We were early at the Torre Branca today. It was still closed so we walked around the park for a while and were back about 10 minutes before opening. We were the only ones. (On Wednesdays school groups and pensioners get a free ride up). About a minute before opening a large school group cam in. We were then told school groups get priority so we have to wait which will take about 30 minutes. We said ok, but after 15 minutes the first group of school kids was still up in the tower and probably about another 5 group of kids had to go up..
So we decided to leave as in the mean time a group of elderly people came in as well. So they were probably given priority as well.
why would we have to wait for so long if it only would take us 5 minutes to be up there, but the whole school group would probably take an hour.More
