Amazing day with Tiago during Coimbra and Aveiro Tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Eleonor on 2019-09-25
On September 6, 2018, we went on a private tour to Coimbra and Aveiro. Our guide was Tiago and at 9 AM he was waiting for us in front of our hotel. Our first stop was the beautiful Coimbra which followed by exquisite lunch at Rei Dos Lei Toes. During lunch, Tiago introduced us to traditional Portuguese food and traditions. After lunch, we went to Aveiro and enjoyed a boat ride on the Canal. Tiago was an excellent guide, lovely, personable. He answered all our questions about the various places we visited and make us feel very comfortable. At the end of the tour, we were dropped at our hotel.

Exploring Coimbra and Aveiro

★★★★★ Reviewed by Frank on 2019-07-24
Our tour guide Miguel was a true gentleman and a professional. Miguel is very knowledgeable, accommodating and attentive. Our tour began with our journey to Portugal’s first capital of Coimbra. It is also a university town. Beautiful campus, library, and chapel. Great town to explore. We stopped at a beautiful restaurant, Metas dos Leitoes, for traditional regional lunch of a succulent pig, potatoes, salad, wine and dessert. It was delectable! Then off to Aveiro for a traditional boat ride and brief tour of the town. Miguel got us one the most delicious treats ever called “Ovos Moles”, absolutely delicious! All in all it was a wonderful day. Again, so glad Miguel was our guide.
