Discover the cradle of our independency! Guimarães is a small town in the northern region that preserves the medieval style and structure. In this visit, you will understand the history and roots of the portuguese! 
Guimarães is deply related to the most important events in Portugal's foundation, and also our first capital back on the 12th century. Since then, the city has kept its structure, including the castle and fortified wall intact until the 18th century. Today, countless pieces that tell the history of Portugal are still very present and visible to everyone.

On this Private Tour you get guided visits + paid entrances on the most iconic monuments in the country, but also discover true treasures that few residents know about! You will enjoy a traditional lunch in one of the most iconic restaurants/taverns in the city, and on the final part of the visit we take a journey to the highest point in about 40km, from where you will have contact with the greenest area of the surroundings, with a fantastic view over the city of Guimarães.
