Great tour with an excellent guide. Braga and Guimarães are really nice places and full of interesting history. Many thanks to our guide Silvia who made this day tour just perfect. She’s knowledgeable and described with detail all the places that we visited. She was also very accommodating and answered all of our queries.

I would highly recommend this tour! It was really well planned and the guide (sorry, can’t remember the name) was very knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly. You get to see the main attractions and places, and our guide was in no hurry to get back, so we got to enjoy everything at our own pace. The lunch is a great value for money, I recommend taking it. If you’re interested just book it, you won’t be disappointed.
