Exploring the Douro, Madrid, Lisbon Excursion Choices
I would appreciate some experienced input on the excursion options for our May 2022 Madrid-Lisbon Douro trip. I read through numerous forum postings and don’t see mention of Guimarães. On our Day 7 (westbound trip) we now have a choice of a Walking Tour of Guimarães OR a 13-mile bike ride through the Vinho Verde region, ending in the medieval town of Amarante. This is the only day with cycling mentioned, and we were looking forward to that—however, what are we missing in Guimarães?
Other options mirror trip reviews. Day 6 Douro River Museum or Lamego & Sparkling Wine. Options for Day 6 afternoon are now blank online but previously had shown Mateus or Cocktail Making. Day 9 are the Tauck Classic or faster paced walking tours of Porto.
