Braga and Guimarães Private Tour

By Plainsight
About
The North of Portugal is green, but it is also history, tradition and modernity. Minho is the river that borders the north of the country, but also the land of a wine that only has a green name and that remains in the memory of those who drink it. To discover this region is to get involved in Guimarães - a World Heritage city since 2001 - with its symbolic castle and cradle of Portugal, it is to walk its streets and feel the history. It is visiting Braga with its Cathedral, feeling that the Romans also passed through there and being part of a modern city. It means going up to the Church of Bom Jesus and allowing yourself to be spiritually involved in its chapels and gardens. Minho is to feel the landscape, the history, the culture, the tradition and the Portuguese being.

          A great day traveling from Porto to Lisbon.
          We had a great day with our driver Ricardo. We went up to Nazare and Obidos. Ricardo was very knowlegable about the history of Portugal His english was great so we had no trouble understanding him. If you have a choice request him for your driver. You won't be sorry.

          Perfect tour with port wine tasting and a trip from Lisbon to Porto
          Our tour guides were Ricardo, Luis and Pedro. All of them were very knowledgeable and pleasant to be around them. The cars are new and premium. All of the places we visited had top notch food and service. The places were very beautiful and tastefully picked.

          Delightful ‘Green’ Douro Valley guided tour.
          Our tour with Richard was delightful:the scenery was spectacular and our multilingual English speaking guide/driver was engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If you only have a day to taste the Douro Valley, we highly recommend Plainsight! To make us feel better about using a car to travel distances from Porto, a Tesla was our mode of transport.

          Amazing experience and transfer!
          Hugo is the absolute best! My wife and I were picked up seamlessly at our hotel in Porto and stopped in Nazeré and Obidos on our way down to Lisbon. Would highly recommend both. Hugo was full of interesting stories and fun facts about Portugal and our two stops. The day felt like we were getting a private tour from a close friend and by the end of the day we were sad to say goodbye. The day was absolutely one of the best parts of our entire trip to Portugal and we couldn’t have been more impressed and satisfied with the entire experience. 10/10

          Exceptional Driver/Car Service
          We traveled to Porto and Spain for our 25th Anniversary. Hugo picked us up from our hotel in Porto and drove us to Lisbon. He gave us the options of two stops in between Porto and lisbon. We ended up going to Fatima and Obidos. By our side, most of the time, he shared history with us, and told his stories about both stops. He allowed us time for lunch, which we wanted to have with him, because he was such a great driver/guide. We are big on customer service, and to be perfectly honest, Hugo exceeded our expectations. he went above and beyond, he was friendly, professional, accommodating, and just very passionate about what he does. Hands-down, with highly recommend Hugo if you are in need of car service in Porto.

          Antonio - guide of the summer!
          Antonio Maria from Porto, Portugal is a wonderful guide! We were on a mother/daughter mini trip in Porto. Antonio picked us up in a very clean Mercedes Sedan and we spent the entire day together in the Douro Valley. It is obvious Antonio loves his work and we were so comfortable and happy with him. The roads in Douro are very windy and he made sure we were content often asking and checking in with us. We were looking very specifically to see as much as possible in our allotted time and our goals and wishes were achieved because of Antonio!

          Fabulous experience, with or without kids
          We had a perfect day with Hugo, who helped create and then deliver a wonderful time for four of us adults plus a toddler. Highly accommodating for travelers with children, which is so hard to find! He even picked out the correct size child car seat and was so understanding and relaxed with us and so sweet to the little one. The wine tasting at the Quinta Hugo took us to was sublime! If I could give more than 5 stars I could! Hugo was so flexible in scheduling with us and let us take our time and still fit in everything we wanted to see/do, with a smile! Great conversations, great with the toddler too, and such a relaxing day! A highlight of our trip for sure!

          Enjoyable safe ride from Porto to Lisbon
          Comfortable, very clean car, Mercedes station wagon and a very safe ride from Porto to Lisbon. Driver spoke perfect English and took time to talk about sites and Portuguese culture. We stopped at Aveiro and Fatima and enjoyed both places. The private transfer was with the money and no hassle with bags or finding places. We enjoyed the trip and would do it again.

          Amazing trip to the Douro Valley
          Hugo gave us an amazing tour of the Douro Valley. We traveled with our 4 year old daughter and he always made sure we were comfortable and taken care of. We took a boat ride in Pinhão, then visited a quinta near Peso da Régua. Afterwards Hugo took us to an amazing viewpoint to see the Douro Valley. It was absolutely breathtaking. Finally we stopped in Amarante to take a break in a cafe and visited the bridge and church. We had a wonderful time and thank you for the great memories.

          Excellent tourguide and tours
          We had 3 daytours with our guide/driver Antonio (1. Coimbra and Aveiro / 2. Santiago de Compostella, /3. Braga & Guimares). He was very helpful, punctual,humorous, and he learned us a lot about Portugal, Porto, it's history and all the places we visited. He is a fantastic driver and a very good guide. We loved our tours with him and feeld as real friends. Thanks Antonio and good luck !

          Unforgettable
          Despite having become exceedingly popular and a bit crowded in recent years, Porto is worth a long visit and Ricardo made sure we would experience the city in the best possible way, with a local whose wealth of knowledge about the history of this vibrant city made it so enjoyable. The wine tasting included a visit to one of the lesser known Port Wine brands, an up and coming enterprise rooted in tradition that caters to smaller groups and allows for a personalized and fact-filled experience, coupled with some excellent wine!

          Smooth and fascinating
          A short trip, for American standards, but one that showcased the beauty and the differences between the North and South of this small country, a journey surprisingly filled with History and fascinating facts. Extremely comfortable ride and excellent conversation. Thank you!

          Fantastic tour with a terrific guide
          The Douro region is spectacular in any circumstances, but to experience it as we did in this tour, guided by knowledgeable and attentive people as the Plainsight crew made it all the more memorable. Thank you!

          Amazing time in Porto!
          Forget France, and rediscover real amazing wines and an even better landscapes in the Douro Valley. We enjoyed a time to never forget including a boat tour on the beautiful Douro. All day no worries, everything organised in to perfection. Thank you for the amazing day! We will be back for sure.

        Ricardo was a wonderful guide for today's fascinating tour. He arrived on time in a high end vehicle and with plenty of cold water for a hot summer day. He is loaded with facts about Portugal's history and the history of the two cities we visited. He was respectful of my pace, attentive, thoughtful, and just a pleasure to spend the day with. We plussed up our experience with a traditional Portuguese lunch, for which he made an excellent recommendation. If I return to Porto he will be the first person I'll call for more city and surrounding area explorations. Highly recommended!

        Our visit to the historical sites in Braga, with its many churches and peculiar character, and Guimaraes, the literal birthplace of this fascinating country was filled with interesting stories, great food and delightful company.

        a day with Ricardo, a very knowledgeable guide.
        Ricardo is a very courteous, affable person, attentive to the needs of his guests.
        He picked us up at the hotel, with a comfortable, clean car, with a bottle of water for each of us.
        Excellent vehicle handling. Be careful to propose breaks for breaks and need to go to the services. Explains the characteristics of places in a precise and engaging way.

        We visited in Guimaraes:
        Paco Duques
        Castelo
        Praça Oliveira
        Praça Toural

        and in Braga:
