Fernanda is a brilliant guide and Braga is stunning. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was absolutely first class. I use tours by locals a lot and Fernanda is the best I have had. Don't hesitate to book her tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely review, Graham; It was a pleasure to have your company and I very much appreciate your feedback. There's much more to see, so please come back again! All the best, Fernanda
My wife, Patricia, and I spent a highly enjoyable day with Fernanda. The activities she had arranged for the day were varied and wide-ranging-- sites both in and outside Braga -- and we learned a lot from her comments and responses to our questions. She was also a very friendly and agreeable companion; we had a number of informal conversations with her, mainly about life (e.g., education) in modern Portugal. In short, a memorable day with a fine guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert and Patricia, thank you so much for your kind words; I am truly pleased to know that you highly enjoyed your day. It was, in fact, a privilege to spent the day with you both. I really hope you can come back again, to discover more of my region. All the best to you, Fernanda

Fernanda is probably the best tour guide I ever had from Tour by Locals. She was flexible enough to design an itinerary that fits my needs and interests. Instead of doing a walking tour, she took her car and showed me the major historical sites as originally planned in Braga and then took me to the suburbs to visit Bom Jesus do Monte, which in my opinion was the most unforgettable experience in Braga. She then took me to Guimarães Castle and ended the tour having a wonderful Portuguese local cuisine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tim! I am so glad that you were pleased about the tour, I've really enjoyed our time together, it was great meeting you.

Fernanda was excellent at communicating with us in planning our 2 day trip to the Braga area after a Douro cruise on Viking. She picked us up at the dock, transported us to the Braga area and did an outstanding job of showing us the northwestern portion of Portugal despite pouring rain. Plans to tour Roman archeological sites were obvious not happening in rain and mud but flexibility keep us seeing interesting sites, eating delicious local fare, and enjoying our last 2 days in Portugal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, thank you for your comments and the five stars. I greatly appreciate it. I enjoyed myself with you and Barbara during the tour; it was really a pleasure to spend time with such a funny and cultivated ladies. Many thanks, Fernanda
