Un tour con muchos datos históricos sobre el arte, la arquitectura, la navegación y la conquista de colonias portuguesas, pero también bastante fuera de lo convencional. El guía sin duda es un gurú respecto a la historia de Portugal, pero podría cruzar la raya profesional de vez en cuando con los clientes. No obstante, no dejó de ser un tour bastante informativo.
