    The guide taking 1:5 lunch breaks which meant at times nothing to do especially on Sundays when nothing is open. Our last back roads tour our guide didn’t do this every day just one in 5 For our Portuguese guide it was a job - no real passion for the country!

    Interesting places to see. Great people on the tour; excellent tour guides and drivers. The backroads took us to out of the way places, as well as iconic places.

    Loved the itinerary. Accomodation was fabulous and included lots of surprises. Just one small suggestion, would have been great to commence the tour the night before so we could meet and greet everyone before setting off on the tour. Would have liked to see a little more of Lisbon
