Interesting but …

We booked the activity but got a call 10 minutes before that the activity was cancelled. We could go the next day but we were already in a different hotel that was further away. We booked an English tour but it was in poor French. Nevertheless, it was interesting. A shame that we were not allowed to leave before spending half an hour in the shop afterwards.

Not as advertised

Our guide Anna Christina was very good and the tour of the one building where they boil and flatten and grade the cork was great BUT there was no movie,no wAlk among trees, nothing being made or boiled. Nothing going on at all. Even the stuff in the giftshop is brought in from elsewhere.not what was advertised.

Very good tour on how cork trees grow, get harvested an prepared for further reduction. Even though we were 1/2 hour late for the tour we caught up to the group and finished the tour and then our tour guide stayed on and gave us the part of the tour that we missed. This was very much appreciated as it wasn't her fault that we were late! This tour gave us a great appreciation for the cork tree and how important it is to Portugal and its people. Thank you for allowing us to tour you factory.

I'll never again look at cork the same way I did before the tour. An environmentally perfect product in every way. Nothing is wasted. Production requires skilled manpower at every step in the process. Amazing process and product! Personable, knowledgeable and multi-lingual guide. Highly recommend this tour.
