 1  Susan Boyer Alentejo Bicycling Tour Portugal
You surpassed our expectations with very personal attention, great routes, good bikes, and fun guides. Would definitely recommend them for cycling in Portugal.

 2  Melanie Kitchen Bike Tour Alentejo - May 2009
This trip worked for spouses of differing biking ability because of the excellent daily van support. My bike trip days with a spouse who is a much stronger rider are not over yet! You have converted me to the added value of guided bike tours over doing it ourselves.

 3  Ron Kitchen Bike Tour Alentejo - May 2009
By the third day all of us had learned the words to a Swedish children's song with the chorus "We're so happy, we're so happy!" We all sang along, complete with hand gestures. Pedro and Nuno, joined in. We were relaxed, willing to be silly and thoroughly enjoying the trip.

 4  Louise Krivel Bike Tour Alentejo Coast & Hills of Algarve - Set. 2008
This trip was unbelievable...a very special experience!

We laughed a lot!

 8  Ross Bonetti Bike Tour Alentejo Coast & Hills of Algarve - Set. 2008
Best holiday I have ever had !!
The part of Portugal that our guides Pedro and Marco lead us through is a amazing unspoiled part of Europe with beautiful meandering roads that seemed like they were our own.
The riding was challenging and very enjoyable with great stops to view the historical sites along ... view more the way.
The hotels they chose because of their very different surroundings and aesthetic made the trip so wonderfully eclectic and every meal was outstanding.

 9  Melissa Bonetti Bike Tour Alentejo Coast & Hills of Algarve - Set. 2008
If your looking for challenging road riding with amazing views, great food, and phenomenal accommodations you have to do the Alentejo Coast and Hills of Algarve with Pedro and the A2Z Adventures.
He took care of everything for us and even though the rides were a challenge we all felt extremely relaxed because ... view more Pedro did all the organizing and in a group that is a huge responsability.
The trip went by way to fast!!! Amazing photos and memories to keep forever.

 10  Geoffrey Glotman Bike Tour Alentejo Coast & Hills of Algarve - Set. 2008
Everything you did exceeded my expectations from getting picked up at the airport without asking, providing unbelievable biking routes and maps, great unique hotel experiences to being great people too spend a week with.
I would recommend this trip too any bike rider looking for fun and adventure.
The ... view more Tour de Portugal was absolutely fantastic and far exceeded my expectations!

 11  Michel Chiaramello Walking - Historical Villages of Portugal
A superb voyage through these splendid preserved villages.

 12  Renata Falzoni MTB - 540km Historical Portuguese Trail
ADOREI TUDO NESSA VIAGEM e Portugal foi antes de tudo uma linda supresa. Encontrei-me com as nossas origens e que prazer!Quero voltar em breve, para pedalar mais por aí e ter mais tempo para gravar as festas e danças regionais, que tanto me lembraram o Pará e o Nordeste do Brasil.

 13  Pedro Trindade MTB - 540km Historical Portuguese Trail
A organização do passeio foi muito bem planejada, nos hoteis também o atendimento foi como esperávamos. Você e o Pedrosa, além de profissionais competentes e cultos, foram sempre pacientes e amáveis com toda a turma, então só me resta dar os parabéns. Merecem menção especial os amigos que fizemos também.

 14  Gary Fisher MTB - 540km Historical Portuguese Trail
The worst part was leaving the tour. I had a great time and can not refrain for telling everyone who will listen about it!.
A2Z Adventures is a great company.

 15  Megan Roworth MTB - 540km Historical Portuguese Trail
The week was a blast! I found the hospitality great, and the countryside fascinating.

 16  Mário Gaspar Trekking - The Berbere Route, Morocco
Foi uma experiência muitíssimo interessante; a nível cultural, paisagístico, religioso e gastronómico. Gostámos muito. A vossa companhia (A2Z) e a companhia de todos os colegas de expedição foi também muito agradável.
Estamos já ansiosos pela próxima....

 17  Rebecca Rand Walking - The Northeastern Portuguese Caminho
The tour was really wonderful. A big part of thee charm right now is seeing no other travelers and how friendly everyone is and apparently glad to see us.

All of the meals were quite good. I loved Anna's and Amelia's cooking and also the night we got the bonus codfish dish. None of the meals ... view more would I rate subpar. Sharing a bottle of wine, conversation and coffee made them
all celebratory.

 18  Vanda Manahan Walking - The Northeastern Portuguese Caminho
These hikes exceeded my expectations. You’ve introduced me to the most fascinating corners of an intriguing country with so much to offer in culture, history, architecture, and natural beauty. I am reading Saramago’s Journey to Portugal now and I’ll begin his novels soon. I hope to dance again in Monsanto ... view more next May.

Many, many thanks, and best wishes.

 19  Nancy Williams Walking - Tejo and Historical Villages of Portugal
Portugal is an undiscovered treasure - the Historic and Schist villages offer fascinating glimpses of times long past, and warm and friendly people.

 20  Jim Verdier The Great Pyrenees Challenge bike tour
Spectacular scenery, challenging climbs, excellent hotels, a great guide, and a very cool GPS on the bikes.
