We had an amazing tour guide Patricia. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing all her knowledge about Braga and Guimaraes. The lunch was incredible and was unexpectedly 3 courses so be prepared for that. It was also of very good quality which was a pleasant, delightful surprise. The tour was better than I expected and we were so grateful to have Patricia as our guide. We definitely want to come back and see more of Portugal thanks to the recommendations.

The tour was fine. We were 6 people and the guide did the tour in two languages, English and Spanish. It was a pity that it was not only in Spanish, although we knew from other comments that it could be in several, being only 6 could have been more fluid and more comfortable. Patricia went out of her way to make us both groups comfortable but I missed something ... Very good food and Braga and Guimaraes very nice.

Our driver named Thiago pickup us punctually at our apartment. He is friendly and drives carefully. We had a great tour with him to Braga and Guimaraes. Unfortunately our tour day is a rainy day but not heavy and stopped in the afternoon. We had buffet lunch (which is included) and the food is nice with cozy environment plus can see some Roman ruins (as the restaurant was built on it). We reached Porto safely on time. Thanks Thiago for the tour!
