6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

"Several people have told us that after experiencing a PortugalBike Tour they would hardly enjoy a tour with another company. Many of them return several times, not because of Portugal but because they like our organization. Here are one of hundred testimonials that we have received: In recent years, we have bicycled in France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. On several of these trips, we took our own bicycles and made lodging arrangements ourselves. I guess you can say that we enjoy learning about European countries from pedaling a bicycle. No trip that we have taken has been better planned and executed than the two we did through M14710. We are thrilled we used this fabulous company. (...)"

 1  Tsybunov Konstantin Castles and Natural Parks tour 2007-10-22
I wish to thank you all for the excellent tour. You are professionals and we appreciate it. This was one of the most beautiful and most difficult Tours our ... view more group has ever made. We liked Portugal. All is simple in delight. Many of us already plan to return. Could you prepare a tour across Portugal for us next time, perhaps next year? We are interested in the most beautiful places along the coast and also inland. Once again, I thank you for professionalism and excellent work. Greetings to your entire group.

 2  Ken Band and Linda Foster The Sea and Mystical Sintra 2007-10-22
It was just AMAZING!! We liked the Tour very much. We had a fantastic week of holidays, with amazing views, and we are already missing the Sun of Portugal. The ... view more meals were very good and everything was very well organised. Thank you again and we will be back next year.

 3  Russel Blum and Kristine Lederman The Wild Islet and the Medieval Village tour 2007-10-22
Thank you for the best vacation ever. I can honestly say it was custom made for me!! (...) «The Wild Islet & the Medieval Village» tour have shown me that ... view more Portugal is a diverse country. I feel like I saw it all in 8 days, without any travel stress. (...) M14710 is a complete destination management company. I am so impressed with your company and I am telling everyone; you were «tour guides», personal trainers, translators, concierge, taxi, caterers, historians, friends and professional business operators. M14710 takes care of everything, all you need to do is ride and enjoy!! Great home made lunches, excellent local restaurants, transportation and translation services you will be thrilled with your vacation. The time I spent off the bicycle was as interesting and diverse as during the ride. M14710 is priceless and you (Jose & Cristina) are a pleasure. Spending a week with 2 total strangers and trusting their judgment was a concern of mine before selecting my trip. I recommend you both on your character and integrity; you are both excellent people (personally and as business owners). I HIGHLY recommend this trip to everyone and anyone who has a pulse and a desire to see a beautiful country. By bike, boat, foot, land, sea and van, we covered the city of Lisboa from top to bottom, ocean coast, cliffs, beach, islands, mountains 600m up, caves 60m under, castles, desert, farms, countryside villages, vacation hot spots, nature preserves and island, fancy hotels, manor houses, converted olive factories, ostrich farms, sheep herds and my favourite - Obidos, the city inside the castle walls, it's amazing. Thank you again for everything!

 4  Jeff Austin The Islet and the Medieval Village tour 2007-10-22
My wife, my son and I went on a Trekking Bike tour with M14710 and had a great time. The service was first class all the way from making the reservation to the ... view more conclusion of the ride. The ride was fantastic and Jose who was our guide was fun to be with and rode at the appropriate pace for everyone involved. He was a wealth of knowledge about the country and the specific area that we were riding. Even the van ride to and from the ride was enjoyable with great conversation and information about the area. The lunch provided was delicious and far better than I imagined. The people of Portugal are very friendly and the country is beautiful and well suited to mountain or road biking. If you haven't considered Portugal for a biking destination, please do. I highly recommend M14710 for any biking tours in Portugal. Again, thank you very much for the wonderful time.

 5  Max and Franziska Beckman The Megalithic Heritage in Alentejo tour 2007-10-22
Regarding our tour, we spent a marvellous week in Portugal and were happy to discover the nice countryside of the Alentejo. This week out in the wonderful ... view more nature, discovering lots of nice trails and some cultural sites made us really forget everyday's life. It was fantastic and we enjoyed very much the perfect organisation and your company, while riding the bikes, around the pick-nick-table or during one of the nice dinners together with you. M14710 is a great team that we can warmly recommend to all our friends. We hope to see you again, perhaps on another tour.

 6  Wesley and Beverley Mazer The Beautiful Alentejo Beaches tour 2007-10-22
(...) We consider ourselves very fortunate to have had Jose as our guide. Not only does he operate an exemplary business but he is a well informed person who ... view more willingly shares Portugal's history and culture and he truly cares about the people on his tour. He provides excellent service to his customers.
(...) We were so pleased that our tour travelled along the west coast as we saw breathtaking scenery. The cliff colours due to soil variations and the ocean colours and sounds were unbelievable. We were fortunate to bike not only along the coast but across pastoral areas that were green, relaxing, and totally enjoyable. We view ancient fortresses and castles, farmyards, olive groves, and cork trees (...)

 7  Maria Pacella The Beautiful Alentejo Beaches tour 2007-10-22
(...) It was not only beautiful scenery and great biking, but a fantastic culinary experience as well! M14710 is a family run company, and Jose and Cristina were great hosts and guides.

 8  Martha C. Scala The Beautiful Alentejo Beaches tour 2007-10-22
(...) The tour not only MET my wishes and expectations, it far EXCEEDED them. I loved every bit of it (even having to walk on 2 of the steepest hills), and ... view more would do it again "in a heartbeat" as we say here in the USA. (...)The fact that we were hardly ever on a busy road in Portugal increased our enjoyment of the scenery tenfold! (...) Beyond that, I want to add how much I appreciated "the little things" that were actually quite big... like picnic tables in beautiful spots, delicious cheeses, bread, and other treats, luggage waiting for us in the lobby of our hotel, and some of the best dinners I've ever had on a vacation.

 9  David, Susan and Eric White The Seven Castles Route tour 2007-10-22
I would have to say that it was one of the best holidays we have had as a family. The trips on the internet were described in detail hence there were no ... view more surprises about the trips. Whether your trip is guided or not you are provided with interesting and important information about the treks. Our guide was friendly, polite and well informed about each area we visited. Most important, because we took the self-guided tour, we felt if we had any mechanical difficulties help was close by. The company thinks of everything you need for a healthy active sport holiday. After our first experience with M14710, we are already planning our next trip. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and the selection of treks available. M14710 was also flexible to meet the needs of our family. The accommodations were super! What a wonderful way to experience the beauty and history of Portugal; it is full of surprises! Thanks for the wonderful trip in Portugal. We enjoyed it very much and was a great experience for all of us!

 10  Stephen Corkery Serra da Estrela ...Sheer Down! 2007-10-22
(...) Thanks again for such a nice week in the Portugal. The mountain biking trails were great fun with very fast and technical down-hills and the setting was fantastic.
