Just fantastic, and such good value. Our Guide Patricia was the best we’ve had in many trips - intelligent, knowledgable and interested in people. The sights were all winners - The Church of Bom Jesus is very beautiful, Braga Cathedral is interesting and impressive, and the lunch was generous and delicious. Guimaraes Castle and Palace are interesting, but the town is the real gem… full of beautiful architecture, historic squares and buildings, and plenty of interesting places to explore. A real winner!

Patricia was our excellent tour guide. She drove very well, she explained a lot about Portugese history and the cities we visited. We we with 5 American tourists and Patricia could speak good english. I recommend this very interesting tour. Thank you Patricia and Get your Guide
