Personalised Tour

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, particularly because as we were in a small group, Miguel, our guide went out of his way to personalise it for us all. Not only did we enjoy a day in beautiful Aveiro, we also went to the beach, visited a castle and enjoyed the view of Porto from the Monastery in Gaia on our return. Miguel was very knowledgeable and so we learnt a lot about the history and culture of the area.

Interesting day but ...

We had a great day with our guide who introduced us to Aveiro and Cosa Nova with colorful houses. And yet the start of the day was almost understood. Our guide, who must be French, did not speak French !! He did the best he could. In addition, being a Monday many of the museums on the program were closed. By removing these misses this day would have been unforgettable!
