What people are saying about Braga
Awesome trip with beautiful and enchanting places to see. The guide was very sympathetic and he had a lot to say about the culture and the history. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone who loves the nature and his past.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with our guide Philip to Guimareas and Braga. Very comfortable drive and great knowledge of area. Highly recommend.
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!
Me and my partner booked this tour on our trip in Porto. We were picked up by two very nice guides right from the hotel. We were the only ones who booked this tour that day so we actually recieved a private tour. Tours never exeed 7 people, very cozy atmosphere. Not only were we visiting beautiful castles and churches, but we also stopped for portuguese snacks and drinks all inclusive on our way to the destinations. Very humorous and informative guides that didnt have a tight time schedule. We went over the estimated time of 9 hours with no extra charge or feeling bad. All in all this tour has opened my eyes to not only the portuguese history but especially the cultural habits and the portuguese way of life! We would do this tour again any day!
We could probably have given Guimaraes a miss! Braga was very pleasant and the walk up the steps to Bom Jesus was good post lunch exercise. The views would have been excellent but visibility was reduced by fires on the surrounding hills. Why do all of those Catholic religious figures always have to look so miserable? Our guide was competent and drove us well and left us to explore on our own from time to time.
