Martin's review for another G Adventures tour
“Overall, the tour was excellent. Diverse group of travelers. Good pace and ample time to do our own thing. Our guide Stefi was enthusiastic and positive. The MyStory Hotel Tejo in Lisbon is comfortable and in a great location. Stops in Obidos, Batalha, and Nazar were all worthwhile. The two main cities, Lisbon and Porto, are beautiful with great food, art, culture. Transport was smooth and safe. A couple of areas for improvement: the hotel in Coimbra (Hotel Astoria) is older and the rooms and beds are uncomfortable. Also, no WiFi in the rooms. The hotel on Porto (Hotel Da Bolsa) was a bit iffy too. All hotels in great locations through.”
