Понравилась пунктуальность и точность выполнения заявленной программы. Без опозданий. Наполненность информацией полезной и интересной. Никаких нареканий. Отдельное спасибо гиду Владимиру за энтузиазм и интересные рассказы про Португалию и ее историческое и культурное наследие.

В поездку по Португалии ездили вдвоем с 06.11 по 15.11.19. Тур заказывали из Москвы и основным пожеланием было - побольше посмотреть. Нам менеджер Карина посоветовала тур "Легенды империи". Поездка получилась просто великолепная! Посмотрели и сам Лиссабон, и его окрестности, и еще много городов и городков этой удивительной страны. Программа была достаточно насыщенная, но наш гид Владимир сумел так организовать, что удалось посетить все намеченные исторические места и побродить по уютным улочкам. В ходе поездки было много интереснейшей информации о Португалии. Страна восхищает глубиной своей истории, самобытностью, гостеприимством и природой. Я здесь уже второй раз, а муж впервые. И если будет возможность, то постараемся приехать вновь. Спасибо принимающей стороне и гидам, особенно Владимиру. Буду всем рекомендовать поехать именно с этой фирмой. Галина

Огромное спасибо гиду Тамилла. Четко и оперативно решены все проблемы туристов: от перепутанных чемоданов - до перепутанных отелей. Прекрасно и с любовью рассказано о Португалии - тур Томар Коимбра.Тамилла - настоящая жемчужина El tour. Спасибо!
Гид Александр. Экскурсия в Обидуш и обзорная. Ленив, не интересуется темой экскурсии, путается в словах, адресах. Не может четко распределить время группы. Очень жаль, что есть такие гиды. Информацию по туру брали из путеводителей. Потенциально тур очень интересный. Печально , что подкачал человеческий фактор.
Филипенко Павел
Большое спасибо за интересный тур. Получили удовольствие от полученных впечатлений. Гид Юлия Дидух и Мария Пискунова - настоящие знатоки своего дела, профессионалы высокого класса. Много и интересно рассказывали. Видно, что не только владеют информацией, но и умеют доступно донести ее до группы, и познавательно, и с чувством юмора. Общение с ними было легким и приятным. В следующий раз обязательно обращусь в любимую компанию ElTour за новыми впечатлениями и новыми путешествиями. Спасибо всем!
