    • Douro River Cruise

      Miranda do Douro 20 hours ago

      Hi,
      I´m looking for a short River Cruise from Miranda do Douro in Mid-September.
      I can only find 2 different (1hr. / 2hrs.), but they start not before 4pm.
      indouro.com/default.asp?id=1...
      We have our Hotel in Bragança, so I´m wondering if there are other Tours with an earlier Departure? The weekday will be Wednesday or Thursday, we can choose.
      And if somebody is well versed with Trás-os-Montes please have a look at my two planned daytrips. Are there (better?) suggestions at or beside the plan? Something special to do, see, eat,...
      Day 1: https://goo.gl/maps/TAKvF
      Day 2: https://goo.gl/maps/dX0D9
      (we come from Viseu at Day 0, at Day 3 we are going to Ponte de Lima),

      thx
      momo

    • Restaurant/Bar Terrace Recommendation

      Cascais Jul 30, 2015 at 10:12 PM

      Hi VTers, I'm finding it hard to research nice restaurants and bars to visit in Cascais. I'm looking for recommendations for a group of about 20 people to gather for a pre-wedding celebration. Ideally somewhere a little more upmarket without being crazy expensive and with a view for some food & nice drinks so maybe a terrace/patio/roof deck - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      My next question is that it will be midweek, early September...is it typically quiet in this area midweek or still lively?

      Thanks in advance! K.

    • Cruise ship visit - what to do?

      Lisbon Jul 15, 2015 at 7:59 PM

      We are in Lisbon on two cruise ship visits - Thursday 24 September & Monday 5 October.
      We have arranged a guided tour for our second visit - Lisbon, Sintra & Estoril.

      Seeing as this tour gives us a good overview of the city we are now left wondering what to do on our first visit.

      I have read about a river cruise but that is late in the afternoon, we would need to be back on board by 4pm. (Is there maybe a morning one?)

      Any ideas of how to spend our first visit appreciated. Unfortunately we are unable to change the booked tour to the first visit. If we had done the tour first it would have been easy - we would have known what areas we would have like to spend more time in.
      If the city is very hilly we would not be wanting to walk all day.

      All ideas appreciated!

      I want to hire a quality road bike or mountain bike from 12 July to 23rd July.

      Bike Iberia will hire me a bike OK but they need to deliver to a hotel or an address available 9am - 5pm 'there must be a Front Desk open all day long during normal business hours.' they dont deliver to a personal address (I am staying in rented accomodation at a personal address).

      Is there anywhere in Sesimbra that I can use eg. hotel or shop address as a delivery and pick up address?

      Or is there anywhere else that I can hire from?

      We're thinking of renting a place in Caparica in September. The only thing concerning me is getting there from the airport. What is the best option? The letting agent says a taxi from the airport to Caparica takes about 40mins and would cost €20-25, is this correct? Is there a bus/train direct from airport which goes to, or near Caparica?
      Any help would be appreciated!!

      Hi. We would like to holiday in the Setubal area this year as we think it could be a good place to purchase a holiday home but we normally go to the Algarve where the kids (3yrs & 2yrs) love the waterparks. We are worried there may not be enough to keep them occupied on the Lisbon Coast and so wonder how far/how long it would take to drive to say Lagoa in the Algarve, for a day at a waterpark? Also any ideas on things for young children more locally would be much appreciated. Thanks!
