    "A most enjoyable holiday in Portugal with Eco Trilha. Cris our guide was excellent, gave personalized and friendly service. We were given ample time to discover the places we visited and Cris was there with us all the way. Highly recommended for tourists who wished to discover Portugal off the beaten tracks. The visit to the hotel owned by the 1st Masterchef of Portugal was memorable, especially the cooking workshops. Thumbs up!!"
