    This trip really gives a full range of Portugal. My only recommendation would be to add on a day at each end of trip to more fully see Oporto and Lisbon.

    We were labeled as single beds, not double. Was able to change our room the 2nd night in Lisbon, but found it to be time consuming as we stayed in Lisbon 3 nights. Missed our first excursion which cost over $150. Yes, we should have been more intuned , but the tour guide should have confirmed with us the day before that we were on the list for the tour.

    Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Portugal is a beautiful county, and Gate 1 did a fantastic job.

    Needs more free leisure time to enjoy the cities on our own and do some local shopping.

    I had really good experience to travel to Portugal with Gate 1. Our leader tour Mr Americo was a very nice and knowledgeable gentleman .

    We enjoy every day of our travel. Thank you Gate 1 for this pleasure adventure. All the best to your business life.

    We enjoyed the trip however we felt the group dinners were very disappointing. The food was terrible while with the group. We'd rather pay a little more and have better quality.

    Our tour guide was excellant !!!!!!!!!!!!! Organized, spoke 5 languages kept the group informed of all the places we visited. We enjoyed all of the extra tours we purchased except the river cruise. We understood the dinner would be on the river not in a restaurant on land. The dinner was enjoyable but enough food to serve an army. The extra tour north of Porto covered three towns and was well worth the cost. Sintra was a terrific day tour and highly recommend.The hotels in Porto and Lisbon were extremely comfortable and attractive. The smaller town hotels were ok for travelers but needed some updating. Please tell your customers that this tour has hundreds of steps to climb every day.
