Despite the rainy day the guide José, did everything possible to meet our expectations. At the beginning of the tour we were full of questions about what the tour would be like due to constant rain and at the end we had our intergations answered in a positive way. We recommend the tour.

All expectations met

We were picked up at the hotel as agreed. The guide responded to all requests and provided us with extensive information. Lunch was also better than expected with fish, beef, pork and wine. I would book this tour again

It is a good place to take a leisurely stroll around Porto, which is about an hour away from the old town. We stayed at Pousada in Guimaraes, but it is an old building, but the inside is beautiful and recommended.

Full of history

We had a great time with Andre. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch was amazing. We would have missed a lot of details if we would have done this on our own. Recommended.

Very professional but with a great personal touch. We loved the sites that were visited. The Sao Martinho monastery is impressive.
