Best Experiences with Best Guide!

★★★★★ Reviewed by Nathalie on 2019-05-03
We had a wonderful day with Marcio. He is knowledgeable, courteous, patient, very mindful and an excellent driver! We enjoyed every site we visited. Guimarães was our favorite. The old town, the views. Marcio made us feel special always trying to show us more and giving us time to explore on our own. We liked it so much that we booked another tour (Douro Valley, lunch & tasting) the very next day with him again. So glad we did it. The lunch at Casa de Barros was an experience in itself. Beautiful property not too touristy, very tasteful and the typical food was the best... so were the wines and the ports we tasted. Do not hesitate a second to book these tours and ask for Marcio

Excelente tour con André!! Nos explicó detalladamente cada lugar que visitamos en Guimaraes y Braga. Sumamente atento y amable. Respondió todas las preguntas que iban surgiendo a medida que recorríamos, demostrando gran conocimiento de la historia, la política, la geografía y todo lo relativo a Portugal. Un tour de día completo que resultó una experiencia maravillosa!!
