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.

    Overall, I had a great time. Love that the group size was small at only 20 people. It meant that the group hung out together a lot and our tour guide got to know us quite well. I think the tour should be longer such as 13-15 days rather than 10. We didn’t get enough time in places to really ‘delve deep’ such as Porto and Barcelona. I’d suggest 2 nights in each major destination so we can really explore a place. I think this would help with the long drives in Spain as well.
    Would recommend as a taster to Portugal and Spain!
