We had an excellent guided tour with Diogo. We covered Coimbra at our own pace and Diogo was able to add in details around history and context as much or as little as we wanted. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Communication was great.

The tour with Ana Paulina was like meeting a relative you’ve never met before. We connected immediately, and had a great local perspective of Coimbra (as well as from Aveiro) from an experienced local. Conversation was easy, and the connection, the food, the wine, the places, awesome. Recommend a tour with her 100%. She’s the real thing!!!! Ask her for the cooking Aveiro Tour!

Dear Francisco, I'm so touched after reading this lovely comment of yours! Passing this great day with you both was really special and I've also felt I've gained two close friends! I'm eager to see you again soon and to welcome you to my city (Aveiro) for a special cooking class to celebrate your return! Thank you so much for a awesome day spent with you both and for choosing this tour!

Had a wonderful day walking around Coimbra with Ana Paula. Ana was very friendly, informative and great to spend time with. We learned all about the educational hallmarks and the history of Portugal's origin and at one point vast colonies. We lucked out with no rain this day so it was a nice stroll seeing many beautiful and historical places. The library was beautiful! Highly recommend!

Dear Mark, It was an absolute pleasure to show you the enchanting City of Knowledge (Coimbra nickname), and its hidden gems. I am very happy to know you really enjoyed your guided walk as I loved to unveil the city's secrets to such a brilliant companion! Thank you so much for your lovely comments!

It is difficult to write a bad review for a person that we spent 3 hours with. We don’t want to be mean so…Suffice to say, this tour with Ana is not recommended.

My daughter (young adult) and I had a fantastic tour of Coimbra. The city and university are steeped in history, and a private guide is the best way to learn more. We would highly recommend this trip.

Ana was amazing!!! She was very informative in an interesting and humorous way, and she helped the old city of Coimbra come alive. I truly enjoyed spending three hours with her, and could have spent much more time with Ana! She explained the aspects of the way the University came into being extremely well! Muito Obrigado Ana!
