A small group tour offers a more personalized experience with less rushing. We were guided by Tiago who was very friendly and accommodating. The tour in general was very good with a stop at a nice restaurant in Braga which offered a choice of fish, meat, and vegetarian options as well as a choice of dessert. The meal included green wine, coffee, tea, water, etc. I wish we could have spent more time in Guimarães as it felt a little bit rushed. We were not able to walk around the historic downtown area. Instead, we drove by some part of the city after visiting the castle and the palace.
I enjoyed the day trip to Braga and Guimarães. We were a group of 7, English and Porteguese speaking. Our tour guide, Patricia, communicated in both languesi. She was informative, very knowledgeable on the history of these areas, and very personable. Our day consisted of walking through the towns, visiting very interesting historical sites, a delicious lunch , and some free time to do a little shopping . Patricia, our tour guide, made sure that the tour was very inclusive for all, and as a result everyone interacted, which made for a very enjoyable day.
Really good day activity! We were lucky to be the only people during this day, so it was more of a private tour. Patricia is an incredible tour guide, she's got a contagious great mood, and she knows what she's talking about. Sights are wonderful, even with a little rain you can definitely enjoy. Sometimes tour lunch can be a bit "cheap", but in this case it was a very nice restaurant with traditional Portuguese food, really enjoyable. All in all, very recommended. Thanks Patricia!
We had an amazing tour guide Patricia. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing all her knowledge about Braga and Guimaraes. The lunch was incredible and was unexpectedly 3 courses so be prepared for that. It was also of very good quality which was a pleasant, delightful surprise. The tour was better than I expected and we were so grateful to have Patricia as our guide. We definitely want to come back and see more of Portugal thanks to the recommendations.
Our driver named Thiago pickup us punctually at our apartment. He is friendly and drives carefully. We had a great tour with him to Braga and Guimaraes. Unfortunately our tour day is a rainy day but not heavy and stopped in the afternoon. We had buffet lunch (which is included) and the food is nice with cozy environment plus can see some Roman ruins (as the restaurant was built on it). We reached Porto safely on time. Thanks Thiago for the tour!
