Date: Jan 31/20

Orquidea was a superb guide, intelligent, knowledgeable, and personable. If we had already seen a site or a site was difficult to access, she immediately offered an alternative. We take guides not only to see the sites but also to get a flavour of the city or country. Orquidea was informed, interesting, and charming. She also handled a Mercedes van well within the tight confines of old Porto - impressive! Recommend her highly and will employ her again for other tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind comments. It was lovely to host you here, really a pleasure to meet you both and show you around. I hope to see you soon! Muito obrigada"

Orquidea did a great job juggling our visits to the small towns surrounding Porto. We visitied Braga, Guimaraes, Amarante and a winery before returning to Porto. We had a great walking tour in each city along with the history of that area. The day went very fast and we covered many miles. These towns were definitely worth seeing if you are in Porto for a few days. I cn recommend Orquidea for all those interested in the Porto area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, it was a real pleasure to host you! All the best, Orquidea Muito obrigada!

She had a great sense of pace in creating a vivid picture of the two cities we visited. A totally enjoyable dialogue about Portugal and its people. And a great lunch spot. Thanks Orquidea.

We thought we would be going to a small quinta, not one with tour buses & groups moving in & out. I didn't understand the rush to get there at 11:30; I did not know that groups were being slotted in. After a mass wine tasting, we were ushered into a fancy restaurant. We wanted lunch but not a fixed price menu of several courses. This was not expected. We asked if the price was included in the ($500) tour cost & the waiters seemed confused. No answers. Finally, we ordered some expensive appetizers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to comment.Please recall in our emails,I specifically noted that the winery visit was to be paid on site, the exact price and what was included (gourmet lunch w/ wine pairing, tour & tasting). You even replied, "great, thank you so much!".It's unfortunate that this was confused as it seemed to have ruined this typically excellent experience. September is the busiest month therefore wineries are very full, unfortunately we can't control that but we do have to reserve the visit

We were 100% happy with our tour. Orquidea was wonderful! She was personable and had a great way of telling us about the history and sights of Porto, which made our excursion and time in Porto really enjoyable. She knew the best place to enjoy a delicious local meal. I had a wish list of sights and she made sure we saw each one of them. We didn't have to worry about a thing except enjoying the places she showed us. She was really fun and pleasant & we would to hire her again if we return to Porto!

We had a wonderful Jewish as well as cultural tour of Porto with Orquidea. She met us at our boat, on time, and was ready to start a great tour. Some walking and some driving. There is not a great deal of Jewish history in Porto, but she found and showed us what was available to see as well as went into the history of why there is very little Jewish Heritage left after the inquisition. After a wonderful lunch we did a Port tasting and then returned us to our hotel. A great day, highly recommend her.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Orquídea. She was enthusiastic, a pleasure to be with, very informative and she spoke excellent English. She drove us to sites on the outskirts of Porto (she is an amazing driver - superbly navigating the narrow, hilly streets of Porto in a spacious, clean van) but we were also able to tour most places on foot. We learned a lot about the history of Porto and Portugal (with an emphasis on Jewish history). We highly recommend Orquídea as a guide.

WE planned this day trip as a transfer to Lisbon from Porto. Orquidea arranged the transfer to include stops in Coimbra and Tomar, both excellent suggestions that contributed greatly to our appreciation of Portugal its history and culture. And Orquidea is an excellent driver...getting us to our Lisbon hotel safely and timely in spite of running into probably thousands of motorcycles traveling to some sort of rally in Fatima!!!!

We had originally booked this tour with another guide but at the last minute that guide had to cancel. Orquídea stepped in less than 48 hours before our tour and ensured we had a wonderful experience. Orquídea is reliable, friendly and knowledgeable. She planned a fun day in Amarante (sight-seeing, coffee) and at a small port producer in the Douro Valley (guided tour, tasting, lunch). I would whole-heartedly recommend Orquídea.

was a nice tour but 1) orquidea didnt show up (she switched us to someone else at the last minute) and 2) the person who did show up, while she was very lovely, was not very knowledgeable about what we were doing. Basically was just a driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to rate this tour although I was very surprised at your comments. You are correct that I substituted another guide but this information was noted (and accepted) in a timely manner. I was sure that you enjoyed the tour, I even added an extra visit for your pleasure. The last winery was skipped as per your request. It is a shame that you did not feel that you got the information or knowledge about the region as it is one of my specialties, and a favorite of my guests as well.

We had a beautiful day in the Douro Valley with Orquidea providing great insights along the way. The itinerary was designed just for us to reflect our requests to meet a winemaker, see Roman villages and to visit some beautiful gardens. All these requests were met with excellent choices and a delicious, and huge, lunch at a restaurant overlooking the river. Orquidea handled the holiday traffic pressure far better than we might have and was a wonderful guide. We highly recommend her services.

Orquídea was a very competent and enjoyable guide. It was a group of only 4 of us, so the transportation was very comfortable and convenient. She was flexible in terms of what we wanted to do and the amount of walking, and very cognizant of our time limitations due to the ship's limited time in port - we wish we could have spent more time visiting the beautiful and interesting city of Porto. The stop for the port tasting (we did not have time for a tour) was very informative and the highlight of our tour
