Yes very well.

Not what I expected, (discussed with agent personally) but very attentive, good weather, cycling was more of a challenge, due to the expertise and expectation, the views stunning and a great sense of achievement.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was a great balance between challenging biking (in particular in Alcoutim area) and relaxation.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

At the end of June, Portugal is hot and dry. I lived in a sundress when I wasn't biking. All the stays had pools, which I benefited from, if I did it again, I would ask to be taken to the beach one afternoon (I couldn't ride because there was no secure place for the bike and no bike lock).

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local bike shop provided the (new, wonderful) bike and the guide, 2/3 hotels I stayed in were small, operating with attention to the environment, the third was more traditional urban hotel, not sure of their conservation efforts.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Really good, I felt safe, well taken care of and the riding was quite good -- with excellent road quality in the Alcoutim area, not so good in the Casta Marim, and poor near Olhao. The great benefit of a guide is that I had no worries of navigating, and could just focus on seeing the beautiful landscapes and enjoy the ride.
