Definitely worth it! We picked our cards up at the airport which was very convenient. We didn't use our cards a ton for the public transportation portion, but it was great to have for all the extras that come with the card - such as discounts for tours, access to tourist sites, etc.

It was a very enjoyable visit. The card is excellent because it gives us unlimited access to transportation as well as a discount on visiting tourist places in the city.

It worked great, no waiting times and definitely makes it easier to use public transport in Porto.

At the airport in Porto, for information, very good service, helpful, can recommend the service.

Muito conveniente para passear livremente pelo Porto!
