The best part about our tour is that Nadia was able to be very flexible … we had three children who were sleep-deprived and adjusting to many time zones from their home. One had a meltdown in the Palace and Nadia just rolled with it! We learn a lot but likely not as much as she could have taught us … and she was okay with that, which we very much appreciated!
José was wonderful. We had two days with him, and his knowledge (of the specified tours, and beyond) has enriched our brief experience in Porto more than we could imagine, and couldn’t possibly discovered on our own. Many thanks.
Jose Luis was terrific. He was incredibly knowledgeable and completely engaged in making our day informative and enjoyable. Guimaraes was a gem - not to be missed by travelers who love Portugal.
