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.

The tour was fine. We were 6 people and the guide did the tour in two languages, English and Spanish. It was a pity that it was not only in Spanish, although we knew from other comments that it could be in several, being only 6 could have been more fluid and more comfortable. Patricia went out of her way to make us both groups comfortable but I missed something ... Very good food and Braga and Guimaraes very nice.
