Had a wonderful day walking around Coimbra with Ana Paula. Ana was very friendly, informative and great to spend time with. We learned all about the educational hallmarks and the history of Portugal's origin and at one point vast colonies. We lucked out with no rain this day so it was a nice stroll seeing many beautiful and historical places. The library was beautiful! Highly recommend!

Ana was amazing!!! She was very informative in an interesting and humorous way, and she helped the old city of Coimbra come alive. I truly enjoyed spending three hours with her, and could have spent much more time with Ana! She explained the aspects of the way the University came into being extremely well! Muito Obrigado Ana!
