We loved our day exploring these 2 beautiful cities. Our guide Pedro was funny, relaxed & knowledgeable. Small group was great as you get to know everyone and it makes for an enjoyable day. Braga was incredible, especially the Jesus Bo Monte & Guimares was so charming and wonderful. Well worth it. Lunch was great also!

Our guide was extremely familiar with the history of the cities, interesting n passionate of the cultural, food n wine aspects of this region. We have a group of 6 ( 3 men n 3 women) and we all have fun. Definitely an enjoyable day trip. Personally, I like Guimaraes- the town center is village-like with tree-lined plazas. Perfect relaxing town to spent vacation!!!
