Fabulous Tour

In my opinion, the experience, knowledge, and attitude of the guide contributes significantly to my enjoyment of the tour. Nuno Mendes was outstanding! He tirelessly offered historical and practical information, in English and Spanish, taking every opportunity to share with me information that helped me learn and appreciate the significance of the religious and national heritage sites. He even exposed us to lovely Portuguese music during the longer rides. I appreciated his careful driving! And most importantly, his passion for his country! I highly recommend Nuno and this tour of Portugal’s astounding and significant towns.

My friend and I had a great tour with André! There were only four people total (two English speakers and two French speakers), and André explained all the sights in great detail in both languages. The cities, sanctuaries, and cathedrals were all gorgeous. The lunch was delicious! The health and safety restrictions with Covid-19 were upheld throughout the tour.

We were amazed by our tour guide, who switched with ease between Spanish and English for each groups of his guests. The sites were beautiful and amazing, and we enjoyed everything we saw.

Very difficult to follow , largely due to being communicated in partial sentences in one language then on to others , then back to finish a sentence/explanations . Due to this fact, it was not at all informative and somewhat boring. Not what we were expecting.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Claudia, our guide was exceptional. She took great care to patiently explain everything to us in both English and Portuguese to accommodate everyones native languages. In Braga, the shrine of Dom Jesus, was particularly inspirational. After a delicious lunch, Claudia took us to Guimaraes. She led us on a leisurely stroll through its very charming streets and plazas. Along the way, we visited a castle, a church, and other historic attractions. Free time is built into this tour to allow you some freedom to further explore or relax on your own.That is a comfortable way of making the overall experience very accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour.

Nuno was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. The small group size made the tour personal and everyone was friendly. The sites around Braga and Guimeres were beautiful and lunch was tasty!
