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

Portugal's historical sites are pretty amazing and having a small group and an excellent driver/ guide facilitated access. The experience that I enjoyed the most was our stay in a tiny village where we learnt how to milk goats and make bread. A wonderful experience with warm hosts and at times hilarious results.

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

Learn a few words of Portuguese -always welcomed - even though English is spoken everywhere. Try the different local foods.

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

Definitely. Especially the two country stays one in a beautiful family manor and the other in a simple and very comfortable farm house.

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

Very highly. The small group and bus with experienced driver/ guide allowed for flexibility. The mix of large cities, local towns with their own history and charm and country stays / wine tastings kept everyone very happy.

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

We stayed in a quaint guesthouse in Penela- a village in the Schist Mountains. We milked goats, made bread, and learned how to make cheese. Later we ate the fruits of our labor at dinner. What a wonderful day!!

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

Be prepared to walk. It is not strenuous, but you do a lot of walking. We loved it, since you get more up front and close to what you came there to see.

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

Yes. We went to out off the beaten path sites so you felt the local people benefited fro us being there.

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

Outstanding. A great combination of urban and country- a little something for everyone.
