A Recent Review of this tour

We were 7 in our group and all first time travelers to Portugal. We all enjoyed Carla's tour very much! Carla is very knowledgeable about Portugal's history and her insights made the tour very interesting. We liked that she talked about the areas we were driving through and chose stops that were significant to the city and some with excellent vistas. Her pacing was good, allowing us to appreciate what Lisbon had to offer and to return to the areas we found most interesting in the following days.
