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 great trip, the small group size was perfect, and our tour leader Monik was simply amazing, super knowledgeable, always friendly and helpful and making sure everyone was included and happy. The only suggestion I can think is for improving the trip itinerary for the drive day from Porto to Madrid as there were no sights to visit along the way, just a stop for lunch at a roadside service station near the Spain/Portugal border. Maybe worth flying for that leg instead. Also I wish I’d known to book an extra night in Barcelona at the end of the trip, as you arrive in the evening on the last day and won’t have time to do much there unless staying an extra night. Also prior to the trip it was quite difficult to contact Topdeck customer service about my booking, they did not reply to any emails, I eventually got it sorted via a phone call.

    5 Star trip! Our trip leader Monik made the trip informative and lots of fun! She was knowledgeable about many different places and landmarks, kept the group engaged and made everyone feel taken care of. The trip had a perfect balance of activities and free time, lots to see and do everywhere we went

    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.
