What to expect
Climb aboard an air-conditioned coach in central Porto and receive an introduction to the city’s history from your guide. After a 1-hour drive, you’ll arrive in Guimarães — a town renowned for its cobbled streets and UNESCO-listed old town. During a walking tour, you’ll admire rows of candy-colored houses and see monuments that date back to the medieval ages. Historical landmarks abound in Guimarães Old Town: see, too, the 10th-century Guimarães Castle (Castelo de Guimarães) and the grand Paço Duques de Bragança. Then, explore independently for a short while before continuing to Braga — the oldest Christian city in Portugal. Famed for its extravagant Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations, the city combines contemporary chic with ancient charm. On a guided tour, you’ll see landmarks such as Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary and Portugal’s oldest cathedral, Sé Cathedral. Before returning to Porto in an air-conditioned coach, you’ll enjoy some relaxed free time to have lunch at your own expense. After your tour, you’ll receive a ticket for a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of Porto, valid for 48 hours from first use. Please see the Itinerary for a list a stops serviced.

Juggling 4 languages made tour boring and promise of free port was misleading
Sep 2017 • Couples
We took the "Guimarães and Braga Day Trip from Porto Including Porto Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour".

While our guide was clearly knowledgeable, and the tour locations were interesting, she had to conduct the tour in four languages. An impressive feat, but it meant that three quarters of the time was effectively wasted as she repeated the same information.

Not the guide’s fault, but certainly something the company should mention in advance.

We were also disappointed with the hop-on/off bus tour. The tour map pointed out places where ticket-holders could get free port tastings. One was described as a "10-minute" walk.

It took us 25 minutes to walk through a pretty unpleasant neighbourhood (we're a young couple and fast walkers).

When we got to the tasting venue, we were told that the particular ticket we had didn't entitle us to a free tasting.

This information was, admittedly, printed in the leaflet - but in small writing and on the other side of the sheet to the map itself.

If you're going to lure travellers on a 25-minute walk on the promise of free booze, you should probably make clear that not everyone will be eligible!
