Excellent - we were very much looking forward to it, and it surpassed expectations. The travel company was a pleasure. From the beginning, they met my mom and me after we got through customs, and treated us like royalty. The private tours were wonderful overall.
Most enjoyable and memorable:1) Traveling with the tour guides. It felt as though we had a friend with us on the trip, albeit one who was an expert on the sites, the history, the culture, etc.2) The warmth of the Portuguese people. A few times, we got lost and asked random people in the street for directions. They were always friendly and patient. On one occasion, my mom (who is 92 years old) was having some difficulty on an escalator. So, a complete stranger pretty much ran to my mom to help her/make sure she wouldn't fall. 3) Lisbon - it's a beautiful city
I would not go to Porto. The weather there was for the most part cool and rainy -about 45-50 degrees, and pretty heavy rain at times. However, even if it had been sunny and warm, I found Porto to be a dark, depressing city. I would have preferred to spend a bit more time in Lisbon, and to visit other sites.
