Great tour guide

Cristiane was a great tour guide. She had an indepth knowledge of the history of Braga and she made the tour fun for us. She didn't rush but took time to tell us interesting facts about the sites we visited. She also offered to take photos and most importantly, tips on the best cafés to go to. We had such a great experience with Cristiane and I will highly recommend her.

"Rich walk in the center of Braga"

We had a short visit to Braga and to fully exploit it decided to book this tour. It was the best idea! We had the chance to see the city center with a local and very well prepared guide (Cristiane). She was super kind, and gave us many information and suggestions! After a rich walk in the center of Braga, Cristiane took us to Bom Jesus where we visited the sanctuary and the park. We highly recommend booking this tour!
