We had a great day out visiting Braga's religious sites and learning about the history of Portugal and Guimarães. Our tour guide Sofia was knowledgeable and went out of her way to make everyone on our small group tour feel welcome and comfortable. We stopped for lunch at a lovely restaurant and filled up on fish, turkey and salad. It was a hot day but Sofia made sure we kept cool. Thanks again Sofia for a wonderful day out!

This was a very enjoyable tour under the perfect blue sky of your picture! We were only 4 on this tour, in a minivan. The guide was very knowledgeable and had a warm personality. Historic buildings were sumptuous. A copious lunch in a local restaurant was included. Absolutely worth embarking on!

We had a wonderful trip from Porto to Braga and Guimaraes. Our guide, Elsa, could not have been better and we loved both towns. An excellent day - thank you Elsa!

Beide Städte sind sehenswert. Die Kathedrale von Braga ist allein wegen seiner Orgeln einen Besuch wert. Die Treppe zum Heiligtum Bom Jesus ist sehr interessant, aber es war so regnerisch und neblig, dass sie kaum zu sehen war. Schade.

Our tour guide Joana was wonderful! It was an interesting day, beautiful sights. The meal was great. The only thing I would change is more free time in Guimaraes.

Great tour! A very intelligent solution for seeing the most important nearby sites in 1 day as well as customized for a small group of people (7-8) in a mini-van. No stress, no rush, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I had a pleasure to have the same guide, Paula Marinho, who led also the previous day tour to Fatima and Coimbra. She was just excellent: very professional, friendly, multi-lingual (she led the tour in 2 languages: English and Portuguese, driving the van at the same time and guiding us through the sites). Both Braga 6 Guimaraes are beautiful cities reach of history and amazing sites. And, of course the local cuisine was also very delicioesWill definitely recommend the tours and the companies to friends.

The best tour so far. We had a small group and the guide Sophia was absolutely top notch. She explained the history and culture very well. We hoped to have her on other tours. Guimaraes is enchanting and a location we will return to in the future.

Our tour guide, Claudia, was especially knowledgeable and very delighted to share her love for these sites. We were equally delighted to learn from Claudia and two new tour guides who accompanied us. Their enthusiasm and combined experiences made this trip one of the best tours we have ever taken. Braga is beautiful; Guimaraes is gorgeous. These are MUST SEE cities for every serious Portugal travleler.

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.
