“Let me say at the outset, that Portugal is a...”

Written on: 09/05/2011

Let me say at the outset, that Portugal is a magnificent country, and clearly Julie, founder of Portugal Walks, knows the country well. And again, on the positive side, we stayed in comfortable, clean establishments. That having been said, we chose to take a self-guided walk, and the directions were nothing short of a disaster. If anybody does this, it is imperative to carry a cell phone. Most of the time we could get in touch with Julie who did her best to set us straight. But we are fairly seasoned hikers, and if there were a way to make directions obique, Portugal Walks does this. Although we had a pleasant, taciturn man taking us from one daily point of departure to the next, he had no interest in our experiences, where things went wrong, or what could have been done to make the directions clearer. Our daily trips became a "treasure Hunt" to follow directions. On a five day trip we lost our way every single day but once. No one ever called to find out how our trip went. We haven't heard from Julie -- other than helping us try and figure out where we were -- since we returned.
