Superb tour. Milena is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable on the history of Portugal as well as stories on traditions and popular legends. A real pleadure to spend the day with her. Wish our next tours were with her. Also, daytrip from Porto to Braga and Guinaraes is a must, if you have the time.

The first part in Braga was interesting and the views were definitely worth it. The Guimarães section disappointed us. A castle / fortress and the palace of the dukes where in both cases we had to pay our entrance fees contrary to what we had understood, nothing seen from the village. The lunch had not been confirmed, two possible dishes bacalau and over-roasted goat almost just bones. We were only 7 which is good but the guide did not give clear instructions, we waited for 2 people at the Palace of the Dukes beyond an hour and a half without explanations.
