Very personal treatment, guide knows an answer to every question.

We were very satisfied with our tour. Communication was easy as the tourguide dominates English, Spanish and German. He gave us also tips to save up money during the lunch break. If you are interested in culture and landscapes, this is the right tour for you! Whine tasting was really nice and interesting.

Für Naturfreunde und Weintrinker ein toller Tag

Wir hatten einen sehr netten Guide, der deutsch konnte, die uns einige schöne Punkte außerhalb und im Umland von Lissabon zeigte. Wir waren eine Gruppe von sechs und hatten deshalb einen Guide für uns und konnten so sehr individuell mal länger mal kürzer bleiben. Wir haben sehr schöne Landschaften und in der Jahreszeit November auch grün gesehen, sind zu einem Weingut gefahren. Eine Abenteuerstrecke, aber es hat sich gelohnt. Auch die Fahrt zum Atlantik und das Essen in einem Lokal direkt mit Meerblick hat unser Guide super ausgesucht. Das ist aber nicht im Preis! Sie wollte was günstigeres aussuchen. Wir wollten aber schön essen und das haben wir Vorspeise Hauptgericht Getränke und einen Espresso danach und mit 7 Personen EUR 130 ausgegeben ( teuer hihi ). Danach eine tolle Weinführung und vom Jesus über die Brücke vom 25. April zurück. Einfach gelungen. Wenn jetzt noch das Wetter toll gewesen wäre, dann perfekt, aber das kann man nicht planen.

Die Tour war einfach toll.

Wir waren eine Gruppe von 6 Frauen. Die Tour war toll. Wir haben viel über Land und Leute kennengelernt. Ein super kompliment an unsere Reiseführerin Maria. Sie hat fast alle Fragen beantwortet. Und wir hatten viele fragen. Wir haben viel Spaß mir ihr (und wir glauben, auch Maria mit uns) gehabt.
