What to expect
Enjoy a private door-to-door transfer from Lisbon to Porto with 90 minutes sightseeing in Obidos and 150 minutes of sightseeing in Coimbra. Obidos - The Town of Queens Traditionally owned by the Queen of Portugal, every house in this hilltop town had to meet the royal aesthetic. The maze of cobblestoned streets that make up Óbidos’ striking historic centre are lined with whitewashed houses, accented with splashes of vivid yellow and blue paint, and garnished with flowers, all ensconced within the walls of its medieval castle. Since Queen Urraca was given the title of the village by King Afonso II in 1210, the several royal consorts enriched the village with donations, making it into one of the most scenic in the country. The hilltop castle has been converted into one of Portugal’s most luxurious hotels, and now offers stunning views of the city as well as incomparable accommodations. For history buffs with a sweet-tooth, the tile-bedecked main gate, Porta da Vila, leads directly into the main street, Rua Direita, which is lined with chocolate and cherry-liqueur shops. The best way to enjoy the town’s signature ginja liquor is in a small edible chocolate cup. Coimbra - The Medieval Capital of Portugal Halfway between Lisbon and Porto, this varied and captivating city has a long history and vibrant atmosphere built around the country's oldest university. The town's long history is visible by the Roman Cryptoporticus on display in the town’s Museu Machado de Castro. When the Moors conquered the city in the early 8th century, it served as a trading center for almost three hundred years – today’s Arco de Almedina gateway marks the entrance to a former Moorish medina. Shortly after the Christian Reconquista of 1064, Coimbra became the country’s capital. During this time, the Sé Velha was built, along with the Convento de Santa Cruz. The Universidade de Coimbra opened it doors in 1290, and is reputed to be the second oldest university in the world, producing many nationally and globally acclaimed academics. Immerse yourself in medieval houses "sobrado" cascading down a hillside on the east bank of the Rio Mondego: it's a multicoloured collage of buildings spanning nearly a millennium.

An excellent service!
We were planning to take a train from Lisbon to Porto. While trying to find schedules and pricing on the internet, I saw a link to my day trip. What a find! Seeing that this was door to door service with some interesting side trips sold me on the service. I asked the others what they thought and it was unanimous. Booking was super easy and pre-trip communication was excellent. The driver and vehicle were great. We had long conversations about Portugal and the places we were visiting.

Don't get me wrong, I still like the trains but I was not looking forward to once again struggling with luggage at the stations and hurrying around to get the train. It was great to be able to visit other interesting places along the way. It would be possible to do that via train, but that would require multiple tickets, a lot of planning and inefficient use of travel time. It would have been possible to do that with a rental car also but would be more stressful and involve "big city" driving in unfamiliar territory. So mydaytrip was the perfect solution to a stress free travel day.

The trip was great and we did not hesitate to use the service again for our trip from Porto to Vigo, Spain. We had equally great results. Including two stops at Ponte Dr Lima and Valenca that were not on our radar but were suggestions from mydaytrip.

We have added mydaytrip to our transportation alternatives for future trips.

Fantastic day, fantastic driver
Jul 2019 • Couples
My wife and I flew into Lisbon from the US and needed to get to Porto by that evening to check in to our AirBnB. Our original plan was to take a train, but there were sites in between Lisbon and Porto that we wanted to see. Rather than renting a car and having to deal with unfamiliar traffic patterns and driving laws, and navigating the narrow streets of some parts of Portugal, and figuring out where to park at each stop, we decided to book a driver with DayTrip.

We were lucky to have Nuno assigned to us as our driver, as he was exactly what we needed after a long and exhausting travel day and to maximize our time seeing the sights on the way to Porto. Our flight was delayed departing the US, making us arrive and get started on our day much later than we had scheduled. But Nuno didn’t mind and was there at the arrivals hall waiting for us with our name on his sign.

He helped us with our bags and got us to his car quickly. He didn’t mind when we slept due to jet lag in between stops and knew when to engage us in conversation and when to give us some quiet time. Nuno knew exactly the best places to drop us off at each location and made sure we had a plan on where to meet whenever we were done with our tour stop. He would even be “on call” by text of phone if we needed him for any reason. He was not in a rush and said multiple times that our schedule is his schedule; we will get to Porto whenever we get to Porto and his primary goal was to make sure that we got there safely and saw what we wanted to see on the way there.

We made stops at Obidos, Sao Martinho do Porto and Nazaré. Nuno told us on the way to each stop what we needed to know and also some fun facts or anecdotes about the place. He’d suggest the things we should see and encouraged us to take our time. Be the end of our trip, we felt like we were old friends and wished that we had Nuno to give us tours of Porto and to drive us from Porto to Lisbon (he was unfortunately already booked when we needed to make that trip). He definitely set the bar for drivers for us in the future.

The Mercedes vehicle was clean and comfortable and held our luggage and us just fine. They provided us each with bottles of water which was a nice touch.

Private driver from Lisbon to Porto with stops
May 2019 • Friends
We had a wonderful day. We had a driver pick us up at our hotel in Lisbon. He was on time and had a beautiful car for us. His name is Ruben and he was friendly and knowledgeable. We stopped in Obidos, Nazare, Coimbra and then to Porto. I would definitely book another trip through daytrip. It was much easier and relaxing to have a driver instead of lugging our luggage on the train and around with us all day. Thanks, daytrip.

Great experience!
Jun 2019 • Couples
We just got back from a fabulous trip to Portugal and used this service for the first time to take us from Lisbon to Porto with stops on the way. It was a great way to go, making the commute enjoyable. Our driver was Ricardo and he was lovely, very accommodating, extremely professional, I would give him more stars if I could!

Would definitely use this service again.

Thumbs Up!
Apr 2019 • Couples
My husband and I took Daytrip for many legs of our trip: Madrid to Lisbon with Antonio with stop overs in Elvas and Evora; Tomart to Porto with Igor with a stop in Coimbra and Porto to Tui withLuis and a stop over in Guimaraes.

Three thumbs up for these three daytrips!
The drivers were all exceptionally good. From being punctual in their pick up time, to driving us safely and making sure we are comfortable and engaging us with local stories not only history of the places but real everyday stories. And we also love it that they are sensitive to us - they know when to keep quiet so we can nap or my husband and I would just like the conversation between us.

Daytrip is a great way to move places.
Cheers to our drivers - Antonio, Igor and Luis! We wish them safe and happy driving always!
Thanks Daytrip for providing this service.

Apr 2019 • Family
We booked the transfer from Lisbon to Porto as the company could arrange a side trip on the way. Our driver Miguel was very reliable and communicated with us in advance before the day. He was punctual, courteous and friendly, happy to engage in conversation on the way and tried to explain the local information to us. He also helped to contact the host of our apartment making our check-in very smooth, so nice of Miguel.

It was great that we have chosen to stop Batalha, we managed to visit the impressive Cathedral on Easter Sunday and had time to walk the beautiful town. We were most satisfied to have used the transfer service.
