Then I will drive you to Guimarães which is the birthplace of Portugal Nation. We start by visiting the Guimarãe's Castle located oven a hill. From one of its seven towers located over you will observe the wonderful city view.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great day exploring Braga and Guimaraes with Ricardo. He was completely flexible with regards to the agenda and was accommodating when he knew I had an injury. He also is exceedingly polite and gracious. After spending some years working in high-end British hotels, he hasn't lost any of the charm needed for that type of role. We highly recommend him as a guide.
