I highly recommend the tour. I was lucky to be the only one to have the tour with Joao this day and he was very kind not to cancel it and show me the gardens. He was very informative not only about the gardens but also shared with me a lot of historical details. Thanks Joao!

A pesar de que éramos sólo dos realizamos el tour con todo lujo de detalles e interés por parte del guía. Duró más de lo previsto y se notaban sus conocimientos de la materia

Great tour! Coimbra has very beautiful gardens with great stories. João is a fantastic guide. He is polite, he is a knowledgeable man! Throughout the tour, we talked about many things (geography, history, politics, ).

He explained to me, also the history and traditions of Coimbra!!!
