Jorge was so helpful when our plans had to be changed at the last minute because of a train strike. The Segway training was excellent for a nervous rider in a large empty car park. He also made me feel safe out in the town. His love of his city was evident and he shared so much information about its history, ancient and recent. We particularly liked the tour (on foot) in the cathedral. He also gave excellent tips about where to eat later in the day. One of the best tours we have ever done.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the sites of Braga, experienced by the fun of Segways. The tour guide was brilliant with a quick training session given before we set off. He was very attentive and ensured we were all comfortable before heading off. A brilliant and fun way to see Braga. Thank you.

The visits were well prepared and organised. Jorge has a profound knowledge of History and Culture of Braga and Portugal. His presentations were very interesting with personal touch. I visited with him the city centre with Cathedral, Bom Jesus and Tibães. He is very friendly nice person.

Last winter, we toured with Jorge around Braga and the neighboring towns. He has a deep understanding of the culture and history in this area, fluently speaks English and was able to accommodate our group of 9 including some kids. He arranged the days to meet our needs and expectations. We wish Jorge and the team at Braga tours the best and you would be lucky to spend time with him and learn about the rich heritage of this area.
