About the tour

This is an original tour, we explore the left bank of Coimbra, the University and Historical Center.

It is a visit to the most historic area and one of the newest areas of the city in recent years (but which has its important historical and social charm in the city). Usually the tourist's don't visit the left bank, no tours there, and, so, they don't now some amazing places, traditions and histories (very famous in Portugal).

I want to give you a fuller and different perspective of the city.

We will talk about the history, society, and traditions of Coimbra, and Portugal...

Mis padres y yo y hicimos la visita turística en Coimbra con el guía João. Fue una visita muy completa en la que João nos contó muchas cosas interesantes sobre la ciudad y su historia. También nos dió consejos prácticos para aprovechar nuestra estancia al máximo. Tuvimos mucha suerte de encontrar a un guía que sabe tanto de su ciudad y tan implicado con su trabajo. Totalmente recomendable.

João ha demostrado ser un gran profesional explicando con todo detalle y visitando todo Coimbra (literal). Muy atento con todo el grupo y eso qué al principio explicaba en inglés y español. El mejor tour que he hecho en Portugal. 100% recomendable.
