Enjoy the best of both worlds by combining a guided walking tour with free time to explore Guimarães, the historic ‘cradle of the Portuguese nation’.

Admire the green hills of the Minho Province as you travel north and stop for photos in the grounds of the imposing 10th century Guimarães Castle and the monumental Palace of the Dukes of Bragança.

Follow your guide as you appreciate the old city (an UNESCO World Heritage Site) in the best way possible – up close! Stroll through the ancient, narrow streets lined with medieval houses and explore picturesque squares.

The old tower of Torre da Alfandega is found on a pretty avenue lined with gardens, cafés and art and craft shops – the perfect area for you to spend free time exploring.
