Excellent trip!

On this excursion we learned a lot about the real origin and history of Portugal. Visiting the cake bakery was a unique experience! The driver and tour guide looked after us so lovingly that it was touching. We were impressed by the sights: great buildings and churches, well-kept parks and grounds!

We could not take the tour for a sudden illness but in some ways our guide was very attentive to take us to a service station and then back to our hostel ..

Fantastic!

This was a wonderful experience. Our driver/guide Daniel was knowledgeable, polite, fun, and he made sure that everyone in the group felt good by answering all our questions and giving us a very informative and excellent tour. I would recommend anytime!
