    Our guide, Kristi, was excellent. The accommodation was very good. I especially liked getting off the beaten track and visiting some of the lesser well-known places. The sheep's milk farm visit was good, as was the unexpected dancing at Guimares, a very interesting town. I would certainly recommend Blue-Roads to other travellers to Portugal. (I already have). I don't like the queues which happen everywhere now.

    Exceeded our expectations of what small group tours would be in every respect, the guide, the accommodation, the tour as a whole.

    An excellent itinerary led by a superb Tour Director. The coach was very comfortable, included meals were tasty - apart from the weather (rainy and chilly) it was very good.
