    49 passengers ---- too many ----like herding cattle. Listening to a guide through a palace or etc.----they may be a room ahead so the commentary did not always "fit". It really was a wine and food tour which I did not sign up for. The options were emphasized as being the most important part of the tour and very costly. Trafalgar could do better. A chuckle by many of us new and veterans of Trafalgar was when some were given tapes as loyal customers and others penalized ---did not receive the tapes---- for being first timers. Getting up very early most days, getting to next hotel late and then dinner and to bed to do the same the next day. Ugh! But then I have travelled the world with Gadventures so am spoiled!

    Pedro Pinto was the perfect tour director - a great historian for my husband and a foodie for me. We went on our honeymoon and he made sure everything was perfect, including champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Portugal is beautiful and this tour provides a great overview of its diversity and beauty.

    Was a wonderful tour at a nice easy pace...loved how it covered all areas of Portugal and not just the tourist meccas. Pedro the tour guide was the best ever. His knowledge and passion for Portugal made it an amazing experience.
