Just the convenience that you can simply travel through Porto without having to buy a separate ticket every time, the Portocard is definitely worth it. Are you very agile and you are in the center you could omit the Andante card. But we did make good use of it because there are quite a lot of steep streets with quite large differences in height and I have problems with one leg from there, and then you can walk up and back a bit by bus or metro if you want.

I bought a 4 day Porto card. It was excellent for using oublic transport, visit museums. For me the pnly problem was the pick up point, it was near the Carhedral Sé, almosr 5 km ftom my stay.

Really great guide and a small group size. I liked that all the places were hidden and unassuming but delicious

So easy to use, loved the free transport and went to so many museums and sites for cheap!

Easy to find and book, collection was straight forward and overall good value for money
