bad

Bad, too expensive for a 4-language tour. Was even forgotten a few times in German to explain.

September 8, 2015

I was hoping for more.

Our guide was very good. However, 1 person speaks 4 languages. This is not clear from the description. That was not mine. Of course we were at each attraction longer, because all 4 subject was told. The visit to Alfama consisted of having a wine tasting in a tourist business. Only the drive to "Cascais" I did not understand. It is winter by that it gets dark quickly. You can not see anything anymore .... So a waste of time Our guide has a great job done no question - only the planning for a tour must fit the season.
