Braga and Guimarães Private Tour from Porto
- Private group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
Per group up to 3
Day tour consisted of small group of tourists (7) and guide. We were driven around in comfortable Mercedes bus and we picked up on time from our hotel. The journey to Fatima takes less than 2 hrs and our guide used some of that time to give us necessary backgroud about the history of the region, geography and economy. But, the info was not excessive, just right-balanced. We have had some time to ourselves to enjoy Fatima, which was great as everyone had free hand to do things they wanted. After that, we have had very nice lunch together and shortly after set on way to Coimbra. Our guide used really nice spots for us to take pictures of the City as well as parked van in close proximity to landmarks. In overall, it was worth taking trip as it was informative and showed us two beautiful places stress free with plenty of information. Highly recommended venue.
Firstly the quality of the e-bikes was very good which isn't always the case when you hire bikes and secondly Valter our guide was good fun and both knowledgable and passionate about his home city of Porto. Porto is very hilly but the bikes dealt with these easily. Valter took us along interesting streets and passages stopping at points of interest or where the views were amazing. It was really interesting to learn about Porto's history but also about the culture that exists today. We would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic two hours tour, really informative and perfect for navigating all the steep hills which we would never have managed on foot Our guide was Dutch and spoke perfect English We certainly felt we got our money's worth It was good fun and we covered a lot of ground The meeting point was a little difficult to find because they are currently recovering from a fire and the signage was not very good Lots of stops for photos and general questions
Our family of 5 enjoyed every minute. My kids Ages 4,6,9 loved the little cars And the open air and the fast paced. We saw many more sights than what we would have seen on our own. Our kids would have been too hot, tired, and hungry for us to try to navigate and park and walk to all the locations. We also got to venture off the beaten path to some great photo spots that were not packed with tourist.
We traveled with 2 kids and the company provided with 2 baby seats (upon request). The group was small (4 bikes) and the guide was very nice and ver patient (as we were always distracted with the kids). The bikes are in good conditions - necessary to go up hill. It was fun and a very way of visiting Porto!
