Excellent service and support from the Portuguese provider meridian4people. Excellent German guide !! The places Aveiro and Costa Nova are magical and worth the trip alone! The boat tour is ok too, but already very commercialized. Portigiesen break out into the modern age and are very friendly and courteous.
