Friendly experience made with our children who enjoyed it. In 30 minutes we know the beautiful corners of the city. It is a good original way to visit. The guide knows the topics well. Enjoy your visit in French. Thank you.

Violeta was a great guide, very knowledgeable and very personable. There were four of us, my wife and I speaking only English, and a Brazilian couple speaking only Portuguese. She handled it perfectly.

Our touguide Violetta was well informed and responded to our interests. We were the only participants and had a very interesting excursion. Braga is better than Guimaraes for a break.

A very well-planned trip hat shows you the richness and beauty of the culture in Braga-Guimaraes and the the surrounding areas.
