    A minor point, but the restaurants chosen for group meals sometimes involved a significant journey to get to and from, didn't seem like a good choice before an early start the next day.

    Trip notes should be more honest about how hilly Lisbon and Porto are (''can be'' is an understatement) and the need to perhaps take a walking pole on the Sintra walk day. Not applicable to me as I am a walker but my wife had new hip in March and would... Show more

    Yes, On the vineyard trip we tasted port and the next day we did a port tour in Porto. I don t think it is necessary to have 2 Port tastings in one week.I would have preferred to taste more wines in the famous Douro region. Perhaps this could be changed.
    Explore! commented on this review
    thanks for your feedback, the port tastings have had great feedback so far so we want to keep both in. we'll look to see if there are more opportunities for additional wine tastings in future

    The level of walking and steep terrain needs emphasising. This was more of a walking holiday than the previous Explore Holidays I have been on and may be re-caregirized to the Walking trips rather than Cultural trips.
    Explore! commented on this review
    Thanks for the feedback, we'll take a look at how the walks are described and see if we can add some more information in.
