We had an amazing vacation in Portugal thanks to our agents. I contacted the company in August through Zicasso and after a few emails about us (family of 4 with active 6 and 12 year old boys who love history and nature) she planned an amazing trip. Our entire vacation was perfect and hassle free. I can't stress enough how everything we did was terrific and taken care of. There were no stresses for me (the planner in our family) about what we were doing, how we would get there, would we know where to go, when and where we would eat, how we would get back, etc. it was a true vacation for the parents and kids!!! Full of family time, great cultural experiences, lots of learning, and delicious meals. I'd also add that for the services provided (private everything, amazing tour guide, and very customized itinerary and schedule) the pricing was very reasonable. Again a completely stress free vacation re logistics and activities for the parents - so it was what a vacation should be - family time having new experiences together.
After meeting us at the airport like friends and bringing us to our hotel our adventure began. We had amazing private tours of everything and learned lots of history! Highlights for the kids were the Templar castle at Amoral, the donkey and pony ride near Sintra, the sailboat ride in Lisbon and the cooking class. Our oldest son is very interested in history and he learned so much from our guide (she was with us for 4 days in a row!) and now he has a newfound interest in the history of the Templar Knights. Highlights for the adults were Evora, the walking tour of Alfama, and the cooking class. In particular we loved hearing our guide explain all of the amazing cultural and historical aspects of everything we were seeing. It was an amazing trip and if we go to a place these agents cover in the future (Portugal or Spain) we will definitely use them again! They were awesome and the trip was terrific! We can't thank them enough for an amazing vacation!

Nothing. Maybe stay one more day for more time in Lisbon. Our first day there the boys were too tired to do much. After a restful first day - We spent a day in Evora, a day in Tomar, a day in Sintra and a day in Lisbon. It would have beeen nice to have an extra day in Lisbon. Now we will have to go back!
