Pick up from your accommodation towards Viana do Castelo to start your full-day private tour. Visit the elegant Praca da República, a lovely square of Renaissance buildings that includes the Chafariz fountain at its center and the striking Misericordia church that dates from 1589.

Viana Do Castelo + Ponte De Lima + Barcelos 02

The nearby Igreja Matriz or Se is the town’s parish church and cathedral and dates from the 15th century. The Museu de Arte Decorativas (formerly the City Museum) is located in an 18th-century palace and houses a collection of Viana ceramics, azulejos (tiles) and both religious and secular paintings.

The Castelo de Santiago da Barra at the mouth of the river was built by the Spanish king Filipe II to protect the port from pirates.

After this amazing route during your full-day private tour, we will stop in Ponte de Lima for sightseeing and lunch in a typical Portuguese food restaurant.

Viana Do Castelo + Ponte De Lima + Barcelos 03

Ponte de Lima is one of the most characterful and charming towns of northern Portugal, if not the whole of the country.

The town sits on the southern banks of the slow-flowing Lima River and this location has been the main river crossing since the Romans constructed a bridge in 1AD being one of the oldest towns of Portugal and this extensive history is reflected in the delightful assortment of ancient houses, pretty plazas and grand religious buildings found throughout the town.

Adding to this captivating mix of historical sights is a series of pretty flower gardens, interesting museums and stunning natural scenery, which all together create a wonderful destination.

Viana Do Castelo + Ponte De Lima + Barcelos 04

Next and final stop during your private tour is Barcelos, with the most famous symbol of Portugal – the colorful ceramic cockerel has its origins here. According to local legend it is reputed to have saved the life of a traveler wrongly accused of theft by crowing his innocence.

The full story is told on a 15th-century cross, found in ruins of the Palace of the Dukes of Braganca, destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. Pottery, be it of cockerels or household ware, continues to be the craft of note in this medieval walled market town, which lies on a plateau above the river Cavado, surrounded by beautiful green hills.

Your driver will drop you off at your accommodation and this will complete your Viana do Castelo, Ponte de Lima and Barcelos full-day private tour.

    What started off as a transfer from Lisbon to Porto turned into a dream vacation! I first contacted 4u2enjoy in 2019 and booked a driver for a transfer from Lisbon to Porto stopping along the way. Unfortunately, our trip was for 2020 and we had to cancel...4u2enjoy canceled our booking without any difficulty. Because of this hassle free experience, when we were ready to try again we contacted 4u2enjoy to make arrangements for a 2022 trip.

    After talking with Ricardo, what started as just a transfer became transfers, tours and hotels! Everything he suggested and every arrangement was spectacular! From the beautiful boutique hotels, winetastings, sailing trips and each driver was beyond our expectations! Each experience and location was special and unique.

    The only "kink", which really wasn't a kink was using a credit card....this was an issue on our side. Ricardo was great figuring things out and problem solved!

    Ricardo went above and beyond! Every detail was taken care of. This vacation, starting in Lisbon, then to Porto, Douro Valley and ending in Cascais was truly made exceptional by the hard work of Ricardo. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending 4u2enjoy!

    Ricardo....thank you! I look forward to my next 4u2enjoy (aka, designed by Ricardo) holiday.

    A fantastic experience with great, customized service. I wanted to squeeze in a trip to Monchique from the Algrave. Ricardo was responsive and accommodated my schedule. Miguel was a fabulous guide and was professional and kind. I love being able to support a small business while receiving excellent service. Customized luxury at its best. I will rebook with them when I return.

    Ricardo helped us preplan a wonderful itinerary. Jose Anthony, our driver, was knowledgeable, pleasant, accommodating and flexible. He introduced us to people and places during our 3 days spent with him, sharing with us the history and culture of Portugal. My adult son, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would reach out to Ricardo and Jose Anthony in the future.
