We took this tour on the last day of our 4 days in Coimbra - most of the tour goes past recent and 20th Century office and apartment blocks. Really boring - take a walking tour they are 100% more interesting.

This is a great way of seeing the city, and listening to the narration of places of interest. Wasn't very impressed when it went through the modern area of the city. Just apartments and a shopping centre.
