Perfect tour of Braga & Guimarães
Oct 2021 • Friends
Francisco was an amazing tour guide. Very on time and full of knowledge on the history and sites in Braga and Guimarães. By the end of the trip we felt we had made a new lifelong friend! He fully catered the experience based on our likes and preferences. He not only helped to show us the best of these two cities but gave helpful recommendations around Porto as well.

Best Experiences with Best Guide!
We had a wonderful day with Marcio.

He is knowledgeable, courteous, patient, very mindful and an excellent driver!
We enjoyed every site we visited. Guimarães was our favorite. The old town, the views. Marcio made us feel special always trying to show us more and giving us time to explore on our own.

We liked it so much that we booked another tour (Douro Valley, lunch & tasting) the very next day with him again. So glad we did it. The lunch at Casa de Barros was an experience in itself. Beautiful property not too touristy, very tasteful and the typical food was the best... so were the wines and the ports we tasted.

Do not hesitate a second to book these tours and ask for Marcio 😉
