Beautiful ride! Guide Joana Teixeira is excellent. Besides being nice, she knows the background and drives very well.

A great day with our great guide Artur. Not only is he super nice and knows his subject like the back of his hand, but his mastery of French is stunning! Guimaraes and Braga seduced us. An excursion not to be missed from Porto!
