Full description
In the morning, meet your guide at your Porto hotel and set off on a private full-day tour of the Minho Region. Board an air-conditioned minivan, head north up the coast and enjoy views of blooming landscapes that decorate the hillsides.

During the drive, learn about the rich culture and heritage of this region that boasts two agriculturally friendly rivers- the Lima and Minho. Arrive in the medieval town of Valença do Minho where you will visit the fortress, wander around the ancient city center and enjoy the small streets, and take the opportunity to appreciate the typical handicrafts in the stores.

After lunch, continue to the coastal retreat town known as Viana do Castelo. Pass through town and drive to the top to reach the Basilica of Santa Luzia. Here, gaze over the Atlantic coast and take in the green hillsides that surround the town beneath you.

As the sun begins to set, voyage back to your hotel where your tour ends.
