Had a great experience. Tour didn't feel rushed. Had a small group which made me feel more comfortable during the duration. Would definitely recommend to travelers heading to Portugal!

The Guimaraes and Braga tour was excellent. Joan sorry, if my spelling is wrong was the best guide I have ever met. And I have to say that Portugal was the 20th country I visited, so I have a great experience in many kinds of tours, I know what I am saying. Joan was really the best. A lot of very interesting information, great attitude, assistance and charming smile - all of this we got from him. It was so easy to listen to him, not boring at all. Joan has a deep knowledge of Portugal history and culture and answered all my questions. After this amazing tour, after seeing these wonderful towns with their churches, old charming buildings, narrow and cozy streets and beautiful fields and green hills, that Joan showed to us, we fell in love with Portugal. And one more moment: it was rainy day, and Joan bought and gave umbrellas to all women in our group!
Joan, thank you very much! I cannot find words to describe how happy we were to have this tour and to meet so wonderful guide.

This small group tour limited to 8 tourists in a van with Living Tours is a MUST for everyone visiting northern Portugal. Braga with the church of our Lady of Sameiro with its gorgeous views and the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus with its baroque terraced stairway and statues, and the town of Guimaraes with the castle, palace, and quaint square are breathtaking. Lunch was delicious! Our guide Tiago was excellent- a very responsible and safe driver, very informative and polite - thanks to him our our trip really enjoyable! The best trip in northern Portugal!

Had a fabulous day trip to Guimaraes and Braga, with
a great guide, Joa. Guimaraes was having the
1st day of a yearly festival, so we experienced a medieval
Theatre treat - everyone in costumes and lots
of medieval scenarios. Both Guimaraes and Braga
should be on everyone's Portugal to do list, with Braga's Cathedral
a real bonus too. Viator provided lunch was delicious-
a great day and experience in all.

We had such a great time on this tour, Yorick, our guide was FANTASTIC. Small group, GREAT lunch and beautiful sights. Yorick worked hard translation in 3 languages and did a great job. I had been before by car but Living tours is the way to go, no parking miles away, no waiting for lunch, can not recommend it highly enough. Arrived to pick us up on time, arrived a little later than originally set but this was because Yorick gave us all enough time to see, shop and take pictures and made sure everyone was satisfied before heading to the next destination. This is a beautiful part of Portugal with so much history, well worth seeing it with Living Tours.

This was a great tour! The tour guide was a young man in his mid-20's, unfortunately I forgot his name : We were picked up on time from our hotel and the car ride was very smooth and comfortable. We were a small group of just six plus the tour guide, which I really liked. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of both Guimarães and Braga. He did his best to answer all our questions, made sure no to lose anybody and did his best to satisfy our requests/needs. The lunch was extremely delicious! We had the traditional baked pork, grilled salmon was the other choice. We also were given enough free time where we were able to walk around a bit on our own, take pictures and buy souvenirs. Finally, we were all dropped off in front of our hotels.

The tour guide went above and beyond, giving us directions on the fastest/easiest way to get to a beach in Porto after he dropped us off at our hotel. I highly recommend this tour!

This is a great tour but to my family, we really enjoy Luis as the guide. Luis handled the day tour with lots of energy. We had a very diverse group and the tour had to be in 3 languages -Portuguese, Spanish and English. Luis was amazing and was tireless to make sure we all have the same information. He is a great tour guide and my family had an awesome time! Thank you Luis!

This is the best tour I have booked through Viator. The places we visited were wonderful. Our guide, Elsa, was very informative and gave us enough alone time to explore both cities a little on our own. There were only six of us on the tour and we travelled in a very comfortable van. The place chosen for our lunch was excellent and we had time to talk and visit with the two other couples on our tour. It was just a very good experience all around.

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.
