Trip Report Trip report (Lisbon, Doura valley, Marvao, Evora, Algarve)

3 families (6 adults and 4 teens) toured Portugal over 10 days. We have all traveled quite a bit previously and all felt that Portugal was one of our best trips to date. The sights, the people, the FOOD, the wine, ease of travel made this an amazing trip for us. We covered the following:

Lisbon - 2 nights including Sintra
Obidos and Tomar in one day with overnight in Coimbra
Doura valley (Pinhao) 2 nights.
Marvao 1 night
Evora 1 night
Lagos 2 nights
Last night in Lisbon

This may seem rushed to many but worked out just fine for us. We used a tour guide for Lisbon (lisbon4smile) which I would highly recommend. Our tour guide was excellent and kept all the kids & adults awake and interested :) Using a tour guide also allowed us to bypass the long lines at the major tourist attractions. We were able to hit the different neighborhoods and view points efficiently. I don't think we would have accomplished a quarter of what she was able to show us by ourselves.

Sintra for us was a wash out. It rained for most of the day. the best part for us were the desserts at the restaurant at Pena palace. Besides the rain and long lines for the delayed buses I found it tremendously touristy. I am sure its gorgeous when the weather is good but we didn't get to experience the glory

Obidos is a gorgeous little white washed hilltop village. Nice views, shops and restaurants. Enjoyed by all.

The 12th century Templar church in Tomar was stunning. No crowds which surprises me considering the historical importance and grandness of the structure.
