Aveiro and surrounds in half day..Do It!
We were very pleasantly surprised by this tour. So informative and so interesting. We would not have seen a lot of this without taking a tour, I am sure. The porcelain factory, Vista Alegre, is worth the visit and the history is so amazing. The lighthouse and Cost Nova another must see and just the general information of Aveiro and the Canals is worth the tour. Highly recommend.

University town
Coimbra is very picturesque hilly town with narrow streets and university sitting on top of this hill. We took tour with Oscar, who was very enthusiastic about his Alma Mater. Students here still follow medieval tradition of wearing capes and color string of their faculty and still sing Fado songs in honor of girls and university. If you visit university, don't forget about university library with ancient folios and bats saving old books from mosquitoes.

Great little tour
Although it was overcast, this was still a great way to see the nearby beach towns and learn a little about the city. Our guide was Rosemary? and she was a good guide. We learned a little of the local history and got to see the nearby lighthouse and beach. We also stopped to see the houses in Costa Nova.

A great personal tour!
We had a spur of the moment idea to have a tour of the beach houses along the coast, and it proved to be a great idea to do it with Miguel! A very personalised tour, in an immaculately-maintained vehicle - we thoroughly enjoyed our couple of hours learning about the area, the local history and enjoying the sea breeze. Obrigado Miguel.

Wonderful trip - great guide
We did a last-minute tour of Costa Nova and Praia da Barra with Miguel whilst visiting Aveiro for the day. I’m so glad we did as it was the highlight of our Porto holiday! It was lovely to get out of the city for the day and we totally fell in love with the beach with its sand dunes, wooden walkways and lighthouse. Miguel was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about the area and we got so much more from the trip than if we had just tried to take a bus and do it ourselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again, in fact I’m already planning my next trip to Portugal as I love discovering new places to visit there. Go ahead and book a Trip to Remember - you won’t regret it!

Excellent transfer service
We hired Secular Trips to transfer two clients, from Aveiro Train Station to a restaurant in Sangalhos, 30 km south from Aveiro. Miguel was extremely responsive prior the service, always very solicitous and professional. He picked himself the clients and drove them to destination. The service was excellent. Miguel was at the station on time, very thoughtful with both ladies, one of them a senior one, helping her at all times. We would definitely use Secular Trips again and recommend it to everyone!

Excellent customer service!
I have used the services of Secular regularly for approximately 2 months. The service is easy to book in an e-platform which makes payments super convenient. Miguel provides a great service that adapts to the customer circumstances, always trying to help. He is very punctual and cares for delivering great customer service. Miguel is a very friendly person to have a nice road trip conversation also. 100% recommend!

Miguel is a GREAT guide
Miguel lead us on a delightful tour of some of the most beautiful historic villages and sights in all of Portugal. He is an excellent driver and very knowledgeable guide. His English is terrific and he is an enthusiastic and witty advocate for this lovely part of Portugal. He planned our three day trip including meals and accommodations that far exceeded our expectations.It was a trip we could never have made on our own.

Most eye-opening and personal tour by Miguel!
We went on a tour with Miguel to Barra and Costa Nova beach. We initially thought of doing it independently via bus and walking, but Miguel provided so much more! He shared with us all about the history of Aveiro (salt farming, cod fishing) to the unique geography of the lagoon-sea of Aveiro and sand dunes as we drove past and stopped for photos. The tour was meant to be for 1.5 hours, but Miguel was so kind to give us so much time to take photos (with the beautiful candy-striped houses in Costa Nova) that it stretched to 3 hours! Thank you so much Miguel it was one of the best and most personal tours we've ever experienced. We love Aveiro!

Bellissima visita
Visita bellissima, palazzo meraviglioso da visitare assolutamente. Le visite sono solo guidate, ad orario prestabilito e unicamente in lingua portoghese, francese, inglese e spagnolo. Fatela in lingua spagnola, si capisce benissimo.

Un très bon moment passé avec Miguel
Miguel « Secular - Trips to remember » Freitas nous a emmené dans son van de Aveiro à Costa Nova. D’une part je recommande Costa Nova, charmante cité balnéaire d’Aveiro située de l’autre côté de la lagune, et célèbre pour ses maisons colorées et ses dunes de sable, mais surtout je recommande de faire appel à Miguel, amoureux de sa région, très érudit, et sympa comme tout, qui vous fera découvrir ces lieux qu’il connaît comme sa poche, tout en sachant équilibrer commentaires et temps libre.

Utilizei os serviços da SECULAR TRIP (Sr. Miguel Freitas) para ir ao Museu Marítimo de Ílhavo e Costa Nova. Surpreendi-me muito positivamente, pois além de levar-me às localidades,ele descrevia importantes situações históricas e peculiares, agregando valor ao passeio e o tornando único. Isto sem falar na disposição em apresentar outras localidades e dizer, com conhecimento histórico irrepreensível, do que se tratava cada um. O veículo utilizado é extremamente confortável. Recomendo fortemente, A viagem valeu cada centavinho.

Viagem com meu pai idoso
Contratei Sr. Migual para nos levar de Lisboa ao Porto com pernoite em Fátima. E depois, para passeios no Porto e em Braga. Sempre dirigiu com segurança e tranquilidade. Além disso, foi extremamente prestativo e muito carinhoso com meu pai, que está usando cadeira de rodas, auxiliando-o a entrar e sair do carro. Isso fez toda a diferença. Ainda nos deu diversas dicas de passeios e compras. Certamente se voltar, irei contratá-lo novamente.
