Mary-Lou G.United States
Jose was OUTSTANDING: top-notch historical-cultural expertise AND genuinely warm personality! He was waiting with umbrellas for us (2 couples) at fabulous Coimbra University, where he had once been a student. His encyclopedic (but never "lecturing") knowledge went far beyond "guidebook" info, including hidden passages, entertaining anecdotes, and just when to enter the chapel. He even joined us in our private Lisbon-Porto limo to point out other city highlights AND arranged a marvelous local lunch for us!
