    So much to experience. Although rushed at times, albeit with quiet days as well, we experienced a lot. A lot of variety of visit-sites vs activities, a well curated tour.

    The Back Roads Discover Portugal tour was excellent. the destinations great a mixture of cities and smaller places. the small group is ideal, hotels beautiful in fantastic locations. both tour guide and bus driver were professional and caring. i did find it a little surprising that in this world climate of COVID those who tested positive had to leave the tour. I would have been happy with wearing masks and using hand sanitizer as now there are no legal protocols in place as I understand. The minute each of us chose to fly overseas I see it as a risk we were all willing to take. If someone travelled with an underlying condition, they did so at their own peril.
