Very interesting stops and activities. It was a long quiet trip to and from Paris. I feels our guide could have done more to explain French history art and architecture along the way to make things move more smoothly.
Paolo our guide was very informative and tried to show us the none touristy side of LIsbon. He was very knowledgable about the food and drinks that we sampled. He explained their preparation and cultural significance. It was a very interesting tour, and well worth the price.
Marta our guide was very knowledgable about lisbon and portugal culture and history. She wasver y entertaining on our drive to and from Sintra and Cascais. Once at our destination she gave us a great tour of each location along with plenty of free time to explore. It was a great tour for the price.
We "hopped on" at the port at 1 pm, given a map, told something in french that we didn't understand. The driver drove around the block parked and told us it was his lunchtime and to come back at 3:30, and made everyone get off the bus. he gave us a schedule of times the bus comes to each destination. We returned at 3:30 and began our tour. Everything was fine until we decided to "hop off". It was at that time the bus driver told us that this was his last loop of the day, and that if we got off we would have to walk back to the town and the port. Even though the schedule had more pick up times on it. Some people that got on at one of the stops that they had been waiting 2 hours for a bus to return. So basically there is only one bus. This was a complete waste of our time.
