It was a brilliant day. It was cold and really wet, so not quite ideal day for a day trip. However this tour led from one highlight to the next. We felt that it offered so much more than most day trips. We were introduced to certain local traditions, which we found really enriching. The day started of with a visit to the Sé de Braga with a history that goes back for centuries and its most beautiful double organs. It ended with a visit to a quinta where we had the honor to spend some quality time with the owner as he introduced us to his wines. Worth it? most definitely YES!

This was the BEST tour we have taken!! Alex and Kristina made the day pass with a lot of knowledge and history of the region and country all the while making it seem like we were catching up with old friends. Everywhere we went we were treated like family and the winery was not only an incredibly beautiful estate but one where again the family made us feel like friends. From start to finish it was perfect. Thank you both for making our trip to Porto and this tour so wonderful! Love the secrets!

This is a MUST if you are in Porto. SIMPLY AMAZNG!

Alessandro and Sonia were incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating with my family's needs. They did everything possible to make sure we were happy. They even went to a bakery to get my husband a cake for his birthday. Words cannot describe how memorable this tour was. Your Porto visit will not be complete without visiting Braga, Guimaraes and the additional non tourist stops that are true Portuguese staples. Thank you Alessandro and Sonia!
