    It was a wonderful trip. Our guide Andre was courteous, very informative and made the experience a pleasant one. There is only one thing, upon arrival at our hotel in Porto, we had a long wait for our room to be ready. We were tired from traveling and didn't want to wander around Porto at that time. Maybe a get together meeting could have been scheduled at that time.

    Booking a tour of Portugal with Gate 1 through Affordabletours.com was a breeze. Excellent service.

    Tour was VERY GOOD. Very informative and interesting. Tour guide Berta was very nice, knowledgeable and attentive. Everything was organized very well. I will recommend Gate 1 to all my friends.

    The tour guide was excellent. Such an amazing in depth knowledge of Portugal and its culture. The hotels were very good except the Lisbon hotel did not live up to expectations as rooms were tiny and oddly designed. Optional tours I general were very disappointing.

    Some day the schedule is too heavy. Places need more are shorter and places need kless time alloted more time. Lunch time too short to include shopping and extra sightseeing

    Tour manager excellent Hotels great or better except F¡tima Extras should be included at those prices

    Well organized tour. Comfortable coach and high quality your director and bus driver.
