My husband and I arranged a two week customized guided tour of Portugal with Margarida at VanGO Tourism. They are easy to communicate with and very professional. This is a top notch company and you can't go wrong booking with them. They arranged for the daily tour guide and van,,the hotels, some restaurants and all our sightseeing and admissions to museums, castles, churches, wine tastings and other attractions. Susana was our tour guide and she amazed us with her knowledge of history as well as advice on great shopping and restaurants. She was a pleasure to be with and we all had great fun together. She always made sure our needs were being met and that we were having a great time. She is also a great driver and we felt safe and secure in the comfortable and spacious Mercedes van they provided. We had a fabulous, memorable trip with VanGO Tourism.

Six of us made plans to go to Portugal in 2020, but because of Covid, we had to put it off until August 2022. In February 2022, I went online to look for the best tour company for our trip to Portugal. I found Van Go Tourism and began communicating with Margarida. Her responses to my many emails were immediate and thorough. With lots of help from Margarida and a fellow traveler, I was able to develop a 7 day itinerary which included the following:
1) Lisbon with Belem
2) Evora with Cork Factory
3) free day in Lisbon
4) Algarve
5) Sintra, Cape Roca, Cascais
6) Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca, Batalha & Fatima (overnight in Fatima).
7) Coimbra and a transfer to Porto
The itinerary was a combination of Van Go published tours and custom tours. Margarida was very flexible and told me that changes could be made as we went. Margarida also added in our transfer from the airport to our hotel upon our arrival in Lisbon.

We just got home this past Sunday and I can't say enough about our experience with Van Go! All details were taken care of, thanks to Margarida. Then we met Susana, our guide for 7 days. She was waiting for us when we arrived at Lisbon airport with a smile and hugs for all of us. She took us to the beautiful new van that fortunately, held all of our luggage! Our tour started immediately as she took us to our hotel. Susana’s knowledge of Portugal especially the history is amazing! She is passionate and so interesting. In addition to this, she is a very compassionate person, taking care of all of us. A very thoughtful person – she immediately got to know our individual needs. Also, she was very generous – treating us to the local specialties. Loved the Pastéis de Belém! As Margarida said, we were able to make changes to our tours. Susana was very flexible, allowing us to modify our days if we wanted to spend more time at a particular place or if we were tired and wanted to skip an attraction or monument. Certain tickets were purchased in advance of our trip, but most were purchased on the days we were visiting particular attractions. Susana was always able to get to the front of the line so there was no wait for tickets. In order to avoid the crowds, she also chose the ideal times to visit attractions (especially Pena Palace) and to have lunch.
When communicating with Margarida before our trip, I told her that I would love to meet her. To our surprise, Margarida met us at a pastry shop in Sintra where we were treated to the local specialty, Travesseiros de Sintra. Yum! It was so nice meeting Margarida after the months of planning!
I loved Portugal! Thanks to Susana and Margarida of Van Go Tourism for making our vacation extra special!!

WOW! If I could give a 5+++ rating I would. We just returned from a three-day tour by Van Go Tourism of Lisbon and Portugal, after a Spain cruise. From the first contact with Margarida to plan our itinerary, to the three marvelous days with Susana our guide, I can only say…touring at its best! Margarida could not have been more helpful in arranging something that would work for the 4 of us, adjusting when required and responding promptly to any inquiry. Susana was the most amazing guide! In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable and a fabulous driver, she was caring and personable. One of our group had a painful back, and she made adjustments to make sure he could get close to attractions and not miss anything. Two of us are amateur photographers and as soon as Susana knew our interest, she took us to amazing sites to capture the landscape. We all want to come back and have Van GO Tourism show us all the places we didn’t have time for this trip! Thank you Margarida and Susana!

When you go on vacation most times you’re putting your trust in a strange company to have a good time. We booked 2 tours with them. Communication was key with this company. They found out that something was closed on 1 of the days we chose. So they told us about it and asked if we move that spot to the other tour. Also we bought tickets for a place we went to on tour. We didn’t know they were included in the tour. We wouldn’t of known any better. But this company was honest and said that because of the tickets we bought on accident they would pick up admission tickets at 2 other places. Thank you for your honesty!

