Just completed a self-guided hiking tour in the Duoro Valley. The experience during planning, upon arriving, and throughout the tour was excellent. The staff was communicative and the tools they provided (the GPS and Tour Guide apps) were perfect. I thought the trails were well planned - Day 1 was challenging but short, Day 2 was less challenging but longer, and Day 3 was short, leaving us enough time to relax and fit in a winery tasting/tour. We took the train there from Porto but returned by boat was a good idea for a different experience. I would highly recommend this company. Our stays at Quinta de la Rosa and Casa de Loivos were wonderful. The third accommodation (Casa De Vilarinho De S. Romão) was charming, but was a bit too rustic for my taste. However, the friendly hostess and staff and the delicious dinner that was served made up for it.

We booked the Portugal Wild Coast five-day (seven with transfers) self-guided cycling tour from Santiago do Cacém to Sagres and chose the off-road option. Fantastic scenery, with some challenging riding in spots. Most of it is through the Southwest Alentejo Nature Park, so fairly unspoiled. All the hotels were very comfortable, and the planning and organization by the PNT team is excellent. Highly recommended.

We had a 10 day walking trip of Mainland Portugal booked but had to switch to Madeira 5 days before we planned to leave due to covid restrictions. Diana and team were amazing to find us a new adventure and get it booked for us is short order. We did 11 hikes (10-20K a day) over 10 days and stayed in 7 different towns over the 2 weeks we were there. The sites were amazing and we tried all the local food and wine etc. Everything went well and the team and the drivers were very nice and treated us well. Most of the hotels were upscale and all included breakfast. I highly recommend Portugal Nature Trails.

We went to Sao Miguel Island for 8 days. Portugal Nature Trails had booked the two hotels, and suggested 5 hikes and a whale watching trip.
We booked flights.

Everything went smooth, transfer to/from airport and to/from each hike. We had nice communication with all members of the team all the way, and when we wanted little changes in the programme it was never a problem.

The island and the hikes were absolutely amazing, and I recommend arranging transport to/from hikes with a company like this, to allow good hikes.

Beyond expectations with special thanks to our guide Susana!! I participated in a one week group trip to North Portugal, made by the company Portugal Nature Trails. Susana was so lovely! Professional, intelligent, kind, friendly and with such a good energy and vibes. But mostly: Susana did everything she could to make us happy and satisfied. For example, we had picnic lunches in the nature. Susana was the one to prepare and organize it in such an amazing way, gave way extra than she should, and we simply could not take it for granted. She made our trip even more special than it already could be. Thank you Susana and thank you Portugal Nature Trails for an amazing time!

Where to start? It’s a difficult judgement call, because everything about this trip was mind blowing. Clearly said, I am in love with this country and the people anyways, Portugal is just such a precious gem stone, let’s hope the masses will stay away and Portugal will not become the next Mallorca so to speak. However, lets focus on PNT: this company and the people are awesome! From the pre-ride planning, through execution till end (returning the bike) just everything was super super well organized, with such passion and dedication, rare to find elsewhere these days. This was literally one of my best experiences in my life and I am so happy I did this tour! Many thanks to our great intern Ines, who has found this great company.
Dear PNT team: kudos, you are fantastic!

I can highly recommend the bike tour in the fresh air through landscapes and rivers. PNT has put together a really nice nature program. I would choose PNT again as the tour operator for my next bike tour. Thanks for everything and see you next time.

Much thanks to No Map Tours for the most spectacular experience in the magical land of summer palaces in Sintra. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide to explore the fairy-tale Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira masonic gardens on a private tour from Lisbon. Our guide kept us captivated and entertained with her in depth knowledge throughout the day. We were so happy to have her personal guidance through both palaces on a most unforgettable day.

We had five women on a guided hike on the Alentejo Coast. The hotels, food and hikes were wonderful. Susanna was our guide and she made the trip relaxing and so much better. Every day she would pack us lunches with different foods and snacks. It was so lovely. She went above and beyond to make sure my birthday celebration (the reason for our trip) was extra special.
I have gone on many self-guided hikes in Europe, and this was one of my favorite. The rugged coast, storks nesting, seafood, and wonderful people of Portugal made for a perfect way to turn a half century old!

PNT organized a self-guided tour for us to visit some of the most amazing Portugal’s Historical Villages. The tour, done in one of the most beautiful regions of Portugal, Beira Baixa, famous for its cheeses, sausages, wines and cherries. We did the trip in six stages starting in Fundão up to Belmonte, home town of Pedro Alvares Cabral (the Portuguese sailor that did the first trip to Brazil). The tour is full of traditions and remains of the pass. The villages are on top of the hills always surrounded by castles, the first line of defense against potential invasions coming from the east. The landscapes are wonderful and several time breathtaking. PNT designed the ways to follow and it was outstanding. The major part of the tour was done following rural trails among cherry orchards, cornfields, vineyards, cows and goats, several time with the sky guarded by magnificent birds of prey. We even spotted a dear jumping into the bush! Amazing trip! Congratulation to PNT for the outstanding trip and a perfect logistic organization. All combined a great value for money. Couldn’t be better, I say. Nonetheless, this is my third trip with PNT and each time they keep exceeding my expectations! I can’t wait for my fourth tour!
