What people are saying about Guimarães Castle

Very interesting and very beautiful excursion, Braga really magnificent, all with a perfect schedule in a good car. The guide was polite nice but lacked a lot of knowledge and that did not explain anything in particular, although the treatment was correct ...

Beautiful ride! Guide Joana Teixeira is excellent. Besides being nice, she knows the background and drives very well.

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