhile Read Less
