We had an amazing time. Our first time with any kind of group trip and it was so much better than we could have hoped. The trip moved at a good speed, rarely too long at any one place but always enough time to savor the sights. An incredible local guide in Andreia Lopo. She was so well-informed about all the sights and had excellent language skills. She did not talk constantly and only with perfectly relevant information. She knew when to give things a break and give us a rest and when it was time to pick up the pace! She answered every single question we had and if she didn't know the answer immediately, she always made a point of finding the answer and giving it to us later. She was also always very professional and always made a point of eating and socializing separately from the group, yet was always warm and friendly. All the accommodations were excellent and so comfortable. The meals went above and beyond our expectations.
