We did a private tour to Coimbra and Aveiro with Touch Tours in the first days after the reopening post Corona on 24 June. A super positive experience. Spacious luxurious vehicle, super punctual and caring guide called Tiago, full respect for the new corona safety measures - I travelled alone with my 3 teenage children. The commutation with Touch Tours (André) from start to finish was impeccable. The company listens to what you want to do. We are very satisfied.

Enjoyed our tour guide immensely! Such a nice guy with a bounty of historical knowledge. He was able to answer the majority of our questions, had a great personality, and we enjoyed our day trip as a result.
The only reason I didn’t give this company LESS stars is because we had an outstanding tour guide. A narrow car with 5 seats (including the driver) is way too small and very uncomfortable for 5 adults.
We sat hip to hip, and shoulder to shoulder (had to bend them forward to fit), we were physically sore by the end of the day.
Careful when booking tours for a party of 4, as you may end up in a car that is too small - and you won’t know until they show up.

Dears, thank you very much for your feedback. It is very important for us. We really appreciate your consideration regarding our guide, he feels very very happy :) thank you. Regarding the car, we do understand your feedback. Let us kindly share with you we believe our small group and personalized tours are much more enjoyable than those overly big group excursions. In this regard we provide short distance tours in comfortable Mercedes Car or Mini Van. By our five years experience and respective feedback we consider this kind of 5 people vehicle is appropriate for 1 guide plus 4 adults. But we do respect your opinion and off course we will focus our full attention on this specific subject. Again, thank you. We hope to welcome you again :)

Our guide, Tiago, was prompt in picking us up from the hotel, was an excellent driver and showed us the university at Coimbra and then Portugal's Venice, Aveiro. The tour was conducted in a less than perfect weather day, but Taigo was accommodating and made sure we saw all that was available. He had umbrellas waiting for us. Tiago gave us time to explore on our own, and even treated us to coffee and a regional pastry at the end of the tour. Personally, I did not find the attractions to be that exciting and Aveiro does not compare to Venice. Having said that, Tiago and Touch Tours did a great job, I just think the tour was not my cup of tea. I would certainly look into using them for their other tour offerings.

Tiago took us on this lovely tour of Aveiro and Coimbra. He was very punctual and accommodating and the car was very comfortable. We were "tiny bit" hungover and it was so great to have someone manage all the details and be able to just wander around beautiful spaces and sights all day.

We spent a wonderful half day with Andre our guide. He has a fantastic knowledge of Portugese history and today’s Portugal. He took us to Aveiro in the comfort of his Mercedes car. We went on the gondola ride, visited the fish markets went to the cathedral and tasted the “ Aveiro egg delight” with a coffee. After that we went to the ceramic factory ( Actually the town created for the factory) Andre was very informative and offered his assistance with all our questions. The tour was very relaxed and we had plenty of time to take in the areas attractions. Andre would have taken us to wherever we asked. Any tour is only as good as the guide. This tour was brilliant. Many thanks to Andre.

We had a wonderful small group tour with Tanya, visiting the beautiful Coimbra (with a lovely traditional lunch in a local restaurant), Costa Nova and Aveiro. Tanya was lovely, personable and an excellent guide. She answered all our questions about the various places we visited and make us feel very comfortable. Thank you, Tanya!

Miguel was very nice, funny and timely. We visited University of Coimbra, had a nice lunch of suckling pig (at his recommendation) and took a boat tour in Aveiro.

Our tour guide Miguel was a true gentleman and a professional. Miguel is very knowledgeable, accommodating and attentive. Our tour began with our journey to Portugal’s first capital of Coimbra. It is also a university town. Beautiful campus, library, and chapel. Great town to explore. We stopped at a beautiful restaurant, Metas dos Leitoes, for traditional regional lunch of a succulent pig, potatoes, salad, wine and dessert. It was delectable! Then off to Aveiro for a traditional boat ride and brief tour of the town. Miguel got us one the most delicious treats ever called “Ovos Moles”, absolutely delicious! All in all it was a wonderful day. Again, so glad Miguel was our guide.

On September 6, 2018, we went on a private tour to Coimbra and Aveiro. Our guide was Tiago and at 9 AM he was waiting for us in front of our hotel.
Our first stop was the beautiful Coimbra which followed by exquisite lunch at Rei Dos Lei Toes. During lunch, Tiago introduced us to traditional Portuguese food and traditions.
After lunch, we went to Aveiro and enjoyed a boat ride on the Canal.
Tiago was an excellent guide, lovely, personable. He answered all our questions about the various places we visited and make us feel very comfortable.

At the end of the tour, we were dropped at our hotel.

If you need a tour guide look for Tiago from Touch Travel.

Eleonor, Alex, Emma and Peter.
