RM Tour was born from the idea of transforming visits to the University of Coimbra into a unique experience, transforming the guided tour into a pleasant experience of knowledge and cultural enrichment in a way that is interesting. Therefore, we always seek in our company to join the beautiful history of the University of Coimbra with the present and its customs that still permeate our institution today. This was all made possible by the training we have in the areas of history, sociology and tourism. Our collaborators are former students of the University of Coimbra which brings to our services a great appreciation and knowledge of it. If you like the idea of continuing your visit to the city of Coimbra, you can book our other tour, just search on Tripdavisor for "Guided visit to the University and city of Coimbra"
