We went on a small van tour to Braga and Guimaraes with the tour guide Mr. Ricardo Oliveira and 6 other people. The experience was an excellent one, we saw all the popular attractions and sights and Mr. Ricardo showed an excellent knowledge about all of them and really thought us a lot about the Portuguese history. He was so friendly and really made all of us feel welcome. We also had lunch in Braga, in a wonderful restaurant "Diana", that served amazing food and wine (all included in the tour). Overall it was a trip I hope to get to experience again sometime. Jasmin and Lenica from Croatia.

I have done with my partner, the tour of Braga and Guimaraes with our guide Pedro. It is a tour of a maximum of 8 people, which is appreciated, although we were the only Spaniards, it was not difficult to listen to it in two languages, thanks to Pedro making it very enjoyable. We really liked Braga and its monuments and also its streets.
