Undoubtedly, a trip to Guimarães is THE EXCURSION to do from Porto. The Tour of Guimarães has everything to surprise and please every traveller. If you like calm and beautiful villages, castles and delicious cod, this is your tour.

It only will take one day for Guimarães to captivate you. We will go along the edge of the medieval wall which still stands in a town that is a World Heritage Site. We will get through its arches and porticoed streets and lose ourselves among 13th century towers and palazzos once owned by noble families who inhabited the town long time ago. Its crystallised galleries, a result of the colonial wealth, will take us to the most beautiful plazas in Portugal, where the display of power showed by the nobility and the Church blend in unique harmony. As if this were not enough, after stopping to taste Portugal’s finest delicacies, we will visit the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza, who were a powerful and wealthy family in Porto. We will also stroll on the walls and towers of the Castle of Guimarães and visit its tower of homage.

I was in Porto and came across the free tour by chance. I liked it so much that I also signed up for the medieval one and the visit to the wineries (one of the best investments of my life). I would never know so much about Porto and Portugal if it weren't for Paloma. I have traveled quite a bit and Paloma's personal stamp on her work makes her passion for the city she loves so contagious. His memory and explanations are simply prodigious. If you go to Porto, do not hesitate to try to visit the city with Paloma. You will not regret it.

Pablo Tuñón Laguna

Ana has been a fantastic guide, she has discovered the hidden Porto for me, telling the stories through its streets and monuments. I have loved his way of maintaining attention and tension at all times, a very good guide, he knows his tour very well and is very pleasant to listen to. He is definitely a tour and guide I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Paula RA

Great. Both the city tour in the morning with Guillermo, and the medieval Porto tour in the afternoon with Paloma, were very interesting. Very well explained and very entertaining. Highly recommended to get to know Porto and its history. Guillermo and Paloma, in addition, are very nice.

Wonderful tour that Paloma has given us in Porto, one of the best free tours I have done so far, the passion is undeniable, and only that is to be thanked but it also accompanies it with humor, knowledge and closeness, in addition to the didactic . My pleasure.

Aníbal González-Arintero Berciano

On Thursday we did the Porto free tour with Paloma, a machine (more guides like Paloma when you arrive in a city for the first time, please).
In the afternoon we repeated the "medieval" with her and on Friday we went to Gaia with Rocío, very nice.
We also met Guillermo, a crack.
Good luck to everyone and a hug, Aníbal and Sergio.
