Poetry in Motion
Find a world where poets, painters, and pastry shops keep rhythm with the soulful sounds of Fado music and medieval marvels on an escorted tour of Portugal. Stroll through medieval Obidos, and see the tomb of explorer Vasco da Gama at Lisbon’s Jeronimos Monastery. Explore Tomar, former seat of the Order of the Knight's Templar, and tour Henry the Navigator's Promontory of Sagres near Cape St. Vincent. Stand in the shadows of a 14th-century castle in the charming town of Belmonte, and light a candle in the pilgrim procession through miraculous Fátima. Try local specialties in a renowned vineyard and raise your spirits and a glass of port in a world-famous wine cellar.
The best tour I have been on – and the only one (I thought I would hate a tour). Strengths – the people on the tour, our guide in Hanoi (superb) and in Saigon (smart and thoughtful), the countries themselves, the hotel in Hanoi, the fact that almost everyone on the tour has a genuine “heart” for people, for ideas, for travel and for making a positive difference in the world in a variety of ways – I think this acts as a screening device, the informal yet powerful role played by the “sisters” - Jane and Mary – their two songs were actually the sound track to the happiness group in convenience shoes, the visit to the orphanage, the boat trip/lunch on Halong Bay. The journeys with heart concept I think acts as a sorting device so you get genuinely nifty people – I really MISS our tour people.Linda K | Cambodia
