Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Climb aboard an air-conditioned coach in central Porto and receive an introduction to the city’s history from your guide. After a 1-hour drive, you’ll arrive in Guimarães — a town renowned for its cobbled streets and UNESCO-listed old town.

    During a walking tour, you’ll admire rows of candy-colored houses and see monuments that date back to the medieval ages. Historical landmarks abound in Guimarães Old Town: see, too, the 10th-century Guimarães Castle (Castelo de Guimarães) and the grand Paço Duques de Bragança.

    Then, explore independently for a short while before continuing to Braga — the oldest Christian city in Portugal. Famed for its extravagant Semana Santa (Holy Week) celebrations, the city combines contemporary chic with ancient charm. On a guided tour, you’ll see landmarks such as Bom Jesus do Monte Sanctuary and Portugal’s oldest cathedral, Sé Cathedral.

    Before returning to Porto in an air-conditioned coach, you’ll enjoy some relaxed free time to have lunch at your own expense.

    After your tour, you’ll receive a ticket for a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of Porto, valid for 48 hours from first use. Please see the Itinerary for a list a stops serviced.
