TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST CRAFTOURS PORTUGAL TOURS:

Maureen Jones, Melbourne, FL - "A very memorable visit to Portugal. We spent time in Vila Vicosa, a small, beautiful town and in Lisbon, a large city, so we got to enjoy two vastly different parts of the country. The crafts the local artisans shared - cork, wood painting, dolls, gold restoration and sidewalk pavers were a few that I enjoyed. The passions, of the artists were passed on and it was evident their crafts were a labor of love. The local people we met were kind, friendly and helpful. The other tour members were delightful, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending days with them, and look forward to meeting them on future trips."
Nancy Chiancone, Silver Springs, MD - "Great experience! Loved the access we got to meet artisans and take part in learning their crafts."
Sheila Arney, Marshalltown, IA - "When I first read about this trip I thought it would be a good one to have my husband join me. I was not mistaken! I had been on a couple other trips that were more "craft" orientated, and this one was more of a "taste" of the country. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the trip."
Ramona Tapper, Polk City, IA - "I really enjoyed this trip- we did get to see the highlights of Portugal- which is what the trip was titled."
Linda Evans, Farmington Hills, MI - "From the very beginning to the farewell dinner, every day was a new experience. The extraordinary landscapes, architecture and friendly people of Portugal made this trip more than I expected. I can’t wait for a return visit."
