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

Staying in the beautiful Pousada at Guimaraes, meeting a variety of friendly people on the singing, guitar and photography courses, the singing course itself and working on challenging music, led by Mary King, singing in the final concert in Guimaraes.

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

Book it!

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

It benefited local hotel staff and also, by performing in Guimaraes it benefited the audience culturally. I travelled to and from the venue by ferry and train so slightly less carbon footprint. Did not seem to support conservation.

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

Excellent - good value for money, great company, organisers and leaders, very relaxed (the big swimming pool helped!) a beautiful location (though my only slight moan is that it was quite a way from the town, but this was a good excuse to swim, lounge by the pool reading a book and exploring the lovely gardens!)Food was great and wine abundant. A really enjoyable and rewarding singing holiday - I hope to go on many more.
