    Francisco was great - we enjoyed discussing the trip over the local wine. with him We also loved the pousadas. Unfortunately, you can't control the weather and we biked in a freak heat wave of 100+ degrees! We enjoyed exploring Portugal, which seems to be very up and coming for tourism. We probably wouldn't rate the trip as "fit" although we did take the short route the 2nd day because of the heat. Bikes were fine but could use a tune up for shifting.

    We were on the self-guided Biking/Wineries/Pousadas trip to. Portugal booked through pure Adventures but operated by local people in central Portugal. Our trip was supposed to start in Lisbon, but we asked to meet up in Evora, where the biking began. Felipe, our engaging, knowledgeable guide and organizer, spoke great English and sent us on our way.

    The trip exceeded my expectations! Portugal is beautiful. The Pousadas were wonderful and the service was excellent. The secondary roads that we cycled on were very quiet with little traffic. Very peaceful and lovely. The trip was well organized and Pure Adventures was very responsive to our inquiries/requests.

    The self guided trip - Pousadas and Alentejo vineyards was very enjoyable. The Pousadas exceeded our expectations with the rooms, pools and breakfasts all being a delight. My road bike was excellent and was a pleasure to ride. My wife Nancy had issues with the chain on her hybrid bike slipping while changing gears. The local staff Phillipe & Heder (spelling?) were excellent We passed on some comments on the drive back to Lisbon - notably that on day 1 the GPS was telling us to go in a direction where there was no road however we eventually asked a local for assistance in Rio de Mourinhos and with his assistance we got back on track. We also noted that the daily trip notes could contain more detailed information as to what to expect on the ride. On day 3 we note the option of a stop in Borba to undertake a wine tour. Nancy was tired at this point and noted that it would have be helpful if the notes stated that the ride from there to Vila Vicosa was on flat road although much of it being cobblestone. On day 4 the last 6.5kms included a climb of approximately 4kms up to Monsaraz. This information may have assisted Nancy to prepare. As a consequence Nancy was dreading the final day being 69kms to Evora however this was actually the easiest day of cycling. More information of this nature will assist potential participants in determining whether they have the ability to complete the trip

    All in all our tour to the wine region of Portugal was excellent. Our tour liaison, Bernardo, from Portugal Nature Trails was outstanding. He picked us up at exactly the time we expected and transported us in an efficient manner to our tour. Along the way he gave us great little insights and historical perspectives about Portugal. It was a pleasure to meet him. The hotels that we stayed at were spectacular. The efforts by the staff at every hotel to make our stay a pleasant one was more than we expected. This included things such as early check in after a hot day of riding, and early breakfast so that we could hit the road before the heat set in.Our bags were delivered to our room at every location. As we checked in they would also give us a brief history of the Pousada which was wonderful. Thank you so much. The bicycles that we rode were good, but it would have been nice to have an opportunity to rent a better (high end) bike. Serious road riders will gladly pay more for better bikes. It would have been nice if woman riders were provided with woman's seats on their bike. The routes chosen for our adventure, for the most part, were good. Quiet country roads that were safe and cycling friendly. However, there were a couple of places where the route needs to be reviewed and revamped for road bikers. On the first day, prior to reaching Estromoz, the GPS directed us through a small town and the route had us travelling a hilly dirt path through a vineyard. This route could not safely be completed on a road bike and was clearly designed for mountain bikers. We had to turn back and adjust our route to get back on the desired GPS path. On the second day, the route had us travelling through many small towns with lots of cobblestones. We understand that this a characteristic of european towns, but there were simply too many cobbles to make passage on a road bike enjoyable. On the last day, we travelled along a secondary country road prior to reaching Evora. This road has deteriorated in many places to gravel and rubble and an in experienced road bike rider would find it very difficult to navigate. We don't want to sound like we are just complaining, but, simply stating that the routes need to be reviewed and adjusted fairly frequently. All in all it was a great holiday and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pure Adventures or Portugal Nature Trails to our friends

    This self guided tour was great. We were met in Lisbon by the local representatives who drove us to our starting point about two hours distant. They set us up with our rented bikes, made sure everything fit and worked then gave us an orientation for the GPS/direction system, in addition to paper directions. We were also provided cell phones, which they programmed with the numbers for each phone in the ride so it was easy to call one another. We were picked up at the end and driven back to Lisbon and returned our equipment, which was done flawlessly. The ride was fun and the pousadas were very nice. Some of the roads were a little busier than we would have liked but overall ok. The bikes and equipment worked very well. I would highly recommend the company and the ride to all who have some experience and desire to ride bikes in Europe. It is a great way to see a section of a country.
