Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Porto:

"We were blessed with 70 degree weather, so the apartment was comfortable, even the bedroom without a window. Climbing those cobblestone hills ALL the time was a surprise, but having the weather moderate helped with that. Overall take away: the Portuguese people were so cordial!"
-A. and E. Smith, Stockbridge, MA

I really liked Portugal a lot-- such friendly and helpful people especially in Porto. Enjoyed walking around the various neighborhoods and going to special sites. Portugal is a charming country from what we experienced with very friendly people and a rich history and pride in earlier explorations of world by ship. Museums and churches are beautiful and enjoyed seeing their artwork and culture.
