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 ...

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