I took the Castle and Wine self guided tour with Turaventur in September 2012.
It was an enjoyable 6 day ride. Teresa met us on the first night for orientation and discussed the trip, maps, and bikes. She was very friendly and answered all our questions. The bikes were great for the terrain. They were in great working conditions. They shifted great and we had no problems with the bikes. The maps and directions were good. One thing about this trip is the undulating hills. There were a few hills that were a good challenge. Our group upgraded to the 4 star hotels and Pousadas. I highly recommend it. The places were great. It was nice after a long, hot ride to have the pool to relax in and the air conditioned rooms. The Portuguese people are very friendly and helpful. One thing I can say about the bikes is I wish there was more pouches for storage. There were some days when we brought souvenirs, wine, and food. It was a challenge to see how we were going to carry it back to the hotel. All in all it was a great ride and I would highly recommend Turaventur bike tours.
