Start your small-group tour with pickup from centrally located Porto hotels, then relax on the 45-minute drive to Guimarães.
Upon arrival in the historical city of Guimarães, visit the hulking 10th-century Guimaraes Castle (Castelo de Guimaraes), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Portugal's first king was born. Next, go to Colina Real and stop at the Church of São Miguel do Castelo, where the first king was baptized. You also visit the 15th-century Palace of the Dukes of Bragança.
Finish your tour of Guimarães in the historical town center, which features handsome 17th and 18th century buildings.
Choose from a morning or afternoon departure for your 4-hour tour, which ends with return to Porto by early afternoon or early evening (depending on departure option chosen).
