The tour was conducted by livingtours. Excellent guide Daniel, comfortable touring in an 8 seater van, good commentary and explanations, fantastic lunch included and sufficient free time. The Bom Jesus church in Braga is absolutely beautiful and a must visit.
Great tour. You must see this church plus take the challenge of the 1000 steps from the bottom up. Lots of history to know about it.
We enjoyed our very full day tour to Guinares and Braga. Our tour guide Daniel was fabulous and went out of his way to make sure we had a great day. Daniel was very knowledgeable and very attuned to the needs of the group. Well worth the trip.

We really enjoyed our small group tour. Our guide Daniel was very funny, knowledgeable, and chill. We never felt rushed at all. We were always given some free time at each place to explore. Lunch was pretty good with huge portion. We would recommend this tour.
This was our first day in Portugal and first tour with this company. It was flawless and a superb experience. Pedro was a walking encyclopedia and very kind and lunch was amazing so much food! We could not have been happier and felt well looked after. An excellent experience!
This was a wonderful day with Daniel our Guide/Driver. He was great to be with and we enjoyed ourselves a lot. A fantastic lunch with choice of main course and all beverages included was really enjoyed by all.
Excellent, small group tour. Excellent guide. Relaxed and very good lunch. An enjoyable and informative day
Daniel our tour guide was AMAZING! so knowledgeable, and passionate about the history and details of every place visited, full of content, professional courteous and fluent in 4 languages and more we are sure , flawless simultaneous translations and a joyful attitude we were shown the best by the best.
Highly recommend Daniel and if you book this trip make sure you request to be in his group. Incredible and impressive places! Lunch was really good! We highly recommend this tour! Obrigado Daniel!
Loved the tour--went on a Monday and there were no crowds--very few people so could really enjoy and see the sights. Our guide Pedro was very good!
cristian est un guide très gentil plein d'imagination pour changer le programme car il pleuvé beaucoup, il est attentionné, très cultivé, bref une journée excellente, visite d'un petit port ou il nous a donné une très bonne adresse on nous avons mangé le soir. Superbe journée même sous la pluie
To be honest, I was not expect such good tour before joining. After the day, I was a little bit shocked. Our guide Claudia is amazing, not only speaks so many different languages, but also know a lot about the history and religion background of the sites we are visiting, plus by the same time she is the only driver covers the entire trip. It was a fantastic day, the pace is good as well plus the food. I would recommend it to all my friends.
Enjoyed Braga and the cathedrals. Also liked the medieval town, Guimaraes.
Great experience! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Wonderful way to experience a beautiful part of the world.
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!
Superb tour of both cities and definately worth visiting. The guide was excellent and knows the history of both cities very well and was able to share it with interesting stories.
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!
