The bus it self is already an event. Do first the South Line, with no stops, and then go for the Historical Line, where you can hop on and off as many times ou wish during the day.

The tour started just fine, on sunny day from city centre Porto Alegre. The recorded narration was audible and the timing was right for the sights, as we passed by. As allowed, we hopped off the bus to see an art gallery, noting when the next bus would pass by, to hop back on. But when the bus came, it... More

I took both the Historic and the South tour in a day ! The staff is very courteous and helpful and speaks English very well. However, the English language support was only available in the Historic Tour and the South Tour is only in Portuguese. But, this is a must watch. In fact, if you go at the 1st Sunday... More

We sat on the top of the bus, and simply enjoyed the ride. There are a lot of interesting buildings, and this is a fun and efficient way to see a lot in just a couple of hours. The English version of the tour (available with a headset, but only if you request it -- we didn't even initially realize... More

This is a great way to see the landmarks and neighbourhoods of Porto Alegre. We sat on the top level of the bus and were able to take photos as we went along. The commentary was helpful to explain different points of interest and was provided in both English and Portuguese.

If you want to know in a quick way some of the most characteristic places in town then this bus would be the best way. There are two tours, the downtown and the south tour. If you can take both and you will be amazed. The buses are double decked and the second floor in uncovered. Try to sit in... More

Double decker bus tour with stops at the most important sights in town. There are actually 2 lines, one inside the city and one which covers various sights out of town. Hop-on / hop-off service. Well organized and clean.

This is a MUST DO!!! It is really cool atraction! I would recomend to do it in the end. of the day. In the winter around 4 Pm and in the summer around 7pm to see the beautiful sunset! I did the city center option. It has another option that goes to the south of the city!
