This was a jam packed and super fun day. Lots of walking! I was the only english speaking one on the tour but my guide was still very helpful and I felt a part of the group as the day went on. Lunch was awesome. We had roasted veal with veggie soup, salad, and potatoes with chocolate cake for dessert. I would definitely use get your guide again as it was easy to book and very good experience! I'm glad I booked this as seeing these awesome historic places really made this trip amazing for me.

The guide told us that it was an area where it rains in this period, but just that day did not stop for a minute, so the visit was not good regarding the weather. They are two beautiful places and very different from each other. Very friendly companions, great food, great guide, knew all kinds of information.

A good way to get to know Braga's 2 cities and sanctuaries. I could not do in one day the 2 cities without guide. The guide Nuno was great!
