Our guide was great. Only reason for 4 stars is a lot of walking which was a little difficult as we are older.
Do not miss Braga and Guimarães
Renata_Z, Dec 2021
Nobody should loose this experiences. Beautiful cities, best person to drive with and everything excellent. I am amazing how Guimarães is well conserved in its medieval city.
Great day trip to two medieval cities
Rick_M, Dec 2021
Our group of four had a wonderful day with Hugo visiting Braga and Guemares . Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter of the day, he was a wealth of knowledge about Portugal in general, regions, history, current environmental threats, etc. both cities were beautiful and historic, we had time in each to see the highlights and to just wander a bit. The lunch selection was excellent, the proprietor enjoyed serving more than one could eat. I highly recommend this tour as well as Portugal Excellence’s other offerings, we had a wonderful Duoro Valley trip with them as well.
Great Tour and Great Host and Great Co-Travelers!
Shanna_C, Oct 2021
We had a blast and we never do the tours but I recommend this one. Tiago was great!! He was funny and speaks 4 languages! Our other friends, Barbara and Iggy, Jason and Kristina were all great too! We had great weather and got to spend time enjoying these sites. We were provided a great lunch with green wine and great fish! We will definitely book again with this company in the hopes of getting Tiago again for the Douro valley tour!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Hello and thank you very much for the words of praise that make us very happy and give us more strength to continue to be the best. We are glad that you also enjoyed the company of our guide Tiago and we are waiting for you for a next opportunity. Cheers!
Amazing daytrip to Braga and Guimaraes
Guy_D, Oct 2021
Amazing daytrip with visit of two beautiful towns Braga and Guimaraes. Our guide Tiago was top ! He was very friendly and told us so much about Bom Jesus, the cathedral and the old city centre of Braga where we had a very good lunch. In the afternoon we visited the very beautiful Palacio Ducale and the old city centre of Guimaraes. I can recommend this trip and this guide to everyone !
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Thank you for your review that perfectly describes what we value in our tour to Braga & Guimarães: A good guide with excellent historical knowledge, a good restaurant that cooks good traditional Portuguese food and moments of sightseeing and leisure in two beautiful cities in the north of Portugal . Glad you liked it and our guide Tiago that sends you his regards.
Great experience
Patricia_F, Oct 2021
Wonderful experience. Our guide, Patricia, was a joy, informative and enthusiastic about her beautiful country. We had some rain and she was very accommodating adjusting our walking routes so we had shelter during some of the heavier rain. A memorable day
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Hui Patricia. Adapting the tour to our travelers is our specialty. We are glad that you liked our guide Patricia (who has the same name as you..) and the contagious joy that she has to offer every day... even in the rain. Cheers!
Nice day!
THERON_F, Mar 2020
Great day. We needed more time to see everything, but we covered a lot for one day. Van ride was comfortable. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Unlike many commercial tours in popular places like Italy, most tours in Portugal are conducted by locals. We had a great lunch at a local place, nice staff. Because of the looming pandemic in March, we ended up with a private tour, so there was extra attention on what we wanted to see and know. Enjoy this tour!
History and Fun!
Bharat_V, Feb 2020
This was an amazing tour. Our guide Patrizia was so informative and knowledgeable. During the travel and the tour itself, we never had a dull moment. The tour was relaxed and not rushed or packed with too many sights. Just perfect. The lunch was also very good.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you very much for your kind words, which are very joyful for us. We look forward to seeing you next time.
Nice Braga/ Guimaraes tour
Danilo_V, Oct 2019
This small group tour is very nice! Our tour guide, Patricia enlightened us on the place and history. We enjoyed this tour a lot
This is supposed to be a small group...
Catherine O, Sep 2018
This is supposed to be a small group tour but it turned out to be a private tour since we are the only ones booked that day.Tiago was super helpful and very knowledgeable of the place. Braga and Guimaraes are a must to see when going to Porto. I highly recommend it.
