Full description
Take a private tour and discover these 2 impressive cities.

Your tour starts in Guimarães, where Portugal was born, with a visit to Castelo de Guimarães where everything started and from where Don Afonso Henriques (Portugal's 1st King) governed the kingdom.

During the morning you will discover narrow and medieval streets where the king and nobles used to wander, important squares where important battles took place and many other historic sites.

Not far away from Guimarães (a couple kilometers) you will reach Braga, founded by the Romans around 2000 years ago, and named Bracara Augusta.

You will discover the historic city center, churches, beautiful architecture and understand why the history of the city is often confused with that of a bishop. Like many other Portuguese cities Braga mixes tradition, history and modernity with important universities and technology centers.

Those two unique cities know how to blend, in the best way possible, history and heritage with the dynamism and entrepreneurship that characterize modern cities. This tour can be tailored according to your desires and time available.
