Trip review
Portugal

loved their trip to Portugal

I mentioned a lot above. We rented electric bikes from the hotel also to go around which gave us a nice freedom to get some sight-seeing in. It's quite hilly, so good exercise for the legs! All-in-all, we would definitely go back to Lisbon. Obrigada Joel! :)

Best parts:
We had such a wonderful time in Lisbon! The people were so welcoming, and helpful. Our agent Joel was perfect. Very attentive, checking in on us to see how our trip was going, and full of knowledge! We managed to have a relaxing holiday, as well as visiting and experiencing the culture all-in-one. We went to the Alfama district, which has beautiful character & architecture, to a quaint Portuguese restaurant, as recommended by our agent, to see a Fado music performance. Before it, we visited the São Jorge Castle, which had a fantastic view of the city! (beware of the trek up to it though) One of my favourite things was Belém Tower. It closes around 6pm, but we went when the sun was setting and it was just beautiful, then a nice walk along the seafront. Cascais was great also. We went to see the Boca do Inferno. I would also never have thought to visit an Aquarium, but Joel had recommended the Oceanário de Lisbon, and I was so happy we went. It would be great to visit for a family, but we enjoyed it as a couple too. Food-wise, I can be quite picky but we didn't have one bad meal. The food was so fresh. The specialities would be in seafood, but I managed to eat vegetarian also. Check out the Time Out Market also, if you are a foodie!
