I visited the old city of Braga, and Guimaraes. The tour guide was very nice, and spoke Spanish, and English to his guests. We visited a lot of places that had Catholic religious significance. We had a lunch in Braga, and at the end of the tour we visited a Castle in Guimaraes.

There's a bit more riding than desired, but the architectural and cultural beauty of the sites visited were a nice payoff. Even better, the full Portuguese lunch included was better food than you usually get on these types of tours.
