It is more a transport than tourism and for very cheap! Recommend for transport. We used from Shopping barrasul to centro and back. It is ok but nothing special. You see the city through the window, that is it!

Guaiba is good for a day trip. From Porto Alegre you Need like 20 minutes with the ferry. The Ferry was punctual, had WIFI, was quick and clean.

This is the best way you can see the city from the river and have the chance to know a little bit from the town history. And also the best way to go to Guaiba city.
