In Coimbra's city center I always do walking tours because I believe it's the best way to enjoy the culture, entering in places and stopping for sightseeing. We can use public transportation such as the city lift (that takes us directly from the riverside to the university) if needed.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I enjoyed a private four hour tour of Coimbra with Sara. We all thought that the tour was great. Sara was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic as we climbed up and down the streets of the city. It was apparent to us that she had a passion for guiding and a great love for Coimbra. She imparted this passion and love to us in such a way that we came away from our tour with not only a knowledge of Coimbra and its history but with a desire to return to this wonderful city in the future.
