Trip itinerary

  1. Lisbon (Portugal)

    1

    History. Culture. Food. And some seriously booty-burning hills. Dump your stuff at the hotel, say olá to your fellow explorers, and strap in for a drive around this electric city to tick off some of Lisbon’s A-lister sights. And tonight? We’re diving head first into Portuguese heritage with an included dinner and a traditional fado show. Fado music (think super-passionate folk songs) was born in Lisbon in the 19th century, so there’s no better place to experience it. Sit back and let it all sink in. You’re really here.

    The overall layout and locations visited on the tour were great, but it would've been nice to have more inclusions (i.e walking tours) and optional activities. We had included driving tours in certain destinations, but our bus driver said he would not drive us there due to his working hours and that it was 'too busy'. As this was an inclusion in our tour package, the drivers' hours should've been factored in. He would also argue with our Tour leader about our inclusions, which made everyone feel very uneasy on the bus.

    A lot of cities and free time which was great but sometimes the group wanted to do things together like dinners or a rooftop bar but our tour manager wasn’t interested or said he didn’t know what bars or restaurants would take larger booking and pretty much said it’s not her job to book for us or organise anything. We only saw her on actual travel days besides one walking tour which was good but we all met in town rather than leaving from our accommodation which would make better sense as we didn’t know how to get into town at that stage?
    Some of the things she told us were wrong- she wasn’t very knowledgeable and even told us it was only her second time doing the trip which was noticeable.

    Good variety of places visited. Most hotel were good.
    Good amount of free time in each place.
