This cost 13 Euros and is pretty run of the mill. It does give you an overview of the city though and you can get an idea of the location of any museums or churches you want to see.

Apart from the first third of the journey there is little to recommend this. Unfortunately, the remaining 40 minutes is spent on a tour of the outlying areas of town with little to see other than rundown neighbourhoods and businesses. The circuit should be shortened...More

We took this tour on the last day of our 4 days in Coimbra - most of the tour goes past recent and 20th Century office and apartment blocks. Really boring - take a walking tour they are 100% more interesting.

For all of 12 euros, I found this one hour tour to be extremely flaccid. There just wasn't enough substance or points of interest. To me this tour was just a waste of money.More

This is a great way of seeing the city, and listening to the narration of places of interest. Wasn't very impressed when it went through the modern area of the city. Just apartments and a shopping centre.
