Recommend it to people who want to learn more about Braga

As my husband and I were the only people, we had a private tour! The guide Cristiane was knowledgeable and we learned quite a bit. It was also very convenient to have comfortable transportation up to Bom Jesus. Cristiane took us all around the area, not just the church. I'm very glad we did this and would definitely recommend it to people who want to learn more about Braga.

Highly Recommended

We had a wonderful time touring around Braga with Cristiane! She was already waiting for us when we arrived at the Arco da Porta Nova. We walked through the streets of the historic area while learning all about Braga. Cristiane is very knowledgable and we learned a lot about the city and also got some great recommendations for things to do and places to eat after the tour which we took advantage of. We had a tour inside the Sé, the oldest cathedral in Portugal, saw the beautiful Jardim de Santa Bárbara and city market. After touring the historic area, Cristiane drove us out to Bom Jesus do Monte where we took the funicular up to the church for some amazing views and learned all about the history of the site walking back down the amazing stairs. Highly recommend booking this small group tour of Braga with EcoTrilha - early during your visit if possible!

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!

– Frederico, TripAdvisor

The tour was excellent. Chris was amazing, she never made things feel rushed and had great insights into everything we saw. The trip up to Bom Jesus is easy and well worth doing, the park and gardens are gorgeous. This is a great tour to do on your first day in Braga.

"Man sollte vorher nichts essen!"

Wir hatten einen schönen Spaziergang durch das Stadtzentrum und erhielten viele Informationen über die Geschichte und die Gebäude der Stadt. Der 2. Teil war sportlicher. Wir fuhren auf den Berg zur Kirche Bom Jesus und liefen dann viele Treppen wieder runter. Chris ist eine nette Tourleiterin und wir hatten genug Zeit, alles anzuschauen und Fragen zu stellen. Wir empfehlen die Tour, um Braga kennenzulernen. (Translation: We had a nice walk through the city center and received a lot of information about the city's history and buildings. The second part was more sporty. We drove up the mountain to the Bom Jesus church and then walked down many stairs. Chris is a nice tour guide and we had enough time to see everything and ask questions. We recommend the tour to get to know Braga.)
