I arranged this walking holiday via Portugal walks and was very pleasantly supprised with the detailed attention provided. Turaventur was our contact throughout. They provided us with detailed walking maps and a gps and were always only a phone call away. Monzaras castle a must to see, the walking routes with detailed explanation of the different sites, accommodation and food provided were all excellent. We were left with appetite for more of the same and I highly recommend this holiday for any reasonably active persons
