The tour guide/van driver basically dropped us off at each location without even telling us the highlights of every site. We were left on our own to wander around.

A very informative and interesting tour, visiting many beautiful places with lots to taste on the way - both food and other beverages.

The superior hotel booked was excellent with a good breakfast. I found all the tours underwhelming. Although the guides did a good job there was too much time spent in the minibus. The best tour by far we did was the extra one, the afternoon wine and food tour. Great value.

Better to book independantly than do this 4 day thing. I choose it thining value for money but hotel was terrible (not even 2 star). I enjoyed the walking tours bud Fado and dinner were poor. Sintra and Pena Palace were great but we were rushed through the other places, did not even stop at some places.

Loved the tour but it's not really a 4 day tour; it's more like a 2 to maybe 2.5 days. The first days it's an "optional" youth with an extra charge that you can attend. Thanks to our airline we didn't make it and luckily we hadn't paid but this tour was a dinner tour

The next day the walking tour was great and there was plenty to see and do in addition to eating and drinking. The night tour that was the dinner and fado was SPECTACULAR.

The sintra tour was also good, just the right amount of time in each location to take in what they have to offer.

My main complaint was the hotel room; not so much the hotel because it's in a great location. But the room itself. The place was booked in a residence called "Roma." It's a step above a hostel. The beds are hard and the pillows suck (what else is new Europe; it's like they all shop in the same place). Don't expect room service or a spectacular services; it's a bed nothing more

The last day is left "for myself" so technically the first day is also a "for myself" tour so it's only a two day tour with an option for dinner the first day
