Good experience!

From the beginning, he was surprised by the friendliness and professionalism of Mateus, our guide, who gave us a beautiful lesson in the history of Portugal. Note 10 to him. The fado show was very good with exceptional musicians and very good singers and dancers. Only dust could include older fados in the repertoire. Dinner left something to be desired. At the entrance, a green broth soup was cold and burnt. The codfish is very dry. Overall a good experience.
