1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It was very exciting to see the western coast after beginning on the eastern coast and cycling for several days. It felt like a great accomplishment, and our guides were great at helping us see the different cultures and feel proud of our progress.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be mindful of the heat when booking a trip and prepare yourself for cycling long days in hilly terrain.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I feel that the trip benefited local people. We ate at family-run restaurants that our local guide selected and stayed at small hotels.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was wonderful. It was a fantastic combination of exertion and relaxation, not to mention stunning views and great company. This was my first cycling tour, and I am looking forward to when I might be able to schedule another tour like this one in the future.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

No one particular part because the whole holiday was a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable experience. The cycling guide, Pedro, and the back-up transport driver, Jaoao, could not have been more enthusiastic or attentive to ensure that we all enjoyed the holiday to the full: which we all did. It was a very interesting and varied holiday with the contrasts of Porto, Atlantic coast, villages, Obidos and ending up in Lisbon.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Plenty of sunscreen required and a reasonable level of fitness. Most of the route is easy but there are one or two inclines that catch you out but, as most of our group did, you can walk up them.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The holiday certainly benefitted local people and there must have been an almost zero impact on local environment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Simply - first class. Any glitches, which is bound to happen, were of a minir nature and quickly sorted out.
