These travel planners were wonderful hosts! Because we visited in the "off-season" they were able to upgrade many of our tours and hotel rooms. They were also very knowledgeable guides -- we learned so much and were able to experience so much! Everything was exactly as we planned. Everyone went above and beyond, making for a very special vacation -- in spite of the often rainy weather! We so appreciate everything this company did for us and can HIGHLY recommend their services.
There were many! Our agent got us front row seats for our Fado night at a traditional Fado restaurant, enhancing that memorable experience. She also made sure we could visit the synagogue in Lisbon (a last minute request) where our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, with a great sense of humor. She also gave us the best stories to take home. All guides were very accommodating and flexible. In Evora, our guide arranged an unexpected wine tasting at a local family owned shop. There we found the best white wines we've ever tasted. The only down side was that we then had to find room in our luggage for 2 additional bottles! At our request she also took us to a local cork factory, which turned out to be a fascinating experience. Our Porto tour guide took us to an amazing port wine factory where we got a complete education regarding all types of port wines along with an excellent tasting opportunity. For me, the #1 most memorable experience was in Tomar, where we visited the Knights Templar castle -- truly breathtaking.
Only two things:
1) Spend a few more days there (our trip was 10 days long), so we could visit more of this beautiful country.
2) Get more cooperation from the weather gods to get more sun than rain while visiting.
In all cases, I would ask this company to make all arrangements for us. They are the best!
