We met around 8:15 right in front of our hostel which made the whole journey very comfortable. Our guide, Luis was so happy, active, talkative, warm and friendly that he immediately made the journey worthwhile. It was impressive how he paid attention to us, to the road when he was driving, the topics we talked about and also of what might be interesting for us. Whilst in the national park, he was so patient, funny and encouraging, also asked about our food preferences which made me so happy since it shows he really cared about us having a great experience. He knows nature and the park and the village so well, it shows right away. Also his personality was a perfect fig for our trip, and even though others in the car were slightly more reserved, he didn’t hold back the energy and his outgoing personality which made our trip extremely pleasant. The view, the food that was served in the village, the swimming in both of the lakes, the rock climbing, the road trips, just awesome.

It was amazing, wow, started off being picked up from our hotel which was great. We had a ride of 1.5 hrs, which was still entertaining thanks to Emanuel was great, charismatic fun and informative. We got there and kayaked and paddle boarded it was so amazing peaceful and fun enjoying stunning views thanks to the know of Emanuel. We followed on to an amazing Portugese Lunch which was delicious and various, they even catered for the dietary options of the whole group some of which were gluten free and vegan. After this we went a but offroading which was fun and drove to this secret water fall swimming spot which was breathtaking. We then were driven back to our hotel in porto. All in all a big credit to this amazing experience was Emanuel he made it fun and memorable for all of us. Such a character, thank you so much Emanuel! Emma and James!

Just fantastic, and such good value. Our Guide Patricia was the best we’ve had in many trips - intelligent, knowledgable and interested in people. The sights were all winners - The Church of Bom Jesus is very beautiful, Braga Cathedral is interesting and impressive, and the lunch was generous and delicious. Guimaraes Castle and Palace are interesting, but the town is the real gem… full of beautiful architecture, historic squares and buildings, and plenty of interesting places to explore. A real winner!

A very well-planned trip hat shows you the richness and beauty of the culture in Braga-Guimaraes and the the surrounding areas.

such a great tour!!! pedro was so knowledgeable and the waterfalls were beautiful. saw a different side of portugal
