If you are planning a trip to Portugal, you have to hire Jorge! We were looking for a ride from Porto to Lisbon with some stops along the way and a friend recommended Tours by Jorge. Jorge was wonderful! He picked us up at our hotel in Porto and drove us to Lisbon stopping in Aveiro, Nazare and Obidos. Each stop was amazing, complemented by Jorge’s vast knowledge of Portugal history. It was truly an unforgettable day. Unfortunately, we happened to be in Portugal during the COVID-19 outbreak and needed to cut our trip short and get back to the USA. This meant cancelling our tour with Jorge the next day. Not only was he understanding, but he stayed in touch with us until we were safely back home. We were so appreciative of his support and kindness during those couple of days. He really cares about his customers! Our trip to Portugal wouldn’t have been the same without Jorge. I HIGHLY recommend Tours by Jorge. You won’t be disappointed.

We were scheduled to travel to Portugal at the end of April 2020 and had been working with Jorge to be our private guide for 9 days. He was amazing at helping us plan a dream trip and made great recommendations. Unfortunately, like many, we need to modify our plans due to COVID-19. I contacted Jorge and he was nothing but gracious and understanding about our need to cancel the trip (for now). I know we will go to Portugal soon and we will definitely be calling Jorge.

We are a group of 3 friends who were travelling together in Portual. I contacted Jorge to arrange a day trip from Lisbon to the Alentejo area specifically to visit wineries. Because we had been to Evora before, we wanted to focus on wine and not sightseeing. Jorge did a great job of understanding our level of interest in wine and picked 3 contrasting places for us to visit. He balanced a smaller, family winery with the "Antinori" of Portuguese wine as well as selecting an excellent winery for lunch. Jorge made all of the arrangements and made sure the day ran smoothly. We especially enjoyed the smaller winery - it was a very personal tour with very good wines. He was very good at communication both before and during the trip and gave us a lot of interesting information about the history of Portugal as well as the area we visited. He was punctual and really tailored the trip to our wants and wishes and our time frame. It was all good. I highly recommend Jorge and would use his services again.

Jorge ( We learned it is pronounced George) was a great guide. We originally thought we wanted to see the Algarve. He asked what we wanted to see in Portugal, when we told him, he actually suggested we tour Évora & Monsaraz, 2 beautiful medieval towns in the middle of the wine country, as we aren't really beach people. What a perfect tour . He arranged for us to have lunch in the most breathtaking spot. Best view have ever had at a lunch. Then we went to a local Winery where they have bottles of wine they stored under the lake for 1 year for us to try. Finishing with visiting a local pottery business where you can see the pottery being made. We then wanted a tour in Porto a few days later and he arranged for us to have a tour with a friend of his and that was an amazing experience also All the above is great but what really is special about Jorge is his customer service. I must of spoke to him daily for weeks about different ideas. He was amazing. Will be sad to not have my pen pal anymore :) You must book a tour with him if you come to Portugal.

Jorge picked 7 of us up at our cruise ship in Lisbon and took us to see Pena Palace in Sintra. He arranged for tickets, a shuttle and a private guide for the Palace. Victor, our palace guide was wonderful and took one of our party by the arm and guided her through this magnificent site. After a thorough description of the palace along with extensive history, Jorge then drove us to the seaside for an al fresco lunch at one of his favourite restaurants. Wonderful views and excellent food. Jorge is very proud of his country and it shows in his commentary. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an exclusive tour of Portugal.
