Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    To say that Renan is enthusiastic about history would be a vast understatement. This was the best thing we did in Coimbra and is well worth it! I booked through TripAdvisor, and we received the usual email confirmation, also avoiding the awkward purchasing of entry tickets in a different location. Renan texted me the morning of our tour via WhatsApp confirming our meeting place and had all the necessary tickets in hand. We were 15 minutes early, but he was earlier :).

    Renan was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about political/architectural/art history and the synthesis of all of the above. There was not a detail left undescribed nor a question he could not answer. My husband is a historic preservation architect with an encyclopedic knowledge of history and he was very impressed. Renan brought the history alive with his vibrant and enthusiastic descriptions of the events surrounding the building, the iconography, and architecture.

    Hot tip: after your tour, go the the Loggia Restaurant which is accessed by the lobby of the adjacent Coimbra Museum for tea or coffee or a meal. It has a big sunny terrace overlooking Coimbra.

    This was another wonderful and worthwhile tour. Jose Pinho served as our guide and driver. He was very attentive, friendly and informative. He provided great service and an excellent educational experience. Costa Nova, Aveiro, and Coimbra - all were worth the effort. We will use them again when we return to Portugal. Thank you.

    Philipe lives i n Coimbra and went to college at the University. He lives and breathes Coimbra! He is very knowledgable about its history and traditions, and he enthusiastically delivers a great tour to show it all to you. We really enjoyed both Phillipe and his tour!

    Excellent tour. Rodrigo was so warm and friendly. He was fun to spend the day and he gave us so much history. This tout is an excellent way to see the sights between. Lisbon and Porto.

    My afternoon tour of Conimbriga and related sites, with Alfredo, was an unexpected positive surprise. I’ve always enjoyed visiting Roman ruins, but I didn’t expect how rich and extensive Conimbriga turned out to be. Alfredo was the perfect guide: knowledgeable, smart, companionable, and a great and careful driver. My memories from this visit will be a highlight of my first trip to Portugal.

    Our tour guide, Manuel, was very informative and pleasant, and answered questions about any topic about Fatima and Portugal that I had. This helped make the two hour van ride (with the other tour members) go very quickly.
    We walked through the village and saw the homes of the three children, then went to the area where the apparitions occurred. We were given directions on what was where (church, sanctuary, candles, etc.) and had more than 90 minutes to explore on our own. I bought the "optional lunch" and it was delicious -- well worth it! Back in the van and we went to Coimbra and explored this university town, then enjoyed 45 minutes of time on our own to explore and have an espresso.
    I would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking to experience the peace of Fatima and learn a bit more about Portugal. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Highly recommend! Fascinating place with such an interesting history. What’s more is that the guide, Alfredo holds a wealth of knowledge about the area because he’s spent years visiting and exploring these mountains. He’s also easy going, friendly and a safe and responsible driver. I feel lucky to have had this experience.

    My husband and I, had a great trip with Paulo to The university of Coimbra and its vicinity, the Chapel and the library,then we went to Aveiro and took the boat Ride which he helped us to get at a discounted rate, we visited the fish market as well and we had a walk in the city streets.
    As for Paulo he is one of a kind, he is very experienced and he helped us in choosing the souvenirs and the food we had at lunch.
    He showed us the best spots in both cities where we can capture unforgettable photos.
    Great trip, great Guide highly recommended

    We had a great time on this tour with Sara. We got to see the key sights around the university and learn about it's history and some of the traditions. We'd highly recommend it!
    I also went with Sara to the Roman ruins at Conimbriga which was another worthwhile experience. It's amazing to see what has been preserved both within the ruins as well as the museum.

    Great opportunity to see some nature and get out of the city. Host was awesome. Saw lots of wildlife. Got a bit drenched on our attempt at hike but sun came out and dried us off. Highly recommend this tour.

    Our family very much enjoyed the visit to Aveiro to ride the boats and our guide was very friendly and happy to answer our questions. He took us to the beach at Casta Nova and taught us a little bit about the history of the area. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

    Great background and introduction to both Coimbra and Portugal. Historical information combined with small nuances around the sites and the people behind them made for a wonderful afternoon!
