Patricia Alves planned every aspect of our 11 day trip and it was the trip of a lifetime. The private drivers who picked us up and dropped us off for our planes and trains were excellent. All the hotels were excellent and the variety of tours was beyond our belief. The first class train ride to and from Oporto was... More

We payed for two private tours with our family. We enjoyed every second of it, it was interessting and a good choice for a short stay in this beautiful country. The transport was very comfortable and safe. About the Braga and Guimaraes trip I might say we loved discovering cities that were quite different from the most popular Porto and... More

Anabel at EcoTours Portugal organized 3 day tours for us from Lisbon. I booked with them because they had partners that could provide tours in French, which is what we needed for my mother and sister. The first day was a visit to Fatima (included Batalha, Alcobaça, Nazaré and Óbidos). I hadn't realized, but Fatima is about one hour and... More

Beware - Ecotours Portugal group tours is a front for Grey Line Tours. If you do not like Grey Line, do NOT book a group tour through Ecotours Portlugal. There is nothing in their brochure or itinerary listings or in any of my personal correspondence that states I was being transferred over to a 3rd rate company like Grey Lines.... More

We were really surprised when we read your review. We had no idea that you detest Gray Lines and if you had told us before, we had never booked with them. But, most important, if you had told us at the beginning or during the tour that it was not what you were expecting, we would have changed the program... More

Tania with Ecotours had emailed us that only one other couple would be with us most likely on our four day tour of southern Portugal. So imagine our dismay when we were picked up by a large 40+ capacity bus and toted off with one-day passengers to our first stop, the wonderful town of Evora. Tour highlights along the way... More

Vasco M, Proprietário at ecoTours Portugal - Day Tours, responded to this review

We really understand your dismay when you were picked up by a large 40+ capacity bus, since you have asked for a small group tour. Nevertheless, the tour you booked “4 Days - Southern Portugal Tour” is a regular/group tour and unfortunately it’s impossible to know in advance how many people are going to do it, because we accept bookings...

Thanks to Anabela, and her top professionalism for the wonderful job she did. Everything was above my expectations, the hotels, the tours, the guides. Only one remark, the coffee in the Turim hotels was undrinkable so it was bad.

Definitely an amazing experience! From the booking experience with D. Helena, to the tour guide Filipa Carretas, to the individual attention from every crewmember in the Spirit of Chartwell this was a worthwhile experience. We highly recommend it and are planning to take the 8 day cruise next year. There are 4 tours included using the boat as the base:... More

This cruise was almost perfect, however it really faulted in the last transportation back to Porto. The cruise was really nice, with a good breakfast and a satisfying lunch. You have all the services aboard to guarantee a pleasant day. However, when we returned back by train it was a nightmare. The train was really overcrowded and I, and a... More

I was traveling with my elderly mother to Portugal and chose to book day trips with Ecotours with a personal driver rather than try to manage public transportation or rent a car. We thought using Lisbon and Porto as a base, it would be easier to visit some of the farther afield sites as day trips than packing and unpacking... More
