What people are saying about Braga Cathedral

Daniel Mota was an excellent guide. He’s very knowledgeable and his driving is very good. We really enjoyed the tour to Braga. We will definitely request for Daniel on our next visit and recommend him to our friends if they visit Porto.

It is a bit expensive for my point of view, considering that there is no entry included.

Already tried the app in Porto, and works great here as well.

We loved Braga and all the little stories that it provides.

Delightful experience, try it you will not regret.