What an amazing tour! My husband and I were traveling with friends on a cruise that ended in Lisbon. We decided to take a couple extra days to explore a bit of Portugal. Van GO customized our tour to include sights that we were all interested in. The best part of the tour was our wonderful guide Susana! She is kind, insightful and incredibly knowledgeable. Susana made our experience perfect in every way by showing us a side of Portugal that we were not expecting! We are all excited about returning to Portugal to explore more of this beautiful country with Susana at the wheel!

We had a wonderful day in Sintra with Susana. A private guide is the best way to see this busy area, and Susana was the ideal choice. She is energetic and knowledgable, and she's very sensitive to what will make it a perfect individualized day for her guests. She went well beyond what was necessary--driving us home a longer way so we could see the beautiful coast--and we had fun talking to her and getting her insights on Portugal. Strongly recommend her and hope we'll see her again on another visit!

Van Go tourism is the TO GO company. Susanna has been an amazing tour guid, a Fountain of knowledge, thoughtful and always putting her clients first by going above and beyond. It has exceeded my expectations. If you found yourself in Lisbon and not knowing what to do, contact Van Go Tourism. Susanna took us to the Sintra where we visit the Pena Palace, the park and then we went and visit the coast with a nice meal near the ocean which was top notch. The information given was extremely informative and she knew all the best spots for photos. Excellent service.
I do not have words to express my gratitude and thanks to VanGo Tourism and Susanna in particular. Best day ever in Portugal. Thank you so much! ❤️🤗

Our family of 5 was searching on Viator and TripAdvisor the day before we wanted to visits Sintra. We wanted to see both Pena Palace and the Regaleira, but many tours made you chose one or the other. We found this tour, and were able to book it the day prior. After booking, I sent a message to ask if we could be picked up at a specific location near our AirBnB, and Margarida wrote back quickly to confirm. Her sister Susana picked us up the next morning in a nice van, full of energy, and started telling us all about Portugal right away. We LOVED her and appreciated all the extra advice and facts she threw in during the day. She stood in line for us to get transfers for mom so that she didn’t have to walk far, and gave us many restaurant recommendations. Experiencing the locations with her as a guide made it all that more memorable. Thank you Susanna!!!

Our family did a lot of research before booking this company and we were more than pleased with our tour. We started off thinking it'd be a good tour, and ended the day parting ways as what felt like friends after an AMAZING experience. Our 7 year old gave her a big hug goodbye and is still talking about the tour. He said it was the highlight of our 16 day trip all around Portugal... it probably was our highlight as well.

VanGo Tourism is a family owned and operated company. They were very professional from the beginning, answering my questions over email, providing a child seat and customizing our experience to our wishes.

We were promptly picked up in a spotless Mercedes van and taken to a full day trip to Sintra. On the way we learned a wealth of information about the history of the country, royalty and Sintra. I found myself wondering, why didn't I pick this up in the guidebooks I've been reading? I also was thinking how I wished I had understood some of these things better when we had visited Evora, Lagos, Porto and some of the other cities prior to this tour. Suzanna had said that the week prior a group had booked a tour, completed the tour and then requested she travel with them as a guide for several additional days in new cities. I completely could understand why.

There was so much value in the experience that we received. We all learned so much beyond what we would have been able to absorb. My husband and I were saying that for several days afterwards. I think we would have seen maybe 1/3 what we saw, been stressed and not learned a much had we tried it on our own. I could have just imagined us trying to read all of those tour maps....

The entire day was stress free. She navigated us through the crowds like a pro (!), through the traffic, through hidden walking paths, greeted the employees of the sights as friends, and helped us understand the history of this magical place.

Additionally which was an unexpected perk - she was amazing with my son. She was so attentive to him and helped him understand the sights - he soaked it right in. Everything was catered to our pace, it was just right.

We highly recommend this company and Suzanna as our guide. She even provided us assistance with restaurants and places to go in addition to our tour. I don't write a lot of reviews but this one was worth taking the time to share.

It's that kind of memories that we want you to take from our country. Thank you for your time and again, for this wonderful review. We hope to see you again very soon. Warm regards. Margarida
