Excellent tour
LizzyP07
, Aug 2019
This tour was well planned. Marina was an amazing tour director. She provided lots of great information throughout the tour and was always helpful and full of energy. The bus was comfortable and the driver Juan was great. The only down side was the hotel in Porto. The rooms could use updating and it was far from the city. However, Marina recommended an excellent family owned restaurant nearby with tasty food at a very economical price .

Most enjoyable tour enhanced by an excellent guide''Jamie''who was most informative, helpful and a great sense of humour. the two hotels were good , the hotel in Lisbon was a little away from the City centre and the lifts were slow but had great food.and comfortable room. The Fatima hotel was only 2 minute walk to the Religious centre of Fatima. Several villages visited along the way were historically and visually of interest. The included breakfasts were adequate. We agreed that for the cost, the tour was very reasonably priced. We would recommend it to anyone. Peter and Lorraine

It didn't help that our bus broke down at our first stop and we had to wait for a couple of hours for another bus to arrive. That meant we arrived in Lisbon very late which made it a very long day and we missed out on that nights entertainment. The rest of the tour was fine with the guide and bus driver being very good.

We had an excellent tour guide...
Emmanuel F
, May 2016
We had an excellent tour guide Ismael and driver Cata both were very friendly and helpful. We did not get great directions for picking up the tour 'Bus station at Plaza Orient', but this was our second tour with a local tour company, so we knew where to go. The first day was quite boring apart from a single interesting stop in Trujillo the other stops were 'toilet stops' and included lunch at 'petrol stations' along the highway. I understand why the tour has to do this it is a long drive from Madrid to Lisbon, but I would have stayed longer in Trujillo to include lunch, and ditch the cafeteria food stop. We also did not get our initially requested 'double bed' at the hotels despite the tour guide having this 'paperwork', and the Hotel Lutécia front desk staff were dismissive apparently, 'double' means two people, not a double bed. Breakfast was moderate fare, and dinners were not included, although given the bland fare provided on the other tour hotel food for US tourists?, this was a mixed blessing, permitting us to sample local more delicious fare. Days 2 and 3 were much better, with a good morning city tour of Lisbon and then free time day 2, and then a full day of site visits on day 3 Óbidos, Alcobaça, Nazaré, Batalha. Day 4, a free day in Fatima, was personally speaking too long a time to spend there, but others with a more religious inclination may disagree. Day 5, another long trip back to Madrid, was better than Day 1, including a stop in Cáceres with options for lunch. Overall, a tour I would recommend, but that I would modify slightly if I was arranging. We had a small group, and that made it also a friendlier experience.

The Tour Director was not detailed in instructions. There was day, we did not know what time the pick up was. I tried to text but no reply. I just wished that the group be concentrated with one language so time is not wasted in speaking in different languages. This comment applies to all tours!

, Aug 2015
Guide in Madrid and on to Lisbon was just OK - he didn't seem too interested or concerned. Guide in Lisbon to end of tour was excellent can't remember her name. I did, however, find it very annoying that she had to say everything in 3 languages so there was a great dealing of talking always going on.

ALBERTO LUIS C

Muy buena experiencia de viaje. Sobresaliente la guía española que acompañó todo el recorrido. Muy satisfecho con la categoría y comodidad de los hoteles. Muy correcto, educado y responsable el conductor del bus. Lo negativo fue el proceder, la intolerancia, y la falta de buena voluntad de la guía de turismo en Lisboa.
