What people are saying about Palacio da Bolsa

Porto card is fantastic to have. There are no issues whatsoever with acceptance, all the attractions that I visited instantly recognized the card in my hand. I got great value from holding this card and will purchase it again the next time I visit Porto. Note that at least at the pickup kiosk in the airport, they require you to purchase the card online, they do not sell it at the kiosk. So order ahead to save yourself time upon arrival.
