What people are saying about Braga
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!
The guides were very friendly but we would not consider them as “live guide” because they were not explaing things in a professional way or they were explaining little. We usually had free time to see the places. They took us to a restaurant which we were not very happy about. They did not have the food we ordered, but they told us 45 min. later, we spend too much time for lunch, the food was not good. Therefore we could not have enough time to see Guimares.
My daughter and I had an awesome day in the nature reserve. We got to see two totally different areas of the park, had a very nice hike to a waterfall, learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Very pleasant. One day later we got a photo documentation about our trip. This is all thanks to our guide Pedro, who is very nice person and very knowledgeable about the area; he even showed us which “steps” to take when climbing down to the waterfall.
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!
Pedro is a great tour guide who really takes care of his customers. We were picked up at our location on time. Had great conversations with him all the time and he showed us a lot of nice spots in Geres. Waterfalls, view points, nice local meals is what is waiting for you. Only advice: The roads are a little shaky with lots of small serpentines, so take care of having some medicine with you, in case you are very sensitive to it.
