The trip was beautiful and fun. Our guide was fantastic and kept us entertained and informed all day long.
Day was wonderful, guide (Paula) superb and we are so glad we took the time out to see a little more of Northern Portugal
Really interesting to see the birthplace of Portugal and hear more about its long history. The guide was an excellent leader and made the whole day an absolute delight.
Our guide Sebastian was excellent. Loved this tour!!!! Bom Jesus was just beautiful.
We were fortunate enough to be the only ones on this full day tour . Our tour guide was very informative and very passionate about Portugal. Would certainly recommend this tour.
I truly enjoyed the tour. The guide was very friendly and demonstrated considerable history knowledge of the sights in these beautiful cities. It was a great tour which I did not feel that we rushed at all and had time to explore on my own, but enjoyed the day learning about the interesting history and life in Northern Portugal.
I could not fault this trip It was one of the best I have experienced for a long time
My only criticism was I wish we could have had a little longer at the Sanctuario de bom Jesus. Even so I got there which was my plan!
This was a nice day trip from Porto to see some interesting areas close by. Our guide, Claudia, was amazing and I am sure she is not paid as much as she should be. Her facility with languages was amazing and the way she included everyone in her explanations, even alternating the order she gave them in, was appreciated. Lunch was the best tour lunch we had and I think Living Tours is a well run group. These two sites have much historical significance and interest and are well worth visiting.
My husband and I truly enjoyed our tour. Maria, our pleasant guide, demonstrated considerable knowledge about the history of these wonderful cities. The van was comfortable and the people in our group got along very well, making this experience even more delightful.
My husband and I had a great time on the tour. We didn't feel rushed at all, but at the same time there was enough activities to keep us busy and interested. Our tour guide, Maria was very informative. Tour was as described.
AWESOME comprehensive tour of these two magical northern Portugal cities! We were absolutely pleased with the professionalism and friendliness of Living Tours Portugal Sightseeing Tour Company, especially our tour guide AND driver - Paula!
The guide was very good. She had a jovial personality and provided copious information to all the group in three different languages. I had a very pleasant and informative day with a good coach driver, excellent guide and an enjoyable lunch.
Wonderful day tour of castles and cathedrals and the included lunch was delicious. Our tour guide was great!
The scenaries was awsome and the place has so much more to offer. tour or not it is a most see. the tour was a more relaxed trip than I anticipated for a 8 hours trip. When I phoned a day in advance to check for my pick up from hotels I was told that its not offered though it was in the online deal! Next day I was told it is included but it was too late. It is a small understanding to be fair. Other than that it was really good.
The tour itself was good, with an excellent guide.
But we will not book through Viator again.
The rendezvous point given for the start of the tour was wrong, and the name of the local travel company provided was also wrong, so it was a somewhat shaky start.
Fortunately, we managed to contact someone on a mobile from the (closed) Lisbon office of the company we were given, early on a Sunday morning. She tracked down and directed the local driver/guide from the right company in Porto to where we were.
We were lucky to have got someone so helpful on their day off.
