Memorable parts? It was outstanding and hard to pinpoint a single thing. Experiencing the Onsens, seeing a whole valley flowering with cherry blossom, eating lots and lots of extraordinary food. A guide who was always patient and smiling and couldn't do enough to make sure every single person got what they wanted. Walking though beautiful valleys and mountains..... I could go on and on. Tips? Carry as little as possible - all the ryokans and hotels do provide sleepwear and toiletries... (more)Ruth Patterson
Sintra Natural Park accommodation in Portugal
From
€80
per room per night
The best memory was the view of the surrounding area from our room. The 360 degree view was just stunning that even the stormy weather failed to spol]il. It was an excellent vacation as our hosts made sure that all of our needs were meet. James gave us great instructions for the walks that we went on. (more)Margaret Farmer
The wonderful view from our room, 360 degrees all round. The excellent local knowledge for easy walking trails, starting from the front gate. The ease of transport with local buses, or the hosts friendly 'taxi' service. The unique breakfast, with a wide and daily changing range of food. The ever so friendly helpful advice of where to go and how to get there. (more)Stephen Butler
The hosts, Aasta and James, are simply superb. This is a lot more than just accommodation, they really go out of their way to make the stay special. The region is spectacular and James' knowledge was invaluable in helping me to make the most of my short time. (more)Lee Turner

The dancing was amazing, hilarious, fun and depending on how much you put into it - painful due to bad shoes! But totally worth it. The people there - I can't describe how warm and welcoming they are. The dancers, the guides.... everybody I met in fact. (more)Britt Voll
One of the best moments was probably snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs area near Play Giron, and then of course all the salsa dancing, both in classes and in the evenings! (more)Anniina Simula

Great. Would definitely now consider another cycling vacation with this company. We enjoyed the experience of cycling through the countryside and to the beach then stopping off for lunch and a beer. We saw so many lovely places. (more)patricia houston
We all enjoyed it immensely...I think seeing the first medieval village and cycling through the deep countryside were the most satisfying experiences.
