A Recent Review of this tour

What a journey that Augusto took us on! The cathedrals were most interesting. Imagine climbing a spiral staircase to the roof of one with a grand view of Evora. The small back street restaurant to which Augusto took us for a typical Portuguese lunch was fabulous. Saw a lot of the countryside, cork and olive farms, the bridges over the estuary at Lisbon, just to name a few memorable sights on the trip itself.
