Not as expected
abjohnson1994

Bus was very hot. When returned the iffice it was much cooler outside than it was in the bus. AC didn’t seem to be working. The air coming out of vents was not cool. Very distracting to speak in English and Portuguese. Very little English was used. Guide would say a few words in English then switch to Portuguese. Sights were good but we didn’t get much narrative. Lunch was good but guide left restaurant with only part of group going with him. The remaining 5 finally decided to go to where the bus dropped us off. Guide should have all of us together before leaving.

Amazing Experience visiting Monasteries and historic Braga & Guimaraes!
Steffan

Our trip to Braga and Guimaraes was an absolute delight. Our tour guide Nuno Mendes was incredibly knowledgeable! He was definitely an asset to us all on the trip. We saw so much yet the itinerary is so well planned that it felt so well paced and relaxing. We had enough time to see everything including free time to explore the monasteries, Braga's historic district and the old cobblestone streets or Guimaraes. I highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore this beautiful area of Northern Portugal. You will be in awe the whole time!!

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.

Great tour even during the pandemic

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.
